Winter Market with Etsy Leiden

I’m very excited to share this report on the Winter Market with Etsy Leiden that I helped organize over the past few months! Right before I joined Etsy Leiden, a group of Etsy sellers had a small popup shop called “Even Open” in an old book store in Leiden’s main shopping street. When they had to move out they were looking for another popup store or possibly market to keep selling live instead of just online.

Right around this time I worked at Handwerkstudio Leiden at the Vollersgracht, a nice location in the centre of Leiden. So we joined forces and organized a 2-day mini market for those Etsy sellers! Below are some pictures of that Winter Market.

Not pictured because the pictures turned out too blurry (sorry!)
