If you go to any store to buy an item that is made in Australia, you will be hard pressed to find anything that is actually made in Australia. Go into any store that sells Australian Souvenirs, turn it over, and what do you see? I have yet to find a souvenir that says "Made in Australia".
I often buy from markets and specialty stores that sell local products. By choosing items that are made locally or handmade items at markets I am supporting the local economy and my local community.
I went to the opening of a new concept store that supports local artists and artisans of food. The owner of this new store has an amazing vision for handmade items. The vision is to promote locally made products both online and in store.
At the opening there was some really great food items as well as handmade clothes, art works, photography, and some amazing handmade items.
If you live in the Melbourne, VIC area, come visit Made Locally. If your a seller of locally made products, this is a great place to sell your products too.
