Perth UpMarket

I had such a great response at the last market i went to – that I’m going to have a stall at Perth UpMarket this weekend!

This one is much much bigger than the last one – and i’m so excited! Not just because of how fun it is (SO fun!), but because it’s being held at UWA, my Alma Mater! I am so ridiculously in love with UWA. It’s one of the most picturesque places I’ve ever been, and now that we’re back in Perth we go there often to let our kids ride there bikes (when classes are not running), because it’s just such a lovely place to be. (And Chris and I met there, so there’s that hehe) Yeah… i am a little biased. Anyway, here are the details!

Sunday 25th November
University of Western Australia
Winthrop hall (i’ll be on the Veranda between Hackett hall and the pond outside Winthrop).

I think this promo video from a previous market is so fun to watch. Did i mention i’ll be near the coffee again? LOL they must have heard how much i need caffeine :)

Come say hi! I’d love to see you!

(and now i’m shamelessly posting pictures of my kiddos riding their bikes at UWA… because they’re cute. the end)

Gosh these photos bring back memories! I am a Perthie, but I currently live in London. I do miss Perth quite a bit, especially the weather we take for granted. I’m going to show these pics to my fiancé as we also met due to UWA. Oh the memories that a picture can bring back. :)

I also want to say that really appreciate all your posts about all the craft markets in Perth. I had no idea there were so many and of such a high standard. I’ve bookmarked them all for future reference. Who knows, I may be back one day soon and I would so love to sell at a market. I am learning how to make leather handbags and accessories from an amazing teacher here in London. I’ve been studying with him since February and have learnt so much. Only bummer is that I haven’t sewn a single piece of clothing this year because I’m too absorbed by bags. :). Still, I’m collecting patterns like mad for the day the obsession with bags wears off. :)

I wish you good luck at your Market!
