“It’s the thought that counts.” There’s a reason you’ve heard it 90 jillion times. The best gifts are those made lovingly, by hand.
But that doesn’t mean they can’t be stylish too. And if your own do-it-yourself skills are limited to your Nespresso machine, don’t fret. There’s a new pop-up marketplace where over 40 skilled local artisans do the craftwork for you.
Etsy.com is partnering with our very own David Jones to introduce a pop-up marketplace that has all your Christmas shopping covered. The holiday romance of digital-meets-real life will bring magical one-of-a-kind gifts for everyone on your Christmas list. Think luxe Merino textiles from Grace Wood Designs, dreamy prints from Billy and Scarlet, and eco-friendly accoutrements from Sydney’s Belinda Saville.
You can also see the action live via a series of maker demonstrations, or if you secretly love peely PVA fingers (hey, it’s a nostalgia thing), hone your crafting chops at a hands-on workshop. Dreamcatchers are totally the new cupcakes.
And what would a Christmas marketplace be without seasonal treats? There’s nothing to bolster your left brain like a hot spiced cider. Miss Chu, Mio Posto and Ruby & Rach are also on location to feed you mid-shop.
Entry is free. Register to guarantee access.
