Why buy handmade?

There are many reasons why you would want to pop down and buy handmade products from our stallholders. Here are a few of them:


  • Each handmade piece of work is unique.

  • You’re supporting a small local business, and in turn, your local economy and community.

  • Customisation! You can connect with creatives to create a custom piece that combines both visions. 

  • You can’t beat the one-on-one customer service. 

  • All handmade products are made with love, care and thought.

  • You get high-quality items that are built to last, and not mass produced.


Come on down to our Winter Market to do your handmade shopping, for yourself and others. It's the best way to avoid the malls. You won't regret it.
