  • 107 is wheelchair accessible and 100% dog friendly – in fact, dogs are encouraged. This lil guy might even drop by over the weekend, so you can stock up on pats as well as markety goodness.
  • If you're like us, you already plan your winter outfits around a great pair of socks. But what about summer? Enter Celine Okada & Imogen Bowman, proprietors of Socc Socks and makers of statement wear for your feet. Socc was born out of a great friendship and a shared aesthetic. Their luxurious, lightweight slips are intended for both special occasions and the everyday statement dresser. We don't know about you, but we're already planning our new wardrobe... You can find the creative duo at their stall on both days of our market. If you can't wait that long, feast your eyes on their range in our blog below.
  • Hello! Is this a dog friendly event?
  • Planning on doing your Christmas shopping at the markets? Why not get your gifts wrapped by The Welcome Dinner Project charity gift wrapping stall? For a gold coin donation on Saturday, you can have your purchases beautifully wrapped in donated paper, with all funds going to a good cause. The Welcome Dinner Project is a simple yet profound social movement bringing people together to share food and stories. They bring newly arrived people: asylum seekers, migrants, refugees and international students together with established Australians over pot-luck meals in a local host's home. Welcome Dinners are free to attend and the aim is to provide a space of inclusion, welcome and acceptance to foster meaningful connections in communities. Money raised will go towards helping them to create more Welcome Dinners and connect more newly arrived and established Australians in 2018. Check out their fundraising campaign at www.welcomeyourway.org or sign up to hear about upcoming dinners at www.joiningthedots.org.
  • We've been keeping it pretty quiet, but not only are we holding a market, we're also celebrating the opening of our newest exhibition space - a permanent home for all of the brilliant work on 107 Objects. To help us break in the new space we've got support from our favourite local brewer Yulli's Brews. Drop in early and join us for a tinnie to celebrate a whole lot of hard work from our vollies and artists. We can't wait to share it with you!
  • Natasha Michels is a Sydney gal and one half of Halcyon Daze Zines. She has been drawing ever since she could hold a pencil, and finds inspiration from the many and varied Australian flora and fauna. You can find her and her wares on Saturday, or decorate your wall with one of her prints from the online store now: goo.gl/cPMXan
  • HooDooLouLou runs a small handmade jewellery business specialising in sterling silver jewellery and ethically sourced gemstones. Her handcrafted creations blend ancient techniques with modern minimalism. Made with recycled silver and locally sourced gemstones, her pieces come with intrinsic imperfections. Covering everything from staples to statements, each neckpiece and ring changes subtly over time, reflecting the life of the wearer. Find her at her stall on Sunday 17th, and maybe pick up your next favourite piece.
  • Sunday Francis works with found objects and recycled metals, creating poetic one-off jewellery pieces: cruel, curious, abject and sensual. A fierce femme with the conviction that aesthetics equals ethics, her practice is situated within cultures of ***** crafting and creative salvage. You'll find her on Saturday, or take a (very small) sneak peak of her wares on the online store: goo.gl/nVd3K4
  • When we heard about the concept of shoe accessories we were pretty intrigued. When we learned that they were all limited edition, hand made right here in Sydney from sustainable leather offcuts, we were in. They're the perfect way to jazz up that old pair of shoes, or customise them for a special outfit. You can find Sovereign Collection's full range of leather accessories on both Saturday & Sunday - but hurry, we might just snap them up first.
  • Vickie Liu (aka Studio KaKa) makes quirky watercolour prints and colourful acrylic paintings from her home studio in Sydney. She'll be here both days for all your art print/gift card/eye candy needs.
  • Mira from Melancholy Memento makes illustrated cards and art prints. Her work shares stories of womanhood, often using astronomical imagery and the occult as symbols of femininity. Mira draws from tales that inspire her - either from lyrics, folklore or personal experiences. This love of storytelling started from childhood, and it was through her grandmother she found the best storyteller. There she cherished the morals behind stories. You can find Mira on Sunday, selling her range of Christmas and greeting cards and prints, or on Instagram @melancholymemento.
  • Live Softly is more than a laptop case, it's a chance for employment and education for marginalised & disabled craftspeople in Nepal. Local designer Elise Slater works closely with a charity which provides housing and support for people living with leprosy and their families. Every case is hand made with care, with a focus on conscious design and zero waste techniques. You can find her at our market on Saturday, and also on Instagram @livesoftly.
  • Introducing our first stallholder, resident artist and talented beard-grower jimbob jameson. He'll be selling his collection of screen-printed t-shirts, prints and pot plants. If you can't wait until December, you can get a sneak peek now on the online store: www.objects.107.org.au
