This December Etsy is partnering Team Fest and West Elm to bring a craft night to local stores. Etsy is providing a craft and four team members have volunteered their time to help demonstrate, to shoppers that show up at the event, how to create their ornament.
West Elm Holiday Event
December 1, 2011
West Elm Location, Coconut Point
Event time 6-9pm (tentative)
Our team will be represented at the local Estero West Elm store in Coconut Point. We thought this would be a great opportunity to also spread the word about our individual Etsy shops, our Florida Etsy Street Team, Etsy, and how important it is to buy handmade this holiday season by giving away 35 FEST swag bags to the first 35 people that show up to the event.
These bags will be chock full of goodies made by any of the team members that would like to promote their shops and spread the word about what they do. We wanted to let team members know now so they can start creating in time to get the goodies to me so we can assemble the bags and have them ready for the event. Team members can go to the Team Home Page on Etsy and find the discussion thread for details to sign up.
These bags are going to be a high quality natural cotton tote (14 x 16) that people can take home and reuse over and over again. The bags will have “I Support Handmade.” Printed on them along with our Team info.
