Do you usually leave your gift purchasing until the last minute? Have you vowed to finally do better this year? Would you like to buy Christmas presents for all of your friends and family members all at once, and in the one spot — even if you currently have zero idea of what you'll get them?

Enter The Made Local Market, which is like Etsy IRL — and is hitting Brisbane this spring to lend a hand with your festive shopping. Get a jump on Christmas more than a month early or treat yo'self; whichever fits, you'll have plenty to browse and buy.

In the spotlight here: artisans, makers, artists and designers in local communities, with The Made Local Market giving them the opportunity to sell their creations in a physical space. So, whether you're on the hunt for handmade wares or vintage goods, these guys have got you covered.

The market will take place in the Exhibition Building at the Brisbane Showgrounds from 9am–4pm on Saturday, November 4 and 9am–3pm on Sunday, November 5 — so spreading across two days. Because it focuses on the best local talent, every market is filled with different stallholders and unique creations, but there'll be more than 140 stalls at this one. Supporting creative small businesses and scoring a killer gift for your loved ones is a win for everyone involved, so head along and get your shopping sorted.

Entry costs $2 — and, the whole thing will be cashless, so don't forget your cards. There'll also be craft workshops, maker demonstrations, food trucks slinging bites to eat, and plenty of places to get caffeinated.
