HANDMADE is back in demand as designers deliver beautifully crafted pieces and quirky designs, a range of which will go on sale at Coffs Made with Love Markets next Sunday August 28th.
“Gone are the days when handmade markets were all about crochet hangers, tea towels and cute baby clothes…the handmade has now reached a whole new level, and the people of Coffs Coast are enjoying it “said Alison Paul, organizer of Made with Love Markets.

“Looking back on the last two years, Covid has really revolutionized the local craft scene.
“We have merchants who are going back to basics, making anything and everything by hand, and customers love the timeless quality of handmade and really appreciate it,” Alison said.
Made with Love Markets take place this weekend – a week before Father’s Day.
Vendors say there will be plenty of gift ideas for men and manly.
“For example, for the man who has everything, a cast iron wall mounted bottle opener, with ocean themed resin on a wooden board – made by Creative Art by Bron,” Alison said.
“Then we have Mackie Traditional by Moonee – amazing handcrafted woodware, handmade knives and leather goods.”
Other gift ideas include beauty products for men, handmade in Bonville by Bee Bonny, such as beard balm, balm and shaving cream.
“And a new merchant that I’m very excited about – the Knicker Parlor.
“Handmade underwear in vintage-inspired designs, all handmade and all unique – made just down the highway in Bundagen.”
For the foodie dad, Bakarindi makes relishes, chutneys and sauces using traditional recipes as well as native bush spices and sauces.
“For die-hard NRL fans, Grafton’s B&L Creations Hand Sewn Towel Sets – you can’t go wrong,” said Alison.
There will be around 120 vendors at Made with Love Markets this Sunday August 28 from 9am to 2pm – and everything is made and handmade locally.
Located in the mid-level parking lot at Park Beach Plaza.
