Event:
Unique Locally Handcrafted and Handmade Christmas Gift Ideas
Christmas will be coming early this year with The Roleystone Twilight Christmas Market and Concert promising an awesome chance to get your Christmas list sorted.

The little village of Roleystone located high in the Hills, 30 kilometres south east of Perth, invites you to experience twilight in a unique location as you wander among the stalls.


100 handpicked stalls ensure something for all tastes with a great range of excellent quality home grown and handmade products. Roleystone Markets maintain variety by only allowing a few of the same types of vendors to trade on the day.

The focus is on handmade, handcrafted arts crafts and produce. Food vendors and Not For Profit groups providing activities ensure Roleystone Christmas Market is a great family day out.




The Roleystone Musicians Club will host the Christmas Concert, with a range of Choirs and Dance Groups to round out the entertainment into the evening.


The Roleystone Men's Community Shed will have some great products demonstrating the fruits of their activities, with ideas for gifts or for your own home.

If you are a 'bloke', why not enquire about becoming a part of 'blokes helping blokes'. They are always looking for new members and welcome men of all ages (over 16 at present). To join, please see their "How to Join" website, call Phil: 0429 688 844 or email secretary@roleymensshed.com.au and be part of something extremely fulfilling.

Visit the Roleystone Community Garden stall for some great gift ideas. To become a member you do not need any experience or knowledge, just an enjoyment of gardening. Everyone learns from each other and a qualified Horticulturist is in the group. The gardening is not heavy work, friendly and all produce is shared. Check out their website for more in information (and maybe rent a plot). All ages are welcome.

The kids are well catered for with a jumping castle, face painting and the animal farm.


And our special guest for the evening will be dropping by to say hello to everyone! No prizes for guessing who.

There is a diverse range of handcrafted arts and crafts and a local fruit and veg vendor providing fresh produce. From woodwork chopping boards to glass platters, bowls and light panels all made in local studios around Armadale, to local pottery, cards and handbags.




Roleystone Christmas Market will definitely be the place to purchase those remaining Christmas gifts for family and friends. How unique would it be to gift something handcrafted locally rather than mass-produced overseas.
