Warburton Handmade - Featuring only Warburton Valley locally produced items

A fantastic addition for the Warburton Waterwheel - featuring only locally produced craft, music, greeting cards, clothing and fresh produce from The Warburton Valley. 

Based on a shared space system, local producers of these products each rent a 'cubicle' or small space (approx 40cm x 40cm) at the Warburton Visitor Information Centre. This format provides visitors to the Warburton Valley a fantastic range of local products AND the ability for local producers to have low overheads, reducing costs for themselves and also purchasers of their products.

Not only do you get original and local product not found in the chain superstores or out of a container from overseas - you are also supporting local micro businesses, local employment and benefiting our entire community. Come and check it out. We've added a sample of 'Warburton Handmaders' below :)

  • Hi Honey, I'm Home! A return to Vintage Fashion - Karen Ph 0432 272 081
    If you knew me, you would understand why I make clothes!! My love of Fashion was introduced to me by my Mother (An Avon Lady with lots of lipsticks to try!!) and her fabulous Dressing table with 3 mirrors. I would spend hours dressing up and parading around wearing her and my paternal grandmothers clothes. I never had a Barbie Doll, but I had Skipper, Tammy, Chrissie and Giggles!!! I would make their new clothes and then made my own from an early age. I would OP-Shop until I dropped...
  • Living Lightly - Vintage Soy and Beeswax Candles - Ph 0417 164 857
    Living Lightly is a small business owned and run by two women who feel a natural connection to the earth. We love creating these candles because they bring a simple beauty and calm to daily living and a sacredness to special occasions, without adding toxins to our air. We find it satisfying to know that they are fashioned completely from natures bounty. We wouldn’t have it any other way.

    We are both mothers who value family, health, well-being, our community and our precious planet.

    I'm a stay at home Mum with a wonderful partner and four beautiful kids who I adore more than anything!
    We live in the beautiful Yarra Valley, Victoria, Australia.
    It's always been important to me to be home with my kids, to attend any and all school activities that they want me at and to be able to take them to school and also pick them up after school. I've always loved jewellery and sparkly things and with my four kids having unique names it was impossible to find anything personalised!

Clothing for the dolls is also made using all natural fibres. I love to combine new materials with vintage fabrics and often finish clothing with vintage buttons, laces and trims.
