Raising the Bar of Awareness

Did you do your holiday shopping yet? Were you planning on buying your special someone the same gift that everybody else gets at Target or would you rather buy something unique, something that tells a story about the artist from the extra thoughtful touches like what materials were used, instructions on how to care for the item, or what region it was made from?

Please come and shop at our First Fridays Trunk Show at Mew Gallery ( which starts at 6:30p.m. on Friday, December 7, 2007 for some terrific gift ideas made from our very talented, local artists.

You can be confident about buying handmade!

The Philly Etsy Team enjoyed much success at the Locust Arts Walk on Penn's campus earlier this month!
We sold handmade items by Etsy Team members Oceano, JenMcCleary, MWMDesigns, GraceChristie, Wondercabinet and girlscantell.
It was a great chance for faculty and students at Penn to learn about Etsy and think about buying handmade for the holidays. We look forward to many more successful shows!
