Ohhhh I love the weekends but particularly because it means MARKET TIME!
A couple times a year the Niche market comes to Launceston. It's a craft designer market and a mecca for people like me who just can't help themselves with sweet, one of a kind designs and original products.
Not as much as I might usually buy but a few sweet treats. Buttons in lovely shapes and a beanie for Ewan.
My favourite jewellery at the moment is by "That Vintage". Divine Tasmanian Myrtle timber is used for everything from earrings, brooches, necklaces and rings. I took a business card to slip somewhere into Roge's view as there may be a upcoming birthday he wants to buy for, hint hint! Find more about Sophie and her gorgeous designs at facebook.com/thatvintage.au or thatvintage.com.au
My favourite stalls today:
Black Eyed Suzie
I made a decision earlier this year that I was going to try to make all my gifts and cards but if I couldn't make it, then I should buy locally from a small business or craft maker. It makes me feel good to support these people and line the pocket of someone in the community.
I hope my photos have wet your appetite to go out and find your local niche market and spend up big!
