‘Tis the season! East meets West as we bring you the ultimate Christmas shopping weekend in London.
Here at Etsy HQ, we can’t wait for December. From the 5th to the 7th of the most festive of months, you can find an array of gorgeous gifts from over 120 makers at our Christmas Pop Up Shop Etsy House in Covent Garden. That same weekend, just a short skip across town, Etsy will also be making an appearance at the acclaimed East London Design Show, opening on Thursday 4th December.
The East London Design Show turns 21 this year and, like most 21 year olds, they’re keen to celebrate in style. As well as over 100 of the best independent product, interior and jewellery designers, you can look forward to a food hall, workshops, children’s activities and a pamper room in East London Design Show’s new venue at the Truman Brewery just off Brick Lane.
To top it all off, we’re excited to announce a special Etsy area at the show. So after Etsy House, why not head on over to the Truman Brewery to continue your gift buying mission with craft and design goodies galore and the chance to meet a selection of our talented sellers in person? (We’re really spoiling you with Christmas treats that weekend.)
