Do you {heart} handmade?

If you do YAY because do I have the place for you!

If you are sick of mass production and plastic, cheap, inferior products Oz Handmade is the place to be.

Oz Handmade is an online market open 24/7. At Oz Handmade we specialise in handmade, Australian items.

We stock anything from toys to clothes for all the family to jewellery and MCN’s (modern cloth nappies)

We have currently some exciting new stores in the wings, they should be open soon so check out Oz Handmade as more and more stores open up with gorgeous handmade goods.

I am passionate about the handmade notion. When our Grandparents were children they didn’t have the plastic fantastic world we live in now or their Parents could simply not afford to buy them toys from a store, so their Parents and Grandparents lovingly made them clothes and toys that are often passed down from generation to generation.

The handmade revolution (as I would like to call it) has begun, instead of buying a one of a million item of clothing or a toy that you know won’t last the distant (or the next day) people as young as 5 are making toys or clothes for themselves, people are taking up sewing as a hobby like never before due in part I believe to the financial crisis that has swept the worlds financial markets in the past 6 months and also partly due to the fact people, a) want to know where their item came from, b) want to rid the world of plastic fantastic toys and clothing and c) to make something functional out of a bit of fabric or a piece of paper.

We’re getting back to our roots. Be it growing and edible garden as they did in war time to creating functional and beautiful items for ourselves and our homes.

*Off my soap box I hop :)
