Etsy Made Local: It’s A Wrap!

Leave a comment

Etsy Made Local took over cities all over the UK last weekend. It was an incredible event and I was so excited to have been asked to organise the Wrap Party at the event’s flagship venue in London. The Etsy head office staff did a fantastic job in co-ordinating so many aspects of the event, it was pretty mind-blowing to witness! Shoppers told me all weekend how lovely the atmosphere was; from the yummy hot chocolate to the live music; getting to meet all the talented makers/designers and free gift wrapping. Win! It was very different to manic Oxford Street and even Carnaby Street.

One of my favourite things about it was that it felt like a carefully curated exhibition but without all the pretentiousness that the fine art world can occasionally emit. It was wonderful to see all the shoppers having a giggle with the makers/designers and even a cute little pooch having a mosey round!

The whirlwind of a weekend started off with a press preview on Friday. I was excited to wrap up Lucie Ellen’s design your own bunting necklaces; Jo Heckett’s gorgeous ceramic decorations and the other lovely items the press snapped up. It was also a pleasure to get to meet some awesome bloggers and magazine editors!

Once we opened on Friday afternoon to the public we had an AMAZING team of wrap party volunteers from the London Local Team.
