Artisans’ Nest, located in Newtown, brings the magic of handmade products, designs and work of
local artisans and makers to a concept store, right at your doorstep.
When COVID 19 hit, thousands of businesses were negatively impacted. Local markets were also
closed down, leaving hundreds of small, local businesses without selling outlets.
In September 2020, three micro-business owners and friends (from hosting market stalls next to each other), sat down and brainstormed ideas of how to keep their businesses alive. Markets, trade shows and events were their businesses’ lifeline and now that they are all on-hold or shut down, these women needed to diversify and fast.
Enter Artisans’ Nest – the brainchild of Newtown local, Julia as well as Teresa and Stephie.
A one stop shop featuring a mix of homewares, stationary, jewellery, ceramics, skincare, gifts and much more, all locally designed and made in small batches.
With the help of locals, friends, generous souls and family, the three owners were able to source their producers, design the shop, paint it, fit it out, build shelving and open the doors to this gorgeous space that hits all the senses, perfectly.
