Sydney D.U.S.T. Meeting
The 2nd official Sydney D.U.S.T. meeting was on today at 3pm in Glebe, a suburb of Sydney near the University of Sydney, Chinatown & the CBD (for those of you who who aren't in Sydney). we met at Badde Manors, a funky little coffee shop on Glebe Point Rd.
Those who attended were:
Ceeb (me)- howlindoggie
We all brought samples of our work, and WOW we really are a bunch of talented vegimites (an australian delicacy....hee hee)..
Turns were had by all in explaining how & why we managed to FIND etsy and have a shop on there and then we turned to a more organized part of the meeting, discussing what we actually want to do to promote etsy (and the handmade) in Sydney, as the general concensus was that etsy is more american than global.
Australians are still really quite unaware of etsy.
We threw around ideas and came to a plan, which will be discussed at the next meet, which will be on the 2nd of September 2007 at my workshop/studio.
It was very exiting to have so many people in one group who are so talented and have similar gameplans. We have etsy to thank for throwing us all together!
