Welcome New Sponsor MadeIt

If you are interested in putting your hard-earned cash back into the local economy this year, look no further than huge online marketplace and new Bondville sponsor, MadeIt.

You will find literally thousands of items for sale by small independent Australian designers and crafters in categories such as accessories, art, fashion, children, toys, craft, homewares, jewellery, pets, stationery and wedding. Many of the designers featured here on Bondville have MadeIt stores, which makes it easy to buy online in Australian dollars.

I got lost for hours looking for some favourites to share with you:

LOVE decor letters in turquoise/pink by Mooza Designs (from the MadeIt gift guide)

Woven Felt Basket by Imagination In Flight (from the MadeIt gift guide)

The "Snigglebottom" family softies by Little Diva Designs

Fascinator by Chicuff by Daneve (made from reclaimed enviro green bags!), great for a Green Melbourne Cup.

  1. Oh my goodness. Christmas shopping! I feel behind already

  2. Hi Pixel. Don't worry; I've only picked up one thing so far. Hoping to make this a mostly handmade Christmas.

  3. Yup, and Christmas is long gone already in 2010. Having just dispatched with Easter, and winter rolling in on the southern hemisphere there are no foreseeable religious holidays on the near horizon, so starting the planning for Christmas early this year may be a worthwhile goal to set oneself....

    MadeIt is an awesome concept, as I feel any efforts to nurture and promote creativity by exposing artists and craftspeople's work to a greater audience is really meaningful and uplifting on so many levels, from sheer self expression through to financial benefit from all the arty hours that you've put in.

    Enough chatting, do have a great week everyone.

    All the best.
