As the sun rose last Saturday morning, makers from around Victoria gathered to the Bend with their giant pack of goods thrown over their shoulders. As the clocked ticked over, they meticulously merchandised their stalls, as curator, Kim Brockett frolicked about ensuring everything was in order for the greatly anticipated Christmas edition of Craft Hatch... And in order it was. The clock ticked eleven and in they came, people from all walks of life searching for that perfect something, which may we add, many of them found.
The day was full of everything a market day is supposed to be full of – crafts, bunting, tea, shoppers wearing cute socks, laughs, smiles and everything in between. The makers went home with a lighter load, as visitors carefully carried home the goods. All in all, we shall crown it a success! Now we’re just hanging out for the next one. Applications are open now for our March market. We'll be doing it all again on Saturday 17 March so if you can imagine yourself packing showing off your beautiful wares at a beautifully curated market, then perhaps you best apply here. A full album of images by the lovely Kim Brockett can be found just a hop, click and jump away.
