Meemoh Handmade Toys

Duck Egg Blue Babooshka

Duck Egg Blue Babooshka

Created by three Mums living in Byron Bay, Meemoh offers kids stuff that is natural, individual and fun. When decorating our children’s rooms, we found that the choice in the commercial market was limited. Our aim was, therefore, to create natural and quality products that appeal to both children and adults alike. We use 100% cotton fabrics and all products are lovingly handmade by our selves here in Byron Bay. We try to keep the designs simple as the fabrics speak for themselves.

Meemoh loves to work with an eclectic mix of vintage inspired and sourced fabrics in vibrant colours and simple designs, which are fun and fresh and will stand the test of time. So when we are not running around after our kids, we are designing, sewing and working on new ideas for the range.
Meemoh offers ranges for both girls and boys, from newborn and up.

You can find meemoh toys at the Byron Bay Markets or look at their range of products online at

Heart Beat Designs from Byron Bay

April 6, 2009

 Nadia’s work is as varied as it is beautiful.  This is only a small sample. To view her gallery go to



The feature tiles from Heartbeat Designs are designed and hand made by Nadia who settled in Byron Bay in 1980 to raise her family after travelling and living in various countries, particularly in India.  She has always been captivated by the visual world and has taken photographs since she was 14 years old. She has brought together her love of Nature, colour and photography with a completely unique technique which she applies to the creation of beautiful feature tiles using organic materials such as flowers, bark, and leaves – the leaves of the bodhi tree (ficus religiosa) figure in a lot of her work as a symbol of wisdom and consciousness – as well as acrylic, water colours, natural ochres and her photographs. A lot of her work is layered in a way where one’s imagination may unfold.





Baby Blessing



Heartbeat tiles can be set into bathroom or kitchen walls, built into furniture such as table tops, mounted into stone walls, the possibilities are endless.  The small tiles make great coasters.  Heartbeat tiles look beautiful displayed in their own right as art pieces, hanging on a wall or free standing on the edge of a bath tub or a window sill.

Locally produced Australian Bush Spices.

March 24, 2009

Scott is a regular at the Byron markets and comes from a food background. He is one of those people that always has a smile on their face.  There can never be too many smilers!! Australian Bush Spices is Scotts other baby!
About Scott;

Australian Bush Spices commenced Byron market trading in January 2008.
Since then Scott Foster has established his locally produced spice blends as a locals favourite.
“My aim was to source out the best of our native herbs and spices and package them in easy to use stylish tins. Bringing the native bushfood’s into everyday style of cooking was the idea, to make them really user friendly. We have packaged these 80g tins with full instructions for use on the back, a recommendation for a style of Australian wine and a link to a website with loads of recipe ideas. The spices have 12 months shelf life and are in fully sealed bags inside the tins so they make for the perfect gift here or overseas. With the added incentive of being gluten free, preservative and sugar free, they are a healthy gift also.”

Scott Foster, March 2009
