I love Etsy and recently sourced my wedding
invitations all the way from a seller in Texas through the site. I’ve also got
my eye on a couple of other wedding related items I’m planning to purchase in
the not too distant future.
I was excited to hear that Etsy are planning on bringing the
‘website to life’ at shopping events in 11 cities this weekend. ‘Etsy Made Local’ is the perfect
Christmas shopping opportunity especially, if like me, you’re looking for unique
handmade gifts but don’t actually have the time to make them yourselves.
I’m planning on going to the flagship London event at Soho’s
Vinyl Factory this Friday which starts at 4pm and will be on all weekend.
I’ve been told there will be over 50 local makers selling
everything from toys to clothes, artisan foods, art and homewares. And if that
was fabulous enough, you’ll be able to get things personalised there and then.
I’m a little bit cack-handed when it comes to wrapping, so I plan to visit the wrapping station and learn to wrap like a
pro. Hopefully my friends and family will think i’m secretly one of Santa’s
elves by the time i’m finished.
Let me know if you’re planning on going and I might see you there. I’ll be the one hanging round the wrapping station trying to pick up some tips.
