Etsy Made Local, St Ives Fri 2 – Sun 4 Dec
This is no ordinary makers fair. Etsy Made Local is a modern, cool and kitsch market in the heart of St Ives – part of the national Etsy Made Local initiative celebrating the crafters, collectors and artisans in local communities – and we have more than our fair share of talent here in Cornwall. This is a curated fair, they’ve whittled it down from 120 applicants to just 35. Everything a makers fair needs – music, food, and of course a cocktail bar!
If you can’t make it, check out St Ives Etsy page for chrimbo gifts and stocking fillers.
Entry is free, late night shopping on friday.
