Kyogle Craft Creations
Not Your Average Gift Shop
Kyogle Craft Creations, and its owner Karen, have brought a unique concept to Kyogle. Previously hidden artistic talents, are now celebrated and snapped up from the shelves — at a reasonable price.
Karen’s business model allows a win-win dynamic; the shelves are rented to artists while Karen manages the shop and sales, leaving the artist to do what they love best.
The range includes bookmarks, earrings, handmade kid’s clothes, indigenous art, forged iron, crochet, candles, hand-weaving, an extensive selection of bolder opals and spirit jewellery, and exquisitely crafted quilts with new creations constantly arriving.
Whether you are after a gift, seeking to experience the local vibe, looking for inspiration or a place to showcase your artistic talents, Kyogle Craft Creations has it all.

Linda May Designs
Multi-faceted Art & Gifts
My name is Linda Cooper, I am a local born artist, living and working in the Kyogle area. I have dabbled in arts and crafts all my life and started my business in the 90s.
Linda May Designs evolved with my interest in art and an obsession for alcohol inks and resin. I fell in love with the vibrant colours and the versatility of the medium; firstly creating jewellery then branching out to platters and framed artworks.
My products can be found at Feather & Stone in Kyogle and on Facebook. I regularly have a stall at Casino Golf Club and Bangalow markets. My pieces are also sold on Etsy and in shops in Queensland and South Australia.
In the future, I look forward to discovering new and exciting styles to create unique works of art and expand my business.
