On Etsy, artists & creatives sell their handmade products online worldwide – and for a limited time you can experience the “Etsy Made in Deutschland” Pop-Up market in Düsseldorf!
Düsseldorf is a well known destination for art & design. With its many galleries, art museums and special events there’s always something new and inspiring to discover.
That’s especially true this month, as Düsseldorf’s Etsy Team opens its “Etsy Made in Deutschland” Pop-Up market at Kunstmüllerei – the charming atelier, exhibition space, and sculpture garden of popular Düsseldorf based artist Sonja Zeltner-Müller.
Creative Pop Up Market
The market is a great way to support local creative entrepreneurship and sustainable consumption.
That’s what makes “Etsy Made in Deutschland” so special – not only is everything handmade – but the artists & designers are all based in Germany as well.
In fact, most of the participants of the Düsseldorf market are local to the region, including Sonja Zeltner-Müller, the event organizer, and Tess Peartree, an artist and musician from Neuss.
We interviewed both artists prior the event’s opening. Their passion for art, and the opportunity that the market represents for them and the other artists was clear from the start.
Sonja spoke enthusiastically about how fun the preparations have been, and how committed each of the participating artists are. She’s happy to welcome visitors to discover the beautiful hidden corners of Kunstmüllerei.
Like Sonja, Tess loves to create. She specializes in small acrylic paintings with fine paintbrushes and hand pressed linoleum prints. Regarding Etsy, she says, “It’s really all about the creatives and artists on this platform, and you can find one of a kind items.”
And this applies to the pop-up market as well, which features 17 artists in an extraordinary location offering everything from from small postcards and notebooks to huge pictures.
