Markets primed for gift shopping

BUY handmade and buy local - that's the message the organiser of the Made With Love Markets, Alison Paul, wants to get across this Christmas.

More than 100 stallholders have booked for the Made With Love Markets being held at C.ex Coffs from 9am this Sunday, and Ms Paul said there would be something for everyone.

"Everything is locally handmade, created or designed and includes soaps, specialty teas, cookies and cakes, wooden toys, softies, gorgeous baby, kids' and adult clothing, candles, jewellery, crystals, hats, plants, journals, woodwork, hair accessories, artwork, cards and decor and much more," she said.

"Without a doubt you'll be able to do all of your Christmas shopping under the one roof.

"Not only will you be supporting local families but you will also be purchasing some gorgeous unique items for your loved ones."

The Made with Love Markets started in May 2011 and are now held three times each year.
