Our Melbourne adventure started with flight issues at the airport which has become a way too common occurrence for us! Our one hour flight to Melbourne turned into an eight hour day spent at Sydney airport with only $8 food vouchers to keep us company. In the photo below Herbert is pointing out the culprit, Tiger Airways.
Unfortunately after our extended stay at the airport we had no time to explore the delights of Melbourne, but as luck would have it the market itself had a great deal of these delights on offer! Here are some of my favourite stalls. First is Goldenink who make beautiful painted ceramics and ceramic jewellery.
Next are these awesome lampshades by two layers of cells. They have heaps of great limited edition designs with illustrations by local Melbourne artists.
Another pick for the market is Nikki Catalano who is actually a Sydney based illustrator but I had to include her anyway because I love her illustrations!
Lastly is Red Parka, where I bought these super cute fridge magnets. They also had some great prints that are really fun and colourful. Their website doesn't seem to be working at the moment but here is the link anyway www.redparka.com.au.
Here are some photos of what my stall looked like over the weekend. I recently decided to get an eftpos terminal for markets. You can see my new sign on the left in the bottom photo which I have sewn out of felt, the sign received an overwhelming number of compliments which was unexpected but really nice.
All in all it was a great weekend!
