What is Etsy Made Local?
Etsy Made Local is a national, seller-led initiative celebrating the makers, collectors and artisans in local communities across the UK. From St Ives to Aberdeen, towns and cities will be participating in this weekend event connecting Christmas shoppers with local Etsy sellers.
Etsy Made Local markets hosted by teams of Etsy sellers will pop up across the country on 30 November - 2 December 2018. Artisans selling on Etsy can sell their handmade wares and vintage goods to local customers; 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 an Etsy Team?
Etsy Teams is a feature on Etsy that allows you to connect with other members of the 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.
To find an Etsy Team based in your location, craft or interest, click here. All Etsy Made Local events are hosted by Etsy Teams. Only Etsy sellers are able to sell at these marketplace events.
