Christmas Markets, Summer shopping - our markets line-up

It’s summer, so if I’m not at hanging out at the beach then I’m mooching around a good market...preferably both! Over the next month we’ll be at a load of great markets with our range of ethically-made, splashproof beach, tote bags and kids bags!!

If you’re in the market - ‘scuse the pun - to cross off some Christmas or holiday shopping for your family, for your friends, or let’s be more honest, for yourself, then come along and take a walk around these great independent design markets.

There will certainly be more Christmas shopping markets as we get closer to Christmas, and we’re hoping to get back into Bondi Markets sometime soon (they’ve been pretty full lately!) so drop me a line jo@emptybags.com if you have any questions about where we’ll be.
