Take your Christmas shopping to the next level this December — that is, to level four of The Strand Arcade. That's where a large collection of artisan producers will be selling home products, ceramics, accessories and more. And it's all in the name of supporting independent, sustainable Australian art, fashion and design.
Kicking off on Thursday, December 7, it'll all take place at Courtesy of the Artist's 200-square-metre multipurpose space at the top of the arcade. Look out for products from a long list of Australian makers including Alison Jackson Tableware, watches from Aãrk Collective, Isobel Sippel Studio, Gewürzhaus Herb and Spice Merchants, Lauren Webster, Loom Towels, Carrol Russell, Fink, Tracy Dickason, Pass A Ball, Avi Amesbury, Ainslie Walker and Pendolino Olive Oils.
Keep in mind that there will also be beautiful gift boxes for your Christmas gifting, and you'll also be able to create your own expensive hamper from the broad choice of products available at the market.
The Loft Christmas Market will run every day between December 7 and January 31, except between December 23 and January 4, when it will be closed for Christmas. It'll be open Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 10am to 5.30pm, Thursday and Friday from 10am to 7pm, Saturday from 10am to 5pm and Sunday from 11am to 4pm.
