Supporting Handmade!

I've recently bought a few handmade pieces of lovely and I thought I'd share them here with you. It's so important to support handmade, don't you think?
I went along to the lovely Northern Regards Market in Northcote last weekend and bought these cute pieces from Lil Wise Owl. www.madeit.com.au/littlewiseowl 

This dress is made by my sis in law (and Hundreds and Thousands zine co creator) Taz. She makes handmade pieces and sells them on her online store www.butterandbuntings.storenvy.com ...she also has a stall at the Fitzroy Market this coming Saturday the 17th!!
Aren't these handmade brooches great!!?

I literally stumbled across the most fantastic little market a few weekends back. Everything was handmade, and everything sold was to raise money for the ASRC (Asylum Seeker Resource Centre.) I have since done a bit of research and discovered that the market was put on by a community of craft activists (woohoo!) called "Creating a Welcome." I totally think you should go visit their blog! www.creatingawelcome.blogspot.com 

Have you discovered any great local handmade crafters recently?
