VENUE CHANGE – Jumpstart Your Creative Enterprise With Blurb, Etsy and MOO handmade and vintage goods

Update: Due to unforeseen circumstances, this Friday’s event has been moved to a different venue: Eastcastle House, 27-28 Eastcastle Street, London, W1W 8DH. Map.

Blurb are launching their first ever London pop-up and have invited Etsy UK, MOO and you to run riot on Friday November 5. Happy days!

In case you don’t know about these friends of ours, Blurb believe passionately in the joy of books and on their website you’ll find a creative self-publishing service that we think is top-notch, whether you create a portfolio of your work or take the leap as an entrepreneurial author. Our other buddies at MOO are just as enthusiastic about supporting freelancers and small businesses and their printing services are truly fabby for networking and creating a visual identity for your micro-brand.

The MOO crew are getting their knickers in a twist about meeting our UKers in person and want to hand-deliver your order to you at the pop-up, which means you won’t be charged for shipping and handling! Hurry though, orders must be placed before 11:59 p.m. on October 28, 2010. Place your order HERE.

When: Friday, November 5, 2010. Workshops are 12 – 4 p.m. Party 6:30 – 10 p.m.

Where: 22 Newman Street, London, W1T 1PH.  Now at Eastcastle House, 27-28 Eastcastle Street, London, W1W 8DH. Map.

What: Anda is popping over from the Etsy Labs in Berlin to share insights about running your micro-enterprise and why branding is important, even for the tiniest crafty shop. We’ll have workshops throughout the afternoon on everything from how to take professional photos of your items to examples of creative, effective and DIY branding in action. There will also be a bespoke bookmaking seminar and in the evening we’ll be hosting an Etsy + MOO meet-up.
