Handmade Market

Another lovely handmade market this weekend.  A beautiful autumn weekend, with plenty of great conversation.  A big thank you to Penni, Sue and Marg who put a lot time and effort into creating such a charming market.

Our sincere apologies to customer who may have come looking for us on Sunday.  Sadly we were unable to fulfil our commitment of the two days.  However I am sure that you would have been enthralled by the other stallholders.
We look forward to seeing you next at Mathilda's market, Saturday 17 July.

The Market and What Women Want

The launch of our new reversible aprons was a wonderful success.  It is always pleasing to offer clients new products and a unisex line.  For those of you who missed out we will have more on offer at the upcoming Handmade Market 15 and 16 May. 

An exciting and frantic day for Meg and myself, not sure we will opt to do a market and function on the one day again.  The market never fails to disappoint and we had many new customers and return clients, which is always pleasing.  The atmosphere created by Holly and Shannon is always warm and welcoming at the Masonic Temple.

I felt extremely envious of the women at the Make a Wish Foundation Fundraiser - "What Women Want" at Moorilla, the wine and high tea looked absolutely devine and I could have easily gone and indulged in having my hair styled and a manicure.  Most importantly it was great to be a part of and see funds being raised for the fantastic work the Make a Wish Foundation do.

On another note it was lovely to catch up and have a chat with our fellow stall holders. With the emotion of the afternoon and the impact of hearing some of the stories from the Make a Wish Foundation, it brings me to make mention of a quote from a book I am currently reading;

"May we always support one another and wish each other greatness."

Overall it was a very successful and enjoyable day.
