We are so excited to announce that this year's "Holiday Market Experience" offering four unique opportunities for shoppers to buy local, handmade gifts this holiday season!

This holiday season NY Handmade Collective (NYHC) is showcasing our collective history as makers, and offering our customers something new and a little bit different: the chance to explore the history of making in NYC, past and present. Experience, learn, and shop as more than 70 indie vendors from across the Tri-State Area showcase their work in four different markets at four different locations in Manhattan and Brooklyn.

The 2017 holiday season kicks off with “Making New York-Small Business Saturday/Weekend Market” at the Brooklyn Art Library in Williamsburg on Saturday November 25th and Sunday November 26th. For the first time, this event hosted by NYHC in partnership with AMEX and Etsy celebrates small business with a day devoted to shopping small and local.

From November 27-December 3, NYHC artisans will present “Making New York-A Hands-on History & Shopping Experience” at Chelsea Market’s event space. This highly curated week-long market will showcase the history of handmade makers/settlers to our team members today, bringing together some of the best brands in local handmade and will include some hands-on workshops.

Two more markets make up the well known and sought after annual Holiday Handmade Cavalcade - first, in Manhattan (December 8-10, in a pop-up space at the corner of Broadway and Great Jones Street), and again, in Brooklyn (December 16 & 17, at the Brooklyn Historical Society.) The Holiday Handmade Cavalcade has nine years worth of history and offers visitors the opportunity to not only do their holiday shopping, but to learn about the techniques used by these local artisans.

Four great venues, two historical boroughs. Over 70 local, handmade vendors. Shop handmade for your holiday needs!
