Although I will be leaving my beloved Rochester NY Etsy street team in early 2012, at least my time will end with a bang! This summer our team won an Etsy Grant to rent a space in the city to host a variety of creative, community activities. All through December members of our team will be hosting a variety of events. Please join us!
