After long preparations, the Etsy Ireland Craft Fair took place on Sunday 15 March 2015 at The Green Door Market in Dublin 8.
The market opened at 10am for set up, and trading took place from 11am-5pm. It was a very successful event, which offered plenty of opportunities of networking and showcasing products.
Here are a few comments by visitors and sellers:
"Although a bit cold, everyone was in good spirits!" (CartaBan)
"Great event, I had such a great time meeting Etsy colleagues and new customers, the crafts were amazing and I found it very hard to stay behind my stall instead of admiring everybody's work!
Maria did a very good job organizing the event, so big thanks to her!" (Quilterbell)
"It was a great day at the market yesterday. So many lovely fellow crafters to meet. Well organised. Thank you Maria!" (TimKatSoo)

It's great to see such co-operation and working as a team. That's what Etsy Ireland is all about!
Maria and Sue have been discussing having another market on 7 June 2015, which is the same weekend of the planned Etsy Party. Let us know in the comments section if you are interested in participating.
