Gotta love a bit of local content. Until recently I had no idea there were so many excellent crafters in Brisbane. I don't remember how I found the BrisStyle blog, but it's a regular read for me now, and an inspirational one, too.

BrisStyle is a cooperative group of artists, crafters and artisans all living in the Brisbane area (Australia), who sell their wares on Etsy.com, the biggest online marketplace for all things handmade.

The BrisStyle blog will keep you up to date with all the latest news and products, upcoming local markets, and behind the scenes views of our many talented members. We also hold regular giveaways on this blog each month, so follow us, or subscribe to stay in the loop!

As well as telling you about this top-class read, I have an ulterior motive: by mentioning their regular give-away here (where a member or two donates some of their wares for the cause) I get a second entry in this month's draw! But now that I've told you, you're all going to rush in and enter yourselves, thereby lessening my chances!

One of the things I most enjoy about BrisStyle is the list of upcoming markets that BrisStylettes are appearing at. I've discovered markets all over town that I never knew existed -- including a very charming one just a ten minute drive away in Grovelly -- and they do a great job of keeping the listing up to date. Hooray for BrisVegas!
