I'm really pleased to be able be tell you that there will be things from secret minouette places in the Etsy Showcase at Fall Home Show, October 3 to 6, 2013! This is a huge show, held at the Better Living Centre, Exhibition Place. The Etsy Showcase will be in Booth #328; it will contain a carefully curated living space decorated with handmade Canadian Etsy goods, selected by HGTV! The selected Etsy sellers will also be featured on the HGTV website. If you're going to the show, be sure to visit and get special deals in all the shops represented.

I think this is a great opportunity! I've been taking it easy this fall and am not planning to do many shows in the lead-up to the holidays. I was really flattered to be accepted to sell in the Rising Stars section of the One of a Kind, but I had to regretfully decline, since I'm expecting a baby during the show. They were very understanding of course. I love that this is a way to participate in a show on a similar scale, without having to be present, selling all of the time, and without having to have huge amounts of stock prepared, all of which might be a bit too gruelling right now. So this opportunity turned up at just the right time for me!

I'm also pleasantly surprised that the works selected by HGTV are all seriously sciencey (that's a word, right?). I had imagined they would want works which make for pretty home decor or strong graphic design- and not that science-themed prints don't - but I didn't expect that they would particularly select interactive, colour-changing, thermochromic prints about quantum mechanics, or organic chemistry, or genetics.
