In addition to these unique shopping opportunities, the festival also boasts a bouncy castle and indoor crafts for the kids. This is a benefit for the arts curriculum of PS11, so come out and support our schools!

Ten Days to Go Til Crafts in Chelsea!

For those of you who missed out on last weekend's Spring Handmade Cavalcade, take heart! The Etsy New York team is back in action with even more of our fab makers at the upcoming Crafts in Chelsea Spring Festival. Save the date for Saturday May 19th, from 11 am-4 pm, when Etsy New York artisans will take over West 21st street in Manhattan (between 8th and 9th avenues) for a craft fair benefiting PS 11. This festival is a perfect venue for the whole family, offering up not only beautiful handmade wares, but food and entertainment for the kiddos as well. Proceeds from the day will enable the PTA at PS 11 buy much needed supplies for their school. So come on down and say hello to your friends from Etsy New York. We'll be waiting for you!
