Re: Any Etsy Sellers in the Zurich area?

Hi this is almost a year after the thread. Did you all get together? I'm in the US right now but looks like we'll probably move back to CH by September 2010.

For those who sell on etsy, is the shipping prohibitively expensive for the buyers?

My niche is a little different. I sell incense, lotion, soaps and soon herbal teas that I buy from cooperatives in developing countries. I'd like an etsy presence, but will only put up the items that I prepare myself of course.

At any rate, I'd love to get together with y'all when I'm settled in. I'll be in the Zurich area.

Is anyone getting ready for Christmas markets by the way? What ones are you working?

Tami

Re: Any Etsy Sellers in the Zurich area?

Hi there! I have updated my Etsy shop! I created one a while ago but then never really got around to put much on it - as I have my own website. Now I have just decided to update it again so here it is, I hope to add more stuff soon!

Re: Any Etsy Sellers in the Zurich area?

Hi there again! I thought that as we all seem to be a group of quite creative people we could share also each other blogs and network in that way...anybody up for it?

So, If you have a blog, share it here! This is the link to mine:

http://wwwjartstudiogallery.blogspot.com

Looking forward to yours!!

PS. It does not have to be restricted just to the arts, also people writing about Switzerland or Zurich should post! Should be interesting!

Re: Any Etsy Sellers in the Zurich area?

Hi Everyone,
Do you sell at Christmas Markets in Switzerland? I am looking for alternative, smaller markets than the typical Swiss markets like the big one at Zurich Hb.

I think I mentioned earlier that I sell beauty products made by cooperatives in developing countries (and I whip up shea butter myself and package it), so the message is an important one to transmit. I don't see myself being able to communicate that in a large setting.

Anyway, I'd appreciate any tips. I was thinking about getting a table at the Nachtmarkt in Zurich too. Christmas is the big season for me as I'm sure it is for many of you.

Thanks,
Tami

Re: Any Etsy Sellers in the Zurich area?

I've been thinking of setting up a shop on Etsy, I just need to get around to making some stuff that I'm happy enough with to sell! I love the UK site Folksy but unfortunately its UK only. There's a German site as well called DeWanda - has anyone used it?

I've checked out all the Etsy shops mentioned above some amazing stuff! I see a few possible Christmas Presents too!!!

Re: Any Etsy Sellers in the Zurich area?

i just started working on my second Etsy shop
http://www.melissasuefineart.etsy.com

I try to get my "etsy-work" in during the week, but I've just been painting so much more than sewing. So, solution, open painting store. Hah.

(regular etsy: www.melissasue.etsy.com)

I was wondering if anyone's gonna start an Etsy Team Switzerland? The "europe team" just seems so big and perhaps pointless?

Re: Any Etsy Sellers in the Zurich area?

Hi I have posted a note under the business section "Call for creative people" and have tagged it under art but somehow it is not filtering into this section. The post is about getting creative people together and organise an event to display their work at my studio-gallery. So if you are a creative person, and this could be somethng that interests you, please take a look at the post or message me if you would like mote info!

Re: Any Etsy Sellers in the Zurich area?

Hi everyone!

I live in Geneva and I just joined etsy and opened a store. I crochet occasionally, but my store is focusing on my passion for another esoteric technology: typewriters! I am listing beautiful vintage machines that I have refurbished... I have a personal collection of over 40 typewriters, so if there is interest I will sell a few from time to time.

Here is the link: http://www.etsy.com/shop/genevatypewriters

It's great looking at all your stores! We definitely should start a Switzerland group.

Re: Any Etsy Sellers in the Zurich area?

Thanks, miniMia! I think the museum you linked is a virtual one :-)

However, I have been to the typewriter museum in Lausanne (http://www.perrier-sa.ch/musee.html).

Mr. Perrier has a fantastic collection and I highly recommend it!

Re: Any Etsy Sellers in the Zurich area?

Hi Tami!

I would love to try your shea butter products! I'm so fed up of the fragrances in commercial lotions/body butters, all which I've chucked in a corner of my cupboard as they make my nose run.

As for small markets, there is the Rosenhof Markt in the Niederdorf which runs from March till December. http://www.rosenhof.ch/index.php
I helped with a stall around May (freeeeezing), and we're going to be there again on 27th November selling waffles, chai and possibly jewellery to raise money for a charity in India. The market has a christmas-y feel once the xmas lights start going up (around now!!). I think it costs approximately 50chf a day, but it depends how large a space you need!

Good luck for the xmas season!!!

How bizarre that I posted that link... I found it while looking up the one in Lausanne and was surfing around it. But that was not the one I meant to post. Of course, I meant the Perrier museum in Lausanne.
Note to self: Proof read before posting!

Anyway, I'm not surprised you already visited! LOL.
