handmade find friday! (bowerbird bazaar)

back for another installment of handmade find friday! well… i must confess, it’s saturday here – but considering over 50% of you readers reside in the US – it’s still friday for most of you.  i conciously held this week’s post off a bit because i wanted to highlight this amazing handmade fair that only happens a few times a year here in sunny ol’ Adelaide.

the bowerbird bazaar brings in fashion, jewelry and all different types of craft designers from around Australia for 3 days of indulgence in the the name of handmade. the event has gotten so big over the past couple of years that the local au etsy team makes the trek down for the event (where they even offer etsy shop consultations). though only about a 1/3 of the size, it’s very reminiscent of Chicago’s renegade craft fair (now a worldwide affair) – great shopping, great food, great fun.

    I love handmade craft bazaars like that! Pity I haven’t had the time to visit any for years and years and years….
