Last year, Etsy sellers in the capital cities all around Australia hosted beautiful markets for Christmas. Their gorgeous work supported by the Etsy admin team made a big splash. The markets welcomed over 67,000 attendees across the six weekend events with many sellers reported selling out of stock!

“Feedback was overwhelmingly positive last year. The look and vibe of the event was fabulous, and both sellers and attendees had a ball,” reported the WA Team who held an event in Perth.

With stalls selling out of stock and shoppers asking for more, we’ve decided to make this year’s events even bigger and better than last years to make for a big start to the silly season! Our hosts are getting excited:

“This year, we hope to encourage more sellers to take part and especially those who have never tried their wares at a market before.  We have listened to the feedback from customers and will try and accommodate the amount of local folk who are just as excited about handmade and design on a local level as we are!” – The Makers and Designers team, Brisbane.

    Hello, I would love an ETSY marketplace near Charlotte, NC...USA. I love ETSY, but find it difficult to understand their directions regarding running my shop. IS there a live phone line to comunicate with ETSY? Also, how can I get my very rare products to be featured or get more exposure. Thanks for any assistance. Marge

    Hi Marge, You can get in touch with the US team via their blog: https://blog.etsy.com or on twitter or facebook: www.twitter.com/etsy and www.facebook.com/etsy and they will be able to help you out! You're on the Australian blog here so we won't be able to help out from so far away :) Laura

    I don't see Canberra on the list :( I know there was a market in 2015 - is it likely you will have one in 2016 or do Canberra based Etsians need to apply to Sydney? Thanks :)
