What have I been up to in the past few months, you may ask.... Well....lots has happened! Where to begin? Back in mid-July, I thought it would be a good idea to meet face-to-face with fellow Etsy sellers from my hometown of Adelaide. I organised a meet-up and met 6 other lovely people for coffee and a chat! I felt so motivated and inspired, that I've continued organising these meet-ups. Not long after the first one, I was asked by the Adelaide Etsy team captain to join up as a second team leader! So I accepted! Not long after that, news arrived via Etsy Australia, about a proposed collaborative effort by all Etsy teams to hold a Christmas pop-up shop event in most capital cities across Australia and around the world!!! An offer too good to refuse! Our humble Adelaide team accepted. Since then, we've worked hard to find a venue and steer the team towards our first ever pop-up shop. I've met numerous team members, market sellers and organisers, as well as some lovely ladies from Etsy Australia. It's been a great journey – all because I 'stuck it out' with this hobby biz of mine. To cut a long story short, I came across this article on the Etsy Australia blog - I'd forgotten all about it - my half page of fame he he!!! See the actual article here for more information about the Adelaide event. If you don't live in Adelaide, there's bound to be an Etsy Christmas pop-up shop near you!
