BrisStyle Indie Designers Market: It's a Wrap!

Despite the midday downpour shoppers were out and about on Saturday morning for BrisStyle's Christmas Indie Designers Market at Hamilton.

Dedicated handmade BrisStyle fans came from far and wide to nab themselves some of the HOTtest , if not slightly dampest. handmade Christmas gifts in town!

As the rain came down the every one's Christmas spirits remained high and each person coming into the market was armed with everything they needed to shop rain, hail or shine. Umbrella's popped up, shoes came off, in some cases gumboots came on, prams were decked out in their wet weather gear and people were hopping from shop to shop gathering their Christmas gifts.

Teneale from Wicked Child Designs, an avid shopper walking towards {a creature strange's} stall , Kellie Christie and Sybella's stall kept smiling through the deluge.

It was admirable the camaraderie and genuine care that each stallholder took with their customers as well as their fellow BrisStylette's to ensure that they were safe and sound throughout the day.

The Stallholders inside turned on their Christmas cheer with a warm welcome with everyone who came inside to shelter. Special bargains were afoot as well many gifts with purchase and no attention to detail was spared.

So a big thank you to all those handmade loving souls who came along and kicked up their gumbooted heels despite the rain!
