OUR SPEAKERS - Julie Nichols and Rachel Evagalou founders of Handmade Canberra What seems a life time ago now, back in 2008, we launched our very first Handmade Market. Canberra had some great markets, but none that really catered just to handmade designers. With very little money but a great business plan and vision, the first market was launched. With a focus on local designers, just 35 stalls and thousands of shoppers, the Handmade Market became an instant hit. By 2010 the call for more markets was loud. We were now showcasing over 150 designers and had taken Handmade to the National Convention Centre. Over 15,000 customers attend each event. From this demand the beautiful Shop Handmade was launched. With a passion for supporting independent, small and creative businesses and connecting them to their target customers we've created a market and a shopfront that maintain a grass roots level and also a high standard in quality, workmanship and sensational customer service. The Handmade Market and Shop Handmade are both the perfect place to launch your new products onto the market without the cost and burden of setting up your own shopfront. For our gorgeous customers you can meet the designer behind the product, know you will always find something new and support our very own Australian designers. Insert warm and fuzzy feeling...
