Best of British: #uketsyhour

Last Tuesday the brand new Etsy UK and Ireland Promo Team started what will be a regular event on Twitter: #uketsyhour. It takes place every Tuesday and Thursday night from 8-9 PM so if you want to discover a whole host of British and Irish talent, please have a look at Twitter and search for our hashtag.

This promotion came about to make Etsy better known in the UK. Since it is an American site, it is particularly popular there, but there is also a large portion of international sellers. We want to encourage British buyers to find local handmade products on this platform that seems to be little known, unfortunately.

So every Tuesday and Thursday, a number of Etsy sellers from all over the country gather on Twitter to promote our favourite products, sellers and our favourite purchases using #uketsyhour. It’s a lot of fun chatting to others, very interesting to discover beautiful items, and fantastic to see support from so many people.

If you have a few minutes to spare, we’d love to see you at our next UK Etsy Hour.

  3. Hi Laura! Thanks for commenting.

    Maybe I'll see you at #uketsyhour next time. :) It has changed since I wrote this post and we no longer promote our products there. Instead, it is an hour of chat and advice. It can be a bit quiet because of the change, but if you need any help, we'll be there.
