We miss you!

Dear friends of Camberwell Sunday Market,

I hope you’re keeping safe and well. It’s been a tough couple of months for many of you, some out of work, some isolating away from family and friends, and others managing the horrors of home schooling. Some of you are our front-line workers, doing an amazing job looking after us despite the risks of COVID19. We are forever grateful for all that you do.

Our market is such an important part of our community, and COVID19 has been a timely reminder of the importance of community. The simple joy of coming together each Sunday, sharing a smile, finding a treasure, seeing an old friend, making a new friend, having a gooey jam donut or a delicious hot dog.

Are you missing the Camberwell Sunday Market?
Because we’re missing you!

The Camberwell Sunday Market will be back bigger and better in coming months. While it is unlikely that we will be open before the second half of 2020, we WILL be back, and WILL be planning a celebration to remember.

Just as a heads up, I hope you’re using your time at home to plan your stall, make your home-crafts, and clean out your cupboards for trash and treasure. You won’t want to miss it! I’ll keep you updated about likely start dates, and the process for booking your stall.

Getting our market back up and running is important for all of us, and especially for Rotary who use the money raised each week to continue their wonderful work supporting the most
vulnerable in our local community and around the world.

Keep your chin up, and your hands clean. Hope to see you all soon.

Regards,

Paul
Market Manager

Happy Easter 2020

Good morning Everyone & Happy Easter!

We know that for many people the Camberwell Market is an important part of Easter Sunday. In years gone past, we would receive messages from people returning home for Easter and just wanting to ‘make sure we’d be open.’

Often coming from overseas or interstate, the Market was part of their family Easter Sunday tradition: it meant being ‘home’.

So from our family to yours, we miss you too and, although we are all in locked down this year, we’re pretty sure next Easter will be a ripper.

Happy Easter and we hope to be seeing you in a few months time when it’s safe to meet again. Take care.

Discover art, crafts and homewares in Camberwell

Art, crafts and homewares have the power to instantly lift the décor of a room, as well as improve our wellness and sense of happiness.

It’s that beautiful print that reminds us of our trip to Italy; the porcelain figurine like the one Grandma had in her home; that bright yellow post-modern painting that looks like nothing in particular, but just seems to energise us every time we walk past.

No one really knows when they will stumble upon a piece of art or craft that will ‘speak’ to them, but with all the treasures hidden within the Rotary Camberwell Sunday Market and the wide range of stores in the Camberwell shopping precinct, you’re sure to find something that will brighten your home and your life.

Discover the art of the Rotary Camberwell Sunday Market

According to local legend, several visitors to the Rotary Camberwell Sunday Market have gone looking for a little painting to brighten up the dark corner of their home, only to discover that charming little painting was actually a valuable work of art.

There was the family that used small change to purchase a painting from an unassuming homewares stall. It turned out to be a Tom Roberts and later sold for $25,000.

Then there was the man who picked up a double portrait by Janet Agnes Cumbrae Stewart for $50, only to discover it was worth about $6,000. He didn’t sell it though; he really liked the painting.

It’s a familiar sentiment. While you’re not guaranteed to find a masterpiece at Rotary Camberwell Sunday Market, you are sure to find a painting, sculpture, ceramic piece or vintage object you will fall in love with.

Professional and amateur artists themselves frequent the Rotary Camberwell Sunday Market to find supplies for their own arts and crafts projects.

Wandering though the stalls, up-cycle artists, who turn pre-loved goods into statement pieces, mingle with artists with little hammers, on the lookout for unusual ceramics to turn into brilliant mosaics.

Find your creativity in Camberwell shopping precinct

Creating art and crafts is a wonderful pastime, which brings young and old together to turn brilliant imaginings into real life objects – and you’ll find all your creating needs at Riot Art & Craft.

Riot Art & Craft is an Aladdin’s cave of art supplies, ranging from paints and canvases, to modelling clay and wood, to lino cutting tools and print making tools.

Once you’ve completed your masterpiece, you’ll want to frame it, so wander down to Camberwell Framing Shop, where the professional framers will help you find the best frame for your piece.

Of course, art is within everything we surround ourselves with, from our vases and photo frames, to our table settings, to the tray into which we drop our keys when we walk through the door.

Camberwell shopping precinct has a host of homewares stores, packed with creative and beautiful objects for your home. Most Wanted Interiors offers a range of unique handcrafted furnishings, and Provincial Home Living has perfected the art of creating a home with stunning accessories for the house.

Beauty is within the reach of everyone at Camberwell shopping precinct. While Camberwell Antique Centre is the place to pick up something unique and vintage, Beyond’s Homewares stocks some great affordable pieces.
