New boutique market taking off at Bangalow
BANGALOW Heritage Museum and Tearooms provided the perfect setting for what is becoming known as a boutique market with a difference.
Thirty-five North Coast artisans converged on the picturesque site to showcase an eclectic range of handcrafted fashion, furniture, food, electronics and art at the Bangalow Designers' Market.
"This is the second designers' market in Bangalow and each time the interest and community support build," said co-founder Meredith Barry.
"Designers not only get the opportunity to sell their products, but also network with other designers, meet customers and connect with retail buyers."
Ewingsdale clothing designer Kelly Bolton said she enjoyed the family-friendly atmosphere.
"I wasn't sure what to expect as it was the first time I've had a market stall," she said.
"There was a beautiful atmosphere and, despite the fact it's tucked away in Bangalow, a lot of people came to have a look."
In a new addition, Forage and Graze turned the tearoom into a pop-up café, while Moonshine Coffee introduced customers to its locally grown blend.
