HANDMADE is in demand again as creators create beautifully crafted pieces and original designs, a number of which will go on sale at the Coffs Made with Love Markets next Sunday 28th August.
“Gone are the days when craft markets were all about crocheted hangers, tea towels and cute baby clothes… Crafting has now reached a whole new level and Coffs Coast locals are loving it,” said Alison Paul, organizer of Made with Love Markets .

“Looking back over the past two years, Covid has really revolutionized the local handmade scene.
“We have stand owners who are going back to basics and making everything and everything by hand, and customers love and really appreciate the timeless quality of the handwork,” Alison said.
The Made with Love Market takes place this weekend – a week before Father’s Day.
Sellers say there will be plenty of gift ideas for men and women.
“For example, for the man who has everything, a wall-mounted bottle opener made of cast iron with resin featuring an ocean design on a wooden panel – made by Creative Art by Bron,” Alison said.
“Then we have Mackie Traditional by Moonee – amazing handcrafted wooden items, handcrafted knives and leather goods.”
Other gift ideas include men’s beauty products, handmade in Bonville by Bee Bonny, such as beard balm, salve and shaving cream.
“And a new stand holder that I’m really looking forward to – the Knicker Parlor.
“Handcrafted underwear in vintage-inspired designs, all handmade and all unique – made right off the highway near Bundagen.”
For the foodie dad, Bakarindi makes relishes, chutney and sauces using traditional recipes and native bush spices and sauces.
“For the die-hard NRL fans, hand-sewn towel sets from B&L Creations of Grafton – you can’t go wrong,” said Alison.
This Sunday, August 28, from 9am to 2pm, there will be around 120 stallholders at the Made with Love Markets – and everything is locally made and handcrafted.
Located in the mid-level parking lot at Park Beach Plaza.
