New in October 2019
We have recently joined a new market "Handgrown & Handmade" which will be holding regular markets on the 4th Sunday of each month in 2020 at Speers Point Park on Lake Macquarie. The inaugural market was held on 27th October. It was a sunny, calm day and the market stall mix was well curated and the attendance excellent. This regular market will be augmented over the next few months by some special Xmas twilight markets.
We sell homewares, sculpture and accessories at this market.
The focus of this market is on operating eco-consciously - reducing the market's environmental impact. "Homegrown & Handmade" is run by team, Lauren & Lewis who run THE STATION Homegrown market in Newcastle. Remember: this is a SUNDAY market, open from 10am until 2pm.
Yvonne and I have always included a few homewares in our display along with some small sculptures. The last few weeks have been spent prototyping vases and other small bowls to expand our range. Sometimes we cover existing glass or ceramic forms and other times we build our own forms. The highly decorative pieces are mostly small -bud vases designed for a single or few stems - and trinket bowls. The large sculptures are clay or limestone. For Xmas we have focussed on bowls and charms - the charms can be pendants, earrings, wine charms, keyring, purse charms etc. Here are some of the items Kay has made for this market. Yvonne will get me her photos next week. ENJOY!
