Design Made Trade & Melbourne Design Market!

So we survived and had a fabulous time at our two pop up shops over the past wintery Melbourne weekend! Did you throw on your scarf and gloves to come visit NoteMaker at Design Made Trade or The Melbourne Design Market? If you couldn't make it down here is our photo recap of a busy weekend for the NoteMaker team.

Design Made Trade was held in the world heritage listed Royal Exhibition Building in the scenic Carlton Gardens; which proved to be a wonderful location to showcase the many wonderful designers and stores partaking in this State of Design event. State of Design has become a Melbourne essential event on the winter calendar. If you haven't checked out some of the great events you still have time as it runs until 31 July, this Sunday.

We decided to showcase some of our most desirable and designer appealing brands at Design Made Trade - Rhodia, Delfonics, Clairefontaine Goldline, Koh-i-Noor, DodoCase and Moleskine.

Not in Melbourne for Design Made Trade? Fear not designer stationery fans we have put together our Essentials Collection - meanwhile.....

Just a few kilometers away at the architectural icon that is Federation Square, hundreds of eager and chilled to the bone Melbournians braved the journey down the carpark to visit the Melbourne Design Market. Held bi-annually the Design Market is another event essential for design aficionados.

For our pop up sale here we decided to go for a fun carnival feeling ready for the excited patrons with bunting in bright colours to lighten up an otherwise rainy day. Or most popular sellers ended up running out the door of customers hands - MT Tape, O-Check Design Graphics, Cooterboy, Serrote and Yellow Owl Workshop.

Didn't make it down to the Design Market - don't worry you can still catch a bargain over at our SALE as well as go into the draw to win this fab stationery hamper. Winner announced 31 July 2011.

  1. One of the NoteMaker’s partners came over to Gold Coast to scout for new designs and suppliers for their shop and one of the staff in the office does DIY and crafts on the side. She actually got to meet NoteMaker partner and managed to secure a contract to supply some DIY items. It was a great day for her that she gave us a preview of what it is and sent us samples of the craft she made.
