If Melbourne town's end-of-year weather is getting you down — sweltering one day, streaming from the skies the next — here is some small solace for you. Melbourne's Boho Luxe Market (their words, not ours) is determined to make you remember those times when you could dip your toes in the ocean without needing an umbrella, and take you to a sun-dappled place of dreamcatchers and flower crowns.
Because these things are apparently synonymous with Byron Bay, the market's goal is to bring "that Byron Bay vibe to Melbourne" — so expect all of the above except for the beach bit. For their festive run, they'll be in town on Sunday, December 10, when you can treat yourself to a day of Christmas wanderlust in the Atrium at Federation Square. There'll be heaps of stalls featuring bohemian fashion, jewellery, homewares, pet products and kids stuff for tiny people too. There are even some complimentary tote bags on offer for the first 100 shoppers; the likes of cupcakes, doughnuts, vegan chocolate and Vietnamese dishes to eat, and live music amping up the relaxed vibes as well.
