Markit @ Fed Square: Sunday 29Th May


We are super excited about participating in MARKit in just over a weeks time, have you seen the lineup, it is pretty amazing! Our stall is also right in front of a place that sells beer, so I'm sure I will be drinking all my profits.

One of the nice things about doing a market is the shopping and having a chat to the people who make the goods. I always like to have a run around just before the market starts and have a look at what I want to buy and hope by the end of the day it is not sold out. If you have ever been to our market stalls and I've not been there, rest assured I'm probably doing something very important, like spending up my carni cash. Here are some of the things on my MARKit wish list so far:

I got one of Madz Has Runaway's brooches late last year to wear on my coat in Scotland, so I think this necklace would be a welcome addition. I don't wear much jewellery, but nice necklaces like this are my one weakness!

This weekend we are getting our new couch and it a rather special occasion for two reasons. Firstly it is the first couch that isn't second hand or a hand me down and secondly, we have been waiting four weeks without one and have been makedoing with camp chairs. Sure it was a novelty at first, but now I'm just sick of them. We already have one Me and Amber cushion, so another would be a gift to myself for waiting four weeks without a couch.

I've discovered nice chopping boards are a bit of a must have in the kitchen. We have some thin plastic ones that seemed like a good idea at the time, but they now curl up so chopping on them is a nightmare. This Ute one has been on my wish list for about two years and I keep kicking myself that I've never got one. I think the Ute stand is opposite us at MARKit so I am sure looking at them all day will mean I'll walk away with one.

Now while I'm at MARKit, Gareth will be up the road at Rose Street Market and probably thinking he wants a nice present just for being him. Seeing it will be his six month birthday a couple of days beforehand (does anyone actually celebrate these??) it wont hurt to get him something nice. Gareth has some A Skulk of Foxes cuff links that he is pretty much in love with, so I am sure this t-shirt will be welcomed with open arms into his wardrobe.

What about you, what are your favourite market purchases?
