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.
As well as providing the chance to find unique, affordable and meaningful gifts in the lead up to Christmas, the event will also include live music, and a gift wrapping service with donations to Exeter Foodbank and the Red Box Project. There will also be wreath making and mixed media memento notebook workshops happening at the venue on the Saturday.
