Just a few doors down from the corner of Flinders lane and Spring street, if you descend down the stairs of number 31 into Craft Victoria’s gift store, you’ll find a thoroughly curated selection of craft objects, handmade accessories and homewares.

This gallery shop is the public arm of the Craft Victoria organisation, which also handles a monthly, curated art and craft market at the Queen Victoria Market, workshops, exhibitions and a number of other activities and resources. Craft Victoria is always a great spot to find that last-minute gift for the person you never know what to buy. You can always depend on it to find something that brightens up the barren shelf in your house, and discover uncanny and beautiful objects that exhibit incredible handmade detail. It’s an institution that showcases and promotes the vibrant craft and design culture of Melbourne.
