If you haven’t heard the news yet, Etsy is in town – but only for two more days. The #UnwrapEtsy holiday shop opened its doors at our Chinatown store (434 Columbia St.) last week and it’s been a full house right from opening night. And for good reason too. There’s over 30 local designers and makers in store and while they’re always available online through their Etsy stores, the good folks at behind the online marketplace have brought them together all under one (physical) roof.

It’s a good place to get a head start on holiday shopping or even browse through all that’s in store and find it online later. They’re open from 11-7PM on Tuesday and until 6PM on Wednesday before they pack it all up. For a full list of all the local vendors in store, check them out on our website here.
