Shoppers flock to grab unique Christmas gifts

COBB and Co Museum was the ultimate destination for Christmas shopping with more than 50 local artisans selling their wares.

Hundreds packed the museum for the annual Hand Made Under the Stars market last night which artisan Glen Wardle from The Glass Potty described as "the pinnacle of the year".

"I love them. I think everyone here waits for this market," Mr Wardle said.

This was Mr Wardle's third time at the seventh annual market selling his handmade glass and pottery wares.

"I started making it because I used to buy pottery ash trays and I thought 'I can make these'," he said.

"So I started making them, then I had too many so I had to start selling them and that is how it all started."

Many people left with arms full of bags with gifts for themselves and others including Jean Wagstaff.

"Unique Christmas gifts, that is what it is about, finding something different," she said.

Shoppers enjoyed a glass of wine, food and live music while browsing the stalls which included everything from hand made treats and organic skin care to home decor, jewellery and clothing.
