Mathilda's Market Hobart: Little Snoring Stand

Here are some pictures from my stall at Hobart's first Mathilda's Market. It was a lovely venue and loads of lovely folks, and quite a number of pregnant bellies and smiley children.

I didn't really get a chance to have a proper look at everyone stalls, but the colour and light in the place was enchanting. The lovely Anne from Mathilda's took lots of pictures so I will be checking in at their blog for the round up!

ps. I will also be doing a shop update this week so I will let you know when I have finished.

Little Snoring celebrates the launch of Mathilda's Market in Hobart

Mathilda's Market is on in Hobart this Saturday. I have to say I have been a bit excited about this market for quite a while. They have been running on the mainland for the last year and have developed quite a big following. They hand pick the stall holders to ensure the products for sale and high quality, handmade or from small production runs.

The venue for the Hobart event is the Hobart Function Centre on Elizabeth St Pier which has a great room at the end looking out over the water. They will be having a cafe at this end, so it will be perfect for a little Saturday morning catch up with friends or coffee with the kids.

I will be sandwiched between the gorgeous mirrors of Allypops and the explosion of tulle that I expect will arrive with Princess Ratbag. I hoping it will be a lot of fun and with stall holders flying in to be there, I expect my purse might get a little workout as well.

It is only on from 9am - 1pm so I expect it might be worth getting in early to get the best picks. Please say hello if you pass the Little Snoring stall.

ps. I will be bringing along some new products, including the Gumball Headband and a really lovely, colourful necklaces for you and the girls

Boys love Gumballs too!

Somedays it would be handy to have a little girl around to photograph wearing some of my necklaces. As it happens I only have boys, 3 of them actually, and while I have been pondering designing something cool (and appropriate) for them to wear - it hasn't happened yet. The closest I have got is these colourful gumball necklaces, in fact it is sometimes hard to get them to hand them back, and well when they look this cute...

Cool Brittania: Little Snoring Union Jack Square Pillow

Cool Brittania*
Brittania you are cool (take a trip)
Britains ever ever ever shall be hip
(Hit me, hit me)

*First coined by my very favourite whacked-out band The Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band in the first track from the album Jollity Farm.

Anyhoo this is my latest ode to my ancestral past... I love the Union Jack, it is such a strong graphical image and is a combo of the flag of St George (England) and the Flag of St Andrew (Scotland). I love it as a pillow so much I have made my own... available online at the Little Snoring Shop!

The Market

I have some more images taken on my phone (battery flat in camera, d'oh) which I will load up later. This one was taken by Holly - thanks Holly.

Anyhoo, it was a lovely day (albeit a bit humid) and I got to meet lots of lovely peeps and try out some new products. The Peggy People Kits were a lot of fun and have gone off to many new homes.

I also introduced some Union Jack Cushions that I have been printing over the last couple of weeks which has been a lot of fun. Shop upload due soon, hopefully today.

It is always lovely to catch up with some market friends and make some new ones, hello to Marita, Rosie, Cathy, Rebecca, Holly, Michelle and Jo, and Tara.

Little Snoring: Peg Doll Ladies from the village of Big Hair

Peg Dolls became popular toy in Victorian times, and I think their charm is still visible. They are also a lot of fun to dress up and play with and an easy craft for kids.

These lovely ladies look like they have just stepped out of the hairdressers! I only wish my hair would look so full and fabulous!

Anyhoo this ladies will be coming with me tomorrow to The Market. I have made up some Peggy Peeps People Kits (fun for the whole family?) ... will be trying them out at the next few markets.

Please note: The making of Peg Dolls is addictive... I have growing collection now... a few more than is really necessary for a woman of my age.
