Welcoming Etsy to Singapore!
In May we had the privilege of working with the Etsy team on hosting an event while they were here for #EtsymeetsSingapore. We are sure many of you are familiar with Etsy, the online marketplace where many buy and sell unique handmade items. Sharing with the creative scene in Singapore and meeting up with many current Etsy sellers and buyers, the team helped many learn how they could become Etsy affiliates. Current Etsy users also brushed up on tips to help them to better use the platform.
For the event held at the new Bloesem headquarters, not only did we get to work with the friendly Etsy team, we also partnered up with local brands like Fresh Pressed juice and Popaganda for treats for our guests.
Thanks to Rebecca Toh, we can look back fondly on images of the day! Shall we take you on a short trip down memory lane?
The day started off with bottles of freshly pressed FP juices. Healthy and refreshing, always a great beverage for the Singapore heat.
Hidhir, a local musician we were introduced to, provided the perfect acoustic vocals to entertain the guests as they grabbed some refreshments and mingled. We realized that live music is always a great idea for such events! He really set the tone for the entire day.
The Etsy team presented their Spring/Summer 2015 catalogue and shared more about their affiliate program.
An endless flow of yummy snacks kept everyone’s tummies satisfied..
To promote the handmade movement in Singapore, the Bloesem Team decided to host one of our favourite Bloesem classes, Candle-making, during the event. Using soy wax and botanical essential oils, participants were able to make candles with their favourite scents to take home as a keepsake!
These cold treats were a hit.. Shockingly healthy, the Popaganda popsicles, are made with local produce and contain no dairy or preservatives. Totally guilt-free! A great way to wrap up the event.
We want to extend a BIG thank you to the Etsy team for being a joy to work with and for everyone who attended the event! It was an absolute pleasure to work with FP juice, Popaganda and Rebecca Toh our favourite photographer. Everyone left with a belly full of tasty goodness and a self-made candle..
If you have not experienced the wonderful world of Etsy, we would highly suggest it! If you are a creator, become an Etsy affiliate.. or if you just like supporting and buying handmade items, Etsy is the best place for that. Don’t take our word for it, have a go at it yourself.. you won’t be disappointed! The Bloesem Team have been long time shoppers and enthusiasts of Etsy, so hosting this event was definitely a dream come true for us!
