What a F A B U L O U S Father's Day market day! The weather was as predicted ... cool first thing (v. cool! thick frost on the ground which stayed til late morning in some places) but then it warmed up to a beautiful clear Spring day. Great to see so many people wandering around, enjoying the day, taking in the sights, spoiling Dads (I hope!).
The Father's Day Raffle proved a big success with a nice crowd sticking around at the end of the market to see if they'd won. Yet again, thanks to the generosity of our lovely stallholders (everything in the hamper was donated) the hamper was overflowing! & the lucky winner, a local family, the Bridgeland's were v. v. happy with their goodies. Thanx everyone!
As a thank you to all the stallholders who donated & participated in the raffle they all went into their own draw to WIN their next stall for FREE ... Congratulations to Lynne Lade (she of the Happy Pants phenom).
There was a nice array of stalls & definitely something for everyone to be found! Our lovely friendly market continues to grow & attract new stalls & entertainment ... Next month a youth musical group is booked to perform, they're a bit larger than our normal acts (about 19 members!) which means they will be located in the undercover area. But don't worry, there'll be plenty of seating for people to sit & listen & enjoy the sounds - or you could also browse through the many stalls which are also located in this area ... what to do, what to do???
If you haven't been to our markets in awhile now is the P E R F E C T time to come on down! The mountains are superb! in the Spring & as we all know we're on the downhill slide towards Christmas (eeekk!!!) so come & check out some of the unique local arts & crafts, gift cards, paintings, clothing, jewellery, bags & wot-nots!
