Further Insight & Opinion
Also known as the Blue Shed, the Waterfront Craft Market and Wellness Centre is set away from the V&A Waterfront‘s main mall, in a separate building next to the CD Wherehouse.
Don’t let the word “wellness” fool you – this isn’t a gym inside a shopping center. Instead, it’s two connected buildings with different focuses.
The Blue Shed is similar to the nearby Red Shed, and larger – although seemingly less trafficked when I visited. There are a number of craft stalls inside the shed, with objects such as handmade clothing and guitars made of recycled materials.
Appropriately, the Wellness Centre offers products and treatments to “enhance and balance” your mind, body, soul and lifestyle. These include health and beauty products, Indian head massage, herbal treatments, tarot card readings, candles and charms.
The Blue Shed is open 9:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. every day.
