I was very surprised to find a stall (Handle with Care) selling modern cloth nappies. When I first started using cloth nappies on the Gander three years ago, modern cloth could only be bought online. So it was great to see a local business out there promoting a fantastic product, so that potential purchasers can feel the nappies and see how they work before buying them. Although Miss Goosey already has plenty of nappies handed down from her big brother, I couldn't resist buying her a cute pink BubbleBubs nappy.
The next Handmade Market was held at the Yarralumla Woolshed. Flib and I (and Miss Goosey too) had a lovely time checking out all the stalls. And there certainly were lots of stalls to look at! As usual, I made a few purchases for Miss Goosey, incluing a cute litle singlet from the very lovely ladies at Sweet Sista.
While I hope the next Handmade Market is a busy one for Goosey Gander and Flibbertigibbet, I am also crossing my fingers that I get just a little time to shop as well!
The first market for the year is coming up on Sunday 28 March, at a branch new venue - the Kamberra Wine Company. With both indoor and outdoor areas, lovely green lawns, and plenty of gorgeous handmade goodies to admire (not to mention tasty things to eat) it is set to be a wonderful day.
At special request of the Handmade team, I will be focussing on my boys range for the market - shorts, appliqued tops and pants, along with tag toys and bibs in some gorgeous fabrics.
Flibbertigibbet will also have some new products particularly aimed at boys.
We hope to see you there!
