One of the things we love about Etsy is that it gives artisans a chance to get their handmade goods out into the world. Now, the online emporium is giving a select crew of shop owners even more exposure with the first ever Etsy Road Trip! From August 1 to 9, a group of Canadian creators will hit the pavement making stops in Montreal, Ottawa, Kingston and Toronto. We've been fans of some of these shops for ages and we can't wait to meet these makers in person.
Of course, when we go on a fantastic voyage, we like to pack light — just a few wardrobe essentials so that there's room for souvenirs in our luggage. We then add variety to our outfits with accessories. So to get ready, we've selected the following favourites from participating jewellery designers.
You can discover even more vendors on the Etsy Canada Road Trip tumblr or follow the hashtag #etsyroadtrip on Instagram. And to help you get more handmade into your life, Etsy Canada is giving one lucky reader a $100 Gift Card (keep reading for details).

Okay, the clutch isn't jewellery, but you need something to carry your bijoux in!
