Quality Australian Handmade Gift wares
Opened in April 2017, The Old Auction House Handmade Shop stocks a wide range of quality, Australian handmade brands and artists from the local Macedon Ranges area as well as across Australia. The shop stocks 80+ artists and designers in a diverse range of mediums, styles, and products, so you are sure to find gifts for the whole family.
As makers ourselves we believe in sourcing high quality handmade items from other small makers to allow access to high street retail from brands that often cannot get a foothold. As the shop is ever evolving every visit will feature new items and artists for you to discover.
Among our specialities are quality Australian made Australiana items, that are ideal mementos for travellers wanting a reminder of their experiences in Australia, and also perfect for locals travelling or gifting overseas. With around 1/4 of our makers from the Macedon Ranges area there is bound to be a local maker of interest for travellers.
We source quality Australian handmade items to make you an indoor craft market in the Macedon Ranges that is open 7 days...
Our handmade items also focus strongly on heirloom quality children's gifts and toys, made to last and grow with enquiring minds. All toys are created with long-standing traditional methods to capture imaginations and enhance play and comply to relevant safety standards.
The variety of styles and materials in our range of Home wares encompasses glass wares from the precinct's on-site Glass Art Studio, through to timber, ceramics, and even a few non traditional materials that could only have been thought up by true artists.
Sourcing a wide range of traditional and non-traditional Jewellery items is a particular interest for our handmade store. With silver smiths, polymer clay artists, glass artists, and textile artists in store in our jewellery section all styles and occasions are catered for.
The Old Auction House works closely with all our makers which allows us to provide our buyers with custom items to match sizing requests, or colours, and styles. If you can't find your perfect item we can find a maker to create it for you!
