Well, I did my first ever market stall and survived. Woo hoo!
Thanks heaps to Craft Victoria for letting me participate in their special New Craft market. The 2nd last one for the year! It was a hoot. And a BIG thank you to all those came down and said hi – and even bought stuff! Wowee. That was really nice. Thanks also to the lovely Stefan for giving up his precious day off to help me set up & pack down etc. He was a godsend. I ended up meeting loads of lovely people there, both behind the stalls and in front. No dickheads all day. Amazing.
The Coburg Night Market is next one up. It’s on the four Fridays before Xmas and I am doing 3 out of 4 of those nights. OMG!
It’s coming up fast. Better get cracking on my Coburg tea towels and aprons!! Oh and there will be Tee Shirts too… and maybe a new cushion…!
The market line up is huge! Lots of quality food stalls, craft beers, good coffee and very reasonable live music too. I even faced one of my biggest fears for this bleeding market, and was photographed in a promo for MX magazine yesterday. Eeek! Just suck it up I said. It’ll be in print one night next week. Too scared to look.
Another great thing that happened this week is that Michelle from Davies and Son (in Hampton) is now stocking my Pin Tin Cushion & a couple of the Candy Cushions. Yay! I’m so pleased. She has such a superb store full of beautiful handmade, vintage inspired things. I highly recommend going in there for some Christmas shopping for all those on the south side. Very reasonably priced too!
What else? Oh yes. I have a really exciting project coming up in December, that involves a pop-up shop in East Brunswick. Stay tuned for more details next week. It will be F.U.N.
Finally, this weekend will be a big one for the Bourke family. 10 year old race horse, Another Prelate, is racing this Saturday at Sandown.
Fingers crossed he puts on a good show! Back it each way and you’ll probably get some money back. Dear old dad would be rapt to see that he is still going. I hope he is watching it all with a heavenly beer in hand.
