Christmas  Market Dream  For Shoppers
Last-minute Christmas shopping is a nightmare! Crowded shopping centers offering mass-produced items makes it stressful trying to find the right gifts.

Instead, imagine the peace and joy of casually wandering local markets, enjoying great food and entertainment as you discover unique gifts to delight everyone you love.

Redcliffe is fortunate to be home to two such Christmas market events – the Arts and Crafters' Market by Moreton Bay Arts Council Inc. and Handmade Redcliffe Boutique Christmas Market hosted by Love Handmade Markets.

The Arts and Crafters' market, to be held on the last Saturday in November, is the biggest annual platform for several non-profit groups, including the Redcliffe Potters, Redcliffe Art Society, 50 local makers and crafters and three performing artists.

Janice Charlish, president of Moreton Bay Arts Council Inc., said the art gallery and gift shop will also be open on the day, to welcome people from near and far.

“We have an emphasis on offerings being affordable, original, different and local”, Janice said.

Choose from an eclectic range of wares, including original paintings straight from the artist, garden-fresh herbs, home-baked delicacies, soft toys, kids fashion, eco-friendly products, pottery, soaps and more.

Don’t miss this opportunity to enjoy Christmas shopping while indulging in delicious food and family entertainment.

Handmade Redcliffe celebrates the gifting season, in mid-November, with 80 incredible stalls at Margate Beach.

Market founder and curator, Janmaree Lowe, said Love Handmade markets were synonymous with sourcing the unique and bespoke.

“Moreton Luxury Soy Candles, Trinkarts Studio, Crochet & String, Pattie Murray Ceramicist, Scouted Design and Redraku are just some of the stalls.”

“There will be something for everyone! We will entertain you with live music and great eats from food trucks,” Janmaree said.

Don’t leave your Christmas shopping to the last minute!  Shop at your regional markets and make everyone’s Christmas wonderful, including yours.
