Crafty Hearts - Perth Makers Market Stallholder FEATURE

Get your Craft on!

Markets are THE hot new thang in Perth right now, from specialty cuisine markets to vintage clothes markets, and with a little something for everyone, they are taking Perth by storm!

Markets are an amazing way to spend the day outdoors with the fam discovering new local Perth businesses. One of these local businesses is Crafty Hearts, appearing at markets all over Perth, with 2019 being their 3 rd year at the highly-coveted Perth Makers Market.

The friendly faces behind Crafty Hearts are Amie Bertone and Sue Darch, who bonded over their love of crafting 7 years ago and formed a rock-solid friendship. After attending numerous crafting workshops together and a barrage of friends begging them to create custom-made products for them, they decided to turn their dreams into reality and launch Crafty Hearts!

Whilst you may not think you need craft in your life right now, I can tell you boy are you wrong!

After a scroll through the ladies’ Instagram feed @craftyhearts_, I am now convinced that no matter what stage of your life you are in, Amie and Sue have something to offer you. Unicorn party décor for your little ones, customized makeup brush or stationary holders for the bathroom or office, Chrissy tree decorations, beautifully-bespoke light boxes, funky storage solutions and my personal fave- hilarious wine glasses - the list goes on!

With their specialty focusing on creating the perfect, unique customized gift, Amie and Sue often spend hours designing flawless products from their customer’s basic ideas. Their products are all 100% hand-made and are therefore each totally unique and one-of-a-kind.

The Crafty Hearts team love the challenge of creating new, never-been-seen-before products for their customers, and with each product fully customizable or personalized, the possibilities for creativity are endless.

One of the on-the-rise trends Amie and Sue have seen recently at Crafty Hearts are brides ordering customized gift boxes to give to their bridesmaids-to-be. Whilst the ladies explain they have had some unusual requests over the years, they have always been able to fulfill their brides desires.

Crafty Hearts are a huge fan of supporting local businesses and source their wares through local suppliers. This helps to guarantee top quality products at affordable prices for their customers. And with customer service the ladies’ top priority, Amie and Sue take pride in creating their customer’s dreams and delivering these in a timely manner.

I’m Cassie, an almost-23-year-old dog mum to one super-naughty jack Russell pup and a Perth girl through and through. One of my favourite places on earth is the beach, having never lived more than a 5-minute drive away!

I have a degree in event management, public relations and tourism and hospitality from Curtin University. My average week consists of planning killer events ranging from charity balls to product launches at the fabulous Known Associates Events. When I’ve got some downtime on my hands you’ll find me lazing around binging the hottest new thang on Netflix or totally engrossed in whatever paperback thriller I can get my hands on.

I absolutely live and breathe events and love getting the latest scoop on what’s happening on Perth. As an event manager myself, I can tell you there’s always something exciting going on in our city!
