DISCOVER WHY WE SHOULD SHOP MINDFULLY, AND HOW TO DO IT, AT THE ETSY GOOD STORE

Posted by Sarah Turner on 2nd Nov 2018 in Blog

This November, Etsy is unveiling a curated collection of products that put the good into consumer goods and I am very proud to be part of it!

The collection is being unveiled at The Etsy Good Store (2-4 November) in the heart of London. The concept store will encourage mindful shopping as we head into the festive season, showcasing the independent makers at the heart of Etsy, the unique products that they sell, and the impact of their design and production ethos.

9-11 Shorts Gardens, Seven Dials, Covent Garden, WC2H 9AT

The collection will also be available to buy on Etsy at www.etsy.com/uk/featured/goodstore throughout November and December.

Many of the sellers in the collection have inspiring stories, such as:

  • Lucie Ellen, who started her jewellery business as a way to make a living while caring for her mother, and has now been able to build her brand full time from her East London garden studio.
  • Little Beau Sheep, who created her woollen laundry balls as a young mum who was struggling to get her daughters’ clothes dry in an environmentally friendly way.
  • Called Out Living, who became interested in self-development while recovering from post-natal depression, putting together her design skills with her personal experiences to create her fashionable self-care stationery.

At The Etsy Good Store, alongside the curated collection of products that do ‘good’, consumers will be able to learn about the craftsmanship and inspiring stories behind Etsy’s unique products. Visitors will be invited to take part on panel talks, Q&As and workshops with industry experts discussing this year’s biggest trends and topics, from shopping with a conscience through to improving wellbeing through craft.
