Acland Street welcomes a new face this weekend with the Southside Handmade & Vintage Market, which kicks off this Saturday at the St Kilda RSL.
The market will boast a curated selected collection of vintage pieces as well as handcrafted, one-off pieces made by the talented hands of local designers such as Mariska Thynne of The Professor’s Daughter and Melissa Chacon from Grandma Funkl.
Not only does the market fuse together the old and the new clothing-wise, but also jewels, chains and rings, with local labels such as Ruby Louise joining the scene. Antique candles, tea-sets and kitsch home-wares will also add to the preloved collection, as well as children’s wear and menswear to cater for the whole family.
The Southside Handmade & Vintage Market is hosted on the last Saturday of every month, with a bar service opening from midday to serve ice cold pints – the perfect way to kick-start your weekend.
WHEN: Saturday, July 28, 11 -4pm
WHERE: St Kilda RSL, 88 Acland Street St Kilda
