Brooklyn's Trashion Trunk Show



Thank you to everyone on the EtsyTrashion Team, the Trunk Show was a huge success and a ton of fun!



Thank you Catherine of SweetyPrize for organizing, being so patient and helpful as everyone got themselves together, and for being a really fun and fantastic lady to have my table next to.



I specifically heard someone exclaim "this is just gorgeous" in response to Catherine's adorable Sunshiney Flower Crochet Clutch Purse.




It was so inspiring and interesting to see the materials and objects the other EtsyTrashion designers use in their designs, and I was continuously impressed by the Etsy members innovative uses for things like MetroCards, old vinyl records, even just scraps of paper and fabric were woven into new and interesting, upcycled art. What a fantastic green group.



A big thank you to everyone for being so team-oriented, helpful, creative and generous. I, for one, had a successful trade, a few sales to other designers, and the cherry on top were the super-sweet free gifts from a few of you fabulous EtsyTrashion Team members.



Thank you to everyone who came out for it, and especially to those fantastic EtsyTrashion team members who made the trip. Brooklyn welcomed you with open arms and loved having you here.



You think you'll find a better team to join on Etsy.....fuhgetaboutit.
