The Big Design Market 2012


We are super excited for this weekend because it is the very first Big Design Market starting tomorrow. The guys behind it made this super ace film (which I heard was going to be on SBS!) which I think is well worth a look just to swoon over all the amazing products.

We have been busy bees getting everything ready including a really different way to display our products. I'm not sure how it is going to work because I'm not going to have a big wall of cards to hide behind, but I'm excited to see how it goes.

There is many many different people who will be taking part, as well as food and drink. They will have Gypsy Cider there and I had a glass the other night at the pub and it was delish. I normally don't like cider but this stuff was really good, probably because it is a little sweeter.

Here are all the details for the market:

Friday 7th Dec 10am–9pm
Saturday 8th Dec 10am–5pm

Here are some of my picks for Christmas:
For the tea fan in your life, these Earl and Lady Grey felt coasters are ideal.

For the gardener in your life, these jelly-esque hanging plant holders by Angus and Celeste would suit someone with a nice little outdoor garden space.

For the woman who likes colour, an Emily Green necklace.

For someone who still harks back to the '70s, a Retro Print Revival rocket lamp. 

For the bloke who wears boxers, 100% cotton boxers from The Artful Boxer. 

For the scientist in your life, these little lightboxes from Two Layers of Cells would be perfect.
