Just a few pictures of yesterdays combined Boutique and Mathilda's Markets at Hobarts waterfront.
We were very lucky with sunny (mostly) weather and a great turnout of market goers.
Well worth the trip south.
It's been a bit of a long haul, but we are finally counting down the days (and products left to make!) till the innaugural Boutique Markets in Hobart this weekend.
Am a bit excited as I haven't done a market in Hobart before so it will be interesting to see how my little range goes, plus I get to see an old friend, Rachael - organiser extraordinaire of the Boutique Markets who invited me.
Have been very busy making candles, soaps, soy melts and bath melts - just a few more bits and pieces to go.
Spent the better part of 4 hours today just labelling!
You really do have to love what you are doing - with handmade goods there really isn't a way to recoup all the labour time in your selling price. Otherwise they would be $20 bars of soap!
Still, I enjoy every batch and my house smells divine!
The wonderful Rachael and I got to know each other while I lived in Brisbane - I was lucky to be part of the Boutique Markets in it's earlier stages. Seeing it grow and go from strength to strength has been lovely - though somewhat bittersweet as I could no longer join in the fun!
How very exciting then to see that the Markets are now touring the country and now it's Tassie's turn!
Now, the challenge is to be ready in time!!
With our lovely wellness centre going so well, and orders from other lovely outlets (like here and here) coming in - we are starting to sweat a little with planning and ordering and making!
But it's all still fun and I can't wait to catch up with Rachael again.
Plus hubby and I will make a weekend of it and stay overnight in Hobart - never a hard thing!
