COME one come all to the Caloun­dra Arts Cen­tre As­so­ci­a­tion’s (CACA) North Street Mak­ers’ Mar­kets.

CACA is com­mit­ted to sup­port­ing in­de­pen­dent artists and de­sign­ers and the new mar­kets make way for this op­por­tu­nity.

The stall­hold­ers pour love, pas­sion and crafts­man­ship into their cre­ations from quirky chil­dren’s dolls, in­tri­cate jew­ellery, unique paint­ings and hand painted surf­boards.

CACA sec­re­tary Tr­ish Thomas said the mar­ket is an op­por­tu­nity for lo­cal artists to show the Coast what they’re made of.

“It’s a true mak­ers mar­ket, ev­ery­thing is gen­uinely hand­made. We don’t have any­thing im­ported,” she said.

The sec­re­tary said there’s a mas­ter plan in place to ex­pand the CACA “but it won’t be avail­able for some time”.

“This will also be an op­por­tu­nity to fundraise for the mas­ter plan.”

The first Mak­ers’ Mar­kets will kick off at 8.30am-1pm on De­cem­ber 8 at the Caloun­dra Arts Cen­tre, 5 North Street.

Rif­fle through hand made good­ies for the per­fect Christ­mas gift while sup­port­ing the com­mu­nity.
