So what is Etsy you may well ask? Etsy is a marketplace where people around the world connect to buy and sell unique goods. Their mission is to re-imagine commerce in ways that build a more fulfilling and lasting world. Come and visit the Etsy pop-up shop in Covent Garden for three days only in December.
Etsy has invited designer-makers from across the UK to take part in Etsy House, a unique shop where every single item on sale is handmade by designers who work with the online shop. During the three days Etsy House is open designer-makers will host creative workshops and will be making personalised items live in store. Workshops on personalised letterpress stationery, hip flask engraving, custom jewellery and other crafty endeavours.
The London Etsy House is sure to attract attention – not only is it well timed for Christmas shopping, it also follows the success of Etsy’s first ever pop-up shop in Soho, New York, in 2013 which attracted over 20,000 visitors during the 10 days it was open. And this is the first time the same thing is being done outside the US.
Etsy House opens in Covent Garden for three days on the 5th December 2014 selling a curated selection of some of the best that Etsy, the online craft and design store, has to offer from across the UK.
