The handmade bug

I've spoken about this before... that I am well and truly surrounded by people who have caught the market/handmade bug.

It is so nice to share this love of the handmade and creative world with the people closest to me. My Mum, my sister, sister-in-laws, mother-in-law and friends, all have their own talents and they are often a source of inspiration and creativity for me. We can chat for hours about material, patterns, handmade businesses we admire and our love for markets. I have heard a brother-in-law of mine suggest that our girly 'market talk' is worse than their boy 'boat talk', hmmm not quite! 

It is lovely to have a common interest with those you love and when it keeps the little people's wardrobes stocked with beautiful, unique pieces it is win/win all round! 

I LOVE handmade because it is polar opposite to the products that the big chain stores churn out. They're usually one-of-a-kind pieces, they can be 'upcycled' from old fabrics, they have less of an impact on the environment, you know they are Australian made and they are almost without fail, very, very beautiful.

So.......  it is with a huge sense of family pride and love that I introduce the handmade Sugar & Spice family giveaway!!!

Visitors to our July 31 Ballarat market have a chance to win one of two prize packs all made up of unique, handmade pieces created by my very own family and friends.

There will be a girl prize pack and boy prize pack on offer and all you have to do is visit us on the day and fill out a short survey. Simple!
The two winners will be drawn at 1pm on market day.

The prizes are all crafted by clever, talented people; some who have started their very own businesses and some who just do it for the love. Thank you family. You can check the two prize packs out on our facebook page. 
See you at the market!
