MADE Artist Market Shopping Fun

Posted on: April 13, 2012

Last weekend, I took my youngest to the Port Fairy Made Artist Market.  It’s a great little market that happens 4 times a year.  I had a stall last December and had a great time selling my pincushions.  This time though, I had the chance to visit as a shopper.  And shop I did 🙂

My Miss bought along her pocket money and made the first purchase of the day

It a gorgeous little brooch that can also be worn as a pendant.

She also couldn’t resist this

I was drawn to the Claybody table as soon as I saw it.  You know I love my tea and my teacups, so I just had to get this

Each cup had a different doily impression on the bottom.  It a gorgeous cup to drink from.  Very warming for the hands on cold, cold days.

There were lots of other lovely things to buy from just as lovely sellers.  I wish I still had little enough ones to buy a gorgeous Pint softie. You’ll find Pint’s Madeit store here.

How could anyone resist one?

It was a grand day out 🙂  I really recommend going to have a look if you have the chance.  I’ve not seen a market quite like it.  Very beautiful, unique things you just wont find anywhere else.

The market will be on 3 more times this year

 WINTER : Saturday 9 June (Queen’s Birthday weekend)
SPRING : Saturday 13 October (Spring Music Festival, Port Fairy)
SUMMER : Saturday 8 December (pre-Christmas Shopping)

I’ll be selling at the Spring and Summer events.  I am really looking forward to it.  Before then, I hope to share with you some more of the wonders that can be found there. So keep an eye out – it will be interesting!

PS : I have blurred the email & phone numbers of the sellers to avoid spam, but if you would like to contact them, please contact me & I’ll put you in touch.
