I was so busy at the recent BrisStyle Indie Designer Markets that I didn't get a chance to take any personal photographs...very bad blogger indeed.
Luckily the official BrisStyle photographers Darren and Daneve were there. Please enjoy images of the day courtesy of Kish Photography and Design. You can check out the full set of photos of the BIDM Markets here.
Saint Augustine's Church on Racecourse Road, Hamilton, Brisbane was the perfect setting for our markets. Brisbane turned on the traditional Christmas weather - hot and only getting hotter!
Made by Maisie had prime position under a big big tree. Luckily a constant breeze swept through to keep us cool.
Lots of Maisies went to new homes. Some Maisies have made their way to my Etsy store.
My neighbours were the lovely...
Sharlene from Sharlzndollz kept the crowds in amazement with her paper dolls.
I managed to have a quick look around at the other stalls while my lil sis Ju Ju tended my stall. I don't know what she said to the customers but, when I came back, she had sold many of my Maisies to new homes. Must be the talkative school teacher in her!
A few highlights of my little look around...
Mmmm...I love Little Mary Moo's Place. Beautifully made coin purses, bags and other lovelies.
Twinkle Star Art has beautiful digital artworks, personalised artworks, cards, pocket mirrors, pendants...
Ooops...I spot a matroyshka or two.
Edward and Lilly hand embroidered brooches. I have a new thing for sausage dogs.
EmBellish were selling an array of goodies. From owls to onesies to cookie ingredients to pincushions...so many lovelies to choose from...
Now I know who has been buying all the supplies of polyfill at Spotlight. There must be at least half a kilo of polyfill in these cutie owls!
I managed to purchase a little onesie for a dear little boy recently born to good friends of mine. I should have bought a few more for a certain little Maisie...
I am a big fan of Beckybean handmade recycled/upcycled bags.
Little sis Ju Ju was seen leaving the BIDM with a Beckybean carry bag. I wonder if I will get a surprise under the Christmas tree???
Thank you to all of you who stopped by and introduced yourselves. It was lovely to meet you and have nice chats. Thank you to all my friends who I encouraged to come along to see what a talented bunch of ladies that I belong to. Thank you to Helen and all the girls behind the scene who made the Christmas 2009 BIDM a great success.
Now, back to more custom orders for Maisie...
