Craft market will be held at the hotel

The second annual Etsy Made Local Christmas Market will take place on Sunday December 1 at the Royal Hotel, St Nicholas Street, Scarborough, from 10am to 4pm.

New for this year is a unique fusion paint demonstration by Butterfly’s Wing and also the opportunity for the first 50 shoppers through the door to receive a branded tote bag and mug, with each bag containing a different selection of donated gifts from the makers.

Etsy North Yorkshire Coast and Moors makers will be selling creations ranging from bags to bangles, allowing shoppers to meet with and buy directly from talented local makers, creators and designers who also sell on Esty, the global website for unique and handcrafted goods.

Katy Armstrong, organiser of the event, said: “Following last year’s popular artisan event, we have decided to organise our second annual on the first Sunday of Advent.

“We realised last year that many who attended enjoyed meeting the talent behind the bespoke, handmade gifts that were available to buy. The event is a great opportunity for shoppers to discover the creative talent in the area without relying solely the high street for festive shopping.

“We holding the event at the Royal Hotel, a lovely example of a Regency building and one that is easy to get to from the centre of town.

“The hotel also has great facilities and is bound to get everyone in the festive mood.”

There is still space for Esty sellers to send in an application via links on the Etsy Made Local Christmas Market Facebook page.
