Established in Melbourne in 2012, The Big Design Market made its highly anticipated debut in Sydney at the Royal Hall of Industries at Moore Park last weekend.
Independent designers had the opportunity to showcase their products and visitors were not short on choice, with thousands of beautiful, innovative and quality goods on offer.
Knowing how hard it is to buy for ‘the man that has everything’, we found five products at the markets that would appeal to the organiser, the fashionista, the cyclist, the décor lover and that guy with the big set of keys.
