We popped into the Etsy Makers Cornwall Christmas Fair and what an awesome little evening it was. Don’t panic it’s going to be in The Guildhall Hall, St Ives all weekend so make sure you head along.
The Etsy Makers Cornwall Christmas Fair
The Etsy Makers of Cornwall and St Ives gathered 35 of their best sellers to feature at this brand new Christmas Fair. With local designers and makers all selling unique gifts and crafts all featured on the ever-growing website Etsy.
This event was organised by the Cornish makers themselves and kicked off on Friday evening at 6pm. We arrived shortly after welcoming Santa on the Lifeboat in the harbour, so by the time we got there is was filling up quickly. With a cocktail bar and live music from Tom Dale the atmosphere was overwhelmingly festive.
The Etsy Makers Cornwall Christmas Fair is really showcasing the home grown talent we have, and celebrates shopping local and supporting small Cornish businesses.
It’s great to be able to purchase straight from the buyers, and ask those questions or enquire into personalisations you otherwise would not get the chance to.
This free event is worth popping along to this weekend. There’s even some make-you-own craft workshops being held for just £5 each.
You will be able to browse lots of jewellery, glass making, knitters, artists, textiles and lots of Christmas gift ideas… Try to shop a little more local this year!
