Last market of the year!

Hope you have managed to stay out this terrible weather! Here's to a dry one tomorrow night for my last market of the year!

The BrisStyle Indie Twilight Markets in Brisbane's CBD have become renowned for being "Brisbane's HOTtest      destination for everything "handmade" under the stars", promoting local indie artists and bringing to the city the most fashionable, hip and quirky wares that revive traditional crafts with a decidedly contemporary feel.
The December 17 Christmas Market is set to evoke those nostalgic and traditional memories from the Queensland Christmases and Summer Holidays of everyone's childhoods and will be a night of entertainment and Christmas cheer for all the family.
The City centre will provide the perfect setting to showcase the talented local designers BrisStyle, with marketeers setting up their lantern-lit stalls beneath the King George Square's statuesque Christmas tree and down into Albert Street and around into the hip Burnett Lane precinct.
In particular, Burnett Lane will turn on its own quirky and unique brand of Christmas magic with edgy designers as well as local indie performers. A video Installation will be projected onto the walls of the Laneway depicting the Handmade Holiday theme which will capture the quirky Christmas memories of days gone by.
The big band sounds of the
"Brisbane Excelsior Band" Australasia's premier brass band will fill King George Square with the sounds of Christmas while the Allstar Jazz trio and street performers roam through the crowds.
The Markets will be supporting the Lord Mayor's Community Trust with a Christmas Hamper full of gorgeous handmade wares donated by all the stallholders with councilor Fiona King drawing the winning ticket on the night.

We'll be moved to undercover above Groove Train, so do pop by rain hail or shine! :D
Hope to see you there!

New favourite cafe found

Hi there

I wanted to share this new cafe find in Woolloongabba! It's in the Woolloongabba Antique Centre (22 Wellington Rd, Woolloongabba QLD 4102 (07) 3392 1114), which is fantastic in itself! So many great bits and bobs everywhere and it's huge! I could spend hours there!
This is the cute cafe all set up for Christmas. I love all the different sets of colourful tables and chairs!

Me drinking chai tea from my "house" teapot!

A cauliflower teapot!

Corn salt and pepper shakers! so cute!

And this is....
The hideous wet, rainy weather that is plaguing Brisbane currently, thanks to El Nina. It also prevented me from attending the last Young Designer's market of the year on Sunday! So upset... this was because of the drenching I got while set up at the BrisStyle Indie Markets on Saturday. My stock got damaged, so it was a bit of a sad affair... Such is the life of a marketeer, though..! At the mercy of the elements..

Enough of the depressing's to a wonderful Christmas and a successful 2011 for you. Enjoy the break!
