Celebrate Christmas, the BrisStyle way!

If you are a budding ethical consumer who is looking for gifts that are unique, well-made, with a little soul, and a lotta style, then The 2008 BrisStyle Christmas Market in Hamilton is the place to Shop.

Find all these goods and more at the BrisStyle Christmas Market

The Historic Town Hall in Hamilton creates the perfect environment for this boutique event. Ample Street parking & easy access via the Rivercat, the hall has wheelchair and pram access as well as plenty of shade.

The gourmet food stall in the leafy courtyard is catering for the Brisbane summer with cool drinks and traditional Christmas treats.

Meander through the stalls of the distinctive and the fresh, chat to the makers and learn about them, and their wares, while the soothing sounds of the acoustic entertainment kindles your Christmas Spirit.

You’ll find something very different here. Like most sellers on etsy.com, the BrisStyle designers take great pride in adding that little extra for their customers. Whether it’s beautiful packaging, personal gift wrapping, little cards, or extra gifts, it’s sure to be something that touches the heart.

This Christmas the artists and designers of BrisStyle will also give their support to various charities with the hope that through your gift giving, you and they can make even a small difference to someone’s life.

So embrace the BrisStyle enthusiasm, support your local community and shop ethically this Christmas.

Vintage Visions said...

Hi there at Brisstyle

Great blog site. Miriam from Bubba Chenille introduced me to the site.
I have recently signed up to sell on etsy for my handcrafted range Vintage Visions.


So I would love to hear your comments and experience about selling on etsy so far! I'll keep up to date with your blog and upcoming events.

I will be joining in the Nov Handmade expo so good to see you all out there celebrating the beauty of hand made and crafted items!

PS thanks Miriam for the details

Hi Helen and Bec. What a great blog you have created and a fantastic idea for your Christmas Market. Are you still looking for stallholders? I'm not selling on etsy yet but I live in Brisbane and handmake gifts and accessories for girls (mostly) ie. handbags, softies, craft aprons, cushions, wall art etc. My blog address is www.littledivacraft.blogspot.com if you want to take a look. Thanks. Christine

MrsDesperate said...

I am a Brisbane girl, but now living in Auckland. How I wish I could jump the ditch and buy up big at this market! Makes me homesick ...

rubyredstudios said...

Hi lovely Blogettes,

Thanks so much for all your gorgeous comments and all your enthusiasm for the Markets.

Am just passing through tonight but just wanted to let Bronie, Christine and Michelle know that I will definitely be in contact by the end of the week when I'm back in my "Market" office x x.

One day the crafting fairy will shine her light upon us all to be able to spend all day crafting away! (with endless computer time as a bonus too me thinks)

Til then Happy crafting - everyone's sites are looking fabulous!

Hi Brisstyle, I'm a local Brisbane designer and I'm currently in the process of setting up my etsy shop! Are you still looking for stallholders? I would love to be a part of the Market if you are :) Thanks, Zoe

Hi Zoe ,

Thanks so much for your comment. Great to hear you are about to set up an etsy store and would love to hear more about your designs.

If you would like to pop an email over to
with your details and a little bit about your designs that would be great.

I'l be back in my "virtual" market office tomorrow and will have a look to see what sites are left.

Once again thanks so much and I look forward to hearing from you soon.
