New listings on Madeit

Big thanks to everyone who came to the Handmade Market in Canberra on Saturday. For those who didn't make it (it was just a
little bit hot for all but the most diehard of handmade shoppers!) I'll be listing some great items in my madeit shop over the next week or so. You can visit it here. OR you can check out any of the stockists listed over to the left. Both Leeloo and MissChief Maker sell online as well. AND I'll be at the Manuka Childcare Super Fete on Saturday 12th December - should be a super duper fun day out!

More Market Goodies...

Along with the gorgeous vintage lamps mentioned in my last post here's a few more items that I'll be taking along to the Handmade Market at Yarralumla Woolshed in Canberra this Saturday (21st Nov). These item's are all made using reclaimed and revamped bases and teamed with handcrafted lampshades. They'll brighten up any room that's for sure! If you're not in Canberra make a beeline to the stockists listed on the left hand side. They've all got a great selection of lamps and they're all different!

Vintage Goodies

Here's a sneak preview of just a couple of the items that I'll be taking along with me to the Handmade Market at Yarralumla Woolshed, Canberra on Saturday 21st Nov. These beauties are made from original vintage fabric.

The first is a seriously cool 1950s print featuring Mayan characters and their crazy goings on. The second is a 60s/70s print featuring sheep, horses, men fishing, kids playing, flowers, trees, houses... It's fantastic!

I'll have some ceiling shades and table lamps available in both prints but they are seriously limited in numbers!

By the way, unfortunately I won't have an eftpos machine at the market - really sorry about that. Hope to see you there this Saturday!
