This is Exeter's first ever Etsy Made Local market. Taking place at Exeter Phoenix on Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd December, it is part of a national event that will see the biggest regional spread of markets across the UK take part. In total 54 cities across the UK will celebrate the makers, designers and collectors that sell on Etsy.com, the online marketplace for handmade and vintage goods. It’s about encouraging people to look locally for this year’s Christmas gifting and connecting them to more than 40 South West Devon based makers and designers.
The annual Russian Christmas Fayre organised by the Exeter Yaroslavl Twinning Association (EYTA) will take place in the Guildhall, High Street, Exeter on the morning of Saturday, 9th December from 10am to 1pm. Each year a two-way exchange visit takes place between the two cities.
It will be a wonderful opportunity to purchase some interesting Christmas gifts, to relax in the café and, if you wish, to find out more about Exeter's links with its twin Russian city of Yaroslavl, situated to the north of Moscow.

Although the men are choosing the ring as a promise of commitment to their partners, it is the women that have to have to wear that ring for the rest of their lives.
