A Full-Time Market Place in Ulverstone

Under The Oak provides another opportunity (other than markets) for designers to retail and display their work.  When you buy something from Under The Oak you know you have a quality handmade article and you are also supporting local designers and artists.


 

Under The Oak offers designers the chance to display and retail their work in a well-located shop five days a week.  Designers hire a space in the shop rather than pay a commission on sales.  Since opening last year, the store has been very popular with locals and tourists alike.  Prue is also considering an online store.

Designers: Contact Prue Dent

If you’re an artist or hand-crafter, living in Tasmania and you’re looking to retail your wares, you may like to get in touch with Prue Dent.  She supports anyone from hobbyists to full-time designers.  Prior to launching Under the Oak, Prue shopped at many local markets.  She admired the quality of the work and could appreciate the time that went into making each piece.  She thought it would be great if there was somewhere people could go to purchase the items on a regular basis instead of waiting for market days.  And so Under The Oak was born.


 

Under The Oak is an ideal place to buy a unique Tasmanian handmade item for yourself or someone special.  Next time you’re in Ulverstone take a look at all the talent on display.
