With Christmas nearing rapidly and our shopping prospects being very different this year I have decided to take part in a few virtual markets to join together with some of my fellow makers, creatives and artists like we usually would at our outdoor fairs.
You'll probably have noticed quite a few virtual markets popping up on your social media feeds at the moment. They really are a great way to support your own local indie businesses all from the comfort of your own sofa.
I know I have found some wonderful unique gifts to start my Christmas shopping with and it really is fantastic to feel part of a positive community, for both sellers and buyers alike, during these strange times.
If you would like to find out more about some great virtual markets please do check out my favourite selection below.

The Etsy Dorset Team Christmas Fair will take place on 4th - 6th December this year. Every stall holder will be featured on the Dorset Team Instagram page over the three days. You can also find all of the Dorset Teams seller's goodies in our collective Etsy pages.
I'd love to hear about your favourite online Christmas markets and where you will be doing your virtual shopping this year. Please do let me know in the comments below.
