Etsy Local launches for craft fair sellers

By Dan Wilson November 15, 2013 - 1:41 pm

Etsy have launched an interesting new service and app that will help you track down Etsy sellers who might be trading in your area.

Etsy says: “We’ve seen how local craft fairs give sellers new opportunities to expand their businesses, and help our community grow. To spread the word about these local events and bring our online communities to the offline, we’re excited to introduce Etsy Local. This free, new feature will help shoppers connect with Etsy sellers who are participating in fairs and markets in their local area.”

“Shoppers can search by location and timeframe to see where Etsy sellers have set up shop. In addition to basic information like the event’s date, time, and venue, Etsy Local provides buyers with a list of sellers who’ve confirmed their attendance, as well as links to those sellers’ Etsy shops.”

You can find it here:

It’s a rather neat idea and definitely something that could prove highly popular with the crafty set who trade on Etsy.
