London Shopping

Etsy Made Local + Win lots of Etsy Goodies!

Christmas Etsy Made Local


Etsy Made Local London 2015

You might already know that I <3 Etsy – Remember that time I went to Brighton to meet a group of local sellers? Well now I’m getting involved in an awesome project with them and you could get involved too!

I’ve been so inspired just by browsing my weekends away on Etsy, plus I’ve felt pretty good about supporting young creative businesses. That’s why when they asked if I’d like to create my own mini edit for their Etsy Made Local event, I was jumping on the ceiling!

Etsy Made Local gives you the chance to shop straight from the makers in your local area so you can see, touch and takeaway unique, hand made items just in time for Christmas! Think clothes, food, toys, art and homeware. At the London event there’ll be pressie wrapping masterclasses, nibbles and artisan coffee for you to sip as you peruse over 50 stands for the perfect gift and admire the walls of inspiration.

I’m so excited to have my Etsy picks featured on a wall along with 4 other really cool bloggers including The Frugality and Little Big Bell. And you’re excited because you can shop from or win my picks just by instagramming my wall at the event and tagging @Etsy_UK and @ShinyThoughts! Better get on down there!
