The Christmas Line Up
THE CHRISTMAS LINE UP
After much curating and planning, we now have the line up for the Christmas 2019 Handmade Market. The designers and producers that will be at the market are now available to view, so you can plan your Christmas shopping now!
As usual, we have placed the traders into categories to make the search easier. Have a look at the Gourmet Pantry section if you want to start thinking about your festive menu. Plan your cocktails and wine list through the Drinks category. Or feast your eyes on the list of street food traders.
The directory lists fashion, accessories and jewellery designers. As ever, there is a breadth of styles available, making it easy for you to find the perfect gift for anyone. Give the gift of skincare, especially when it’s handmade and ethically produced. You’ll be spoiled for choice in the artwork category, with artists displaying their unique perspective on the Australian landscape and its wildlife. And you can prepare your home with a wonderful mix of ceramics, textiles, candles and homewares.
The For Men category is populated with designers and producers that keep the guys in mind. And we’re always keen to give Santa a helping hand. Have a look in the Children’s category for clothes, gifts, heirlooms, books and toys. You can also make your four legged friends happy with a treat from Handmade on Christmas morning.
We have a number of new traders attending the market. Please stop in and see what they have made for you and welcome them to the market. And you can also check out the Conscious Living category. This is the home of traders who are taking an extra step towards a conscious lifestyle. Browse the vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, organic, sustainable and ethical traders that we love to host at the market.
Now that we have Australian Made Retail Supporter status, we have talked to the traders about how they make their products. We hope that you will too, as the makers are always happy to chat about how they make what’s in your shopping bag and the inspiration behind it. At Christmas, we know the shops are full of mass produced and disposable gifts. But we hope that you will consider buying Australian made and supporting small business through the holiday season.
