After months of hard work, our first Etsy Made Local Dundee took place on Saturday. What a day!! It was amazing from start to finish, the team really came together on the Friday to transform the venue with all of our handmade decorations. Then all we could do was wait and hope that all of the hours we put in to promote and organise would pay off.
On the morning of the market we found there were people queueing to come in at opening time and we ended up with almost 1000 visitors throughout the day! This was a fantastic number for our first market, especially for the size and location of our venue - we wouldn't have had room for many more. It was so lovely to see our photobooth being used, and the Christmas jumper decoration workshop was busy from start to finish. There was a wonderful festive atmosphere, it felt so friendly and welcoming and we had such fab feedback from stallholders and customers alike.
Thanks so much to everyone who made this market happen, especially Jen (SPILTHdesign), James (Penguiniverse) and Leighan (Daftpup), and to everyone who came along. We're all going into Etsy team hibernation for now but look out for future plans come January.
