OUR mission statement

MADE ON THE LEFT was founded in 2008 by independent designers to support Western Australian creative talent. We hold bi-annual handmade craft markets to showcase local designers.

Being on the left hand side of Australia no longer

means you'll be at a disadvantage.

Our aim is to support all creative designers and events showcasing independent labels. MOTL is a not-for-profit, non-partisan organisation. You may wonder why we promote other markets besides MOTL; it’s because it’s not about us, its about you; the buyers and sellers of indie wares. Here at the blog, you’ll discover up to date information about our latest market, the low-down on some of Perth’s emerging talents, other opportunities for artists and designers and a little bit of fun stuff too. It’s all right here… welcome!

New Guest Blogger : Tara from The Ginger Fox

Hey there, howdy and hi Made on the Left readers, my name is Tara Fox and I own The Ginger Fox an ever growing collection of delectable vintage clothing and accessories. At some point in my lengthy web travels I stumbled across the Made On The Left website and was so to happy to have found a site that supports and celebrates local creativity and good ole DIY. Now I am tickled pink to have the opportunity to be a guest blogger helping to unearth some of WA's hidden crafty creatures.
A little about me, I began as a Murdoch graduate in Marine Science and Biological science which lead me to a position in the Department of Water as essentially an environmental scientist. Almost three years and one thought provoking jaunt around South America later, I knew the life of science wasn't for me. I hung up my survey khakis and threw myself into a hobby which had always bordered on obsession, the continued and endless search for THE perfect vintage piece. I now have to-die-for vintage apparel coming out of my ears as well as a proud collection of vintage jewellery, handbags, homewares, shoes and menswear.
I stock quality items found locally and an even larger proportion imported from the US and UK. You can find my vintage treasures at the Perth Cultural Centre Markets every Saturday from 10am to 5pm. I also have a range of late 60's jewellery stocked in Wild Lily Empire on Hampden Rd, Nedlands and Oxford Street, Leederville. In addition, I upload photos regularly (some gorgeous ones from TJM Photography and some not so awesome ones taken by me) to my blog and facebook page so if your eyeballing a particular piece just drop me a line.
Well that's about all for now but I will be back soon with a some info on lush local treats. In the meantime I'll leave you with my latest made-in-Perth (in a way haha) find, my ridiculously cute Maltese Shi Tzu puppy called Indiana Jones, known to his friends as Indy. Byeee
