Happy Birthday EtsyRain!
*UPDATE* - Etsy liked our gift so much that they made a little video "reopening" our gift. The first video got accidentally taped over, OOPS! But, we loved that they reinacted the opening for us. Here it is.
What on earth is an EtsyRain you may ask. EtsyRain is the Seattle Metropolitain Street Team for Etsy.com. Our team was founded a year ago by Carrie of Glitzconcepts (Finny's Funny Fleece) in August of 2007. In celebration of the event many of our memebers pitched in to send the gang at Etsy.com a little birthday present. The team has been a great support to me an all its members and we couldn't wait to give back.
Marlo of I Make Cute Stuff has taken over the helm and is steering EtsyRain into a really exciting second year! With plans for group booths at various local events, promotions, and a new website in the making we have a lot to look forward to.
The artists and artisans of EtsyRain are as diverse as the faces of Seattle's residents. Amongst our members you will find everything from handmade knits and organic soaps to beautiful one of a kind jewelry pieces and fantastic photography. Our shows will surprise you, and I dare you to walk away empty handed! Just take a look at a few of our member shops or our blog and see for yourself. If you are in the Seattle/Tacoma area keep a look out for that crazy word "EtsyRain" we might just be coming to a show near you!
