I went to the Handmade Market Canberra at National Convention Centre last Saturday. I have heard about Handmade Market many times, seen the ads in magazines, but during my one year living in Canberra, I have never been there. So I’m glad this time I did.

Unfortunately, as soon as I took out my iPhone to snap a picture, one of the stallholder approached me and prevent me from taking pictures because I’m not from the Media. Disappointing, but understandable.

However, that doesn’t stop me from posting about my favorite shops! So here are three of my favorite shops at the Handmade Market:

Paper Elephant at Handmade Market Canberra via Design is Yay!

Paper Elephant is a Letterpress Printing company based in Blue Mountain. They offer affordable letterpress printing for your events and personal stationery needs.

I bought the girl with the balloon and hobo man cards which are illustrated by NSW illustrator, Rosa Agostino.

LaDeDah Kids at Handmade Market Canberra via Design is Yay!

I’m not a kid and I have no kids, but I love Ladedah Kids crochet softies! Go to their website for more adorable crochet goodies such as dolls, pram toys, rattles, floor mats and many more.

Damn It Maggie at Handmade Market Canberra via Design is Yay!

Damn it, Maggie ‘s stall at the Handmade Market was super eye catching. All of their goodies are blue, red and white themed, and so retro! Now this is what we call shop with characteristic!

Stay tune for the second part of my favorite shops at Handmade Market Canberra!

  • Boo to no pictures! I love people taking pics of my things – I love the idea of others having a go at trying it themselves or being inspired by my work.

    Thank you so much for including me in part 2 (next post) – I’m so glad you enjoyed the market… hope to see you back for the June edition, xxx

      thank you for stopping by :) I love your shop!
      Fortunately Handmade Market has told me that they might give me a media pass next time so that I’ll be able to take pictures :) I’ll definitely be in the June edition. See you there!
