handmade happy

The lassies from the inaugural Handmade Hobart,  both market organisers and stallholders themselves, Penni, Sue and Marg, should be justifiably happy with themselves from the weekend's event.  They did a fine job.  Despite rain both days, people were out in force.  Customers and stallholders were quite happy about the abundance of room to move, and the variety of goods for sale.  The good coffee and hot chocolate by Baristasista kept everyone warm and happy too.   It was extremely difficult for me, to curtail purchases (hey, I have free-rein in the handmade arena!), however I did buy a lovely brooch, and I commissioned Sophie from 'snowpea handmade' to made a neck warmer (too stylish for words!).

Please enjoy these photos, but excuse the quality, whilst we had plenty of natural light, the sun wasn't out, and I had camera trouble.
