The Designers Emporium Boutique Markets is flourishing in Brisbane Northern suburbs. Showcasing amazing handmade and handsourced items, the word is out about this little retail gem. Set in the relaxed surrounding of the Everton Park Hotel, customers can browse the indoor markets in comfort, have a coffee in the lounge, let the children play in the expansive playground or grab a bite to eat.

Christmas comes but once a year....
Christmas might come once a year, but it seems to last for months! All the planning and the buying, then the wrapping and the hiding away, followed by the stuffing (both the turkey and ourselves!) and then the inevitable afternoon snooze - it can take a lot out of you.The good news is there are great gifts and bargains to be had, if you know where to look. I plan to stay away from as many of the big shopping centres as I can again this year (who needs the stress?!). With great markets like the Designers Emporium around, it is even easier to find that 'difficult to buy for' present or something of quality and craft at a price to suit any budget. Take some time to look through this website and blog and you are sure to find something of interest or perhaps even, the very thing you've been looking for! Don't be afraid to ask questions and find out what went into creating some of the amazing items for sale. A small, but well chosen gift can trump the flashiest bulk made gadget if you take the time to look. So here's hoping to see lots of new faces for our Christmas Markets on Sunday. It's sure to be a great day out for everyone!
