made an appearance at the melbourne design market on sunday. a successful and productive market this year, in my opinion. the market generally stocks around 2/5 of the same stalls every year, which is a tad disappointing. begs the question, does the lack of accessible creativity reflect melbourne's artistic talent, or lack thereof? i've never really queried it - i am a proud melbournian and do enjoy the artistic culture and lifestyle of the city dwellers. perhaps it's more of a 'good things come to those who wait' situation. must be. that said, i'm pretty sure a majority of the stalls were selling non-australian designed or made products. back on topic, i managed to pick up the following: -
- cards by able and game - these cards make me smile. we purchase these every time, so it only seemed fitting to ensure we lived up to the tradition. i do quite like the google card.
- keepcup - great colour combination, eh? it reminds me of a watermelon. @alfalfasaysyes picked out the colours and we bought matching keepcups. can you feel the love?
- great balls of wire - a nifty little gadget to keep all your wires in some logical order. great for OCD people, such as myself.
- stock album - a petite photo album with pockets, for my instant fuji instax shots. i like the concept. the pockets also remind me of those old yellow pockets in school library books. i don't even remember the correct term for those anymore, it was that long ago.
