If you missed the Bowerbird Bazaar back in November, I’m here to bring you the great news that you don’t have to wait a whole year for the next one. The amazing designer market is returning next weekend, from the 1st to the 3rd of May at the Adelaide Showgrounds.
I attended the markets last year and safe to say, it’s well worth the trip. There’s clothes (men’s, women’s and kids), jewellery, homewares, art, and much much muuuuch more. The Bowerbird Bazaar is all about showcasing Australian designers and artists who have a passion for their work, and bring innovative, creative and high-quality pieces of art to the table. While it’s a fantastic event for everyone like me to score some amazing products, it’s also a great opportunity for artists and makers to show their work for potential buyers. Many of stalls you’ll see don’t have retail spaces, but mainly sell their work on their websites or others like Etsy, or at markets just like this. Often, this means the products you’ll see are one of a kinds, so it’s a great opportunity to get some awesome gifts, or something special for yourself.
Haven’t gotten anything for Mum for Mother’s Day yet? Yeah that’s happening. What better way to show her you love her than taking her to the Bowerbird Bazaar to stroll around, have some great food, enjoy some entertainment, and give her the opportunity to pick her own present? Sorted!
If you attended the markets in November, there’ll be a lot of the same stalls returning, but there will also be a bunch of new ones you definitely have to check out. Here’s a list of all the stall holders, but we have gathered a few of the highlights below (or is it my personal wish list, we’ll never know.)
