Birch + Bird Vintage Home Interiors » Blog Archive » Grand Opening: West Elm Vancouver
I especially love that West Elm now features a select number of Etsy artisans, like one of my favourites, Heather Dahl (Dahlhaus will be coming soon to Spruce Collective too, by the way!). What an amazing boost of confidence and exposure for small local artisans and entrepreneurs!

How Much Tech Can One City Take? | Modern Luxury
No techie myself, I learned to love the quirky and deeply individualistic geek culture. Engineers were my comrades-in-arms in the revolution against top-down, corporate communications. The ones who made a difference at Salon—like Chad Dickerson, our crack webmaster and now CEO of Etsy, and investor John Warnock, who also cofounded Adobe—had artistic souls. They were deeply concerned about the direction of the country and believed that Salon’s voice needed to be heard.

TEDxBKLYN « an aussie girl in new york
I really loved the synergy he drew between #ows and events like hack days—not everything is all clear and designed upfront and it takes a while to shake out the bugs. #ows really does have that beta attitude. A great example of modern day non-tech hackers.

Why Shop Local? Local businesses return 80% of each dollar to the community: Sylvia Wyant. | elephant journal
"Chains and franchises, on the other hand, contribute roughly 40%, and as little as 20% of sales back to your community. And many big boxes, such as Walmart or Home Depot, are given tax-incentives by local governments—costing you far more than the discounted price you think you’re paying."

When business feels homelike | Beyond Berlin
"A little too American for my taste how the Etsy family presented itself, but in the end I received an entertaining and informative mix of awesome-American stories, like Dickerson’s speech on ‘Finding your Courage’, local reports from the Prinzessinnengarten in Berlin and the success story of SuperJam inventor Fraser Doherty from Scotland, who convinced with his juvenile charm."
