Who are the Bristol Etsy Team?

The Bristol Pop-Up Shop is a collective brought to you by the Bristol Etsy Team.

The Bristol Etsy Team is a community for all makers, artists and sellers in Bristol who sell on Etsy.com. Our mission is to connect and support those businesses and help them to connect, grow and feel part of a creative community.

What is The Winter Pop-Up Shop?

Launched in 2018, we've hosted our Winter Pop-Up Shop in The Galleries Shopping Centre in Bristol, located near Waterstones and the food court. Our Shop brings a beautiful array of high quality, locally designed and made products from over 80 Bristol businesses.

All the team working shifts in the Winter Pop-Up Shop are the makers, designers and artists who have their products stocked in there. This means shoppers can meet the makers and speak with the experts themselves! As a team, we are passionate about supporting our creative community and making a difference to small businesses. 

We're delighted to be able to bring the Winter Pop-Up Shop to the Galleries, Bristol once again in 2020. Lockdown restrictions permitting, doors will open on Wednesday 2nd December raring to go for our Christmas shopping until Wednesday 23rd December 2020. Opening hours are Monday-Saturday 10:00-18:00 and Sunday 11:00-17:00; it'll be great to see you there!

What is the Online Bristol Pop-Up Shop?

Our online Bristol Pop-Up Shop is our new project for 2020. With the uncertainty of in-person shopping this Christmas, we wanted to bring our favourite Bristol makers and creatives online, so customers have the ease of shopping from the comfort of home.  

Thursday 12th November 2020 will see the launch of the Online Shop with over 100 southwest based creative businesses selling their incredible products. Some of these artists will also be stocked in the Winter Pop-Up Shop, and some are exclusively available online. (You can check their seller profile for more information).

If you're looking for an easy way to shop online this Christmas and want to find handmade gifts for difficult to buy friends and relatives, perfect stocking fillers and unique one-of-a-kind makes, then you're in the right place!

I am Emma Bassey and I run Stitching Me Softly, a crochet and craft kit business, from my studio in Bristol.

I have always been creative and taught myself to crochet 8 years ago whilst pregnant with my second daughter.

I then spent some time developing my skills before launching Stitching Me Softly in 2017, just after the birth of my third daughter.

I really enjoy designing new products which inspire the creativity in other people. This has led to designing a range of craft kits and running workshops around the UK.

Moloneymakes is a vegan knitwear brand which provides a range of easy knitting kits, super chunky yarn and bamboo knitting needles alongside select made to order cosy knitted accessories. 

Sophie runs the business from her studio (aka yarn palace) based in Bristol, UK. Moloneymakes was founded when Sophie discovered knitting during her recovery process from a battle with mental illness. Knitting proved to be the outlet she needed; each stitch provided respite from a busy brain and the mindful repetition of each row helped to alleviate high levels of anxiety and depression.

Now, Moloneymakes mission is to help others cultivate a sense of mindfulness in their lives too. It provides people with a way of utilising the therapeutic benefits of knitting for themselves and encourages you to enjoy a moment of calm and feel your mind quieten with the rhythmic movement of the needles.

Contemporary Cross Stitch for Modern Makers

If you’re a cross stitch lover or looking for a new hobby then you are in the right place. I specialise in cross stitch kits for the radical crafter, all designed in house by myself with a good sprinkling of pastels, bold typography and sometimes (but usually) an alternative twist. Cos everyone knows metal + cross stitching = awesome.

Or if you are just eyeing up something ready made with a contemporary twist to adorn your home then I have also got you covered.

My cross stitch kits are designed and made up by hand in Bristol. 90% of the contents of my kits are either sourced from manufacturers here in the UK, reputable sources from the EU or post consumer waste from the US. The plan is to make this 100% by the end of 2019 so customers can shop knowing they are buying from an ethically (and environmentally) conscious business. They are packaged in a kraft box with a printed paper sleeve, both of which are recyclable.

Warmlii is reviving the Swiss tradition of using cherry stones for therapeutic purposes by making eco-friendly thermal pillows that can be used hot or cold to alleviate aches and pains.

Warmlii pillows are 100% natural, made with organic cotton fabric and filled with cherry stones, they adapt to the shape of the body and smell delicious when heated. Properly cared for these sustainably made thermal pillows can last for years.

Bee started Warmlii in 2016 after realising that very few people in England knew about the incredible benefits of cherry stones. Having grown up in Germany, where cherry stone pillows are a common thing, she decided it's time they find their way into more homes over here and replace those smelly old wheat bags!

All pillows are handmade in her cosy little home studio with the hope to share the warmth one pillow at a time and to provide comfort and healing.
