The Little Market at Avid Reader

I have been meaning to get to this craft market for ages and ages (years actually) but always seem to miss it. I live in West End and love The Avid Reader bookstore - it's an independant venture started by a couple of locals a long time ago - in that time it has moved location once and has opened a cafe in the back - it's always had the same, great inviting atmosphere that a lovely bookshop's also open late (I love a bookshop browse at night).

Anyhoo - The Lovely Thing Makers are a local loose collective who hold a little craft market in the back courtyard of Avid Reader on the last Friday of each month (5.30 - 8pm) - so THIS FRIDAY (note to self) - I'm meeting my blog friend Ellie (from Red Seed Studio) there. I can't wait!


  1. that sounds a treat! maybe i will come for good times too :)
    thank you for your support with my new blog, i just gave you a lovely award! check out my page to see it :)

  2. I remember Avid Reader when they were in that teeny little shop. It was fantastic then, with lovely friendly service and a great selection of books (kids style books for me at that time - we used to go with my mum + dad when we visited Brisbane for the day, oh so many years ago).
    Can't wait to see you at the market on Friday. Will be fun to chat.
