Well don't worry, here are a few great places to look for handmade and unique items that will be much appreciated by your friends and family....
The Collective Store
104 Bay Terrace, Wynnum
This is an artistic hub filled to the rafters with beautiful well-made and thoughtful handmade gifts by local artisans. I have just delivered my first batch of monoprinted journals, bookmarks and cards.
|Its a bright and airy shop, with large windows|
for after hours window browsing!

some of the artists' beautiful work.
I think she's got the best job in the world,
surrounded by all those goodies.
|Here is my little shelf, filled to the brim with delicious wares!|
Another Xmas shopping opportunity...
Bontanique Christmas Bazaar
Auditorium @ Mt Cootha Botanic Gardens, Toowong
Opening & Preview Thursday 21 November 6pm
Friday 22 November - Sunday 24 November
I'm exhibiting my monoprints - framed works as well as books, bookmarks and cards. There's also workshops being run inconjuction with the Bazaar. Refer to the flyer below for more details.
I'll be at the opening, might see you there!
My final recommendation is...
Christmas "Art Shop"
Ground Floor (facing Moreton Bay)
Mon Komo Hotel
99 Marine Parade
17 November to 24 December
Jo St Baker, owner of St+Baker+Studio (and gallery) is holding a fantastic exhibition of artwork and small art wares, including works from local printmakers from Impress Printmakers Studio. I'm exhibiting some more of my monoprints, both framed and made into books etc. Of course, as you know all of my monoprints are unique, so all artworks will be quite different in each location.
No excuses now!
