Now CLOSED but you can still buy some Handmade Highstreet things at the nearby Antique Shop.

Help others while treating yourself
Handmade Highstreet is a shop with heart. They sell an eclectic range of handcrafted items from local crafts people, artists and other artisans. They are also very Community minded and always seem to have some scheme going that will benefit a charity.

You'll find Handmade Highstreet in the Annerley Shopping Centre just after Annerley Library where Annerley Rd and Ipswich Roads converge at the Muddy Farmer Hotel.

Recently they had their annual Pillowcase Drive for Pillowcases for Oncolocgy Kids.

Currently they are collecting knitted squares to be made up into blankets and donated to the Born Free Shelter in New Farm which houses homeless indigenous youth. Any square, any size - all will be used.Get your entries in before 31st July. Think outside the box and knit a square or any size (but the larger the better)

The 'prettiest' square will win a $50 voucher to Handmade Highstreet. But manly colours will be required too.

They are open 6 days a week. Wander in and have a browse. Even if you don't plan to buy anything you will see the range of things that may make great presents for that 'hard to buy for' friend.
