After months of hard work sewing, painting, paper-crafting and jewellery-making, almost 50 BrisStylettes arrived at St Augustine's Church Hall, Hamilton in the early hours of the morning on Saturday 4 July to set up shop for the BrisStyle Indie Designers Market.

Ten minutes in and the masses were there ready to support handmade.
The outdoor stalls were hit first by the huge turnout followed closely by crowd jamming in the hall.

It was a beautiful Brisbane winter day, the wind dropped, the sun was shining, and Brisbanites enjoyed a day of shopping, acoustic music, strong coffee and the most divine little cupcakes from Tabitha's Place.

After the first hour the BrisStylettes were in awe as Brisbane shoppers embraced everything handmade and indie. Sales flowed till well after midday when the crowd slowed down and we were all finally able to take a deep breath, have a hot coffee... but alas not a cupcake in sight - completely sold out!!
