With so much success these past few weekends on my market trail, I've broken down my finds into 2 x blog posts. Here's the second instalment - handcrafted gift ideas galore: With a tag line of "why should tea get all the glory?" are this range of eco friendly, hand-painted tea towels. Except they're called Coffee Towels!
Of course I bought the orange and pink one ;) Made in Sydney by local Mum of 4 in her home studio, the colours on these tea (coffee) towels stay vibrant after many washes.
I brought home a couple of exquisite Yalu
perfume oils, expertly hand-crafted by naturopathic healer Rhiannon from the Finders Keepers Market. These oils have the most intoxicating smell, and while you can rub the oil all over the body for a divine scent, try adding a few drops to a bath or rubbing a little through the ends of your hair for lush smelling locks!
Lovely new Mum Sylvia is making a comeback in making! Her stylish jewellery pieces sell under the name Oria Studio
and are timeless in their appeal. Earrings & necklaces in earthy colour tones, but not without a touch of glam. I'm the proud owner of a few Oria creations and would love to offer some in my store soon too. But how to choose which ones?!
If you like vivid colour and modernist style, and are searching for something for your walls - or even tea towels that are stylish enough to frame - look no further than Emilio Frank Design.
Shana is the artist & designer of these bold and colourful prints. She also has a soft spot for the Dachshund and has a range of tea towels celebrating their cute-ness and their cult like status!
