Australian Made Fair
It’s been a tough year for small businesses, with the double-whammy (and subsequent economic impacts) of the coronavirus and bushfires. The inaugural Australian Made Fair – handily held just before Christmas – aims to showcase those businesses, giving punters an easy way to ensure their money is going where it’s needed. Plus, to encourage as many patrons as possible to (socially distantly) attend the fair, it’s also completely free.
Pick up homewares, furniture, clothes, jewellery, presents for pooches, food and wine. But it’s not all about retail products – attendees also get the chance to book holidays, look into renovations, indulge in beauty treatments, engage with finance experts and meet Aussie food producers.
The fair is run by Expertise Events, another Australian, family-run business that’s been feeling the economic pinch of the year 2020. “It’s never been more important to buy Australian-made and support local businesses,” says fair organiser Gary Fitz-Roy. “The Australia Made Fair [showcases] products consumers and businesses may have never seen before, all in one spot.”
Applications are now open for exhibitors and stallholders.
