Nov 11, 2015

by Sarah Hewett handmade and vintage goods

Join us for a spot of festive cheer at Etsy Made Local… Our UK wide Christmas market event will pop up in a town near you on 5th and 6th December!

This December, 11 neighbourhood groups of designer-makers will host markets on the same weekend for your Christmas shopping pleasure! It’s the perfect opportunity to meet local makers in your area and find handmade, unique gifts for everyone on your Christmas list (plus a few treats for yourself!).

Here at Etsy, our vibrant and ever-growing community of talented designer-makers spans the whole of the United Kingdom – from Brighton and Dorset in the south to Leeds and Glasgow in the north and many places in between. We can’t wait for you to meet them! Find your local market and plan your visit here.

    Cardiff is going to be amazing! We got a little carried away and will be open for an entire month, from 24th November right up to and including Christmas Eve! Open 7 days a week in Capitol shopping centre. Come say hi!

    Er, Sheffield too??? It's on the map, we have an event but you didn't mention us on the marktet page either. Very disappointed with the support and info from Etsy on this.

      Hi Rob, at the time of publishing this post, we hadn't been notified with the relevant details around the Sheffield event. However, we remain supportive of the Sheffield event and we would suggest team members to convene and submit this info as soon as possible. Once we receive the info, we'd be happy to update this post and the micro-site!
