Around this time of year, Melbourne bursts at the seams with markets and pop-up retail spaces, giving us ample opportunity to purchase gifts for others (or for ourselves!) direct from the makers themselves. How lucky are we?
Here are a couple of upcoming retail events run by our members, that will guarantee a beautiful shopping experience in stark opposition to brightly-lit suburban shopping malls, and of course put a smile on the gift recipient's dial :)
Some of the clever tenants who are working at the Convent have banded together to provide a unique retail experience.
The large space in the Sacred Heart courtyard (where the nuns used to do the ironing!), is now a funky and enticing shop that is filled with different products; from ceramics to books to clothes and paintings.
The artists involved will be in the shop at different times so you can talk to them about how they make their work. With any purchase made, the entire amount will go to the artist making the artists' professions more sustainable.
Open 11am until 8pm Thursday-Sunday through November and December
