The wait is over! Handmade Craft Market - Sun 19th Feb 2012!!!

Things are heating up in houses across the Central Coast (&beyond) tonight as last minute preparations for tomorrows market get underway.  I can imagine buttons being attached, garments being ironed, swing tags being written, stock being counted & cars being packed.

Yes, tonight is a huge night in the majority of stallholders homes. Unless of course, they're a tad more organised than myself!  I get to about now & realise I have all of the above to do, plus I've forgotten to go to the bank for a cash float! 

(stock ready to go: clockwise from top left - Best Dressed Cookies; Rachelle Rachelle; Little Tee Tee; Just Like Katie)

Regardless of the last minute dramas, each & every one of us is looking forward to a great day of trading tomorrow.  Come & say hi.  We love to meet our customers face-to-face & have a natter.

Don't forget that the venue has changed & we'll be here:

Bridgecoast Stadium, Duffys Road, Terrigal between 10am & 3pm.

See you soon!

In the Spotlight - Aunty Treenie

Aunty Treenie is quite new on the market scene (this will be her 3rd market ever) but she's no novice when it comes to sewing!

Katrina (aka Aunty Treenie herself) makes gorgeous vintage aprons/ tea towels for adults and kids.  I've smiled & giggled through a fair few of her facebook albums - loads of cute prints including rather handsome cowboys, retro caravan scenes, & cute owls.

What I love about Aunty Treenie is that she's thought outside the box & creates Special Needs products such as Peeka Bags and weighted blankets, autism specific products and beautiful adult dignity bibs, made of both classic materials and trendy vintage fabrics.

Stop by Aunty Treenie's stall this Sunday at our Handmade Craft Market.  You'll leave with a smile upon your face after looking at (& purchasing!) heaps of fun items in those delightful fabrics!

In the Spotlight - The Chenille Emporium

The Chenille Emporium is making its debut at the Handmade Craft Market this coming Sunday & we can't wait to pay her a visit.  Why?  Well, chenille is just one of those materials that compels you to touch it, squeeze it, cuddle it (or is that just me?)!

Sue is a woman who love to create & always has done so, doing various crafts over the years.  She fell seriously in love with vintage chenille 12mths ago & has been creating with it for 6mths.  And thus The Chenille Emporium was born!

You'll find a bit of everything at this stall - but each featuring chenille & embellished with whatever vintage fabrics/trims she can get her hands on.
Sue's favourite new creation is the Little Easter bunny, especially the one that has its own cushion.  Easter is just around the corner so stock up now!
The Chenille Emporium is definitely not one to miss on Sunday!
