Etsy in Australia!!

Typographic Australian City Print by ButtercupInk

Oops....I'm a bit late with this but most of you would know about it already (and you should have received the newsletter I sent out about it if you're in the Sydney Etsy Team).

Etsy admin Matt Stinchcomb is in Sydney right now!  Tomorrow afternoon (Saturday) there's a special 'Etsy meetup and chat with Matt' @ the western foyer of the Opera House (outside the playhouse theatre). It starts at 4pm and there'll be a chance to ask questions and share your etsy experiences. 

Hope to see some of you there! I spotted Matt this evening, so can confirm that he does indeed exist, and is in the country right now! :)

Matt is heading to Melbourne on Sunday, but it appears that the Melbourne meetup is full.

Hello! Helena reporting from Perth. If you are in town, check out Montage Collective in Fremantle. I popped in this week and had so much fun browsing around! I love the concept, and what a great initiative, supporting Handmade and local talent!

BrisStyle's Handmade Ark - Queensland Floods

Further to yesterday's post about what I'm doing to help raise funds for the Queensland Flood appeal, here's some more fabulous sellers donating their time and money towards the cause!

The wonderful crafters of the BrisStyle street team have come together (as all good teams do) to consolidate their efforts to raise badly needed funds for the victims of the flooding here in Queensland.
