This weekend market’s theme is Make It Truly Yours – so if you’re into unique, bespoke or personalised gifts, check out these highlights!
Fantastic local artisans under one roof
We love a good weekend market and we’re excited about this special appearance by local artists. Got a thing for tea? Teapsy uses handpicked ingredients to create unique blends full of flavour. They’ll be hanging out with Mood Designs, who’ll be showcasing handmade wire jewelry. Stone for Gold takes soft, buttery leather to create bespoke and limited edition accessories including key forbs, wallets and bags. You can even have your initials embossed if you like.
For those looking for art to spruce up their walls, check out Peonies in Print for customised watercolour calligraphy. Colourful Strings also has cheerful illustrations that artist Chiohui combines with embroidery. Handicraft fans, there’s something for you too! We’re loving Made by Michy’s cute crochet animals and Strangely Yours’ whimsical woodcrafts. Of course, you can’t forget about the kids. For comfy, fluffy socks to warm your little one’s toes, check out The Parallel Station and its super cute monster claw socks.
Accessorise, accessorise, accessorise
If you’re like us and can’t get enough of accessories, Statelight has snazzy charm lockets and cool constellation necklaces that you can personalise. Take your arm candy game to a whole new level with OAT (Awe Of Things)’s paracord accessories – they can also fix broken keychains, camera wrist straps – you name it!
Our Wheelock faves have something special too!
