Etsy Israel Team pre Passover sale (and Orit)

I am just back from our first handmade gifts fair. It was a blast!

First of all, finally some members of the Etsy Israel Team got to get together and meet in real life (where there's no keyboard).

Studio 42
The place itself was wonderful. A very industrial little space in Florentine in south Tel Aviv, with naked walls and flooring, and a little yard as well. We each setup our stands at different corners of the space.

Odelia, whose boyfriend rents the place as a studio, had a very fitting setup on hanging shelves beneath the stairs to the gallery floor.

Man, those recycled plush dolls are so good looking.

Veek brought her wonderful knitted jewelry. I traded with her for a wonderful knitted and beaded necklace.

I also traded with Irina (moohahaha) whose jewelry is very elegant and lovely.

Orit created a lovely presentation, even though she is not on Etsy (yet) . It looked so good on the bare concrete wall.

We had lovely visitors, some nice sales, great trades, lots of cookies and crisps, a great sunny weather, and saw a lot of dogs. The bottom line is - the next sale will be held soon. So start saving up for some wonderful handmade gifts!
