Emu Plains Market this Saturday 16 March

Please join me this Saturday from 8am to 1pm at the Emu Plains Market in Balnarring on the Mornington Peninsula.  This will be my first market in Balnarring.  I’ll be selling all the works available on Etsy and a whole lot more, including the earrings pictured below, necklaces, rings, pendants and bracelets.

The Emu Plains Market is a brand new market curated by some very passionate local people.  It’s been resurrected from previous market versions held at the same venue.  This market embodies all that makes a succesful and good market, “it’s all about the community and families but most of all…it’s about you!”

At the market you will find farm fresh produce, gourmet food, artists and crafts people’s work from Melbourne and the Mornington Peninsula, and vintage collectables.

The market is located in Coolart Road Balnarring in the stringbark forest next to the Balnarring racecourse, it’s a lovely venue to while a few hours away and support local business.

I look forward to seeing you on Saturday, please drop by and say hello.  My stall is in Number 1 position on the day.
