BTNETSY TALKS. Etsy Shop Success with Zoe Bateman from Ladybird Likes
Last night I attended this inspirational talk, which was put on free by the fabulous Brighton Etsy Team. It was held at The Old Market in Hove. The venue was cosy and comfortable, and it was good to put faces to the names I know from twitter and Etsy.
