Under pressure!!!!

A day and a half's notice about an opportunity to have a market stall may seem like the perfect way of inducing stress into one's life.
but me, I work well under pressure.
I thrive on the thrill of last minute preparation, and do some of my best work when the clock is ticking. Saying 'yes' to everything and sorting it out later, sorta works well for me.
Sorta, kinda...mostly!

On the off chance that I couldn't fill a table on short notice, I decide to share my space with the lovely Anna of Polly Pratt,

So for some fantastic market shopping this weekend, do head down to our stall at Northcote Uniting Church, 251 High st, Northcote. Saturday 20th June, 10 - 3.

You'll see the friendly faces, and talented crafty goodness of curlypops, pepperberry and co mishmash mosaics, the yummy delights of Melbourne epicure and much more.

As if that wasn't enough, you can also wander down high st two blocks to the fabulous winter artisans market held at the Northcote town hall. All this action is also part of the Northern exposure, visual arts festival happening over the whole weekend.

With so much crafty delight on offer, Northcote is the place to be this weekend.

If your from out of town, mark on your map, shop local, I dream a highway, and the book grocer all in the same block.
We also have the fantastic Westgarth strip of shops just over the hill, perfect for a movie and it's surrounded by numerous cafes for lunch or a coffee.

I won't have the whole Finki range on show, so if you have any special requests, let me know and I'll make sure I bring it along. Catch yah there....


  1. I'll be there! Looking forward to a good walk!!

  2. Here I go again, wish I could be there, sounds great, I wanna live in Melbourne (again, I was there til I was eight and now its only for holidays )I'm jealous, Good luck, have a fantastic time !

  3. I'm all packed and ready to go...see you there!

  4. good luck with the short notice market. I am sure you will have more than enough to fill the table.

  5. I forgot these market were on! I'm definitely going to pop in, my hairdresser just moved my appointment and I was wondering what I was going to do for a couple of hours - perfect! I'll bring your pencil case too, just finished it today : )

  6. Oooh, exciting! And I'm exactly the same. 100% better under pressure :-)

  7. I love the look of the belts. I hopefully will be dropping by after Mathilda's market tomorrow. I might even grab my scissor case, stuff cleaning my workspeace out, I want it now. Hopefully see you there.
