It's a pop-up bonanza
Christmas is coming, but pop-up shops have arrived in shopping centres, big and small.
Lilydale Marketplace
Market Place entrance.

The Lilydale Marketplace on Hutchinson Street has no fewer than eight pop-ups selling a huge range of items that would make great Christmas presents.

Most of the items for sale are not seen in permanent shops, so it makes it easy to buy something unusual, different and novel for your loved ones.

More pop-ups.

Ice Towel. As the name implies, ice towels are their main stock in trade.

A large range of other cooling products are available, such as insulated carry bags, some of which look like colourful designer handbags.

Rasling Raw. Specialising in homemade soap, hair and skin care. A huge range of products to care for your body and hair.

Books and salt lamps.

Sand & Stone Creations. You can look at these products for a long time, especially the cute ones.

sand & stone items
Service with a smile.

From the cute department.

I can imagine them as an interior decoration or a garden ornament. They would make the garden gnomes jealous!

angry figurines
I think they would frighten the gnomes.

The metal plaques are ideal to cover a bare wall inside or outside, without being dominant.

Buckle O'Bills. Bill sells real leather goods. Belts, hats and braces.

Belts and buckles.

colourful belts.
How colourful are these.

Add to this is a huge range of buckles, and country & western jewellery. The name certainly has a country & western ring to it.

Decorate your belt.

5 Toes. Strange name for a pop-up until you notice they sell socks and colourful ones at that.

Colourful socks.

Very colourful socks.

For your other end, a large range of hats await your selection, for both him and her.

A hat for any head.

YA Collections. Jewellery is the major merchandise sold in this pop-up. Many colourful pieces and very reasonable prices.

Many to choose from.

A small selection of colourful dresses are displayed as are many carry bags.

Dresses & carry bags.

Gift Girl Imports. Their business card reads, home, garden, giftware & mancave. That just about describes all their merchandise.

It's a large pop-up.

Turn these on to brighten up your day.

They have a huge range of products with many, more than suitable for a man cave.

A mohawk for the hairless.

These pop-up shops add an interesting mix of merchandise, without competing, product wise, with the permanent shops.

After you do your normal shop, put your shopping in the car and go back to peruse these pop-ups. Even if you don't buy anything, a pleasant half an hour can be spent window shopping, without windows.
