Market News

Welcome Stix & Flora

Melbourne based lifestyle brand Stix & Flora has started operating at the Flower Market on Thursdays.

The mother and daughter duo behind it, Jules and Em, design and create beautiful handcrafted pieces including wooden vases and planters.

Jules and Em started the boutique business in a small beach shack on the Mornington Peninsula but because of demand for their products, they have since relocated to a larger studio to produce even more pieces.

Keep an eye out for them in the Flower Market.

Winner announced
