I will be attending Etsy Made in Leiden, the first local market organized by Etsy sellers in The Netherlands! Four cities – Leiden, Amsterdam, Utrecht and Maastricht are hosting local markets for local Etsy sellers where you can meet your favourite creators and stock up on holiday gifts.
It was my pleasure to help organize the Leiden market together with three fantastic colleagues (Alyssa from Stitchonomy, Megan from MeganMcNulty and Rosa from De Cartograaf). We set up a market with over 40 sellers to showcase the diverse range of handmade products that Leiden & surroundings has to offer.
There will also be two workshops – Handlettering Christmas Cards with FranwiththePen, and a workshop in Snappapp vegan leather (!) by Carla of Meet & Make. Live music will be played by Willem Kroess on guitar. And all this in the spectacular old distillery of Scheltema, in the heart of Leiden looking our over the old canals and tall row homes.
The market is hosted from 11am to 5pm. Of course I will be there with my market stand selling my handmade Japan-inspired items. See you then!
