ABOUT THE MARKET
The Holiday Handmade Cavalcade has nine years worth of history, and has become a must for holiday shoppers looking for unique and locally crafted gifts for their loved ones. Comprised of members from the NY Handmade Collective (formerly Etsy NY Team), this holiday market showcases a selection of handmade wares including jewelry, greeting cards, art, beauty products, clothing, gifts for baby, and more from indie vendors all based in the tri-state area.
What started as a DIY event in Beacon, NY in 2008 has now grown into a New York City winter tradition for thousands of shoppers looking for local and unexpected holiday products. In addition to the high-quality, handmade wares for sale, shoppers have the opportunity to interact with our event sponsors, mingle with local artisans, and come away with goodie bags and coveted raffle prizes. The 2015 Holiday Handmade Cavalcade, held in the Meatpacking District’s Chelsea Market, drew in more than 16,000 attendees and we’re sure the team will have Chelsea Market buzzing once again!
So come support your local artisans and small businesses and take the stress out of holiday shopping. This one-stop holiday shop will actually make that wonderful time of year an absolute breeze!
