EtsyNY and Brother Bring Holiday Handmade Cavalcade to Chelsea Market on December 5th and 6th

Festival Offers Unique Gift Shopping and Free Products for First 100

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–On December 5th and 6th, a shopping festival of
handmade products will take over Chelsea Market and offer holiday
shoppers a special opportunity to purchase unique, one-of-a-kind gifts
crafted by artisan from the New York metro area. The event, hosted by
The EtsyNY Street Team and sponsored by Brother International
Corporation, will feature more than 50 different tri-state area vendors
and their wares, including jewelry, greeting cards, art, clothing,
accessories and gifts for babies. Platinum sponsor, Brother
International Company, will be on hand to introduce would-be crafters
and sewists to the ScanNCut2 and latest sewing machine models.

“We are honored to be the Platinum Sponsor of the Holiday Handmade
Cavalcade. Brother sets the standard for innovation and unleashes
creative freedom for all DIY/crafters, paper crafters, quilters, sewers
and mixed media artists. We are here to show our support of the Etsy New
York Street Team and our handmade crafting community,” said Dean F.
Shulman, Sr. Vice President, Brother International Corporation.

“Chelsea Market provides an exciting venue for our vendors to be seen by
tourists and locals alike,” said Jenny Topolski, operations director for
the EtsyNY Team. “Shoppers are already at the market in search of
high-quality local food, and I expect locally hand-crafted gifts will be
a welcome part of their experience.”

Early birds will be rewarded with one of our coveted goodie bags. The
first 100 shoppers on each day will go home with products, discount
coupons, and other fun surprises from our vendors and sponsors. Shoppers
will also receive raffle tickets with every purchase made so they can
try their luck at some fabulous prizes. Last year’s Holiday Handmade
Cavalcade drew in more than 16,000 attendees.

The Holiday Handmade Cavalcade will take place December 5th from 10am to
8pm and December 6th from 10am to 7pm. Admission to this event is free.
