Pre-Xmas Market Frenzy

Well it is a busy time in Katie-land right now...

 Niche Market
 I have just come home from Launnie where I attended the Niche Market. And what a market it was! The venue was absolutely packed with punters eager to get their hands on some handmade goodness. At one point on the Friday night, there was even a queue to get in the door! Madness.
The organisers (St Giles) estimate that we had over 6000 people came through over the two-day event which is amazing! So great to see that people are wanting and supporting handmade in such a huge way.
Thank you to everyone who popped by for a chat and a purchase or three(and some extra warm fuzzies from the knowledge that 20% of the purchase price went to St Giles to assist with the provision of serivces and equipment for kiddies with disabilities - Awwwww).

Christmas Craft and Food Market
 No rest for the wicked. This week I am having a stall at the Collegiate Parent's Association Christmas Craft and Food Market. 

The market runs from 4 til 7pm this Friday (26th) and should be a giggle.

Salamanca Market
Finally, my last Salamanca Market before Christmas in on Saturday the 4th of December. Let's hope I can get enough stock made as I think it will be a biggie!

Off to get crafty!

Hello there kittens.

It has been a very long time between posts, and I apologise for my tardiness.

I have, however, been keeping very, very busy with stalls at both Salamanca Market and the Barn Market, filling some HUGE pre-christmas orders for my bricks-and-mortar retailers, as well as trying to fill up the stock boxes for the crazy festive season round of markets and retail sales.

My next big market is the lovely Niche Market up in Launceston on the 19th and 20th of November. I attended this market in August and had a blast, so am looking forward to making the trek north once again.

This time around, the market will be held at The Tramsheds at the Inveresk Railyards.  The market is being held on Friday night (19th Nov)from 4pm til 8 pm and Saturday day (20th Nov)from 10am til 4 pm.

The really great news is that, on Friday night, the bar will be open so we call all sip bubbles whislt we shop and sell!

There is no ATM on site, but as usual I will have Eftpos facilities available at my stall.

I look forward to meeting lots of new lovelies and catching up with old ones.

Oh, and here is a preview of some of the goodies that will be available from WKDN:
fabric button and resin rose earrings ($15)

sterling silver bezel earrings ($35)
glass tile earrings ($25)

And, don't forget, If you are unable to make it to any of my markets or bricks-and-mortar stockists, you can always shop for your favourite WKDN goodies at my online store.
