asking for trouble

Etsy Made Local Glasgow

Nice to see everyone at #etsymadelocal today and I'm excited to set up tomorrow.

I had an awesome time at the Etsy Made Local market at the weekend, both as a shopper and a seller.

It's been really busy and I'm starting to sell out of a few things. Sad bitten Cookies are winning the character popularity contest today!

As usual, my stall display only came together the night before but I was quite pleased with my last minute brooch display! Sad Bitten Cookie was the surprise hit of the day so there’s no more brooches left this year. I will be getting a few more stamps though.

And here’s my full stall shortly before opening. Big thanks to everyone who came down and said nice things and bought stuff! I look forward to this market every year and no longer bother doing any others as it’s by far the most successful one. The Glasgow Etsy Team do an amazing job organising it.

Big thanks to everyone who came down to #etsymadelocal today! I had an amazing time and now back home with a lovely new pot for my cactus by @ceriwhitestudios 🌵💚

I can’t share my purchases as most of them were for my Secret Santa but I did treat myself to this lovely polka dot ceramic pot for my cactus by my stall neighbour Ceri White. I love it a lot!
