30 hour fling: Daylesford Maker's Market

Saturday began with juice and cereal at the apartment while the kid had baths and I packed up all our stuff... Cedar got grumpy and everyone got dressed, and we were out of there by 9:30! First stop was to see if the op-shop was open, it wasn't, so then we all trotted in to Lark and the kids created chaos in the cardboard house they had there while I took piccies and met new people... all about that in my last post.

Now we had planned on going to the Daylesford Farmer's Market first but while at Lark Allison told me how fantastic the coffee at the Maker's Market was, and with Ben desperately messaging me from the car at this point, in need of caffeine, we rearranged our plans. To the Maker's Market! The coffee was indeed scrumptious. So were the sample cups of orange hot chocolate. Mmmmm.


First we met the delightful Tracey from Maxymoo, who had her ear all but talked off by Sienna and Ash with all their enthusiasm. Within ten minutes, Sienna had decided they were all friends and both kids had scored a screenprinted card each. I bought these screenprinted drawstring bags, perfect for organising goodies in the handbag or whatnot - I also loved the wall hanging versions!

Oh, the Craft Revival. How much did I love that Jack Sparrow Rabbit? A lot. So cool. Ash was looking over my shoulder while proofing these shots and was all "I want it", and I was like "I know, right?" and also "you can't have it." Awesome stuff tho, and Magdalena was all lovely and friendly too :)

Bunty and Sars is a collection of cutely illustrated items with a vintage / recycled twist - very cute, and I bought one of her colouring books :)

Tania of Myrtle & Eunice was so nice! I loved chatting to her :) She also gave the kids lollies (but asked my permission first, yay!). Technically I think the kids asked for them first actually. Anyway, she was gorgeous! I *almost* bought a tea towel but was concerned with making my dwindling cash supply last the full turn of the market. But I did love them. Look! Her shop is here!


Villa and Hunter was another fantastic stall. I could have bought an armful of tshirts and singlets for Ash, with their gorgeous nautical themes, but they only went up to size 4. He IS 4, well, almost 5, but wears size 6 tops. However I could not even think of resisting one of their 'ship in a bottle' cushions. I bought the denim one, after much deliberation, but I love the blue cord version too! It has been hidden away for when Ash has a new quilt cover - he has requested brown, to be suitably pirate ship-like, and I have some chenille on its way to me via ebay.

With inspiration everywhere, the only thing now that we're home again is to turn ideas and creativity into productivity. In the meantime, the final installment of our 30 hour fling is coming up next...
