On November 25, 2017 shop local artisans and find something to love at a market near you.
What is Etsy Made Local?
Good question! Etsy Made Local is a national, community-led initiative celebrating the crafters, collectors and artisans in local communities across the country. From coast to coast, Australian cities and towns will be participating in this one-day event powered by Etsy Teams on November 25, marking the event’s third year. Popping up in 10 locations, Etsy artisans will sell their handmade wares, vintage goods and supplies to local buyers at these marketplaces, each representing the spirit of the local community.
What is Etsy?
With over 1 million active shops and 60 million unique visitors per month, Etsy is the online market for handmade and vintage goods. Our mission is to re-imagine commerce in ways that build a more fulfilling and lasting world. Etsy is proud to be a certified B Corporation—a new kind of company that uses the power of business to solve social and environmental problems.
How can I share event photos and updates on social media?
You can share the event on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram with #EtsyMadeLocal and @etsy. Just try not to make your friends too jealous.
I can't attend a market. How can I shop from the local sellers?
You can shop from sellers in your neighbourhood (and from around the globe!) all year round on Etsy.com.
Is there an Etsy: Made Local market in my city?
We hope so! Check the list of participating cities to see if a market is popping up near you.
How can I become a vendor at a marketplace near me?
Each market location manages their own vendor application process, which is led by the organising Etsy Team in charge of that city’s market. You can learn more about the organising Team nearest you and reach out directly about next year!
What is an Etsy Team?
Etsy Teams is a feature on Etsy that allows you to connect with other members of your community. You can use Team Forums to share information about running a business in your area, get advice from experienced members, or gather with peers to socialise and plan events.
