'Christmas in July' Twilight Market

Our annual special event; 'Christmas in July' Twilight Market is coming up.

We'd like to draw your attention to the competitions we'll be running on the night.  You won't want to miss these as winners will receive a hamper full of stallholder goodies.

1) Create the best decoration: Design your own paper star decoration (no bigger than 15cm's diameter).  On the back, write your name, email address and either 'under 16' or 'over 16'.  Bring it along and hang it up in the entryway (we'll provide a hole puncher and string).  The best decoration from each age group will win a prize.

2) Vote for the best presented stall:  Our stallholders have exquisite products that they hand make and design right here in Tasmania, and this time we've asked them to go all out and present their wares with a a bit of Christmas cheer.  You chose the best presented stall - nothing too cheesy, just a little something to make you feel merry and bright and add a little christmas cheer to your night.  Someone who votes for the stallholder with the most points will win a prize - and the stallholder who is voted 'best stall' of the night will also win a prize.

You've got to be in it to win it.  See you there...

Magazine appearance...

Wow, you can now find The Barn Market in your local newsagent.  Well, kind of - check out the latest edition of Handmade magazine, as there is a lovely little write-up about The Barn Market featuring an array of photos taken at our February 2012 market; a great coverage of many of the products you'll find on offer when you visit the market.  Plus, for those of you who want to do some making of your own, there are heaps of projects you can have a go at, including; doorstops, quilts, jewellery and knitting, etc. Check out our plug on pages 44 and 45; brilliant!

Plus, check out the great review of The Barn Market by Jane (one of our ultra-cruzy buskers) as she describes her experience at the market on The Market Angel blog.  What a delightful summary of our little market.
Feeling a little chuffed this week with all the love being spread around; so make sure you come along and join in on the action at our upcoming special event; our 'Christmas in July' twilight market is on Friday evening, 6th July!
