cosy bits and bobs from the bowerbird community
Adelaide’s raddest design market may be postponed, but you can still pick up a lovely thing or two from the crafty community.
If you’re a craft-loving Adelaidean, you may be a little sad to hear the city’s raddest design market, Bowerbird, won't be happening this month. With everything that's going on in the world, the Bowerbird team have decided to return to normal programming come November. Until then, there are still plenty of opportunities to support the market's crafty community. You may not be able to visit makers’ stalls, but you can still swing by the Bowerbird directory to find heaps of new talent. Or if you’re in need of some cosy bits and bobs for the house, keep scrolling for our pick.
