The Central Goldfields region of Victoria hosts some amazing farmers and art & craft markets throughout the year and judging from events I have attended so far, they are worth the trip and a day out. As a result I have made it a new years focus to visit and support local markets in the area a little more frequently both as a trader and patron. So kicking off the year, today was the local Creswick Community Market.
I set up a stall in the hall along with some other very talented artists and it was a very inspiring atmosphere. From the outset things went well, everything was organised, easy to access and from what I got see there were a great mix of stallholders, fresh produce and musicians for background entertainment. The atmosphere was relaxed and given that we have just recovered from the festive season and most are still on holidays I was surprised so many people were out and about. We even had a spot of sunshine which was pleasant. Thank you to my loyal customers and also to those who stopped by and had a chat, inquired about the Margie and Bert Studio, workshops and placed orders. Your support at the local level is valuable and your feedback was very inspiring. Well done to the Creswick Community Centre team who made it all happen and I would love to be invited to trade again.
