Etsy Made in France – Bagnolet 2018

Snippets of a lovely day!

First, setting up everything. I enjoy this bustle, observing how people make do with the space they are given, sometimes great and sometimes not convenient at all, what idea they’ve had to decorate their stall and expose their products.

When we are ready, most of us offer help to the overwhelmed organisers. We covered the streets  with balloons and helpful arrows provided by Etsy to show the way from the subway to the event room. We’ve had to be a tad rebellious about it at some point.

Then it’s all a matter of waiting, chatting with both clients and vendors, making a few sales and generally having a good time.


Then the day ended with a nice walk in Paris by dusk with friends.

Etsy Made In France 2016

Shop news!

I will participate in Etsy Made In France this year, on November 26th and 27th in Paris. Check out the event on Facebook!


Etsy Made in France is a large market for handmade products, organised by the Etsy teams, all volunteers, like me. With the help of Etsy France, we are in charge of the Parisian market; there will be others all around France.

The Paris event will be held at Elephant Paname, a gorgeous, former Parisian hôtel particulier now mostly used as a dance center. Around 40-50 Parisian Etsy sellers will be there to sell their handmade products and offer DIY workshops. An excellent occasion to do some early Christmas shopping and meet nice creative people (I know many of them, they are quite cool)!

I am currently working my arse off to be ready in time, which explains why I am a bit absent on social media these days. I will put up all the information on the blog and my Facebook page as it comes.

Share this event, invite your friends, come and see us!
