With Christmas approaching, the stress of finding suitable presents for friends and family is no doubt starting to creep up on many people. So this year, why not ditch the generic stores and the big brands this Christmas, and get your loved ones gifts that are handmade locally?
Etsy, the online platform where individuals can sell their hand-crafted products, is bringing its National Christmas Market to Glasgow on December 6. You'll be able to find everything from jewellery and clothes to furniture, art prints and candles, as 60 sellers from around Glasgow set up shop at The Briggait.
The line-up includes Claire Barclay Draws with her quirky and colourful jewellery, Glasgow School of Art graduate and textile designer Laura Spring, Peony and Thistle with their retro notebooks and buntings, vintage furniture refurbisher Emily Rose Vintage and colourful soap creators Twa Burds Soaps, plus many more.
So don’t stress out this Christmas, and get something truly original for your dear ones. Or maybe just treat yourself - you deserve it after all that Christmas shopping.
Etsy Made Local, Sunday December 6, 12-4pm, The Briggait. Free entry.
