Under The Oak is located in Reibey Street Ulverstone. The doors were opened in December 2011 to sell an extensive array of beautiful, 100% Tasmanian handmade products. There are over 45 designers in store with products ranging from jewellery, art, handbags, homewares, clothing, children’s items and much more.
Owner Prue Dent is always on the lookout for variety and new designers. Her mission is to support developed and emerging Tasmanian designers in their craft. Under The Oak don’t take any commission from sales, giving 100% of income back to the relevant designers each month.
Full-Time Market: Under the Oak
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.

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.
