Find unique treasures and gifts at Etsy Made Local Perth
Have you started thinking about – dare I say it – Christmas? No? Me neither. But, by mid-November you may have, and if you're a big fan of Etsy, the global online marketplace for unique goods and services, then look no further for gift ideas than the Etsy Made Local Perth 2016 Christmas market.
Etsy is headed to Perth. (Pic: WA Street Team on Easy Facebook.)
This unique marketplace and festival is your chance to connect with Etsy buyers and sellers and view a huge range of stunning, handmade goods. The market will take place from 10am to 4pm on Saturday, 19th November in the Courtyard at the State Theatre Centre of WA.
Hosted by Etsy's Western Australia Street Team, Etsy Made Local is a celebration of arts, crafts and goods from talented locals who will be showcasing their exquisite products in more than 60 market stalls. The Perth event will run as part of concurrent events happening in other capital cities on the day.
Etsy is well and truly a place to find just about anything. I needed a specific 'Mod Monkey' themed dress for my daughter's first birthday party. No problem – found it on Etsy. It's the place to go for wedding jewellery and accessories, gifts, clothing, event invites and so much more.
On top of bedazzling locally made goods, there will be live music, a pop-up bar, gelato and a chill-out area for shoppers to enjoy. A charity raffle to raise funds for Plan International's and ETSY Australia's 'Because I Am A Girl' campaign will also take place on the day.
If you love all things Etsy, then this marketplace is definitely the place to be – right in time for Christmas.
