My last market

I'm really sad to say that I'm doing my last market on Saturday night. Well, the last before this baby is born. I'll be at the launch of Mumatopia, which promises to be a night filled with handmade and environmentally aware products and most exciting, birthy goodness! It's quite symbolic, I think, that my last market is a celebration of birth and community.

I'm almost 32w, my first was born at 34w and my second at 38w, and she was overdone. She had been trying to birth from 35w, so the only thing I'm sure of, is that I have early babies. Meaning, it's time for me to slow down and rest up before I have this babe. Which is weeks away! We're all very excited, it's another homebirth for our family and this will be our last baby. So I'm going to do my best at resting as much as I can.

I'm hoping to be back into the swing of things as soon as I can, and will definitely be taking our newest addition to the Northey Street markets when I feel up to it. In the meantime, I'll be listing all my market stock on etsy so if you've seen something you like at one of the markets I've been at, that's where you can find me for now.

Thanks for your understanding :)

Basket of ducks for market day

I've got this basket of nested ducks, each with three ducklings tucked safely in their wing pocket, ready for market tomorrow. I'll be at Northey Street City Farm in the morning, sharing a stall with Fauve Fibres and looking forward to a morning of good company, music and the Northey Street vibe.

I've got these ducks, chicken cushions, hairclips, clothes and kids mei tais, all made from upcycled, recycled or repurposed materials. If you're about, please come on over and say hi!

Soulful Spring Sounds

A few weeks ago I was accepted as a stall holder for the markets at the very first Soulful Spring Sounds Music Festival at Warrego Wines, near Marburg. It looks to be a wonderful day out. It'll feature a local handmade and organic market plus live jazz, blues and roots acts. Warrego Wines is QLD's only certified organic winery.
