Etsy Admins Matt & Benedikta arranged a meet-up in Helsinki on Thursday!
They have recently opened an Etsy office in Berlin. About 40 Finnish Etsy enthusiastics got together for Euro news and networking at Cafe Fanny. Can you believe there are nearly 500 Etsy sellers in Finland alone? I'm happy Etsy is making improvments on its geo-locator feature, this will help us to find each more efficiently. All in all it sounded nice that Etsy is now truly growing international. To serve its international buyers and sellers better Etsy will be introducing French and German language versions, multi language call center and a currency converter. These will come in action little by little.
Here are a few photos I snapped at the gathering. I apologize the blurriness on them, the light was pretty dim but everyone loved the warm atmosphere, no doubt!

Thanks again for a wonderful evening Matt & Benedikta and everyone who was there. For sure we will be keeping in touch and arrange more Etsy events locally in a near future!
