Shop ‘til you drop at King George Square this December, because this market will be featuring over 60 local designers of handmade goods. Now in its 12th year, the BrisStyle Twilight Christmas Market showcases all sorts of goodies, right from cleverly crafted ceramics to all-natural skincare.

Non-profit organisation BrisStyle is under the direction of Operations Manager Belinda Harris, who leads the group’s initiative in providing Brisbane makers with meaningful opportunities to connect with their audiences.

“Our creative minds were among the first to be negatively impacted by COVID 19. By shopping with Brisbane-based designers and buying directly from the maker there is no better way to give much-needed support to the local creative economy as we start to recover in 2022,” said Ms Harris.
