meet the new kid in town

October 19, 2011 at 11:55 am 9 comments

There’s a new kid on the block in the online marketplace world, and this one is homegrown in Canada!

Zaybia is the creation of  “a couple of guys that met in college back in the early 2000’s. After four years of educational bliss split between Red Deer and Lethbridge, Alberta, [they] went [their] separate ways. [They} kept in touch of course, and as fate would have it one day [they] came up with an idea that [they] hoped would shape the future of Canadian craftsmanship forever…. ”


“an online e-commerce platform with which small business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs alike can create a free online presence and distribute their artistically unique handmade goods. ”

or more simply put … “a website where people that live in Canada and make awesome stuff can post pictures of that stuff online and sell it to other people from anywhere in the world.”

There is a directory listing the participating shops by province with Alberta being the heaviest represented at this time – what an artistic bunch!  (but they are always looking for new sellers).

How cool is that?

Time to move on over, Etsy 😉

you can find Peacock & Lime on Zaybia  –

    I have had a shop there for over a year, & although I wish they were moving a little faster to get out of beta, it definitely has promise. I hope the SEO tools improve!

      For over a year – wow! I saw your shop on the directory, too!

      Hey cindylouwho2, it’s funny you should mention that, we were just discussing SEO the other day.
      We should have some new meta tagging, etc. implemented soon, so stay tuned! 🙂

        Hi Lee – good to know! Some of my things are ranking quite decently already, so I am quite pleased. Wish I had more time to write new listings though! I will keep working on it 🙂
