“Something Different” successfully brought Etsy to the offline world. This was an exciting event for adorable handcrafted goods lovers! The Leederville Arena hosted this three-days event featuring stalls from Etsy. As this offline Etsy festival supported local talented WA creatives, all products must be designed, crafted and manufactured in Western Australia.
Visiting this pop up event on the last day, the crowd was still eager to see the beautifully produced works of WA artisans and artists. Some of the stall-holders that manufactured handcrafted jewelleries included One Happy Leaf, Eden Dreams, and Slinky Lizard. Northbridge-based Ruck Rover General Store also participated in the event selling their new Christmas cards and other treats. Other WA’s gifted artisans who showcased their products also included Ilkay Dere from Art of Mud, who was selling handmade ceramic designs, Celia Bavcevich from Ce C’s Cakes offering their delicious brownie and cookie mix in a jar, and K Gets Organised showcasing her colorful stationery, planners, gifts, and cards!
This marketplace successfully connected brilliant artisans and artists with local art enthusiasts to experience their unique, high quality handcrafted goods. We definitely enjoyed a vibrant festive mood on a hot sunny day and are excited to see more upcoming WA talents showcased in our lovely city, Perth.
