Northside Makers Market - Overview
Today was the second Northside Makers Market. I really wasn't sure if I was going to turn up, due to feeling quite sick during the week. However I was determined to go, I really wanted to meet a couple of bloggers that I follow and lets just face it, I just love being there!
I was happy with my set up for this market, however I have come to the conclusion that I wont be bringing my gift wrap, it's just not selling. I will venture into other territory and see what the public wants. The packaging and pencils were a hit and I received lots of comments about the invitations.
I met with the lovely Samone from Red Letter Studio's, I love her work, it's fresh with an old style charm.
Also met the creative Cate from Polka Dot Rabbit, I purchased one of her comic purses, will show in a later post.
I was also very happy to have some yummy food made by Master Chef Cathie / Melbourne Epicure It was really nice to meet her in person.
All other favourite bloggers / crafters were there as well.
Overall the day was kind to stallholders, as in no rain, however there was plenty of wind. There were plenty of customers, but they seemed to be holding onto their cash. The music, vibe and organisation was lovely. I wish the Northside Makers team the best of luck for 2010.
