What about that market!!

Yowzahhh! If you missed it... - where the bloody hell were you??? Handmade Market was H-U-G-E, and with an estimated 12,000 Canberrans and style hunting tourists descending on the event at it's new location at Yarralumla Woolshed prooved it's position as Canberra's newest premier event.

Certainly well pleased were every stall holder I spoke with, and despite the apparent short comings in the parking department, all of the shoppers were extremely impressed with the quality of work on offer, not to mention the vast quantity of it. And while moments were pure mayhem, I did manage to slip away to do just a little bit of shopping... I couldn't leave without a gorgeous sequinned top by Chinchilla Creations (and I still covet the matching jacket... sigh), a name plaque for my little boy's room by Mooza Designs and some chai from the Chai girl (ooh yeah). I shall be eternally grateful for the happy mix-up which had my stall move a significant distance from Lindsay & Edmunds chocolaterie (instead of almost on top of it) my ass says thank you.

A big big thank you to my gorgeous Frenchy friend Odile who tirelessly helped me ALL DAY! Legend.
And a special thank you to people who deemed my goodies goergeous enough to bring home, and my gorgeous readers who stopped to say hello, your comments mean the world to me, so keep them coming!

Love Nina x

We've all done it before... bought the jeans we thought we could squeeze into or the shoes too tight (but thought they would stretch) or the top that was so cute - but you'll actually never wear it! Well Riverside Plaza in Queanbeyan are giving you a golden opportunity to exchange your fashion faux pas for some shopping money! You get a $10 voucher and Anglicare get your as new piece.

Check out the Exchange booth until Sunday 20th September.
