The Big Design Market, Melbourne

 

Well today Renee and I braved the crazy Melbourne weather and ventured out to The Big Design Market, held at the Royal Exhibition Building in Carlton.

Why were we crazy enough to go out in the weather? Simply put, I would love to have a stand there next year. It’s a 2018 goal for me and I wanted to see the similarities between The Big Design Market and the Finders Keepers Market, I was very surprised to see just how different the atmosphere is.

I took along one of my mugs, the Platypus, to see how it fitted in – personally I think it looks right at home!

As a Designer, I love being able to meet other Designer’s and also see what everyone is doing. We really are a creative bunch of people here in Melbourne! I purchased a lovely pair of earrings from a new and upcoming brand called Middle Child and Renee purchased a fun bracelet (as pictured).

LuxBite had their amazing treats on display, so I picked up a couple of Christmas themed tarts. LuxBite are an amazing Melbourne brand with their main shop located in South Yarra. Does the name sound familiar? Well, you may have seen their “Lolly Bag Cake” on MasterChef a few years back!

We also managed to pick up some amazing Christmas gifts, so safe to say our Christmas shopping is nearly completed which is perfect as we have a big few weeks ahead of us at Suki McMaster in the lead up to Christmas!

After a big morning at The Big Design Market, we headed to lunch at Old Town on Elizabeth Street, before a stop at the Kyo Tea House for some dessert! This little gem is located in The Emporium. We shared a dessert plate consisting of Matcha cake, Matcha ice cream, Cheesecake. It was so good, the perfect way to end the week!
