The word ‘Etsy’ is enough to get a craft-lovers heart all a-flutter, with etsy.com being one of the biggest online communities for selling and buying crafts, wares, art and everything homemade. Now, imagine teaming Etsy with a sunny weekend market event in Adelaide... This is exactly what has been happening the past weekend! Etsy Adelaide has teamed with Flinders Street Market to celebrate the meeting and making of stall holders from all over our city.
An international Etsy event, the market encourages people to come and support local makers of everything from gifts and home wares to baked goods and soaps, and everything in between! Craft and how-to sessions also took place, allowing shoppers to get involved in the kitsch and creative atmosphere of their surroundings.
The market ran all weekend and while Saturday attracted a steady crowd of totally chuffed shoppers and stall-holders, the plans for Sunday are about to put an interesting twist on your usual Sunday market. Turn up, find a seat and get your hands busy. You will feel like you are back in primary school, with long wooden trestle tables covered in bits of printed paper, funky material scraps and buttons ready for the ultimate making-fest. Top that off with a chai tea and some cake from one of the market stalls, and you’ve got yourself the ultimate crafternoon.
