The doors to Etsy House, our first ever UK Christmas pop-up shop, officially opened today, hurrah!
We’ve already introduced you to a (mere) selection of the 100+ UK sellers whose lovely wares will make Etsy House feel like a real home, as well as sharing their progress pics with you as they prepped their stock for the store.
Now, you can get a glimpse of some of the beautiful items you will find inside Etsy House. We really hope you can make it over the weekend, but for those that can’t, make sure you follow @EtsyUK on Instagram and Twitter where we’ll be sharing all the fun on our feeds.
PLUS! Play ‘whose house is it, anyway?’ over on our Facebook page (desktop only) for your chance to win a £250 Etsy gift card. Oh, it’s like an Etsy House party, all weekend…
Alison’s aim is to create bags, purses and accessories that are practical and robust as well as attractive. I want them to accompany you through life’s high summits as well as through everyday small moments, like faithful companions.
Wool and the Gang
Wool and the Gang pioneers fashion production that’s made in a sustainable – and cool! – way, and that brings back knitting as a viable means of production for generations to come.
As well as buying their knitted and nice goods, you can also attend a workshop, led by the Gang, and learn how to make your very own snood. Or, failing that, you can always get the guys to customise a pompom hat and claim it as your own…

“After a brief career in law I began my professional creative life, which includes interior styling and designing, elaborate cake making and an eye for creative solutions for products in the home.

The 8Ball Cyclery was founded by James just over a year ago after he became fed up with working a desk job. James now collaborates with makers all over Europe to develop stylish products, from handmade aluminium bike lights in Scotland to wooden mud guards in Italy.
