Get involved with #EtsyForMe

Want to give your homeware and fashion products some love and exposure? We’ve teamed up with five UK influencers to showcase the best summer design solutions on Etsy

We’ve posed five classic summer style dilemmas to five of our favourite influencers, and they’re looking for YOUR suggestions for the perfect fit. At the end of every week across June and July they’ll be choosing their favourite submissions from #EtsyForMe to feature on their popular Instagram accounts, and we’ll also be regramming their winning solutions on @EtsyUK, too.

Perhaps you’ve got a whole host of gorgeous decor suitable for family barbecues, kid’s parties or gatherings with friends? Model and presenter, Georgia Jones is your girl. If it’s more of a festival or holiday vibe that you cater for, with capsule wardrobe-worthy fashion, get your suggestions in to style maven, Sophia Rosemary. Outdoor/indoor transitional spaces are the theme of choice for self-confessed, interiors-obsessed Lisa Dawson, and if your wares are perfect for sprucing up the spare room, share them with textile artist, Mary Maddocks. Finally, for everyone creating keepsakes and future heirlooms, new mum Candice Brathwaite is looking for all things nursery-related.

Running a similar campaign at Christmas time last year saw many of our sellers enjoying the benefits of such far-reaching cross-promotion. Taking part in December’s #EtsyForYou, Katy Howieson of What Katy Did Next said: “I was lucky enough to catch the lovely Fran of The Fashion Lift’s eye. After Fran and Etsy shared the image of my Pink Flamingo Tassel Earrings on their Instagram accounts I noticed a substantial rise in followers, enquiries for bespoke earrings and a good flow of orders – not just for the featured product but for my other wares too. It was a lovely boost in the festive period and it was great to help so many amazing customers with their last minute Christmas shopping. I’m now working with followers I gained from this experience with their bridal orders!”

So what are you waiting for? Curate your favourites and get tagging.

    Great campaign idea, it's a shame though that UK shops weren't used for your images.. as it's a UK based campaign and the three images you've used from shops are from Ukraine, Greece and Malaysia...
