Etsy creatives are encouraging Brisbane residents to look locally for Christmas gifts this year, as they hold their Etsy Made Local Market in Brisbane this month.

The market is part of a national one-day event that will see Australian cities from coast to coast celebrating the makers, designers and collectors that make up the creative community selling on Etsy.com, the online marketplace for handmade and vintage goods.

Discover unique and affordable gifts for your loved ones with more than 70 local Etsy sellers at the markets, with products ranging from unique jewellery to home-wares.

The event will also include hands-on workshops, artist demonstrations and a gift-wrapping service.

So, why not get your Christmas shopping done early this year?
