As Brisbane markets go, they don’t get much better than this lantern lit night market with the backdrop of an illuminated City Hall and accompanying jazz band.
And the wares more than do justice to the setting, for assembled under the historic clocktower that has at one time contained both the Queen and the Beatles are the largest number of stalls peddling quality hand made goods to be found in the one spot.
Expect everything from skull brooches, crochet caps, cards, textile jewellery, gritty tees, resin jewellery and children’s PJs to lingerie, upstyled army bags, cushions and accessories made from everything imaginable – scrabble letters, typewriter keys, skateboard pieces, kimonos, fob watches and jelly balls. And that’s just the half of it, for there over 100 emerging and established artisans are represented here.
In fact this is the kind of place to arrive at sunset and suddenly find the clock striking nine.
