Let's Go To Spain! Getting to Know You #24

Hi! Anne-Marie of Handmade by Amo'r here with this month's Getting To Know You post. 

The idea is to introduce the Etsy Ireland Team to another Etsy team via a 50-50, cross-team treasury.

I'm just back from a summer holiday to Spain, a country close to my heart as I spent most of my twenties living there. So with the the sound of the sea echoing in my ears, I was naturally drawn to the Etsy Made in Spain team this month.

They are a well-established team of over 600 members, dedicated to promoting Spanish shops on Etsy. Their mission is to create a place where Spanish artists can promote their work. Handmade crafts are enjoying a recent upsurge in popularity in Spain and the Etsy Made in Spain team wishes to showcase it to the world. They share more than a language, but also a way of living. Spain is a European country where the abundant sunlight generates wonderful creativity. Find our Spanish friends on Facebook here.
