Twilight wrap ... where's this made?

The BrisStyle Twilight Indie Market was a smash hit, even with the hoards of Brisbane peeps at Woodford for Splendour we had a good crowd. The ambient light was excellent so my lighting worries were soon abated. I forgot my camera so I have nicked a photo taken by Wicked Child!


Everything at the BrisStyle market is handmade locally, I love being a part of something like this. So many markets have stall holders flogging cheap imports. Our markets are real Brisbane craft, sold by Brisbane locals. I think the tourists that come by our markets appreciate a memento that's not made in Indonesia.

Handmade in Brisbane!


I did have one guy pick up of of my softie dolls and ask 'where's this made?' ... I said 'by me!' He seemed a bit surprised that it was handmade. He ended up buying it though!

Not made in China!


I got myself a gorgeous one-off cup from Spun Mud. It's a birthday present for a friend that drinks gallons of tea at work. I also scored a cute little Alice in Wonderland brooch from Hungry Designs.

Spun Mud ... cute as cup


This will be coming to work with me Monday!

Cool purchases Hayley. Wish I had time to shop that night. Good to see you had a great market.

Love reading your blog posts btw. They crack me up, which is what I truly need when I'm at work.

Oh, I LOVE the Alice In Wonderland brooch! How darling! Markets like these are so much fun! I made handmade cards for one last week; it was so exciting to see the creativity of the artists around me. Thank you for your warm birthday wish! It really made my day. :)

Always,
Anh.
