So back to Woodend ...

With all the chatter of Ballarat it would be easy to forget the Woodend market!

Applications for the September market opened last Sunday and there has simply been a flood of application, and may I say how many simply lovely businesses there are out there making gorgeous bits and pieces for the kidlets. The September market is going to be very lovely too!

I am also trying to be being super doper organised by starting to plan the Woodend Christmas Sugar & Spice and I would really like to have a bigger venue. Now do not get me wrong I really do love St Ambrose Hall, but a bigger space = more retailers = more variety with the added bonus of more space .... and a lot of you have told me that more space is really important. So, do you have any suggestions of a suitable location. I would preferably like to keep it in Woodend but I am open to any suggestions really!

Brace yourselves Ballarat!

The Sugar & Spice Children's Market is definitely setting up shop (so to speak!)

When: 28th November 2010
Where: St Patricks Hall (adjacent to St Partrick Cathedral on Sturt Street)
Time: 10am - 2pm though this is negotiable

St Patricks Hall is simply magnificent and twice the size of St Ambrose Hall in Woodend, so there will be oodles of room for the lovely businesses that have already contacted me expressing interest! Seriously, do not buy any Christmas gifts for the kids, neices or nephews .... I promise there will be loads of gorgeous stuff to buy them at the market

Who is up for a road trip .........

...... to Ballarat??

If you have not caught wind of our news yet, Sugar & Spice Market is coming to Ballarat!!

The news was broken in the local newspaper (The Courier for those of you playing along at home) on Monday and the response has been VERY positive already, YAY!! Luckily my parents live there still and mum has saved me a copy of the article.

I am really hoping to have a Ballarat Sugar & Spice by the end of the year (late November is the current plan); that is if everything falls into place nicely for me. Now to continue my search for the perfect Ballarat venue, it is proving to be a little more challenging than I orginally thought!

A few gorgeous pics from the market

I just know it is going to be a great day when I receive an email from the lovely Kate of Tea & Jam Photography. Monday's email was no exception as the gorgeous photos they took of the market were sitting there patiently waiting for me.

So yes I have been a little slow to get these up, but I hope that you enjoy them!!

Many thanks to Kate and Nathan for these photos. You will be able to catch them again at the September market but if you can not wait that long Kate will happily book a session for you via email........ be quick though as appointments for this year are filling quickly!!

Did you take any photos of the market? If you did I would love it if you would share them on our facebook page.
