Etsy NY Team Returns to Chelsea Market for
8th Annual Holiday Handmade Cavalcade
December 5th | 10:00 am to 8:00 pm
December 6th | 10:00 am to 7:00 pm
NEW YORK, NY (Oct. 19, 2015) – The holidays are still a couple months away, but before you know it, that familiar chill will roll in and New York City will be blanketed with festive cheer once again. And in that spirit, the Etsy NY Team will return to Chelsea Market to host its eighth annual Holiday Handmade Cavalcade. More than 50 vendors will help shoppers find the perfect gift for everyone on their list (and maybe grab a treat or two for themselves)!
The grand weekend event will take place December 5th from 10am to 8pm and December 6th from 10am to 7pm with a selection of handmade wares including jewelry, greeting cards, art, beauty products, clothing, gifts for baby, and more from indie vendors all based in the tri-state area. Last year’s Holiday Handmade Cavalcade drew in more than 16,000 attendees and we’re sure the team will have Chelsea Market buzzing once again! Chelsea Market, which is located on 75 Ninth Avenue between 15th and 16th Streets, is a popular shopping destination for both locals and out-of-towners and has become the go-to food hub in the Meatpacking District. It’s also the best spot from which to kick off an afternoon stroll up the High Line, an elevated park just across the market.
Early birds will be rewarded with one of our coveted goodie bags. The first 100 shoppers on each day will go home with products, discount coupons, and other fun surprises from our vendors and sponsors. Shoppers will also receive raffle tickets with every purchase made so they can try their luck at some fabulous prizes from the talented vendors and makers of the Etsy NY Team. Raffle tickets will be available for sale for those who wish to increase their chances of scoring a basket full of great gifts for themselves or loved ones.
So come support your local artisans and small businesses and take the stress out of holiday shopping. This one-stop holiday shop will actually make that wonderful time of year an absolute breeze!
Admission to this event is free. For more information about the Etsy NY Team’s Holiday Handmade Cavalcade, visit www.handmadecavalcade.com.
