love to the op shop

When i was younger i didnt really understand the whole op shopping thing, i remember my mum taking me to a couple and thinking these arent the real "shops" where are all the new things? where are the sparkling lights? why isn't everything made from plastic? and where are all the multiple items in 6 different sizes and 50 different colour combinations?

well i think i have certainly moved on since then! (thank goodness...) i love op shops and the treasures you can find in them, i love that you can ponder where the object has come from? who owned it? where did it sit in their house? what was it used for? and its such a brilliant form of recycling and a great way to contribute to charity. People who work for organisations like the salvos, st vinnies, good sammys and more do a fantastic job and a great service to our society. I regularly browse my local for finds and i love dropping in a bunch of my stuff hoping that someone else will find a little treasure for themselves.

just wanted to share my delicious honey! every year around christmas we receive some pots from alex's grandad who keeps bees in south west WA and this year we got the blackbutt honey similar to jarrah but even more delicious... the Blackbutt trees are becoming rare due to logging so i feel very fortunate!

ps. i also just put up some badges in the etsy shop!

saturday slowdown

Well there is not long until Christmas now and it seems that everyone has gone into overdrive crazy shopper mode! If you want to avoid the crazy shoppers there is a great design market on today in Leederville called Unwrapped, from 10am – 5pm at the Tafe Campus on Oxford street check it out if you have a chance…..

this morning I was browsing etsy whilst eating my toast and thought I would share some of my finds! I am feeling a little brown and aqua theme happening?

market wrap

Market season is over for me this year … I love doing markets because I love to see and meet the people who buy my stuff, I like hearing about where they are going to put it up in their house, what outfit it is going to go with and who it will make a perfect gift for! A little self indulgent really?
The last market I did was subi upmarket a part of the subi festival, it was good, my very first night market! the customers were different to the perth upmarket crowd who are passionately there to buy, buy buy and chat of course (which I love)…. There was plenty of browsing and lots of really cool side events and entertainment. Probably the only things I would knock would be the lighting, I think they ran out of time to put up the spot lights, my stall was not too bad but other people were really in darkness which makes it a bit hard for people to view your wares and I guess the price for a hotdog was a little extravagant at $6 a pop I guess this is the price you pay for eating junkfood! But all in all I think market season was great this year, next year perth upmarket is going to move to UWA which I think will be great for the customers because I often hear about how cramped it is and how hard parking was to find, so the new venue will be fab! Thanks for all of your market day support this year its been wonderful….
