Made with Love in December



This weekend just gone was our December Made With Love market bazaar. But don't be sad because its not quite our last for the year {I will post more on that later}. We saw lots of new faces in our patrons and in our makers - it was also one of the biggest markets we had ever catered for. You can see the set of photos HERE on our facey page done again by the wonderful Naomi at Look See.

So now we are just over our two year anniversary of the start of the market I am starting to see and feel the impact Made with Love is having in our community. I am surprised that locals are still "discovering" us - I do not know how much money we have spent on advertising and promoting but I have resigned myself to the fact that you can never truly inform the public of events and that word of mouth is still the best advertising.

Another thing that makes me emotional is the people that make the market - the makers - the public and the people that in little ways contribute to the happiness of it all. I am not kidding when I say that ALL of our makers are beautiful people and the atmosphere that is created in those few hours is something that should not be taken for granted. In fact sometimes its hard to find a maker to buy of becasue we are all to busy socialisng and having a great time. 
The people are the ones that make a market - an event and a community. I even feel a bit emotional writing these words because I just cant express how grateful I am to everyone for playing their part. There is no bitchy undertones - there are no makers hiding and looking grumpy behind their wares {mainly because there is not room behind their tables to sit - ha ha} and I feel that the positive energy that they give off really goes a long way to the future happiness and survival of not only the market but the creative energy in our small town.
So thankyou to all of you - you know who you are - I thankyou for your support near and far and I am one truly grateful woman xoxoxoxoo
