Go on a shopping spree
The serene Royal Exhibition Building will get a make-over for 3 days, from 6th December. As suggested in the name, it is the biggest market of its kind that brings together Australian and international designers. This market comes at a time when everyone is on a shopping spree. After a roaring success in 2012, coming event promises to be bigger and better.

This market will display works of some 200 odd designers from Australia and New Zealand, whose wares are otherwise limited to their studios or localities. It is not only a great opportunity for shopaholics to get introduced to these pieces of art but also gives a huge platform for the designers. And if you are looking for exclusive Christmas gifts, this event is made specially for you! There will be a huge array of distinctive items full of originality and creativity in unique designs. From clothes to shoes and jewellery to accessories will be available for all age groups. Dinner wares, linen, ornamental plants, books, decorative pieces of furniture and many more options to beautify your home. And lots of gifting options, so don't forget to get your Christmas guest list so you can go on ticking as you fill your shopping bag.

Another hot favourite last year were the limited edition showbags. So they are here this time too. With a price of $25 and value of $100, these bags contain goodies from designer stalls. Make sure you reach early to grab yours. Check out the showbags here

In addition to shopping, there are many activities for kids and adults. Learn to weave a star with famous weaver Maryann Talia Pau or attend hand-made leather bag demonstration or make interesting handicrafts. For kids, a dedicated play space has been made as also crayons and colouring material will be provided, making a fun-day for them.

Shoppers can satisfy their grumbling tummies with Vietnamese paper rolls, tacos, burgers, sandwiches and especially the triple chocolate brownies. Tea, coffee and cider will also be available.

This market will indeed be like a family picnic place. Get your kids, friends and family, there is entertainment for everyone. A spacious place, there is enough room to shop leisurely, chat with friends and enjoy the weekend.
