Welcome to Miss May's Fave Travel Things , sharing my latest obsession that I love. I recently got back from a month of design markets, and met a lot of makers and shakers in Sydney, Melbourne and Canberra.
Look at all the pretty things I've found this month!
Needless to say, I had a thing with tassels. So obsessed with handmade Gemima's Kingston Jewellery, beautifully crafted in Victoria. And no two piece of ear rings are identical as this babe paints them all by hand.
And if you love herbal apothecary, you'll fall in love with the prettiest soap you'll ever see, Cleanse By Hepzabeth. All Hepzabeth's soaps look so yummy, I want to eat them (of course, that's not recommended).
For something rustic and retro, I've got the Vintage Preserving Jar Lantern by Mister Upswitch. Beautifully repurposed from old jars found in Victoria, the portable lantern is perfect for all those Insta shoots!
If you love big statement resin jewellery, look no further. Laura Sulivan of Ellis Resin, makes the prettiest colour block bangles and necklaces. I'm in love with my cream, pink and black resin bangle.
I've been using the Botanical Hand & Body Balm by Archon Designs. Made in Sydney, it's made of locally sourced ingredients. I love the sweet citrus smell of orange and jasmine, by far the loveliest!
Below, are a list of makers and shakers with direct links to their websites.
