Go away rain

We’re gonna brave it and head out early to the Bowral Country Markets tomorrow morning (Sun 20th 9am – 2pm). Stay away rain! See you there!


Market review

The Highlands Handmade Design Expo last Sunday was great fun, showcasing an impressive number of designers. A huge thank you to the very efficient organisers Nicky & Naomi! Stella & Bea met lots of lovely customers and took many orders, so it looks like there’ll be a few late nights of sewing this week… ooh and you can also now find a range of our cards and bunting in stock at Made By Others in Moss Vale.

If the weather holds this Sunday 20th (and I don’t think it will) we will be running our stall at the Bowral Country Markets, Kirkham Rd, Bowral from 9am – 2pm. If it rains I’ll be at home getting a head start on these orders! Otherwise we’ll be back at Bowral on Sunday 18th December. Don’t forget in the meantime to keep your eyes peeled for our Pop-up shop in Bundanoon…

Market days

Well the sun was shining for us on market day. I’m a little rusty and out of practice setting up my stall but I think we did ourselves proud. Mum was amazing and helped me for the day, she agrees with me it’s much faster to pack up! I feel totally at home at markets, like I am back in my territory and that old happy feeling kicks back in.

We met lots of lovely customers, some old, some new and we’ve been invited to have a stall at the next design expo run by Highlands Handmade. This will be held on Sunday 13th November, 1pm-5pm, venue details to follow. This event is by invitation only so let me know if you’d like your name added to the guest list and I’ll organise to have an invite sent to you.

Being the first market back since April we didn’t quite attract the crowds I would have liked but it was still a positive day. So spread the word, the Bowral Country Markets are back on!

See you there next month on Sunday 20th November!

At the Markets

My sewing machine hasn’t stopped for days apart from a quick break to bake a batch of Raspberry Choc Brownies. Essential sewing food. The Bowral Country Markets have new organisers and have been re-branded as Dancart Bowral Country Markets. The Market will be running from 9am – 3pm this Sunday (16th Oct) so come along early to grab some bargains. I’m really excited for tomorrow, our stock is looking great and I hope you can swing by and say hey.


Heart(s) for sale

It’s market time this coming Sunday, 16th Oct (all going well once my booking gets confirmed! – watch this space). Stella & Bea will be running a stall at the next few Bowral Country Markets, held on the 3rd Sunday of the month at Kazcare Education Facilities (formerly the Steiner School) in Kirkham Rd, Bowral. It all gets going around 9am until 1pm. Here’s a sneak peek at the new stock I’ve been sewing up in the wee hours. Handmade cushions galore, Little Birdy’s, Decorative Hearts, Baby Bloomers, Softie Toys and more will be for sale, plus quality pre-loved books and vintage goodies for your home.
