West Elm is taking 12 local Etsy designers out of your computer screen and into their Dumbo stores for a one-day pop up. Tina Roth Eisenberg, who runs the design blog Swissmiss, curated the event, which runs from 1pm to 7pm tomorrow. Snacks, a DJ, and a Smilebooth will all be on hand as you shop the NYC-based Etsy-ers at both West Elm Dumbo, on Front Street, and West Elm Market, around the corner on Washington Street.
Featured sellers include Jessica Marquez of Miniature Rhino—who has horoscope embroidery samplers and message-in-a-bottle kits on her page—and GranolaLab, where Alex Croiser sells some very experimental granola mixes. There's also gorgeous greeting cards from 55 Hi's, designed by Ross Moody. You can check out the full list of sellers at West Elm's blog, and you can RSVP via Facebook.—Laura Gurfein
