The Print Society
The Print Society is a creative and inspiring Australian home wares, design and lifestyle bran, committed to accessible design, Australian manufacturing and materials, and doing all they can to look after the environment. Founder Karen Johnston left behind her corporate career in a bid to follow her long standing passion for design and a desire to build a creative brand that balances fresh ideas with value for money for fellow design lovers. We know this makers range of soft furnishings, wall art, objects and accessories, in an amazing summer palette, are going to be popular- think clay pink and butterscotch tones that pop!
The Bleeding Hearts Club
Attention jewellery lovers! If you vibrant accessories, with a strong retro 80’s feel, then we think you are going to love The Bleeding Hearts Club. Makers Alex and Madelyn launched their business at Olive Tree last November as recipients of our Emerging Artist Stall Start up. Since then the girls have become one of our most popular stalls, their range of designs change at every market, and they always sell out fast. Browse their collection of unique dangles and studs – all handmade here in Newcastle. We are sure that you’ll find that perfect pair that will make any outfit go POP!
Partner in business and life, Josh Lawlor and Jason Moore of popular Newcastle based brand Scrubba Body, started the successful enterprise from an initial need for affordable, natural & cruelty free products skin care. When they couldn’t find products they were happy with, they were inspired to create their own start-up. After a lot of investigating and experimentation, their hugely popular Coffee Scrubs and Goats Milk Soaps were born. If summer has taken its toll on your skin then this is the stall to visit on April 6th. They range has now expanded to body oils, natural soaps, and lip balms created from natural ingredients which will leave your skin feeling smooth, cleansed and hydrated.
Louise M Studio
We love bringing the colours of nature into our home! How about you? We think ceramic artist Louise Martiensen vases make perfect vessels for blooms picked from your own garden. Each porcelain vase features unique hand carved patterns and designs. Louise believes that seeing the hand of the maker in a piece is a sign of beauty, and encourages a greater connection to the objects in our lives. We can’t agree more. Meet the maker and start the year support local and handmade.
If you love natural products then meet our new oral crush- LOVEBYT. It’s toothpaste – but not as you know it. Created from premium natural ingredients, Australian essential oils and botanical extracts, to deliver a healthy, sparkling smile – and better still it has no chemical nasties, no testing on our furry friends, is vegan and it’s made right here in Australia.
Roam by The Tea Collective
We are excited to bring one of Newcastle most unique offering to the market landscape. If you haven’t heard about The Tea Collective, you are about to! Becci Fowler founded Tea Collective in 2016 and within six months of opening her beautiful store in Newcastle won Best Tea Menu in Australia and Best Tea House in New South Wales. Becci is a devotee of the importance of ceremony and ritual in our lives and for her, drinking tea is exactly this – an opportunity to pause, to bond with others over a shared sensory experience, which calms the body, but stimulates the mind.And now they have a new venture, “Roam by the Tea Collective” cool little Kombi, which will be serving tasty iced teas at Olive Tree this summer. We can’t wait to try there special blends- think Gingerbread iced chai, Fruits of the Forest, Thai Chili Ginger and Lychee and lavender. We know that the flavours will be fabulous.
The Farmer’s Wife Distillery
If gin’s your thing then get ready to be spoilt! After a long term career in the corporate world, founder Kylie Sepos decided that launching a craft gin distillery would be the next phase of her life. Kylie wanted to be one of the lucky people that get to pursue their passion and craft distilling seemed the perfect fit. Simple?! Not one to do things by halves Kylie read up on all there is to know on gin and distilling, completed a distilling course at Redlands Distillery in Tasmania for hands-on experience and then a course at Melbourne Federation University which focused on the biochemistry side of distilling, and enlisted Tasmanian Peter Bailey to custom build the still to her own design. After an 18-month wait, The Farmer’s Wife was born and the rest as they say is history. Discover this boutique spirit maker at Olive Tree on March 2nd- we know once your try The Farmers Wife’s samples you won’t want to walk away empty handed!
