KEEP Craft Your Business

So, you've perfected your craft.

You've had your first, or maybe the first of many, market stalls.

Folks at the market seem to be enjoying your craft but you can't be at a market every day of the week. Plus your customers might not be able to make it to market.....

What to do ?

Setting up an online store can help you reach more customers. Any time of the day or week.

To help you navigate setting up an online store, we are running a KEEP Craft Your Business workshop on Saturday May 31st.

This workshop will led by Make Craft Your Business facilitator, Dee and feature a presentation by local craft guru, Liz of Betty Jo Designs.

We'll discuss which is the best online platform, photography, promotion, product description and store policies.

The workshop will take place at Leinster Grove on May 31st from 10am - 2.30 (ish) pm at a cost of $20 per participant. This is payable on the day.

Bookings are essential - please email to register your place.

We look forward to seeing you at this highly anticipated workshop.

A day of craft, tea and handmade.

You know, we're not just a community market in name, but a community in action.

A community of like minded crafters, shoppers, stallholders and volunteers.

Striving to make a great market for our local community.

Making, creating and shopping.

Even the rain doesn't dampen our spirits.

Lots more photos from our great market day on our facebook page. 

A big thank you to our talented stallholders and shoppers who came along the day. We hope some lucky mums woke up to handmade gifts from the market on Mother's Day Sunday.

Also, a VERY big thank you to our volunteers. We can't run this market on our own and the support of our volunteers is most appreciated.
Especially our 'tea ladies' who made beautiful Devonshire Tea and raised much needed funds for TWNH - Thornbury Womens Neighbourhood House.

And of course, we'll be back soon. Saturday June 21st 10am - 2pm.

Mother's Day Market

Well, it appears that Autumn and Mother's Day are definitely upon us.

Luckily we have a market just in time for you to buy your Mum, Grandma, Aunt, Wife and other significant lady in your life the perfect Mother's Day present.

All locally handmade, most mums themselves, our clever stallholders have been busy making and creating.

Pottery, jewellery, bags, cards and much more........

We haven't forgotten about those who might like to make something themselves. We'll have TWO craft tables set up for the children to create something for mum or grandma.

You can even spoil Mum a whole day early with our delicious Devonshire Tea available at the market on Saturday May 10th 10am - 2pm.

Remember we are INDOORS, so rain, hail or shine, we will be cosy indoors.

We look forward to seeing you for a great market day on Saturday.
