Joyful, beautiful, mindful – these are some of the words used to describe the things waiting for you to discover at the General Collective Lifestyle & Design Market this Sunday.
Showcasing 200 Kiwi entrepreneurs who have taken their creative ideas and passions and developed exciting products to provide an elevated shopping experience – just for you. It’s a place where crochet is cool, craft takes on new meaning, and where small batch, bespoke creations are celebrated.
We set the bar high for our markets, so you won’t find bric-a-brac or mass-produced products, just oodles of enthusiasm from really talented local creatives.
Here’s just a small taste of what to expect…
If you’re in the market for darn-cute, bespoke knitwear for your little ones Kismet & Co’s collection of rompers, cardigans, woven basket pants and bloomers are all handmade here in New Zealand and Peru using high quality yarn in earthy tones.
If you want in on the DIY action, Joy Make Club is leading a creative movement to prove anyone can be their own maker using their Super Sick Knit Kits. Containing fat knitting needles, chunky funky wool and all the support you need to knit your own beanie or cardi, their kits are fun, creative and empowering.
Meanwhile, there’s no chunky wool being used at Mini Crochet! Their intricate, delicate crochet creations include jewellery, accessories and toys on the most miniscule of scales. It’s hard not to be impressed by the level of detail involved in these sweet creations.
If detail is your thing, be sure to stop in on Claymore for their intricate, vintage and romantic inspired polymer clay jewellery made with love in small batches.
Travelling all the way from Queenstown to show off their breath-taking preserved moss art for the first time at General Collective is Gaea. If you’ve never experienced moss art, it is a sight to behold and such a unique, no-maintenance addition to your home.
There’s so much more to discover at this market like no other, and we welcome you all to come and see the difference.
