What a handmade-fest this weekend!

People of Launceston you are spoilt! 

You have the most amazing choice of gifts and 'stuff for yourself' that are all completely handmade  - all of the raw materials have been loving hand-picked, hand-designed and then handmade with love by the stallholder.  Each item is individual and special.

Who wouldn't want a handmade gift for Christmas, I ask you?  Me, I just love handmade brooches at the moment... nod, nod, wink, wink to my family!

At the market this weekend, you will be spoilt by:

Samspiration - beautiful felted products including cute animals, toys, brooches, mobiles, booties and hats

Tamar Valley Gourmet Foods - the most yummiest cakes and biscuits including a gluten-free range which are equally as yummy.  Don't forget the choc-coated raspberries!

Hoot Hoot Hooray! - wrap skirts with groovy pictures on them

Tact-ilse- Linda's wonderful and whimsical range of original art, felted items, cute brooches and accessories

Three Little Chickens - little applique singlets, handbags and cards

Shaz and Marys' Knits - these guys are amazing knitters!  They come up with groovy knits each time they're at the market.  And knits aren't just for winter - come and see!

Robin Cochrane - gorgeous beaded necklaces, but not like you've seen anywhere else.  Freshwater pearls too.

Little Jomm - for the very hip, very cool baby - tops and onesies with awesome applique pictures on them, the perfect gift for a little one in your life for christmas!

Louise Garwood - all kinds of cool things from homewares and knits to christmas tree decorations.

The Sweet Tooth - lollies and fudges including a new range of sweets and lollipops all made right here in our own little state.

Four Seasons Herbs - a huge range of potted herbs - it is so cool to have your own herb garden - even in a pot!  Ask Tara how...

Lees Orchards - apples, apples, apples!  Straight from the orchard to you - value for money!

Did I say spoilt!

Don't run around town like a chook with its head cut off!  Come and take time to browse our 23 'shops' full of special, beautiful and lovingly-made products under one roof!
