The Etsy Market is a series of virtual shopping events that spotlight seller communities. Etsy partners with community leaders and individual sellers to bring markets to life so buyers can discover unique and special items from around the world.
In an ever-changing world, we're always exploring new ways of connecting the buyers and sellers of this creative community. So, we're excited to share that The Etsy Market is going live for the first time, exclusively on the Etsy app. We’ve partnered with some incredible shops, inviting them to share stories and showcase their work. Buyers will be able to purchase items and interact with sellers during the live market experience, unlocking new ways for sellers to build meaningful connections around their shops.
Head to the app to preview the upcoming schedule, set reminders, and get notified of when the makers go live—and be sure to tune in to check out your fellow talented creatives on June 14 and 15*. To learn more about this upcoming event, click here.

The Etsy Market Lookbook**
We’re working on a brand new edition of the Etsy Market lookbook. The Etsy Market is a series of virtual shopping events that pop up across different cities around the world.
Some events are run by groups of Etsy sellers, directly sharing their creativity with their community. Others are run by us, with the goal of celebrating incredible makers. Either way, you’re sure to have an incredible, inspiring time! Mark your calendar! Discover events happening in your area.
Sellers will need to provide information about their shops and listings to apply.
Let's hope Etsy can do better than eBay when it comes to live virtual shopping events - a pretty low bar indeed. 😂
