At last year’s Etsy Made Local,  12 inspiring and pioneering Etsy Teams (Nottingham Etsy Team, The Portsmouth & Southsea ConsortiumGlasgow Etsy TeamDorset Etsy TeamCardiff and Valleys MembersEtsy CambridgeBrighton Sellers’ TeamTeam LeedsEtsy Sellers in BristolSheffield Sellers on EtsyIDEAS BirminghamLondon Local Team) organised a beautiful Christmas market in their local community.

Etsy artisans sold their handmade wares and vintage goods to thousands of local Christmas shoppers at markets and pop-up shops around the UK, with hosts helping to showcase the talent of local designer makers and the spirit of their communities.
