Etsy Open

Maybe you have already heard me shouting it out on facebook:


Etsy NL is opening their doors in september!


They will be doing this in collaboration with Open | makers on the market.

This month Dutch Etsy entrepeneurs can be found in a cute pop-up store in Leiden, where we will sell our stuff, and give workshops.

Definitely worth a visit (eg to find delicate, simple lamps by Studio Snowpuppe, upcycled design by Babongo, and the coolest illustrations by Marloes Kroeze and the always admired Kim Welling). It’s a wonderful chance to get acquainted with the Etsy community outside the digital highways.


Come and meet me there!
