What a turn out, everyone involved with the Gippsland Makers Market should be very proud of what they achieved. Fantastic location, amazing stalls and such a great day! Possibly the only down fall of the event was parking, you would of thought the amount of streets and the 200 car parks available in front of the market would have been sufficient but it was chaos. Imagine Fountain Gate at christmas time. People were even making up their own spaces. Through no fault of the market though. Crazy parking is usually expected at these events but could people please listen to their advice and don’t block the service road.
Brock and I decided (well I decided and he had to go along with it) that we would check out the stalls and round up our top picks for the day.
This beautiful little store has the most gorgeous hand made wooden toys, perfect for growing minds and imaginary play. I of course was a huge fan of the turquoise camera, but I could easily buy it all. Those little mountain peaks would be the perfect accessory for any kids bedroom, especially if you love a good “shelfie.”
Lekkel & Co
Such vibrant colours and fantastic products. I’ll be adding those mini deck chairs to Brock’s Christmas list. The only problem would be deciding on a colour! Lekkel & Co offer lounge bags, mini deck chairs, beach clutches, outdoor throw cushions, swim bags, outdoor seat pads, outdoor floor cushions and waterproof totes! By the end of the market you could of found Brock and I curled up in one of these lounge bags!
Visiting this store and I could almost here myself “clucking” these items were perfect for a nursery/child’s bedroom. They make Teepees, baby clips, baby play gyms, teether’s, mats and blocks. Not sure if that fabric is for you? Well they also do custom orders. Definitely worth checking them out!
I think I could just leave the photos here…seriously how amazing are these pots? Handcrafted and the perfect added decor to any home.
Hello Sweet Mae
Beautiful handmade homewares and accessories such as fabric baskets and zipper pouches. Such beautiful prints and great quality. I’m pretty sure our house could do with a touch of colourful organisation.
The last in our round up is Parkly Press, they create custom designed stationary. We will definitely be getting in touch with Erin. These would make the perfect gift for someone or if your like me you will just buy it yourself.
Thank you for taking the time to read our roundup of our top picks for the Gippsland Makers Market. Such a successful day and can’t wait for the next one.
