Made 'N Thornbury Market

thornburyWhen the fledgeling Northside Makers committee sat down to figure out how, why, where and when we were going to create a market, an equally important question was what kind of market we wanted to create. It only took a moment to discover we all had the same market in mind as our model. We wanted it to be just like Made 'N Thornbury.

The stallholders are relaxed and quickly make new friends, visitors flowing in from the neighbourhood, and everyone thoroughly enjoys themselves.

In fact, we even consulted with Justine from Thornbury Women's Neighbourhood House about the finer points of market organisation. That's the kind of environment Made 'N Thornbury fosters - people helping each other to achieve their goals.

We mention this little love-fest today, because crafters, cooks and clowns (maybe) are currently rising from their beds early on a Saturday morn for the Fathers Day edition of Made 'N Thornbury. As well as the usual handmade goodies we all relish treating ourselves to, there'll be gifts made with Dad in mind. There'll also be cupcakes, a kids craft table, great coffee, a string trio and a bounteous craft basket with donated items from all the stallholders up for grabs.

Come say hello to Northside Makers Pivotal Expressions,Curlypops, Finki, Tinniegirl, Konstant Kaos, Flickettysplits and Mrs Beckinsale. Wow, what a huge list!

All proceeds from the Made 'N Thornbury market benefit the Thornbury Women's Neighbourhood House.
