Making Spaces Marketplace

Have you heard of the Making Spaces Marketplace yet?  It's a stunning handmade collective, tucked away in a little arcade at Parramatta.  Here is a bit about it from their website:

Making Spaces Marketplace is a creative initiative made possible through Pop Up Parramatta Arts NSW focused on injecting creative enterprise and creative infrastructure into unused buildings and spaces in Parramatta CBD.

The initiative sees Parramatta City Council and building owners matching empty spaces to local designers and artists to showcase their talents, with the intent of rejuvenating and enlivening otherwise ‘dead retail areas’ of the region. 

Making Spaces Marketplace is a boutique style space providing an ever changing array of handmade goods for sale. Lovers of handmade now have a dedicated destination for delighting over locally made products. Designers are offered a unique opportunity within this creative enterprise to display and sell their own wares in the heart of the Parramatta CBD.

I'm so pleased to announce that a selected range of IndigoElephant stock will be available through Making Spaces Marketplace in Parramatta!  I was there this morning taking stock over and couldn't help but start some gift shopping.  I was also convinced, by my littlest, to buy him a magnetic felt fishing set from Creative Wishes.  It has been a most popular purchase,  being in high demand from both boys all afternoon... I'm hoping they'll now give up on using Daddy's ties as fishing lines to reel each other up off the floor!  You can find the shop at Greenway Plaza, 222 Church St, Parramatta.  The opening hours are Wed - Fri 10 - 4 and Sat 9:30 - 3:30.
