West Elm Etsy Event

March 05, 2012 | FILED UNDER: Uncategorized

Last weekend my sister and I had a fun afternoon outing to an event at the West Elm in Chicago.   They had invited a handful of their favorite Etsy sellers to showcase their crafts at their store.  I think it was such a great idea to partner with Etsy – smart for the West Elm brand to associate itself with independent artisans, and a lot of fun for people like my sister and me to attend!

The event drew a good crowd, but West Elm had done a great job of limiting the number of vendors and spacing them nicely throughout the store so it wasn’t a zoo in there.  Custom pillows, letterpress cards and prints, jewelry, and screen printed t-shirts were among the goods for sale.

They even had a DJ and a photo booth….

Heather and me goofing off in the photo booth:
I couldn’t resist making one purchase there… I found the cutest necklace that I think ties in nicely to my Designed Improvised logo.  I plan to wear it to all future design meetings with my clients 😉
