What a gorgeous community market set on the grounds of Holy Trinity Anglican Church in the heart of leafy Surrey Hills. This popular monthly market has over 40 stallholders who sell homemade / handmade wares that are of excellent quality and some are quite unique.
Out the front of the Church was a large collection of plants, herbs, succulents and fruit trees. I picked up a couple of potted plants as gifts.
Kebby makes these absolutely stunning teacup candles which are very popular with her customers. Some bring in their own cups and saucers asking Kebby to fill with her magic. Others buy a cup and saucer and once they’ve used it return for it to be filled again – often with a different fragrance. I’ve seen many candle makers but there is something unique about her work that is exceptional. Just love it.
Econet make these lovely mesh bags that are colourful and very light. Ideal to put in the bottom of your bag and use when your out shopping.
Surrey Hills Neighbourhood Centre had a display promoting their courses and facilities. It was lovely to chat with Melanie about the work they do and contribution to the community.
There were a number of women productively knitting and crocheting as I chatted to them about their stall. Another stall had the most exquisite hand made little girl dresses. Hand made jewellery, cards, soaps and more.
Recommend you bring your own bag or trolley along so plastic bags don’t have to be used. Also try to bring smaller notes. We all know that the ATM’s dispense $50’s and stall holders are prepared for that but when so many people turn up with larger notes it becomes problematic for them.
