Glenbrook Rotary Markets

It was a gorgeous sunny day for the Handmade and General Market in Glenbrook last weekend. What a huge variety of stalls there were. I have taken a few snaps of the highlights:

I was so glad to see Pretty Frocking Vintage there because I have been admiring their lovely range of vintage clothing and accessories on instagram for a while. Fun to see for real their gorgeous frocks, coats, scarves, hats and even brollies! Check out the cool hat in the pic!

I love Blackbird Soy Candles‘ rustic sign! All their beautiful candles are locally handcrafted and smell divine! More on instagram: https://www.instagram.com/blackbird_soy_candles/?hl=en

This busking duo, Jerrah and Friends were really rocking the market! Great tunes and rhythms! I think they are regulars so if you get to the next market, make sure you check them out.

I get so excited when I see upcycled vintage cutlery! Gitane Jewellery are locals and their stunning jewellery is expertly handcrafted. They also make super cute markers for the garden.

I adore flowers (you may have guessed?) and had to stop and admire Lily of the Valley’s sweet blooms. Aren’t they so pretty? More on instagram: https://www.instagram.com/lilyofthevalleyfloristry/

Next stop was Yvonne’s Handmade Pottery. I love pottery and seeing Yvonne’s work was wonderful. We had such an interesting chat about the unique patterns and designs she has developed in her pieces. Yvonne is a regular to Glenbrook Markets so look out for her there but also on instagram: https://www.instagram.com/yvonneshandmadepottery/?hl=en

Final stop was Modimade, a fairtrade venture that partners with women in Cambodia to handcraft a range of beautiful products. Soft toys, clothing and colourful mobiles but also nifty nappy changing kits designed by Modimade’s inspiring founder, Anna. Look out for more on instagram: https://www.instagram.com/modimade/

Handmade and General Market is on the 3rd Saturday each month at 10 Ross Street, Glenbrook. There is also a Grow, Bake and Make Market at the same venue on the 1st Saturday of the month. Stay updated via instagram: https://www.instagram.com/glenbrookrotarymarkets/

Proteas

These are some of my home grown proteas. Aren’t they elegant and fabulous? I am no florist. I just trimmed the stems a bit, put them in some water and they put on their own show! Proteas flower in autumn and grow quite happily in the Blue Mountains. They are native to Southern Africa but are cousins to Australia’s waratahs and banksias. What’s blooming in your garden?
