Wow, wow, WOW! Etsy Made Local Glasgow was amazing!
I dubbed up at about ten to eleven on Saturday with my volunteer hat on. The queue was down the street and stayed that way all day, although it did move quite quickly, there was a constant stream of people joining the end. My fellow orange-aproned volunteers and I were all about keeping everyone happy, doing tea/coffee and change runs for the vendors and handing out chocolates to the lovely people waiting to come in.
Today at #EtsyMadeLocal. A huge success for the @glasgowetsy team again this year, queued out all day! In case you are wondering, yes it was me in the stripy hat running back and forward with the teas and coffees and giving out sweeties to the lovely people waiting to come in! I'll be there with my jewellery tomorrow 😁 PS. Posting these pictures again as most of them didn't show up in my previous post for some reason 🤷♀️
About 4pm, I was ready to make my escape and get back to prepping for Sunday. I did manage to grab a few bits before I left though!
On Sunday, we’d made it into the Sunday Herald and it was looking to be another record breaking day. I was unaware of all this at the time as I was busy setting up and once the doors opened I don’t think I looked up until 2 o’clock! What a buzz! Only problem was I was too busy to shop, what I great problem to have!
That evening, at home with a glass of wine and a big grin on my face, I turned to the Facebook vendors group to give my thanks to the Glasgow Etsy Team leadership for organising another hugely successful event. I spent the next wee while reading through all the similarly gushy messages from other vendors, it gave me such a warm feeling to be part of such an amazing event (and no, it wasn’t just the wine!). Thank you Glasgow Etsy Team and everyone who came along to Etsy Made Local 2017!!
