Etsy Craft Party Amsterdam

June 20th 2013.
Worldwide there were Etsy Craft Parties happening that day. I attended the one in Amsterdam.

It was an excellent festive event and networking opportunity, organized by Ka-Ching Collectief, a collective of 5 Etsy sellers at Storm Gallery in Amsterdam. We crocheted, made booklets or cards, but most of all had a lot of fun.
The Ka-Ching Collectief also have a cool pop-up store there, with handmade and vintage items, worth checking out.


Thank you, Ka-Ching girls:

While waiting for our timeslot we walked to the top floors to see the variety/entertainment/theatre costumes. Among other I saw Adam Ant's Prince Charming, but also well known costumes from cabaret and musicals.

For Tuesday evening we had tickets t…
