Adelaide’s Bowerbird Bazaar brought first-time stall holders and keen design hunters together in the quest for quality and original products earlier this month.
Almost 80 stalls of textiles, glassware, gift cards, bags, furniture and food featured in the three-day event.
Co-curator Rebekah Cicero said the bi-annual event gave designers a chance to receive feedback on their products from the public and fellow stall holders.
“Stall holders love it and feel the event has such a great atmosphere and have commented on how professionally run it is,” she said.
The event gave first-time stall holder Carol Perkins from fiftyonehundred, who moved to Adelaide from the UK in February, an opportunity to test the Australian market.
“I wasn’t sure how people would react to my sense of humour,” she said.
“I had a great first reaction – I sold out of my Adelaide Questions and I’m now starting an online shop.”
Next year’s events are on May 6-8 and November 25-27. Applications open in mid February. For more information visit the website.
