Out and About: Moral Fair Ground @ Federation Square

I met my friend Kemmy in the city at Moral Fair Ground Ethical Market at Federation Square today. The weather was pretty inclement and windy. Big shame. I know many of the stall holders from other markets and events and it would have been great to have more foot traffic. But hey! There is still tomorrow, so try and get down there to support people who are doing their damndest to change the world. Great bunch…

I want this radio! Completely hand built from a number of gorgeous sustainable Javanese timbers, the Magno Wooden Radio is a piece of fine art.

This is the Etiko stall where you can buy cool and ethically produced footwear, tees and underwear. Really edgy  designs.

Seven Women work with disadvantaged women in Nepal to produce a range of softie products. Volunteer, Laura (pictured below), is tireless in her support for Seven Women.

Designer Kaitlyn, (above) works in partnership with traditional carvers and potters in Bali for her initiative Koa. Loved her modern colours and designs!

Shhh! I did buy some things. I left Kemmy in the sustainable Eco food tent watching cooking demonstrations. She was so happy.
