Saturday at Handmade Hobart
Well we braved the wet & windy weather yesterday to visit Hobart's newest designer handmade market - Handmade Hobart, and we weren't disappointed. I must admit I did bribe the children into coming by promising to buy them a cupcake each from Maddie's Cupcake Creations. Maddie makes the most intricate decorations on her cupcakes and they are just works of art. Sadly the girls were that excited about them that I didn't get a chance to take any photos. She had an array of different animals and the girls chose the "butterfly" & the "sheep".
After cupcakes they also enjoyed a babycino from "Barista Sista". I took a photo of the market in action from the stage, which was nicely set up with tables & chairs to enjoy a coffee.
It is a great location at St Peter's Hall, cnr Harrington & Brisbane Sts, and the hall was full of lovely stalls and a bustling crowd. There was an array of stalls from jewellery, children & baby's wear & accessories, stationery, felt scarves, hand dyed/spun wool and of course cupcakes and coffee.
I definitely give it the thumbs up and congratulate the organisers. The next market is scheduled for 23rd & 24th January 2010.
