BNE Design showcases some of Brisbane's leading designers with an open-air market in Reddacliff Place, in the heart of the Brisbane CBD. Just in time for Christmas shopping, this twilight market celebrates bespoke gifts by Brisbane makers. The unique collection has been curated by the good folk at the Museum of Brisbane (and my regular readers know how much I love those peeps at MoB). You will find an impressive array of gorgeous homewares and decor, fashion, ceramics, jewellery, stationery and much more.
You will be able to buy all your Christmas gifts in one place or something special for yourself (but only if you've been nice, not naughty). Why don't you make a night of it and enjoy a bite to eat and listen to live music while you shop for that special hard to find pressie. You will have plenty to chose from at this Christmas twilight market features as there will be over 25 local stallholders.
Stalls include jewellery by Bianca Mavrick, Chloe Waddell and C & K & V, to name just a few. You can also pick up pretty porcelain tableware by Blue House Porcelain, wheel-thrown ceramics by Ever Ceramics, and a unique selection of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander pieces from Blaklash. There is also clothing and accessories from Bambambu, Gloria Dulcie and Oxlade and Heart, and Bee One Third who specialise in honey products including honeycomb, bee pollen and beeswax. Some of my favourite stallholders include Bianca Mavrick, Rose Jensen-Holm, Shannon Garson, Busy Head and Bee One Third, among others.

Bianca Mavrick Jewellery is oh so original and luxe. It combines an arts-and-crafts aesthetic with her signature industrial finishes. Her distinct pieces are all crafted in her studio here in Brisbane. She works with a combination of precious and everyday materials to create a unique collection. Think minimalist form with maximalist impact. If you want to buy me a Christmas pressie, you won't go wrong with a stunning item from Bianca.
Reddacliff Pace is at 266 George Street in the city, adjacent to the Brisbane City Library. You'll recognise the vegetable steamer sculptures in Reddacliff Place by Donna Marcus, from my Weekend Notes profile.
