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.

Etsy-Cambridge-Pop-Up-ShopThe weather has been glorious in the UK this last week, so plenty of people were out to shop at this beautiful riverside location.


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!



Etsy Cambridge Handmade Fair

Last year I joined the Etsy Cambridge team and I went to my first meet-up recently. I left feeling so excited and motivated by my fellow sellers and knew I had become part of something pretty awesome.

We are planning some exciting events around Cambridge in the next few weeks and I’d love to share them with you today!


On 28 February you can find Claireabellemakes in the historic Round Church in Cambridge city centre for our handmade fair. I’ll be selling lots of goodies from the Etsy store and some new designs which haven’t yet made it online!

There will be a vintage pop-up tea room and lots of other handmade sellers, so please come along and support us if you can. All the info is in the flyer above!
