Market in December

Posted by Di on December 17, 2012 at 6:05 AM

So the year is rapidly drawing to a close - & as it does every year it all seems to happen so much faster than the year before! Our December market has come & gone & now we are gearing up to start 2013 with our market in January!

But first, let's go back in time just a little bit to what actually happened in December at Leura First Sunday Markets. Well, to start with it was mayhem! in the lead up with so many new stalls wanting to book in - & then of course there were all the last minute changes which happen every month - so it certainly kept me on my toes! We ended up with a whopping 90 stalls! which is our biggest to date since I have been involved. THANK YOU to all the stallholders who joined our markets & helped make it a great day all round.

Being December it was of course our Christmas market with some fun Christmas Craft & Activities for kids (wonderfully run by some volunteer parents of Leura Public School) before the main event ... a visit from Santa! It was so much fun to see the kids get sooo! excited when he arrived on the fire truck & they all flocked around him - he quite resembled the Pied Piper as he made his way to his seat with all the kids following close behind!

Also at our December market we ran another successful Hamper Raffle. This is a great initiative where stallholders donate something from their stalls to go into one BIG hamper where there can only be ONE LUCKY WINNER! This month it was Jenny Norman who took home the hamper made up of all sorts of lovely goodies - there are some really clever, creative craftspeople at our market! & as a thank you to all the stalls who participated in the hamper raffle there was a lucky draw for one stall to win their next stall with us FREE! This went to Tony the ice cream man - one of our long standing regulars. CONGRATULATIONS to both winners.

Next year will hopefully see our market continue to grow as we have done so over this year - it is fabtastic! to have so many more regular stalls who attend every month - wonderful for our visitors who can rely on some great products for sale along with good food & drinks each every month.

Next market is Sunday January 6 so make sure to come along & check us out! Start the New Year with a fun day out for the whole family at our friendly local market!
