2016 EtsyNY Crafts in Chelsea – Local Designers and Artisans Show Support for PS 11’s Arts Program with Handmade Market
Chelsea, NY, October 15th, 2016 - As autumn breezes into the historic Chelsea neighborhood, as children fall back into the routine of school, and the cooler weather make strolling the streets a delight, comes the time to once again join PS 11 and Etsy NY at their classic harvest time celebration, Crafts in Chelsea.
The Etsy New York Street Team, a vibrant collective of multi-discipline artisans from the metro area, and PS 11, The William T Harris school, are presenting on this date a wondrous array of celebratory activities sure to please young, old, native and visitor; games, raffles, homemade sweets and goodies inside the school grounds, and on the street, an affordable artisan market full of original, hand-made-only products from local designers.
Shoppers will find beautiful handcrafted jewelry to suit every taste, but especially the tastes of New York. Whether you like elegant and simple, or bright and funky, our artists are locals and so run the gamut of New York style. We have paper goods and charming stationery, knitwear that will get you ready for winter, unique children’s clothing and footwear, adorable little monsters in plush and crochet, eco-friendly home goods and unique fashion, ceramics, original art prints, and amazing skincare products. There will even be treats for your pets, and captivating art for the pet lover. All artist vendor fees and festival proceeds will benefit the school and the children's art enrichment programs. So come out to support our public school and our Etsy artists this fall on October 15th at Crafts in Chelsea and the PS 11 Fall Festival. Everyone will be sure to find something special, one of a kind, and locally made!
