What: The 4th Annual etsyRAIN Handmade Holiday Show moves to Marion Oliver McCaw Hall at Seattle Center this November. This marks the biggest venue and the most vendors the etsyRAIN Handmade Holiday show has offered in its four-year history. The holiday show will be held on Black Friday weekend to give holiday shoppers the chance to kick off the biggest shopping season of the year with beautiful handmade gifts from local artists and craft makers.

The show will take place on Friday, November 23 from 11 am - 6 pm and Saturday, November 24 from 11 am - 5 pm. Taking over two floors in the Grand Lobby and Kreielsheimer Promenade of the Hall, this show will feature 107 vendors hand-selected during an intense jurying process by the group’s all-volunteer leadership team.

“We were looking for a great location to expand our Handmade Holiday show to present even more quality gifts to shoppers and were thrilled to discover that Marion Oliver McCaw Hall at Seattle Center was available. It’s a beautiful, spacious venue that will help us fulfill our main mission to support as many Pacific Northwest based handmade artists as we can”, said etsyRAIN Organizer, Marlo Miyashiro.

etsyRAIN invites all gift shoppers to “Buy Handmade - Buy Seattle-made” and support small businesses this holiday season.
