I just dropped by the Etsy Made Local market at Battery Acid Club and thought i’d blog bout it quickly so you could drop by too if you’re interested in shopping for handmade goodies like me!
It’s open 12pm – 6pm today and tomorrow (12 & 13 November)

The 2-day event takes place in Singapore, Malaysia and Hong Kong to connect and celebrate the makers, designers and collectors that sell on Etsy.com, the online marketplace for handmade and vintage goods. Besides encouraging people to buy locally handmade items which are unique (and make great gifts! Xmas is a-coming!), the event also includes a watercolour workshop, a letterpress demonstration, a petite calligraphy class and also a basic understanding on urban farming.

Taken from The Royal Press website: “Launched in October 2013, The Royal Press is a letterpress living museum. It began its existence in 1938 as a letterpress printing house on the historic Jonker Street. The Royal Press is one of the oldest surviving polyglot letterpress printing houses in the world. It has withstood the vicissitudes of time, and continues printing for a small clientele today. The museum houses a range of letterpress machines and printed artefacts from its 78-year printing history. There is also an extensive letter-block library with over 150,000 blocks in four writing systems: Roman alphabets, Chinese characters, Arabic and Tamil scripts.”
