The SF Etsy team is thrilled to announce that we will be partnering once more with All Good Pizza to bring you the 2016 Spring Emporium!
Since this has always been a successful location for the team, we have secured a street permit to expand the show on the side street. We can now allow for more vendors, more food and make it a more comfortable shopping experience. The show date is Sunday, May 22 and will run from 11am-5pm.
As with our previous events, we will be selecting vendors for this event based on a jury selection process. Submit your application early to be reviewed by our panel of sewists, jewelry designers and artists!
Submissions are due via this application process by NOON (12:00pm) April 6, 2016 with notifications of acceptance to be sent via email by April 13, 2016.
There is a $10 non-refundable application fee to apply for this show. THIS IS AN APPLICATION FEE AND DOES NOT GET CREDITED TO YOUR BOOTH PAYMENT FOR THE EVENT. This application fee helps us pay the street closure permit to expand the size, order the tables, create marketing materials for the show, and cover some of the up front costs of producing an event like the SF Etsy Indie Spring Emporium Popup Market.
Please note, due to limitations of the space, all vendors will need to fit their set up into a 6 foot table space.
SF Etsy will be supplying tables, so you won't need to bring one with you!
If you applied last year, your account information was not saved in Eventerrific, you will need to create a new account to apply this year.
APPLICATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED.
Rebecca here to recap our first team "friday field trip" of 2016.
Daisy and Christian from GatherSF generously hosted us at their adorable shop in Hayes Valley.
Since opening their shop nearly two years ago, Daisy and Christian have sold the work of many local artisans, including many SF Etsy team members!
Prior to opening their shop, Daisy ran a successful Etsy shop, Lanyapi where she has nearly 3,000 sales of her vintage style handmade jewelry pieces. Daisy also shared with us the meaning behind her Etsy shop name "Lanyapi." Her parents are both from New Orleans where is it is common for shop keepers to throw in a little "lagniappe".
A lagniappe (/ˈlænjæp/ lan-yap) is a small gift given to a customer by a merchant at the time of a purchase (such as a 13th doughnut when buying a dozen), or more broadly, "something given or obtained gratuitously or by way of good measure."
I love that Daisy decided to take something so personal from her past and make it come alive in her Etsy shop! Christian and Daisy both spent many weekends at craft events all over the Bay Area and were so excited to finally find a permanent home.
Thanks to everyone who came out and mingled, shopped, crafted (Daisy and Christian had a bath salts mini-workshop) and popped out of your studios for the afternoon!
I hope to see you all at the next Friday Field Trip on Friday, March 25, 2016 at Marion & Rose - get your ticket here.
