Etsy Made Local winter makers market

CBRmade are hosting another Etsy Made Local market – yay!

Our winter makers market will be at the Budawang Pavilion at Exhibition Park in Canberra on 9 May 2020.

With Mothers Day on 10 May, it’s the perfect opportunity to find a thoughtful handmade gift, or to spend time with the mother figure in your life.

How many stalls will there be?

  • There will be approximately 120 stalls at our winter market.

Is it only people from Canberra?

  • Applications from businesses based in or near Canberra will receive preference.
  • Applications from businesses based in regional NSW will be considered.
  • Businesses based in other major cities will only be considered if they are selling a unique item not already on offer, and/or if space allows.

How will you select who gets in?

Several considerations will be made when selecting the winter market stall lineup.

These include:

  • if you were a stallholder at EML November 2019
  • your location
  • what you sell
  • the uniqueness of what you sell
  • the quality of what you sell
  • your contribution to the CBRmade community.

We will limit the number of each stall type to ensure an even distribution of products. For example, we will only accept a certain number of jewellery stalls, candle stalls, soap stalls, etc.

This is to avoid the “Ugh, it’s just all JEWELLERY!” factor.

How many people came to your last market?

We had around 100 stallholders and over 7000 people attend our CBRmade Etsy Made Local market in November 2019.

Feedback from stallholders and customers was very positive.

Aren’t there enough Canberra markets already?

We know there are other hugely successful markets in Canberra where people go to sell their amazing handmade products.

The gap that we want to fill is the spotlight on local talent. We want Canberrans to buy products made in Canberra, from other Canberrans.

We are building a supportive community where we build each other up to succeed.

And that’s what makes us different.
