Hate paying for Aussie made goodies in American dollars - double check
Then you need to head on over to madeit. Lovers of handmade will rejoice at the abundance of gorgeous Australian made fashion, art, homewares, accessories, stationery, children and babies clothing and toys and much much more. Lots of our lovely retailers have a madeit store ......... Piper+Lily, Here We Go Loopy Lou, MoonMum and MooBee Tees spring to mind (I know there are many more but, forgive me, they are escaping me at the moment).
Shopping on madeit is a breeze and great way to support local designers & crafters, I have been shopping up a storm over there today. I am in desperate need of some fabulous new cushions to go with my fabulous new couch arriving the day after the market (!!) and I really wanted something different to the mass produced (and totally over priced) blandness I have been seeing in the shops recently. I love that I can purchase something unique and lovingly created with just a few clicks!
Sprinkled throughout this post is some goodies I am absolutely loving at the moment, I wish I could figure out where to hang some of these divine tissue paper Pom Poms at the market .........
If you are maker of lovely handmade goodies you should give some careful consideration opening up your own online madeit shop!
