With only 10 Days to go til our Christmas Market, Northern Regards is excited to welcome back…
As you know we like to ask our returning stall holders to share some of what inspires them in life and their creative endeavors. Here’s what the lovely TishTashy had to say…
Why do you choose to use recycled/upcycled or sustainable pieces in your handmade craft ?
Because this age of disposable consumerism has gotten way out of hand. Personally, I would much rather purchase recycled, handmade, local, and sustainable goods, so it just came naturally.
Why is handmade important to you ?
As a creator, it gives me an outlet. Also, I’ve always loved one of a kind items, whatever they might be. As a consumer, I love knowing that I am directly supporting people within my community.
Which is your favourite Melbourne suburb and why ?
Tough question, I love so many for various reasons but my biggest soft spot is for Thornbury. We rented a little house on Mansfield Street for 3 years and think about moving back all of the time. The community is fantastic, and the streets are super bicycle friendly.
When you are not making or selling at markets, what would we find you doing ?
Hanging out with the funniest one year old ever, or walking our Chihuahua doggie, Trixie.
Coffee or tea ? Wine or beer ?
Coffee and Wine!!
So come on down to Northern Regards Artisan Market on Saturday 14th December 11am til 4 at Northcote Social Club and grab yourself some gorgeous TishTashy wares – a sustainable Christmas gift for someone you love!
We can’t wait to see you there!
