This week the Dorset Team takes a peek at what another Etsy UK Team are doing in the run up to Christmas. Brighton Etsy Team are holding an amazing Pop Up Shop in Brighton Square, an absolute must if you are passing by!
The Brighton Etsy Sellers Team is made up of more than 600 local designer-makers who all sell their work via Etsy.com, a global online handmade marketplace. This November for the first time the team will be taking their products from online to a bricks and mortar shop in Brighton’s South Lanes for a month long Pop-up.
The 25 featured designers were picked from a long list of applicants by local creative duo Super+Super, who will be releasing their first craft books nationally this autumn. The team have been working with We Are Pop-up to find the location for the shop, and have also gained support from the Etsy head office. The shop will be open for four weeks in the run up to Christmas, with a wide variety of handmade and vintage items available; from prints, greetings cards and home furnishings, to jewellery, clothes, accessories and one-off unique finds. The shop will also be a creative hub for the month, with workshops and crafty activities taking place, and the chance to meet the designers behind the gifts you buy this festive season.Team captain Karli Dendy says; ‘We’re excited to bring what we do online to a wider, local audience; to a place where people can physically see and hold the products that we all spend so much time designing and making. The shop is going to have a huge variety of items and will be a perfect opportunity to find a unique gift in the run up to Christmas’. To find out more about the pop up you can visit the team blog
