Fireside Markets

Markets markets markets - do they seem to be popping up in every local park you see on Saturdays and Sundays. There are a great opportunity to promote local people making a local product. BUT what if you have a few kiddies that play sport and you go to church on Sundays. And the weather is not always kind.

Well then I came up with another idea, (well an idea that I borrowed from the awesome Lindsay at The Pleated Poppy and their blog for The Stitch Market)

I got together with a good friend and neighbour Jodie of Silky Chill. So we set our course on our adventure.

The date was set for May 3, 2011. In the meantime Jodie meet the cool chicks behind Swish Swosh and asked them to join us also.

So the crafty hands went crazy in preparation for our big night and the vaccum, mop and bucket did also.

We all gathered at my house, sending of the dad and kiddies and setting up in the comfort of home. No concerns about the weather. (it actually was really warm with all the bodies)

And yes, friends and family showed their support

Overall the night was a great success, so much so that we are planning another night in July. Check out our Facebook page and be kept up to date on our next plans.

Also a HUGE thanks for Bec from Swish Swosh for the awsome photos.
