I hope everyone in Sydney survived the heatwave over the last week, Saturday was quite possibly the hottest day I've experienced in Sydney to date. I breathed a sigh of relief when I was finally cold enough to put a jumper on!
Yesterday was the first Eveleigh Artisans' Market of the year. The flow through of customers was pretty slow, but with the heat and it being the beginning of the year it was hardly surprising. I did have a lot of fun though chatting to the customers who came by and of course all the stall holders. This market has such a lovely community feel, I really look forward to it every month, even just to catch up with fellow marketeers.
I got chatting to a couple at the market, one of them was wearing an awesome necklace so I asked where they got it from. It turned out they make the necklaces themselves and their brand is Brainbow. They're in the process of putting together a website, but in the meantime you can check them out and buy their wares on Etsy.
In other market news, last month I tried the Rocks Market for the first time which I have to say was really average! It made for a pretty tedious weekend with few customers and lots of people who 'didn't get it'. I was told the busiest stall was one selling kangaroo testicle key-rings, which is saying something. Nevertheless I've decided to give it another go, it could have just been a bad day at the market (although I doubt it). So this Sunday 13th Feb I'll be at the Rocks Market with my fingers crossed!
