Y’know here at One Two Tree, we take all things Christmas very seriously; and so when we heard that there was a three-day market dedicated to all things Christmas, you bet that we jumped at the opportunity to be a part of it!
Hailed as the ultimate Christmas shopping destination, the Big Design Market has continually brings together the best independent designers from both Australia and overseas. With over 230 brands, including Magpie Goose, Kester Black, Marc Martin, Leah Jackson, Erin Lightfoot, Bridget Bodenham taking part in this year’s event, walking away empty-handed will not be an option. What’s more, you can be sure that all the gifts you pick up here will not only be unique, but also ethically and sustainably manufactured— how’s that for checking all the right boxes?
Held just in time for Christmas, the Big Design Market is famous for drawing exceptionally large crowds each year, with more than 50,000 shoppers turning up at the Melbourne event last year. So if you love Christmas as much as we do, get in early and come have a chat. We hope to see you there!

Next week we’re taking one of the biggest leaps we’ve ever taken since starting our little Aussie company. We’re exhibiting at Life Instyle in Melbourne, and boy has it been a crazy few weeks of prep for the big show!
We make no secret of how proud we are to be an all-Australian company. Sourcing sustainably grown Australian plywood, and manufacturing locally in Sydney and Melbourne. Anyone who’s ever navigated the tricky terrain of an Australian-made business will know what we mean when we say it’s not always easy going. Costs are high for our gorgeous wood products, and making them viable for wholesale is tricky. But with the support we’ve had from a few key stockists around Australia, we’ve built up the confidence to make the investment, and exhibit in a trade fair. After all, we’ve been making our beloved Christmas tree for three years now, and haven’t done it the justice of showing it off properly!
Not to mention, we’re super excited about this next chapter for One Two Tree. With our expanded product range including brand new paper and textile wall art, the Art Hanger, our popular Message Boards and everything else between.
We can’t wait to meet and (hopefully) partner with unique Australian stockists who share our passion for sustainability and Australian-made products. Come and see us upstairs at Stand 2157 and let’s make some magic happen!
