Bowerbird Design Market celebrates 10 years

Celebrating its 10th year, Bowerbird Design Market returns to the Adelaide Showground from 1 – 3 November, showcasing a curated selection of exciting local and interstate designers, with creative workshops, artisan food and craft beverages and music to enjoy across the weekend. Director, Jane Barwick, is passionate about Bowerbird’s continued growth. "It's incredibly exciting after 10 years to be going from strength to strength,’’ she says. “Our proudly South Australian event has an excellent reputation around Australia. “We attract a large contingent of new stallholders each time, both local and interstate and emerging and established, as well as welcoming back designers who have been part of the event since the start. “All keen to take part and show new collections to the hugely receptive audience we've established in Adelaide." With Christmas just around the corner, Bowerbird is the ideal event to kick off the festive shopping season with some market favourites guaranteed to have that unique gift for friends and family. For the November event we’re also pleased to announce 40 new designers. In total there are more than 200 stallholders selling accessories, artwork, stationery, skincare, clothing and textiles, furniture, lighting, homewares and gifts for kids.
