Day: May 8
Time: 10am 5pm
Where: Federation Square
Cost: Free to browse, costs involved to buy.

Admission is free to browse a variety of stalls selling quirky and interesting designs from around one hundred local Australian creatives.

Ceramics, socks, printed t-shirts, jewellery, fashion and homewares converge on Federation Square to sell a variety of limited edition and handcrafted items direct-to-the-public. The event only happens twice every year.

Honey and Heid, A Thoughtful Spot, Truso andThe Original Murse Co. sell vintage, handcrafted and recreated purses and leather handbags.

InSync Design, Katrina Barden, Lott Studio, Maekar, and Manuela Agreja Jewels are a few local Australian names selling a range of hypoallergenic, glimmery and shimmery jewelry.

Hamb, Jacob and Esau, Naomi Murrell, and Millicent Elizabeth are just a couple of local Australian clothing designers selling clothes direct to the public.

For shoes, check-out a range of sizes to suit everybody from the young to the not-so-young and every-body in between, with local designers Rollie Nation and Belmore Nation to name just two.

Top it all off with a wheatbag from Wheatbags Love and maybe a new bedspread from Feliz Home and you are set for a snuggly, cozy wintry season.

These are just a few local designers to get amped and in the mood for a spending spree or just browse the brilliant array of creative talent Australia has.

Law Week
Date: May 11 17
Time: 6:30 8pm
Where: Various locations throughout Melbourne

Every year the Law Institute of Victoria invites the public to attend a variety of events across Melbourne.

Entertainment, discussion and debates, information, tours and exhibitions are held during one week of May only.

This is your chance to ask those niggling legal questions from a trained professional at one of the free Legal Health Check Pop-Up centers being held across Melbourne.

Or take a free underground tour of the secret dungeon beneath the Supreme Court of Victoria.

For about $30 the Law Institute will entertain you on a guided tour of the Chinatown Murders or perhaps you would prefer the Carlton Murders? What about a ghost tour in the Geelong Gaol?

For those more interested in the Discussions and Debates, there are mock trials, discussions about the environment in law, youth law, and even a mock coronial inquest to name a few.

Some events are free, some average around $20-$30 but check the website for a complete list.
