BrisStyle's first eco market goes off with a bang!

BrisStyle's first Indie Eco Market went off with a bang on Saturday!

Melanie from Kimono Reincarnate

Our BrisStylers pulled out their very best eco wares including loads of new and exciting products using recycled, re-purposed, sustainable, vintage and organic goodness!

Sam from Jetta's Nest

Ethical consumers feasted on Hellhound Hot Dogs, warmed up with hot coffee from the good people of Xpresso Coffee, enjoyed the pleasures of retail therapy with an eco edge and were inspired by the salvaged materials of Reverse Garbage all while bopping along to singing legend Tim Jackman.

Knitting for Brisbane's Needy drew a constant flow of interested peeps to their stall and with the combined efforts of all the BrisStylers who donated their gorgeous wares to the charity raffle we raised $342 for this well-deserved charity.

Chris from Little Chrissy

A very big thank you to our BiECO supporters Kelley and Ben of Peppermint magazine who provided a cosy little corner stall where shoppers could wind down and continue their eco journey through the pages of Peppermint.

Jade from Beckybean

Hi BrisStyle peoples! I just wanted to publicly thank you for letting my know I won one of the raffle prizes! I seem to be having a crazy winning streak of late with lovely handmade goodies, so this was the icing on the cake!

I'll be blogging all about my goodies when they arrive - thanks again!
