Chelsea, NY, October 17th, 2015 - As the leaves turn color and the days become brisk, PS 11 and Etsy NY are back again to capture the spirit of the harvest with two fabulous fall celebrations on one block, steps from the iconic Highline Park and located in the middle of the historic Chelsea neighborhood in Manhattan.

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, will team up again to present for the whole community a tremendous array of activities for young and old alike; bouncy castles, food, games and raffles for the kids (and the kids at heart!) and for the grown-ups, a wonderful, affordable artisan market full of hand-made-only products from local designers.

Products at the market this year include handcrafted fine and fashion jewelry for every taste, paper goods and stationery for that special person or occasion, and an amazing variety of unique clothing and accessories for both children and adults. The market will also feature all-natural and eco-friendly candles and skincare products in wonderfully original scents and pretty hand-sewn linens for your fall table. As if this weren’t enough, Etsy NY will also feature a selection of unique, funky and cool original art and accessories as well as fun, retro-inspired housewares. Nobody visiting Crafts in Chelsea at PS 11 Fall Festival this October 17th, be ye a local or visitor, will want to leave without stopping to scoop up something locally-made and one-of-a-kind from these real New York makers as a token of their experience.

The event is also for a good cause; all artist vendor fees and festival proceeds directly benefit the children and the art enrichment programs at PS 11.
