The weather was just awful on Saturday morning but I was determined to get to the Beach Market in Blackmans Bay and meet some fellow crafter's that I've only meet on line and I was seriously in need of some shopping therapy!!:)!!
So bribing BF with coffee and crepes for breakfast he caved in and drove me to the markets...I don' know how to drive you see:(
Anyway we made it there in safely as did so many others, they are a hardy race these Tasmanian's!
As we squeezed our way into the front door the first person I noticed was Rosie from NOTIONS!!
Even though it was very busy we where able have a few chats each time I passed.
Her work was so beautifully displayed I could have stood there admiring just how everything looked when I noticed this little brooch with a little black
crow bird perched on a cage..Rosie must have known I was going to be there!! So yes I had to buy it!!
Next door to Rosie was Ruby Victoria with her beautiful lino prints, printed tags and lables. We talked for a while and she gave us a demonstration with her awesome printing machine, go check out her blog there is a great post there now with a photo of her press!!
And then in the middle isle was Loopy Designs!! Loopy makes very desirable bags, purses, needle and pencil rolls and heaps of other necessities. All in beautiful fabrics. Loopy's little zipper purse with the little babushkas was too hard to resist!!
There were lots of other lovely stores and people I wanted to meet but time was running short lots more things to be done and places to go!
A great day was had despite the rain and wind!!
