Patrons wanting to get their hands on the best homemade goodies in Launceston were treated to a plethora of items at the the Niche Market Bazaar, which was held at Albert Hall on Saturday.
With about 60 stallholders items for sale included soaps from Bee Native products, jewellery from Noox Jewellery, recycled art from Bent Tasmania, berry products from Longford Berries and embroidery art from Old at Heart, with 20 percent of the money made on the day going to St Giles.
Christmas carols echoed throughout the hall as Christmas baubles, rocky road and other treats got shoppers in the festive mood.
The Christmas-themed event aim was held to raise funds to purchase life-enhancing equipment for the 6000 who use the services St Giles provide. A very green exhibitor was Debbie Hingston from Deb's Succulent Garden, with a large range of potted and hanging plants for sale.
"I do everything I can with succulents," she said.
"I put them into beautiful pots of all kinds from animal shaped, to lovely terracotta pots and soon I'll be doing Christmas wreaths.
"I've been doing this for about six years now. I've got half an acre out at Legana so lots of room to grow and propagate my succulents and I love coming to the market to sell them."
The market was the last of three Niche Markets to have taken place in the North and North-West this year, with another held in Devonport last week.
Running for 11 years, Niche is one of Tasmania's most successful design-and-make enterprises.
