BrisStyle Indie Eco Market Tomorrow!

Hey eco-lovers, this is just a friendly reminder that the BrisStyle indie Eco Market will be on this Saturday 6 November 2010 at St Augustine's, Racecourse Road, Hamilton from 9am-2pm.

Our collective fingers and toes and crossed for a bright sunshiney day but if we are blessed with more life-giving rain we'll still be on, high and dry inside the hall!

Showcasing the work of local indie designers, you'll find an inspiring array of homewares, bags, jewellery, accessories, art and loads more, all handmade from upcycled, pre-loved and salvaged materials. With a sprinkling of vintage treasure available too, this is one market not to be missed!

Proud supporters of the BrisStyle indie Eco Market, Peppermint and Reverse Garbage will be along for the day so make sure to pay them a visit for subscriptions, magazines and salvaged craft goodies galore!!

All proceeds from our famous handmade raffle will be donated to a very worthy cause, Peninsula Animal Aid.

The PAA team will be onsite on the day with loads of information and advice highlighting the joy of giving a 'forever home' to the abandoned and surrendered cats and dogs they lovingly care for. Make sure to check out our blog and the PAA website for more information on who's up for adoption!

Tickets are $2 each or 3 for $5 and will be available from the BrisStyle inc. Promo Stand.

While you're at the Promo Stand, make sure to tell us how you heard about the markets to get your very own 2 for 1 voucher to the latest Hopscotch indie film, “Gainsbourg” and a free voucher to visit Ten Toes Yoga in Hamilton.

There'll be plenty of great workshops on offer with Brisbane artist Chrys Zantis bringing along her interactive knitting installation, Landscape of Resilience. Needles, hooks, thread, fabric, and wool of all colours will be available to use on the day or you can bring something along to add that you've prepared earlier!

If softies are more your cup of 'green' tea, the Wicked Child Designs stall will be the place to be for a Softies Workshop! Book now and secure your $15 seat (all materials provided) at

There'll be 'Kool Candle' making at the Spoil and Indulge Natural stall. Make your own colourful fragrance candle in a jar for a special price of $5 each. This is great workshop for the kids too as the candles are made 'heat-free' using ECO friendly coloured wax beads and ribbons and stickers to decorate the jars.

You can also try your hand at Kumihimo braiding with workshops being run throughout the day by eco dyer and designer, Trish from Trishalan Designs.

Bring in the kids' (or your own) broken bits of crayon and trade them in for some recycled ones at Nan's Garden. Got a green thumb? Head on over to the Beckybean stall where'll you can get your very own handmade Flower Seed Bombs offered free with every purchase!

New indie craft zine 'bespoke' will be making its big debut on the day and make sure not to miss the kimono fabric sale of the year hosted by Mel from Kimono Reincarnate!

For all the recycled chic fashionistas make sure to pay a visit to ruby red studios and wade your way through the amazing stash of vintage swish!!

Grab yourself a coffee from our friends at Xpresso Coffee and enjoy the classic hits of Music 4 U and ethereal sounds of Gloria the Harp.

There's also heaps of fantastic restaurants and cafe's along the Racecourse Road Precinct so come along, bring the family and make a real day of it!!
