The who, the what and the how…

Etsy Manchester (EtsyMCR) is a local group of creative individuals who sell on the ecommerce site etsy.com. The group started at the tail end of 2010 gathering together artists, suppliers and vintage sellers who live and work in the Greater Manchester area.

In 2014 under new leadership, the group expanded its ambitions and decided to start putting on regular meetups allowing members to be part of a supportive and encouraging group of fellow Manchester-based creatives. We also started holding exciting community-based events to integrate art and creativity into people’s everyday lives.
