The Makers and Shakers Market will visit Melbourne again this November, bringing with it the whole kit and caboodle of bespoke ceramics, homewares and jewellery (as well as tasty food to rejuvenate you when you get the oh-no-I-just-spent-all-my-money sweats).
Kick things off at 10am with a coffee, spend a few hours browsing, and then chow down on a toastie or perhaps a gluten-free vegan doughnut from Nutie. The market gives space to local makers to sell their handmade wares, with everything from ceramic keep cups to floral tote bags to be found.
Stallholders this time round include bright art by Laura Blythman, flowers from Mittoo Blooms, designer soaps by Fazeek, whimsical lamps from Upswitch and jars of sticky caramel from Misty's Salted Caramel. And that's just the crust of the pie — there are many more to choose from when you take a full bite, and a free Christmas craft workshop at 11am.
