So that was 2011 and bring on 2012

Dear Stallholders Customers and friends of Made ‘n Thornbury Craft Market. 
What a great year we had in 2011.

All four markets were well attended by beautiful stallholders and friendly customers. We have welcomed many new stallholders and seen regular favourites, creating a great mix of products and personalities.

Our last market of the year on Friday 2nd December was by far the busiest : 

Here, our blog and facebook page have been regularly updated providing us with an invaluable source of promoting the market and our stallholders. We will continue to build on both of these in 2012. 

We were also lucky enough to have several articles and mentions in other blogs and printed media, including a great feature in The Melbourne Times Weekly: 

Our first ever stallholder meeting created great conversation and lead to lots of new ideas to help build our market even stronger. 

So, onto 2012! Again we will have four markets showcasing local women creating handmade products.
