Hello May. We have a wonderful Bend and Snap Market (this Sunday 26th May at 1000 £ Bend from 11:00am to 4:00pm) for all of you market lovers out there from henna heaven (we have Kajal back again this month to get henna happy all about your person) to our pop up winter wonderland Crafternoon Corner presented by The Melbourne Alternative Crafters and getting sweetened up spoonful by spoonful with sweet treats courtesy of Spoonfuls of Love as well as our fabulous fanfare of art, design, fashion and vintage featuring some of our beloved stallholders plus a number of new Bend and Snappers we have brought to the fold.






These handcrafted and up-cycled clocks made from bicycle parts by Tread and Pedals (read more about Em and Ivan the designers here) make me want to lock myself in a room surrounded by their entire range of clocks made from every single conceivable part of a bicycle (from the bicycle cogs, the chains, the wheels, the tubes, the tires) and play Ken Nordine’s What Time Is It? on repeat. Preferably a lock down in a craft shed like Lis from Petites Curiosités.


Beautiful artwork by Lisa R Purcell featuring an amazing range of avian miscellany and other worldly wonders. Subtle, sweet and so sublime. Smitten? Have a look at more her work on her blog.


Fancy a little vintage romance? See Bakspace Vintage for a little sartorial seduction and play a little vintage dress up and Mystery Date with the matchmakers of fine vintage wares along with a selection of Rag Traders from last weekends Rag Trade who will also be selling their swag at Bend and Snap Market this Sunday (check out the photos from Rag Trade last Saturday here).

Other items to look out for are Dragon’s Blood soy soap by My Goat Soap (perfect for a pre and post Game of Thrones night in), the sweet plush toothies from The Creature Workshop, pyrite and crystal cluster rings and crystal pendants from Jux, flower crowns and compass pendants (for the flowers childs that lose their way) from Jack’s Calling, dachshund printed everything from Louie & The Fox, the intricately embroidered collars from Eelav McBee and so much more.
