What is Etsy Made Local?
Etsy Made Local is a national, community-led initiative celebrating the makers, collectors and artisans in local communities across the UK. From St Ives to Aberdeen, cities and towns will be participating in this weekend event connecting Christmas shoppers with local Etsy communities.
Powered by our community leaders (Etsy Teams), Etsy Made Local marketplaces will pop-up across the country on 1–3 December 2017. Etsy artisans can sell their handmade wares and vintage goods to local buyers at the markets, each of which will represent the spirit of the local community. The markets will also give neighbours the opportunity to discover the wealth of creativity and craftsmanship in their own backyards.
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.
When is Etsy Made Local UK?
Etsy Made Local UK will take place across 1-3 December 2017, but be sure to check the details of the market you’re attending as some events may only take place on one of these days, and you don’t want to miss out!

There isn’t a market near me. Why?
Etsy Made Local is a community-led initiative run by Etsy sellers and supported by Etsy. Each participating event is run by a group of dedicated Etsy Team members who volunteered to host a market in their area. If there isn’t a market in your area, consider starting or joining a Team in your area and organising one next year.
Do I need to be a seller to start/join an Etsy Team?
Absolutely not! Etsy Teams is a great way for all members of the Etsy universe to connect and collaborate; this includes our beloved buyers as well. Whilst a majority of Teams are seller based, if you’re interested to connect more with local artisans to run activities and events in your area then you can start or join a Team today!
Do I have to be an Etsy member to shop at a market?
No, anyone is welcome to stop by a market. But you should think about joining the Etsy community. It’s an easy (and free) way to keep finding incredible items from local sellers and sellers around the world.
How can I share event photos and updates on social media?
You can share the event on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat with #EtsyMadeLocalUK and @EtsyUK.
I can't attend a market. How can I shop from the local sellers?
You can shop from sellers in your local area (and from around the globe!) all year round on Etsy.com.
