MARKit redux

design frenzy

Well I figured that the weather, being as terrible as it was, would keep the peeps away. Well you know what? I was so very very wrong. The atrium was jam packed with enthusiastic shoppers (yes everyone seemed to be buying) and designers/makers/crafters were doing really well despite the drizzle and driving wind.

We were very impressed with the branding and publicity for this market. Posters everywhere, email newsletter, hamper giveaway and quality goods on show. Very inspiring!

We can't show you what we purchased from the lovely Anika of the Gently Unfurling Sneak because it's for the intern's Christmas stocking.

It was lovely to catch up with the ladies of Harvest Textiles

And I fell instantly in love with the illustrations of artist crafter Dawn Tan. Dawn was sponsored by Craft Victoria to have a stand at Markit and she was doing so well. But really, who can say no to a paper mountain range brooch? not me that's for sure. RAMONA
