Here comes Summer!
The Etsy Cambridge team of artists and makers, now working under the banner of ‘Cambridge Made’, will be returning to their favourite venue, St Andrews Street Baptist church, on Saturday June 11th, 10am-5pm, for a sunny, fresh and cheerful Summer Fair. The church was the location for their buzzing three-day Christmas event last year, its central position and on-site cafe making it an ideal stop on any Cambridge shopping or sightseeing trip.
Almost 30 locally-based makers, artists and craftspeople will be setting up shop on June 11th, offering a beautiful range of things to help get your summer going with a swing. Whether you’re looking to update your wardrobe with new designer-made clothes and accessories, kit out your kids with the cutest of original summer outfits, or stock up on handmade cards, papers and gifts you really won’t find on the High Street, you’ll spot something lovely at the Summer Fair. Give your home a seasonal make-over with artisan ceramics, textiles and artwork, check out eco-friendly, 100-percent handmade paper, crochet and fabric toys for kids and babies, and treat yourself to some handmade organic skincare products for your summer holidays.
