Oh so RETRO! Markets step back in time

30 September, 2015

Retro lounge with yellow cushions at teh Old Bus Depot Markets for theme event Retro Depot (stallholder Irena Danish)We’re getting set to show how everything old is new again, well back in fashion at the very least, at our popular Retro Depot in October event on Sunday 11 October. If you love the bright colours of the 60s and 70s, mid-century furniture, funky retro clothing, and macramé, this is the markets day for you. Retro Depot in October is our last retro event for 2015, and you can expect a celebration of all things retro cool. Find your groove browsing fashion, homewares, furniture, jewellery and accessories that evoke a sense of times gone by, and see just how great these things look in today’s world.

Local Annette Boyd, from Annette Boyd Art and Design, is taking part in Retro Depot in October showcasing her handmade macramé. Annette uses natural materials to create beautiful handmade macramé sculptures, hanging pots and kooky owls. The macramé hanging pot holders are particularly popular at Retro Depot as they’re made in bright 60s colours, and are very much on trend right now.

Retro Depot in October will feature many other retro themed stallholders such as old favourite Irena McKillop of Ritzy Bits, who is on board again with her quality retro pieces including quality mid-century furniture. Let’s go Retro!
