2020 has definitely been a year of digging deep, pulling together and supporting one another and with Christmas just around the corner (how did that happen?) General Collective are encouraging the community to get behind Kiwi creatives by buying local at the General Collective Lifestyle & Design Market on 6 December.
“It has been really inspiring seeing Kiwi’s rally behind small businesses and New Zealand brands this year,” says Rose Barbarich, Founder of General Collective.
“Supporting local is something we feel really passionate about. Choosing to buy from New Zealand makers and creatives this Christmas will make a huge difference to people who have done it particularly tough this year – you’re also buying gifts that are unique and often one of a kind.”
General Collective is renowned as a mecca for high-end, design-focused, and hand-crafted products designed or created here in New Zealand – the Christmas Lifestyle & Design market is their flagship event of the year.
Thoughtfully curated to ensure you tick off everyone on your Christmas gift list (even Dads), stalls will showcase a wide range of quality products including fashion, accessories, homewares and beauty along with an inspiring collection of toys, books and unique gifts for the kids.
Explore New Zealand brands, grab delicious food from some of Auckland’s best street food vendors, enjoy top-notch coffee or a cheeky glass or two at the wine bar and enjoy connecting with our talented creatives. There are even free activity stations set up to keep the kids entertained and plenty of artisan goodies to take home and fill your pantry with Christmas cheer.
Come and see the difference this Christmas!
