Last Friday evening saw A Place to Create hold their second Handmade and Pop Up Artisan Market ever! Everyone involved had a fabulous evening, and we were so excited to welcome back so many return vendors as well as some new stallholders too! We would like to take some time to share with you all the wonderful local and small businesses that took part in the markets…
Store owner, Karenina, officially opening the markets and welcoming everyone!
As you arrived at the store, you were greeted by the smell of The Vintage Palm Bespoke Van coffee.
Then by the entrance were a range of different plants for sale – lovingly grown and tended to by Sharon herself!
Before heading inside, each attendee was, of course, required to sanitise their hands before entry to the markets. How cute is this…
As we headed through the store, in the middle section we were greeted by the smiling faces of Marji from Drought Angels and Cathy from Happy Heart Art!
Drought Angels is a cause that the store has been supporting throughout the year and is a charity with the enviable reputation of being recognised for their genuine heartfelt connection to and support of primary producers across Australia, in their time of need.
Across the way was Cathy of Happy Heart Art with beautiful handmade pieces. You can check out Happy Heart’s instagram page by simply clicking here.
Then we head out into the large classroom turned market space! And here are all the wonderful stalls that were on offer…
