Crafty Business Barnsley will be helping the people of Barnsley conquer their Christmas shopping and connect with the makers and designers behind the perfect gifts at the Etsy Made Local Christmas market, at The Digital Media Centre on Saturday 30th November.

The market is part of a national event that will see towns and cities from coast to coast celebrating the makers and designers that make up the creative community selling on Etsy.com, the online marketplace for handmade and vintage goods, and encouraging people to look locally for this year’s Christmas gifts.

There will also be food, drink, creative activities and live music on offer to give families a festive treat!
