Etsy meet up in London

On Thursday 8th April, Etsy had their first London get together held at the fabulous Fashion and Textile Museum. We had the opportunity to enjoy the stunning Sanderson exhibition and meet some lovely and inspiring Etsy sellers and buyers!

I was positively surprised to bump into Robyn of RoseLullabyDolls, who makes the most amazing art dolls, which hopefully will adorn my daughters rooms at some stage :-). I met Robyn at Liberty's Open Call event earlier in the year. We stood next to each other in line for hours (totally frozen by the end of it) before we were seen!

In good old etsy fashion I was able to trade one of my vintage fabric cat purses for this beautiful Red Wire Rose Ring by Emily Mah

Emily is also an author of science fiction and fantasy no less. Check out here blog.

I also had the pleasure to meet the lovely Monika and her husband of MaaPstudio. Monika's porcelain jewellery is out of this world, I just can't stop looking at her beautiful creations.

And last but not least a big 'Thank you' to two great ladies: Amity, who was hour host and Heidi ,who took so many pictures of our wares and gave so many tips on how to improve our photography.

I thoroughly enjoyed myself and am looking forward to the next event. (As a bonus I also booked myself onto a print workshop at the Design and Textile Museum :-)
