“To create a new piece every day is almost as essential to me as breathing!”
Green Gecko Jewellery began with Pam’s love for gemstones and all things shiny. Qualifying as a gemologist, Pam paired this expertise with her creative side, designing and producing by hand every piece in the Green Gecko Jewellery portfolio. Sourcing natural gemstones from around the world to use together with glass, metal and Swarovski crystal beads are used to create unique and different stock.

Pretty Vixen

A Plus Market (Preston)

Pretty Vixen is the new label from one of A Plus Market’s first ever stallholder’s, Bec from Parlour Vintage.

After a huge response to online sales of her up-cycled and handmade skirts she was selling from her personal collection, Bec saw an obvious gap in the market for her style of fashion. With variations on the ballerina style skirt ranging from Rockabilly, Gothic, Classic Lolita and Mori Girl to  BoHo peasant skirts, women of all ages have been snapping up these skirts.

A Plus Market (Preston)

Handmade cards are a beautiful way to express your gratitude, happiness and all and any greetings you wish to share. A Plus Market this Saturday May 31 has a lovely range available from Addicted to Cards.

Leanne the maker loves making cards, she says ” I think I have had this addiction since my early teens”. Leanne would buy cards and thinking they were to beautiful to use, so kept hold of them instead. She started buying two at a time, so she could give one and keep one to admire. Then of course she started creating. Thankfully so as now others can enjoy these delights.

Leanne makes a range of cards for many different wishes, experience and events and can also make them to order. Leanne runs workshops to share her tricks of the trade and also sells beautifully coordinated craft supplies.

Come along, support a local maker and buy some beautifully hand crafted cards for your friends and loved ones.

If you like your jewellery bright, fun with a bucket load of charm, then Bok Bok B’gerk is for you.

Necklaces, brooches and earrings form the core range, though there are some cute little girl hair clips, that are so adorable that they could add a fun accent for a more playful hairdo.

The colourful pieces are painted by hand. I really like these pieces and find the asymmetrical earrings particularly charming.

You definitely don’t want to miss the Ballarat A Plus Market as in addition to this great local handmade jewellery there is a fabulous range of plus size clothing on offer.

Though, if you really can’t make it to the market this weekend, Bok Bok B’gerk is available online and offers a really fun subscription service – Earring of the month club, You can get a 3, 6 or 12 month subscription and receive a pair of wooden laser cut earrings each month for the duration of your subscription.

Some months the earrings will be of the hand painted/resin variety, other months they will be plain alder wood.  One thing is for sure though, you’ll never receive the same pair of earrings twice no matter how long you subscribe for.
What a great gift, awesome and FUN!

So see you on Saturday?

Bella Belle Nail Couture

February 2014 A Plus MArket - Frankston
I’ve mostly avoided nail polish as I’ve got to admit in some respects,
I’m a bit of a hippy. My perception of nail polish was mainly negative,
thinking it full of nasty chemicals, unethically mass produced and the rest. That perception is now obliterated as I recently came across
Bella Belle Logo

Bella Belle Nail Couture.

I’ve got to say I was really surprised to find a local producing a range of polishes that are

Hand Made, Non Toxic, Vegan Friendly and Cruelty Free!

Bella Belle Nail Couture is headed by Vicky a local mum and nail technician with over 14 years experience in the industry. Vicky has created a range of nail polish that is free of Toluene, Formaldehyde, TSF resin, Camphor and  DPB, all of which are toxins that are regularly found in mainstream polishes on the market today.

This is one of the polishes before being blended.

A Pretty Posy Polish before being blended.

Each polish is individually made, hand blended by Vicky in it’s own bottle.

These polishes are fun and colourful, very unique and totally guilt free!
There’s even one that changes colour!
Bella Belle Nail Couture is available online here or here
and at the upcoming

I never imagined that such a product existed and I’m so glad it does.

I am so pleased that Bella Belle will be joining us at A Plus Market – Frankston!

Come along meet Vicky, and try some of her lovely polish at

special A Plus Market day prices!
