Meet The Sellers – Part 2 – Etsy Made Local 2017

Ideas Birmingham will be back at The Custard Factory – Digbeth – for their third Etsy Made Local event, on the 1st and 2nd of December. You can find out the full details about the event here

The wonderful thing about the Etsy Made Local market is that all of the sellers at the event are Etsy sellers from in and around Birmingham. It’s a chance to meet local artists, makers and vintage sellers and to support small local businesses.

We have over 50 sellers joining us across the two days, I’d like to introduce our first set of sellers who will all be joining us on both the Friday and Saturday.
