What is Etsy?

Etsy is a global creative commerce platform that encourages small entrepreneurs to showcase their unique goods. It is an online shopping website with different registered sellers of various products — handmade items, vintage goods, and craft supplies.


 


There are boutiques, craft fairs, and flea markets that the Etsy Teams are organising to help the community find and shop items offline. Etsy Team is a community feature in Etsy that is based in a certain location, where sellers connect with other sellers.

There will be over 100 sellers in the Etsy Community Market. Local makers, artists, designers, and curators will showcase their handmade goods, vintage stuff, and other interesting products.

Foodies will be delighted with the gourmet fare and various selections of beverages, available at the food precinct. Wines will also be served at the bar. Live music acts, craft workshops, and an artist demo by Ironlak are the highlights to watch out for.

 

The market is seen to be crowded as families from the surrounding suburbs will be there. Here are the tips before going to the Etsy Community Market.
