Our Mission

Vancouver Etsy Collective empowers creative entrepreneurs by providing resources, education, and opportunities to grow. Our members are inclusive and supportive Designers, Creatives and Makers from the greater Vancouver area who are interested in sharing knowledge, building their business and making meaningful community connections.


BriteUp – Etsy YVR to Vancouver Etsy Collective

Earlier this year, we met to plan what was next for BriteUp and agreed it was time to refresh our brand. Since our start in 2017, we have grown and though our values remain the same, we wanted a brand that would truly reflect our vision and emphasize the community aspect of our values. We knew “Vancouver Etsy Collective” would do just that!


Etsy Teams

Etsy Teams are groups run by members, for members, to provide support to one another. Each group comes together for different reasons—some connect members who live in the same area; others sell items in similar categories; and some groups are created around a common interest; like woodworking, photography, or marketing.

As part of a Team, you have access to advice, inspiration, and growth opportunities. Members often come together around initiatives like local selling events, collaborative social media campaigns, and educational workshops. Teams are not employed by Etsy Canada.
