HANDCRAFTED jewellery, cushions and stationery are just a few of the items up for grabs today at the second Bendigo Design Market.

The Winter Pop Up Market will be held at Dudley House on View Street from 9am until 1pm. 

The market is the brainchild of local designer and student Jenna Little, who is organising four markets in Bendigo throughout the year.

Ms Little said the winter market was more exclusive than the first pop up market, held in March.

"Because of the venue it's a bit smaller," Ms Little said of the market.

"It was a long process (selecting sellers) - there were a lot of applications this time around so I went through them all and decided what was best for buyers."

Ms Little selected stallholders based on the quality of their merchandise and how established their brand was.

She also made sure there was a good variety of products for sale.

Ms Little said the first design market had been a great success and she was expecting the second to draw a big crowd.

"I got great feedback from the first market," she said.

"The creative community has been really supportive.

"There's a great variety of stalls and great location.

"I've got a stall there tomorrow and it's going to be a great day."

Ms Little's brand, j lee, consists of jewellery, specialising in earrings and bracelets made from glass and resin.

In addition to organising the market and running her business, Ms Little is completing her Certificate IV in Business Management at Bendigo TAFE and works full-time at Workspace.
