Get off the internet and experience the best of Brisbane’s local Etsy sellers in real life.

If you like buying cute, crafty, handmade and vintage wares, then chances are pretty good you’ve spent some time on Etsy’s online marketplace.

Now you can cut out the middleman — well, your web browser — and browse the work of 170 local and talented Etsy sellers in person.

You can get all your Christmas shopping done early (assuming your friends and family like presents that have been hand-crafted with love) at the Brisbane Etsy Made Local markets.

As well as the locally made products on offer, you’ll be able to sign up for craft workshops and see artists running demos all day.

The Brisbane Etsy Made Local 2016 markets will be held at Brisbane Showgrounds (600 Gregory Terrace, Bowen Hills) on Saturday 19 November from 10am to 4pm; a gold coin entry fee will apply.
