Getting to Know You #27 Let's Visit Finland!

Getting to Know You is a monthly slot where the Etsy Ireland team greets another team with a 50-50 cross team treasury and gives them a little exposure on our team blog. The idea is to mutually promote (and admire) shops from both teams.

As this is the last Getting to Know You of  2013, and we have all been busily working away like Santa's Elves, I thought we should visit Lapland...or at least, Finland. Who knows, we might spot a glimpse of Santa...and ask him for a job on his team of merry workers....

The Finland Handcrafters Team boasts 135 members, all of them living in Finland at least 6 months of the year.  They use English for their team business as it is a neutral language common to their members. 
Search for their fabulous items with the tag Finland Handcrafters Team. You can find them on Facebook  or pop over to their team blog. But don't forget to come back to us here in Ireland if you do ;-)
