Yesterday I had such a wonderful time visiting Andrea Cook at her studio in the beautiful old town of Tholen with fellow Etsians and ‘partners in crime’ ;) Annemiek and Hanna.

Andrea shares the shop and seperate art studio with her partner Francesco Antonietti. They paint, make etchings, teach and so much more. Find out more: here (Etsy) and here (website). What an inspiring place! See for yourself:

Thanks again for your hospitality, Andrea!

We are all part of the local Etsy team Zeeuwse Etsy community (we live in the province of Zeeland). Come and join the team if you’re an Etsy seller from Zeeland!

On another note: I have been keeping something very exciting from you!
Yesterday Annemiek, Hanna and I also had another meeting for a local project we’re working on, called Zeeuwse Branding. It’s a platform for local creative small businesses and we have big plans! The website/blog will be up soon(ish), a short interview with Andrea will be on there as well. I’ll keep you posted.

In the meantime you can follow Zeeuwse Branding on Twitter (Hanna tweeting), Facebook (Annemiek, Andrea and me posting) and Instagram (I’m posting). I’ll tell you more about it soooon. Oh and it’s all in Dutch because, well, we live in the Netherlands and it’s a local initiative.
