Last Market for 2011 this December 17th!!!

Well its been a big year at The Olive Tree Market!! My partners Bec & Ally moved onto their new project One Penny Black Cafehttps://www.facebook.com/pages/One-Penny-Black-Espresso-Bar/144805218888240 which has been doing amazingly well! I miss them but am proud of them for following their dream. You should check out One Penny if you haven't!!

Olive Tree has been growing and we have had some amazing new stallholders join the market. Frankie & Frida who make gorgeous cedar jewelry, graphic designer and artists Angie Goto, The Hare and the Tortoise who make very funky kids toys, Elkhorne with beautifully hand screen-printed home-wares and handmade cards from Blueberry Paper to name a few.

We have had great music at every market from Grace Turner, Sorella Strings, Earthen Rhythms, Jack Dawson, Scott Gelzinnis, Zoe Klemenczuk, The Do Riders and more!!! At the last market we some great backpackers from Germany the Jammin' Johnny's and I really wished you had all seen them as they rocked the house with the amazing energy!! It was the end of the day so not as many people were at the market which was a pity!!

We will have some of our favourite stallholders move onto new things after our last market of the year! Julia from Frejj is off to have her second child, printmaker Robyn Mcpherson will move to Melbourne to attend Victorian College of the Arts and Emily Rose will move to Sydney to study. It sad to see them go but it also means we will have some great new stallholders in the new year. So you really should come to Olive Tree next week on December 17th and snap up some of their amazing work!!!

Make sure you come to Olive Tree on December 17th and support your local Handmade Community!! There will be lots of lovely work on offer and beautiful work from the hands of the people who make them for you to give to the people you love this Christmas!! 

Hope to see you there!! Make sure you tell all your family and friends and come and enjoy the extended hours from 9am-6pm and take in the atmosphere of people who love what they do!!

  1. I loved the markets last weekend and bought most of my Chrissie pressies from there (the ones I didn't buy at the Red Lantern Markets!) Have a few more to buy so we'll see you there on Saturday - loving the longer hours. What a great job you're doing.
