Christmas Craftmap 2010

This festive season is a treat of all of us who love handmade items. There are more craft fairs, independent retailers and pop-up shops than any previous year, enough to get lost admiring shapes, colours and textures for days. To help you (and ourselves!) on the quest to find the perfect handcrafted gift we have created a map with all the shops, markets and exhibitions in Edinburgh this Christmas.

We hope you enjoy it and don’t forget to come back and let us know which places you visited and what you bought.
Happy shopping!!!

By buying handmade you not only get a unique piece of work but you also support local artists, designers and craftspeople.

If you have a shop or are holding an event we have missed please let us know.
