Farmers Market

We had a lovely long weekend weather wise,  many people were enticed to visit our little town for the local farmer's market. Lots of wonderful craft, local produce, yummy foods and space to wander for a chat and a catch up with locals and visitors.

also new Zippy Zippy bunting table cover. Stall being manned at this moment with child labour.

Our children were also part of the local child labour movement - photos in another post to follow. They were pleased with their day's takings  :-selling sheep poo, rolled wheat for special chickens and chooks, also the lavender or lemon myrtle heat packs for those aching body parts!

Anne used this gorgeous sandwich board to draw the crowds into her aromatic stall - selling body scrubs, lotions and the soy candles with names such as Pink Champagne, Sea Moss, Ginger Lime and Hazlenut Marshmellow - to name a few.
Yummy body scrubs and lotions
Enticing relaxation
The younger two 5BN decided to pool resources, and go halves in the 10 min massage --
5 mins each for the neck and shoulders.  Now we know what a real massage is!!
Hmmm maybe a little softer!!
Is it 5 minutes already!!  Keep going!

We have one of Michael's Two Up sets'  at home, the kids love it --as do their mates. The Woodwork Teacher at School is assisting the students to try their hand at replicating this in time for Anzac Day on April 25th.

The Market is held on the Sundays of long weekends and Easter, all very social, lovely stalls and stall holders.
