Lovers of all things local and handmade are marking their calendars for Saturday December 3rd, when the local Etsy Team, The {NewNew}, hosts its fourth annual Holiday Handmade Cavalcade at the sprawling arts and music venue Public Assembly, in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. From 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. shoppers can load up on clothing, jewelry, accessories, paper goods, bath and body treasures, toys, housewares and more, all handmade by some of the most creative local artisans and crafters in the NYC metropolitan area.

"The first 200 shoppers to arrive will receive free goodie bags packed with a unique
sampling of wares from the {NewNew}," said Felicity Stiverson, who is running this year's
event. "Shoppers will also receive, with each purchase they make, a raffle ticket for a chance to win one of ten {NewNew} handmade prize packages", she added.

In keeping with its tradition of partnering with local non-profits, the {NewNew} will have representatives from The Brooklyn Community Foundation, an organization that improves the lives of Brooklyn residents and their communities through local giving, grant making and community service, at the event with information for anyone looking to get involved with the important work they do.
