Etsy Cambridge Pop-Up Shop in Ely

This weekend I joined my Etsy Cambridge team mates to be part of a pop-up shop in the Babylon Gallery in Ely.

The team had made origami boats to decorate the walkway and inside the gallery.

Great to see the origami boats next to real boats too, so cute.

Seeing all our work together was wonderful. 23 sellers were selected and the breadth of work was amazing! Our Etsy team has recently grown to 300 members across East Anglia, so I was proud to be a part of this pop-up.

I helped out on the drinks bar with Sarah from Purplespoon Designs.

We had refreshing summer drinks on offer as temperatures reached the late 20s.

Seeing my wall art frames hung on a gallery wall was pretty cool! My Scrabble inspired cards sold well and the best selling bicycle bracelet was popular too.

I snapped up the strawberry quartz necklace above from Weaversfield and a colouring book from Anomaly Park – it’s SO detailed and I know using it will provide a calm relief from my busy life. I couldn’t come home empty handed as there were so many great things on offer.

I also made a video of the day on my YouTube channel which you can view here or just click play below!

I am excited to announce that the Cambridge Etsy team is holding a pop up shop this month! Unfortunately it falls on a weekend that G and I have plans (for my birthday) so I wont be able to go or be involved.

Doesn’t stop me sharing it with you though! A great way to get to know some local sellers. If you can’t make it in person, why not check out the team’s Facebook page here instead?

While I’m on the subject of fairs, I’ll be shopping at Renegade Craft Fair in London on Sunday 23rd November with a few girlfriends. Last year it was brilliant and I am really looking forward to catching up with a few online pals. Give me a shout in the comments if you are going too!

Also, I’ll be selling at the biggest winter market of the year in Cambridge – Mill Road Winter Fair! The fair takes place on 6th December and you can find out more on the website here. If you like getting in the festive spirit and doing a bit of handmade Christmas shopping it is definitely worth a visit.
