AN AUTUMN oasis will greet people looking to buy some of Tasmania's finest hand-made goods today.

Niche Tasmanian Makers' Bazaar has raised more than $100,000 for St Giles since 2009.

This year's autumn theme promises a setting of bean bags, artificial turf, trees and apples for children thanks to Lees Orchards and Alan's Garden Centre.

Beautiful handmade products will be available to buy.

"We've hand-picked every stall based on a policy of only ever accepting top quality Tasmanian designed and made items," market manager Liz Strange said.

"Forty of the stallholders have never been on show at Niche, and that's really exciting."

Stallholders donate 20 per cent of the day's earnings to St Giles.

The money helps the children's disability service in its support of 6000 children every year.
