Over the past 4 days (12-15 September 15), crafters and makers from the Etsy Berlin Street Team have had their spot in the lime light. As part of a wider campaign by Etsy called “Zuhause in deiner Stadt“, a selection of 36 designers have participated in a unique pop up shop, giving them a chance to sell on the high street.
The shop was delightfully curated with each artist contributing a select range of their products. A huge variety of products included homewares, interior decorations, jewelry, stuffed toys, ceramics, textiles, art prints and much more. The chance to touch and feel was a great asset that only a presence on the high street can give.
The shop design, placed the emphasis squarely on the products. Branded with the unmistakable Etsy branding this shop could have been a permanent fixture. I was so glad I caught it just in time and look forward to seeing more in the future.
You can find a great list of all the participating creatives here plus a great interview with the organisers.
