Did you spot the Etsy Made Local Christmas Market in my round-up of festive maker markets in London? With just days to go until the annual Christmas fair at Tooting Tram and Social, I’ve collaborated with the brilliant London Local Etsy Team to give you a taste of the sorts of wares you’ll find on sale. If you’re looking to ‘shop small’ this Christmas and buy unique gifts from talented indie makers, then don’t miss this market which is full to the brim of carefully crafted gifts from over 30 talented Etsy sellers.
The wonderful London Local Etsy team sent me a curated box of goodies to showcase some of the gifts that will be on sale at the fair, and as usual, I was completely blown away. Check these out…
Neja makes beautifully eclectic geometric jewellery. Her amazing range of colourful ear-rings combine polymer clay with various media such as brass, yarn and faux leather. If you check out her Instagram, prepare for ear envy! I love these stunning black and white marbled clay and brass ear-rings. I think I gasped when I opened the box, and can’t wait to take them on their first outing! Watch out world.
My nose found the gift from Hello Marilu long before my eyes did, as the whole box was filled with a wonderful, fresh fragrance. Once I’d found the source of this amazing smell, I was excited to unwrap a hand poured lemongrass and ginger soy wax candle. Usually my boyfriend is a bit fussy when it comes to scented candles, but even he was sold, coming over to check it out instantly. As well as candles, Mary-Ann sells hand-illustrated ceramic baubles, stationery and planters from her South London studio.
