Etsy UK Meetup

Last night I attended the Etsy UK meetup at Grand Union in Farringdon. It was great to meet the Etsy UK staff members and also Etsy's CEO, European Director and 2 girls from the Brooklyn office, but also great to meet other sellers, buyers and just general Etsy enthusiasts! I've met quite a few of the Etsy staff before at the Etsy Holiday Party in Brooklyn last winter, but it was great to be able to meet everyone again, this time minus the jetlag and major confusion!

Etsy UK have meetups a few times a year all around the country, and they are open to all to attend! The best way to keep up to date with Etsy UK and meetup and events news is to follow them on Twitter or Facebook. It's such a fantastic feeling to be in a room filled with such hardworking, creative, determined and kind people!

Question time where people could ask about what's coming next to Etsy and make suggestions of things they would like to see on the site

Chatting with other sellers

Some postcards from the Etsy look book.. There were tote bags too!

All in all a fantastic night (with free wine and pizza!) If you're interested in Etsy or even just meeting other creative people I would definitely advice attending one of these events!
