I love hanging out with creative people. Take a problem throw in some coffee (or even better) wine or beer and soon the ideas, solutions and inspirations are flowing. The pen and paper comes out and you wake up next morning with a vague recollection of agreeing to something BIG.
A BIG year of hard work, lessons learnt, new friends made and many, many laughs.
This was exactly what happened with the lovely Kate Campbell and I.
A great conversation and (maybe) some wine and Northern Regards Artisan Market was born.
And this week, she is one year old !
We made it ! We've survived our first year.....
I'm extremely proud of our lil market.
A market that is Melbourne's only market solely focused on sustainable handmade.
A market in a pub - before everyone started doing it.
A market on Northcote's high street.
A market of highly curated, upcycled, recycled handmade stallholders.
Every birthday requires a birthday party.....so that is exactly what we are doing on Saturday 5th July.
There'll be cake, prizes and bubbles !!
And there'll be a chance to say thank you to my market partner, trusted colleague and dear friend.
Seriously, thank you and job well done Kate !
And roll on Saturday July 5th for a fantastic birthday market :
