After being involved in the market scene for many years as a stallholder and organiser, Ruth Slade of R.E.S Designs got chatting with Cathy Heaven of CarrieBags Tasmania one day. They decided there was a gap in the handmade market scene north of Hobart and Flourish Handmade Market was born.
Flourish Handmade Market: June
Flourish Handmade Market is almost brand new in Tasmania. The very first event was held in March at New Town, just ten minutes from the Hobart CBD. Following on from that success, the second market will be held on Sunday 2nd June at the Scout Hall, 245 New Town Road. The doors will be open and customers will be welcome from 10:00am to 2:00pm.
There is free parking and flat access for prams and wheelchairs, making it a perfect day-trip for the family. Or for anyone really! If you’re looking to do a little shopping in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, the makers would love to see you there.
25 stalls featuring locally-designed and handmade products will include…
- children’s clothing, sunhats and accessories
- paper products
Flourish Handmade Market: What To Expect
Just Babee & Me will be there with handmade products for babies and mums. The organic baby range includes massage and cradle cap oils; and a nappy rash cream. For Mum, there is organic belly oil, natural homemade soaps and organic lavender tea. They are available individually or in gift packs.
To see the entire range of stalls visit Flourish Handmade Market on Facebook. Sunday markets are scheduled for 1 September and 1 December, so add the dates to your diary now. If you’d like to have your own stall, the organisers of Flourish Handmade Market would love to hear from you. Photos supplied by Ruth Slade and Cathy Heaven.
