Every year at Christmas, loads of gift-buyers visit Etsy.com. This coming season, we’re excited to bring our sellers’ items directly to shoppers on the ground with our very own pop up!
This December, we’ll be launching Etsy House, our first ever UK pop-up shop for three days in London. Located in the heart of Covent Garden, the event will feature products from UK Etsy sellers across multiple categories: art, home decor, bath & body, clothing, jewellery, furniture, stationery, and more. Like our magical New York Holiday Pop-up Shop, shoppers will be able to buy gifts in person.
Our New York pop up was great fun and successful too. During the 10-day event, we hosted over 20,000 guests; 50% of them had never bought from an Etsy seller before. We’re so excited to get the word out about Etsy to loads of new buyers with this season’s event.
If you have an active shop on Etsy, there are a couple of ways to get involved:
1. Nominate your item to be sold at Etsy House APPLICATIONS NOW CLOSED We are looking for beautiful Etsy products from the UK that make great gifts for our Christmas pop up. If you’d like to see your items on the shelves, apply here by midnight 8 September! 2. Nominate an item to showcase at Etsy House APPLICATIONS NOW CLOSED Etsy House is also looking for a few one-off, inspiring pieces to showcase. We are looking for big, impactful items that really highlight the talent and craftsmanship here in the UK. You can nominate any of your items that are currently for sale on Etsy, but keep in mind we are looking for big statement pieces like gorgeous furniture, large scale artworks, striking vintage finds (like a suit of chainmail) or bold light installations.
