A Handmade Christmas Market is the dedicated festive offshoot of the Brisbane Twilight Markets, because it's that time of year. But rather than decking King George Square with plenty of presents, it's taking the gift-buying over to the State Library of Queensland.

There'll be a hefty array of stalls staffed by some pretty nifty and talented artists, with more than 100 artisans selling their wares. Expect an eclectic selection of goods on offer, all of the 100-percent locally handmade variety.

Plus, this market is all about sound, smell and sales — live music will provide the soundtrack to the evening, a food precinct will take care of your hunger, and expect to be hit with that spring flowerbed smell that always lingers when there's a soap stall around.

The markets run on Saturday, December 8 from 10am–4pm. Take along some cash and stock up on all things crafty. Plus, there'll be an on-site artist demonstrations if all that shopping leaves you inspired.
