Christmas! A well deserved rest, precious time spent with family and friends, and hopefully some lovely, decadent food for our much valued stall holders, and customers alike. A big and sincere thank you for making 2010 a successful and inspiring year for us at the market, we have so much excitement in store for next year, and look forward to seeing you in February, as we shift into the first of our seasonal markets, and celebrate Summer.

Merry Christmas!

We wish you a merry Christmas...

Here we go...our very last, and very best event for 2010. The season is well and truly upon us, and our December event is here just in time to perk you up for the festivities to come, as we celebrate all things local and lovely!

Really and truly, this market has everything you need to complete (or start!) your Christmas shopping. We have a nice cluster of market favourites and their beautiful and super popular wares...Emily Snadden’s jewellery, Shauna Mayben’s terrariums, Red Wren’s linen to mention a few. We also have some terribly exciting brand new designers we’re really proud and excited to be showcasing. Kelly Smith from Birdy and Me joins us for the first time, with her whimsical and wonderful illustrations also Emmeline, with her adorable hedgehogs and other special softies for little ones. Make sure you check out our 12 days of Christmas blog posts for a sneak peek of their work and all the other clever people at our December market.

We’d also like to make mention of something very exciting taking place on Dec 12th. Two market stall holders Lyn Hellewell – pinnigan and Narelle Badalassi - Ruby Victoria Letterpress will be holding a mini book launch for an exciting publication, a hard cover lifestyle and handicraft book entitled handmade living – a designer collective.

This is a unique and beautiful hard cover book showcasing the talents of handmade designers, artisans and craftspeople from all over Australia. Unique in its design, the book features over 70 gorgeous projects and inspirational ideas that both showcase Australian talent and offer readers of all crafting levels the opportunity to create something whimsically precious and simply wonderful. Congratulations to both Lyn and Narelle, for being featured in such a worthwhile book...we’ve also heard a little whisper that there might be a surprise giveaway for market customers in conjunction with the launch!

Don’t forget to head upstairs on Sunday too...not only have we fitted in another 10 fabulous stall holders up there, but we are also holding a little competition of our own you might like to enter, particularly if you like to shop, for free that is...

Look forward to seeing you all there, and good luck to our brilliant bunch of stall holders as they prepare for Sunday.
