The holidays can be tricky time when looking for the perfect gift. You want something special that speaks from the heart but doesn’t break your bank. A gift for her, gift for him, stocking stuffer for a co-worker, a gift for Sparky (the dog) the list can seem endless. Well, The NY Handmade Collective has you covered. I am so excited this year to be participating in the Holiday Handmade Cavalcade comprised by members of the NY Handmade Collective (formerly the Etsy NY team).
If you are looking for something unique, handmade and locally crafted this event is for you. This year it has been broken up into 2 events the first takes place in Manhattan on December 8-10th at 684 Broadway (corner of Great Jones in NoHo). The second event takes place in Brooklyn December 16 – 17th at the Brooklyn Historical Society in Brooklyn Heights.
This event started out as a DIY event in Beacon, New York and has now grown into a New York City winter tradition for thousands of shoppers looking for holiday gifts. Shoppers have the chance to interact with event sponsors, chat with local artisans, and enter to win raffle prizes.
We are thrilled to be participating in the Manhattan event this year. Our handmade handbags, makeup bags, smartphone wristlets and coin purses will be on full display. We welcome the chance to speak to you about our products. The 2016 Cavalcade, held in Chelsea Market, drew in more than 20,000 attendees and we’re sure this year will be no different. So, stop by mingle, shop and get to know the members of the NY Handmade Collective.
