Bowerbird Bazaar 2

The biannual Bowerbird Bazaar handmade market was held on Mother’s Day weekend here in Adelaide.

(Yes, I know Mother’s Day was some time ago so apologies for the ridiculous lateness of this recap but I couldn’t fit it in earlier due to Birthday Month, sorry!)

As usual, it was packed with all the jewellery, prints, ceramics and decor you can handle from some of the country’s most creative indie businesses.

The letterpress goodness from Bespoke Press was the highlight of the day for me. I love their vintage-inspired designs and their gorgeous stall display.

I’ve been a big fan of Messagemark‘s organic desgins and retro colour palette for some time so it was great to have the opportunity to meet Kyrie Kohlhagen, the lovely lady behind it.

I’ve had the pleasure to have met the multi-talented Ali Rodda several times through mutual friends. I knew she was working on a new jewellery line so I was excited to finally see it. The result? Indigo Fawn, a collection of paper-cut style designs laser cut from acrylic.

(The cuties at the top right may or may not have found their way home with me.)
