Meet Camberwell Sunday Market stallholder Helen Yang

Helen Yang is renowned for creating distinctive accessories in her signature Japanese button style.

Her business B2 Buttons and Beads has been operating a stall at the Camberwell Sunday Market for more than 10 years.

Using traditional Japanese silk fabrics in bright colours and stunning prints, Ms Yang sells a range of products including earrings, hair clips, rings, brooches, magnets, head bands, cards, soft toys and more.

She also uses high-end Japanese Miyuki Delica beads in the beading products and Liberty fabrics from the renowned London department store.

“I love making these things. It allows me to be very creative. And I’m always trying to learn new techniques so I can make new products,” she said.

Ms Yang has recently taken up leathermaking and now offers a collection of handmade leather bags, purses, and pouches. Her signature handbag design features an interchangeable strap which allows the bag to be carried as a backpack or over the shoulder.

“When I buy the leather, I make sure I buy it in Melbourne so I can see it and feel it myself before I buy it. I want to make sure it is authentic,” Ms Yang said.

Ms Yang said she hoped her designs would bring happiness to those who purchased them.

Happy Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day has a long and sometimes rocky history, however, there is no doubt that in the late 5th century in Rome, Saint Valentine was recognised by the Pope. Centuries later February the 14th was designated as St Valentine’s Day and became a day to express ‘love and affection.’

Flowers have also been intrinsically linked to the expression of love for centuries. Roses were used by the Romans as for medicines, perfumes and confetti; newly married couples would wear crowns of roses and petals splashes over their bed.

If you are after fresh flowers in preparation of Monday, there are two well know corner stalls at the market to meet your needs.

The act of creating pressed and dried flowers also represents a tradition across many cultures and many centuries and is a specialty of Maria, a relatively new stallholder at stall #407 each Sunday.

A florist by training, Maria began specialising in dried flower arrangements, gifts and literal works of botanic art during the pandemic. While Maria sadly lost her florist business during lockdown, the ever adaptable Maria began exploring how to use her skills on products that, unlike fresh flowers, last more that a a few weeks.

In 2022 Maria opened her first stall at Camberwell Market, just near her new business at Shop 14, Camberwell Arcade, Camberwell. Maria is open Tuesday to Sunday and operates stall #407 from 7am to 12:30pm before then opening her shop from 1pm to 5pm in the Arcade. Maria said she loves the market and the arcade:

I really enjoy being at the market and meeting so many wonderful people. I enjoy telling people about dried flowers and the beautiful creations that can be made. The secret is the quality of the flower – that is what makes a dried flower last so long.

Cheap imported dried flowers are poor quality and deteriorate quickly, so Maria has carefully selected Australian suppliers to provide the top quality dried flowers for all her works of art, that are truly one of a kind! You will find that hand made arrangements by Maria use quality flowers that will leave you able to enjoy her work for months and even years.

You can contact Maria by email at hi@best1ofakind.com or by visiting her stall on Sunday or the Best 1 of a Kind shop in Camberwell Arcade 10am to 5pm (closed Mondays). Website www.best1ofakind.com
