Huckleberry Market


Huckleberry Market is the new kid on the Melbourne market scene, specialising in boutique and hand made items for babies and children!

We began as a one off market to raise funds for a special little girl called Holly, but the response from customers and stallholders was so strong that we just had to keep going!
Our aim is simple Collect the best in boutique and handmade items for babies and children under one roof, have fun doing it and lend a helping hand at the same time.

Our stallholders offer boutique and handcrafted goodies that range from T-shirts to softies, play rugs to beautiful quilts, toys, jewellery, hats and hair accessories; almost anything you can dream of (and even things you didn’t know you wanted). If you’re after something special for your little one chances are you will find at Huckleberry Market.

And the shopping experience is just as much about the kids as it is the adults pushing them around in prams! Every Huckleberry Market will have some form of entertainment for the kids be it a face painting fairy, balloon twisting clown, gardening activities or craft. It’s all about the littlies!

Some of our regular stallholders include: Piccaninny Rugs, Life is like a blanket, tiger baby, baby laila, Me shirts and Jaybee baby. All showcasing such beautiful handmade products.

Badge Bliss

Life takes you on many journeys and some like ours are done on a whim.
We bought a house unexpectedly, sold our home of 23 years and moved a 1000 kilometers away from family and friends all in the space of 2 months - because I wanted to renovate an old weatherboard home. I’ve always enjoyed craft and home decorating.
After 5 years we can’t imagine living anywhere else – we have the home of our dreams.

Taking a giant leap of faith like that has given me the confidence to start another of my dreams – my own business so Badge Bliss was launched earlier this year.
We make handmade fun, cute, sassy and whimsical badges and fridge magnets in 3 sizes.

Inexpensive and collectable our items are suitable for all occasions - birthdays, Easter, Christmas, thank you gifts, wedding bonbomiere, baby showers, supporting a cause, promoting an event or just to add some colour to your life.

With a wide range of readymade items we can also also personalize some of our designs with your name, date, message etc.
But we not only make badges – we also make keyrings, pocket mirrors and bookmarks. Our range of hair clips and pocket watch pendants are exclusive to Badge Bliss.
I love every stage of our business – ordering supplies, sourcing art work, creating our items and changing the look of things to make them indivuial and unique - but my favourite time is gift wrapping orders to send out to our lovely customers.

What can you expect when you shop at Badge Bliss – quality items with excellent service.
