Applications are now open for December 1st and 2nd!
Following the success of Etsy Made Local Tottenham 2017, we are glad to announce that the Crafty North Londoner Etsy Team have been confirmed as a host for 2018.
We will once again open our doors and bring the sellers of Etsy.com offline and to a venue near you!
About Etsy Made Local
Etsy Made Local is an annual seller-led, Etsy initiative celebrating crafters, collectors and artisans from across the UK. Between 30 November – 2 December, towns and cities will play host to a pop-up market featuring some of the best handmade gifts, vintage goods and craft supplies available on Etsy.com, to local customers.
The Crafty North Londoner Etsy Team is organised on a voluntarily basis. The sole purpose is to provide a platform for sellers who wish to reconnect with their customers in a face-to-face setting.
The Application Process
Applications are currently being accepted as of now, and will close at 23:59 on 1st August.
We do expect a high volume of applications and sadly will not be able to accept all applicants, but fortunately the market will be held over two days so your chances to trade have increased – hoorah!
The form is pretty comprehensive and includes a considerable amount of information so please do take the time to ensure the form is read in its entirety and understood.
We all deserve a holiday and that includes your shop! Please ensure your Etsy shop is ‘open’ between 2nd – 4th August as this is when all applications will be reviewed. Each application form received will be reviewed and we want to see your lovely items. If you must keep your Etsy shop in holiday mode, no problem. Please let us know and send images labelled with your business name so we can still review your application.
At each market, customers have commented on the high quality items produced. Simply put, we are all amazing designer-maker crafters in our fields! For that reason, if you are not selected to trade, please do not be disheartened. Most importantly, it will not be because your products are not up to scratch, but instead, you might have applied at the cut off point for your category, or because through experience, we have learnt what does/does not trade very well on market day. We do not want to accept your application fee for the sake of it.
Once again, the Crafty North Londoner Etsy Team is operated on a voluntary basis. As this is a community event, all successful applicants will be expected to participate in the promotion of the market, may it be online or offline and assist with the setup or breakdown of the market. As the saying goes, two heads are better than one!
