BlackBird Markets

Rebecca invited me along to the Black Bird Market, a kitsch little indoor vintage/indie market where home-made and new found treasures are sold.

First off isn’t she the prettiest ever =D

Becky modeled for me in Ghost Story and Summer Beaches and she is a lovely photographer herself. At the market we had a stroll among the tables all filled with gorgeous little things. Have a look:-

Way Cuter Than A Button presents charming jewelery remade from buttons and other knick knacks. I adore their rings, each are different and unique and I was especially drawn to a little wooden one with a rabbit silhouette. You can visit their etsy shop and have one shipped directly to you!

The creator behind The Otter and The Fox gathers real Australian wild flowers and makes them into these whimsical necklaces with personal messages inserted. What a very clever idea. The flowers are dried and will last a very long time, so if anyone is looking for a gorgeous personalized gift, this would be perfect!

Yu Hui of Mihua Play http://www.wretch.cc/blog/candydog

Mihua Play is a collection of adorable drawings based on the creator’s own pets. There are postcards and bookmarks and even a little booklet of stories. I couldn’t resist and even bought myself a card of a cat under an umbrella, it reminded me of my own Sammy. You can find Mihua Play on facebook, just search for it!

I have unfortunately misplaced the details of this next designer, all I could glean my the photo is they’re called Mouse. Colorful fabric buttons and brooches and rings, they’re utterly adorable and great to jazz up an outfit with a spot of fun. If anyone know how to contact them, let me know.

Next Becky and I popped by Amor Y Locura, a neat place filled to the brim with Mexican motifs and Día de los Muertos. It’s not something I generally see but those grinning skulls do bring a smile to my face.

If you’re next in Fitzroy and looking for some interesting antique and furniture, try dropping by.

You’ll also find a cafe called Sonido nearby which serves some refreshing local South American fruit drinks. Not a bad way to spend a few hours in the afternoon.

Black Bird Market is open every second Saturday of every month.
