No need for a middle man or extra commissions. Etsy helps creators to keep their prices low by allowing them to step out of the traditional retail shopfront environment and move online for a fraction of the cost of building their own website. This leads to lower overheads and better prices! Win/Win!
The Etsy pop-up market will run from 6pm - 10pm, Friday 28 November. Perfect for the hipster of the family or a parent who prefers unique pieces, rather than brand names.
