Burnside Christmas Night Market

Home > Adelaide > Markets | Libraries | Gifts | Shopping
A feel good night out
This year on December 11, The Burnside Library is holding its first ever Christmas Market. It will be a small and intimate affair with only 25 stallholders however hopefully this will be the beginning of a new and wonderful twilight tradition in the Eastern Suburbs. There will be activities and crafts for the children, Christmas Carols, food and coffee and of course unique and interesting handmade items for you to check out.

This market is showcasing local art and craft and helping a few other groups in their upcoming volunteer projects.

Lynlee Moses is a registered nurse who is part of "Nurses in Action". She is heading to Kenya in August to volunteer and is selling handmade South Australian and African Christmas decorations in order to help get her there.

A group of Norwood High School students participating in a World Challenge in Vietnam and Cambodia are also setting up a stall selling homemade soap, cards, children's handmade clothing and other items. They are due to leave in November 2015 where they will spend some time trekking and experiencing Vietnam before volunteering in a Cambodian community.

Gorgeous soy candles from Solaz will be on offer. These candles are made in the Adelaide hills and have all been created with a spirtual purpose.

Paul Hester will have his galvanising art on hand. He creates unique pieces from rusty recyled galvanised roofing ironing and the Australasian Porcelain Art Teachers of SA will have a vast display of their works available as they gear up for a big year in 2015 which will see Adelaide host the 15th Australasian Convention and Exhibition. Porcelain painting involves painting with powdered metal pigments and firing in extremely hot kilns.

There are a couple jewellry makers worth noting as well; Beads by D-sign creator Judy has lovely beaded jewellry at incredibly affordable prices and is happy to make custom designs as well.
Another artist has created completely different jewellery using glass, metal, opals and other materials and has incorporated Australian life in many of her pieces.

The Market starts at 4 and wraps up at 8:30. Admission is free. Come by. Take a look, listen to a carol, buy a few gifts and enjoy the intimate and festive ambiance!
