Etsy Made Local – St Ives  :  Friday 1st December to Sunday 3rd December 2017 Guildhall, St Ives

Together with my fellow Etsy Makers Cornwall team members we have begun organising this year’s Etsy Made Local – St Ives event.  The Etsy Made Local initiative is sponsored by Etsy.com.  Each year around the UK local Etsy sellers get together to organise events, and this year is going to be bigger than ever with over 50 Etsy teams around the UK organising their unique events.  Last year we held our first Etsy Made Local event at the Guildhall in St Ives last year, and it was so successful, with over 2,500 visitors through the doors over the weekend.  It had such a great atmosphere, and was enjoyed by both visitors and vendors.  We are a friendly bunch of artisans, artists, designers and makers, so it was a pleasure to get together for the weekend.

Friday 1st December is late night shopping in St Ives, and we are planning a Preview evening with music, food and drink. Saturday and Sunday will have a pop up cafe running throughout the weekend.


Creative Meet Ups:

I’ve seen a need for small businesses like myself to meet up on a regular basis to chat and share useful information, and so have started organising creative meet ups and invited people who have pertinent knowledge and skills that I think would help creative businesses like myself to come and talk at these get togethers.  I’m having a bit of a break over the summer, but will start organising these again in September.
