Perth Upmarket founder, Justine Barsley, moved to Perth back in 2006 and found that whilst there were hosts of creative people, they were hard to find. She found it difficult to find a regular high quality market to sell her own designs and from this evolved the concept of Perth Upmarket.
Perth Upmarket brings together over 150 of Perth’s talented artists, designers, stylists, craftspeople and gourmets all under one roof. The product mix is diverse ranging from handmade clothing, cupcakes, wall art, cards, homewares, jewellery to skin care products. The market allows Perth shoppers who appreciate the handmade to connect with the talented creators.
Established in 2008, Perth Upmarket quickly established itself as Perth’s premier quarterly market for handcrafted wares. Due its popularity, in 2010 Perth Upmarket moved from the Perth Town Hall to the beautiful, more spacious and more accessible Winthrop Hall which is part of the University of Western Australia. In addition to Upmarket’s regular quarterly event, the Perth Upmarket team also runs two Wedding Upmarkets each year and pop up events across Western Australia.
We support the Starlight Children’s Foundation.
Perth Upmarket is pleased to have partnered with the Starlight Children’s Foundation since inception in 2008. In this time we have raised over $30,000 to help seriously ill children.
