[ Ho Ho Ho ]
It is that time of the year, again, when frantic search begins for those special gifts. Similar to last year, I’ve gathered a few details about what’s going on around in terms of markets.
First up is Billycart Markets at Sandgate. This market is for those who are after gifts for children, for parents of young ones or those who are expecting. I can give you a little hint here, Kva Books & Albums – who made an amazing custom photo album for my niece – will be there! Don’t miss this opportunity to get something really special.
3pm till 7pm
Sacred Heart Primary School, 92 Brighton Road, Sandgate 4017
Next up is BrisStyle Indie Twilight Market, which is on the 14th of December. If you don’t feel like rushing in with gift shopping just yet, this one is a nice balance between too early and too late. BrisStyle is a collaboration of different Etsy sellers, so you can be sure there will plenty of handmade and vintage goodness at this market.
14th December, Friday
5pm till 9pm
King George Square in the City
Another interesting destination this year is West End Twilight Markets. If you don’t like the pressure of one-night-only markets then West End is where you should head to. You will find market stalls there every second and fourth Saturday of the month till end of December. And there are live performances as well!
24th November; 8th, 22nd December
4pm till 9pm
Reclaimed Hangar on the Corner of Wilson and Boundary St, West End
There are also plenty of twilight markets in the suburbs, so when you drive around pay attention to any banners near schools and churches.
And as always, for those not looking forward to spending time among crowds, online shopping is your answer.
