It's a Wrap: Made Local Market
Thank you to everyone who came along to the Made Local Market and supported their local businesses, artists, foodies and makers this Christmas. We couldn't have wished for a better weekend with a huge turn out and so many great market vibes. We love our community!
The sun was shining, the Stackwood studios were open to the public, the plant store was stocked high with greenery and our venue filled with 30+ of our favourite artisans and makers. We welcomed faces old and new through the doors to get a look inside the warehouse and meet our community of makers.
Our stands were looking particularly bright and colourful this market like Sarana Haeata with her beautiful collection of illustrations.
Newcomer to the Made Local, Picked Cactus was a crowd favourite. They sold out so many styles of their bold statement earrings, we wouldn't be surprised if you start spotting them in ears around town!
Floral Army made up custom posies and wreaths featuring colourful natives, proteas and soft foliage.
Shoppers got the opportunity to have one-on-one time with our makers like Flora Waycott, learning about the process behind each object.
The market had a strong fashion contingent, including Many Peaks Assembly and her carefully designed items for everyday.
Marime Studios' refined collection of boldly shaped jewellery was a hit with Christmas shoppers.
Kuld Creamery kept our sweet cravings in check with Canadian-style ice cream and cookies.
Products disappeared very quickly from the shelves of Clean Slate Skin Care, with their massive studio and seconds sale on all weekend.
Kids of all ages enjoyed getting creative and creating plaster decorations with Earth Friendly Arts.
All topped off with the soulful sounds of local songstress Racoo which had our yard packed, to say the least!
We were so overwhelmed by the incredible community support for our market event that we have to say another massive thank you to all the vendors involved and all those who attended on the weekend.
Congratulations to @nurtuingmygirls for winning our $250 competition to spend on market weekend and to Immogen Dillon & Marilyn Morin who picked up $50 store vouchers as door prizes.
