Hey New York Indie Crafters! If you haven’t already seen the news, the Etsy NY Street Team has changed their name and will now be formally known as the NY Handmade Collective (NYHC).
With a fresh, reenergized mission, name and look, the NY Handmade Collective (formerly known as the Etsy NY Street Team) is thrilled to announce an exciting, renewed focus on the local community and the potential of its creative small-business members. Through education, mentorship and market opportunities, NYHC will expand its possibilities while at the same time continuing its special longstanding affiliation with the Etsy mothership in Brooklyn, Etsy, Inc.
As NYHC grows while holding on to what’s great, this rebrand celebrates the evolution of the team as well as a renewed commitment to its grassroots effort of bringing together master craft entrepreneurs and community to help one another flourish in an increasingly commercial world. The collective in its new iteration also intends to double-down on its work of organizing local artisans to connect and educate the wider world on the positive impacts and overall human value in promoting and buying handmade. NYHC will continue its outreach through its non-profit, all-volunteer social media channels, blog and website as well as through its continued all-in-house design, production and execution of quality-curated, warm and affordable handmade markets in the area and beyond.
