Winter is all about staying indoors — and you want those interiors to look as great as possible. Art and design lovers, that's where the Queensland Art Gallery and Gallery of Modern Art's annual Winter Design Market comes in. Browse, buy and then prepare to get cosy.
Find jewellery, ceramics, textiles, homewares and clothing and more at the day-long maker market, which will feature more than 40 stalls when it takes over the GOMA forecourt from 9am until 4pm on Saturday, July 28. Don't go giving their official store a miss either — take the time to peruse the GOMA collection of books and art, and thank us for the tip later. Or, make a day of it and drop by the Patricia Piccinini exhibition while you're there.
Remember: cute design wares call for cash, as EFTPOS facilities might not be available at all sellers. And while GOMA will host another design market once the silly season rolls around, getting your gift shopping out of the way now will make you feel like Christmas has come early.
