Sewing, Printing, Sewing, Printing......................

So much to blog about, but no time. Have a market coming up this weekend (Saturday, 6th September), fingers crossed that people come and rain stays away. It is the inaugural Olive Tree Market held at The Junction Public School at The Junction. Hopefully this market will be a success otherwise it is no more markets for me in Newcastle. I'm getting a bit over throwing stall money away and not recouping anything in return. The Janome is burning rubber at the moment. Have had it revved up for the last few weeks now, I'll make sure I take some pics of my stand and see what you guys think of my setup. The pic I'm leaving you with today is of a letterbox that I rode past on my way to work one day and has been crafted by some crafty Kenny me thinks. The letterbox is an exact replica of the house behind it. Too funny...... Promise to pick up my act after the market on the weekend. Must post about the 'art of the note' swap. There are so many cool cards arriving in my letterbox... Thanks everyone.

OOooh, can't wait to see how it goes. You had good weather for it and I love the name and location. There used to be a great market at Adamstown when I lived at Newcastle in the early '90s. It had a couple of top vintage clothing stalls and craft and was small and never stocked crap Chinese tools. Was a good market.

would love to see pics of the stall.unfortunately i'm not down that way on weekends as i work every weekend.bummer.i really hope it goes well.i did hear there are the produce markets at the broadmedow showground that now allow craft stalls not just produce the only thing is the cost of the stall would be a lot more.my sister who does cakes is having a stall at maitland this coming week and i really hope it goes well for her too...

best of luck with the markets, i know what a slog it can be .. as a regular stall holder at paddington market i know it can be famine or feast ... or just plain mediocre.
wishing you a big, hearty feast..

good luck! Hope it goes really well for you! Markets are funny things! I've done a few with my sister. We did two festivals a few weeks apart, made tons of cash at one and then virtually nothing at the next!!! Strange places markets!
