A SYDNEY MADE CHRISTMAS – Your Local Gift Guide

SYDNEY MADE 2020 CHRISTMAS GIFT GUIDE IS HERE….

The team at Sydney Made are very excited to announce that we will be launching a curated online Christmas Gift Guide like no other.


In the current Covid climate that we are all living in, more and more people have turned to online shopping as the safest, easiest and most practical way to shop.

Rather than have people looking at the big chain retailers this Christmas, we are encouraging everyone to shop local, and support small creative businesses.

We are going to bring Sydney, and all of Australia, THE VERY BEST in handmade, and locally designed products, from our talented Sydney Made makers and designers.

We want everyone to know when you ‘shop small’, you shop ‘quality’, you shop ‘unique’ and most importantly, you shop from people who really care about what they are creating, and putting out into the world.

For more details hop onto our FB event page


Our events are organised by Sydney based volunteers who sell on Etsy, & we thank you for your support.

If you are a maker, please join our Facebook Group: Sydney Made – Makers group.

Air! Space!
