Weekend Market Review
Well it's such a wonderfully busy weekend just past. We had two markets on. The first on Saturdays was the Sister's Markers Market at the Brunswick Town Hall. A wonderful little market set in the middle of busy Sydney Road, the Sister's Makers market provides a day full of shopping and live entertainment.
I must admit that in the past i have been known to spend a bit of my market takings samplling all the wonderful treats including devine cupcakes and chocolate-filled pretzels, and Saturday was no expection.
For this market i brought along my brand new display stand. Made from some old pickets i found in the garden shed and a plank of pine board from my dads farm. I just finished it in time for the market, and dispite my horrible carpentry skill i was, i was stoked with the way it turned out.
It worked a treat on the day and provided to be the perfect display for by jewellery busts and a great was for showcase my designs.
On Sunday we headed off once again for Healesville. This is fast becoming one of my favorite markets. Run by Craft Markets Australia and held at the local racecourse, the Healesville market provides a wonderful mix of fashion, food and fun for all ages.
The Healesville patrons are truely wonderful, desipe the cold, overcaste conditions and the possiblity of the shower or two, many still came out for the market. I had such a wonderful response to all my collections, i will absloutely be commiting myself to these market for the come Spring and Christmas season.
Next stop Mornington for the Easter Market.
