Berlin’s DIY scene was in full effect last Thursday to celebrate the opening of the Etsy Labs. People were rocking the dance floor, filling up on Bratwürstchen, and admiring our lovingly curated exhibition with fashion accessories from around the world. It was a great success!
The first of our three display modules, finished just in time, made a terrific showplace for all the accessories. Here are a few of the pieces:
All the beautiful accessories made it hard for the ladies to keep their hands off, and frankly, I can’t blame them.
Bags were discussed and drooled over (and almost always followed with the question, “Where can I get one?”). In short, the presence of these many wonderful products created quite a stir.

In the main space we featured a slideshow representing fashion picks from Etsy artists.

We are so happy to have kicked off our launch with such a fantastic party! We can’t thank everyone enough for contributing in one way or another to the success of the event.
All the best from Etsy Labs Berlin,
About Postcards from Europe:
Berlin-based Etsy Admin, Matt and Benedikta send postcards back to the Etsy offices in Brooklyn updating us all on Etsy’s European operations. We never know from where they will be sent, what they’ll say, or how they’ll say it (video, song, photos, interpretive dance).
