Mittagong Markets info link
If you are in the Christmas shopping mood this Saturday, why not drop by and see what the lovely Mittagong Markets has to offer. It's getting closer to the silly season and generally there are not only the great regular stallholders, but also newbies with plenty of great, unique Christmas present ideas to make buying gifts a real pleasure.
I have been very busy the last few weeks making some new and exciting Christmas tree decorations as well as my usual, popular hanging birds, which double as beautiful Christmas tree decorations this time of year. My native Australian bird range make a wonderful gift for someone special. They look amazing not only hanging in the garden, but are lovely as a indoor decoration. A special gift for a garden or nature lover. See past blogs for photos of these.
At Christmas time, I make an arrangement in the centre of my Christmas table using natural gum tree branches in a wide vase or something similar then arrange a selection of my little birds for all to enjoy. It looks so pretty. I have had customers do the same thing and each year they come back at this time of year to see what other birds they can add to their collection.
My new and latest native Australian bird is the 'Superb Fairy Wren'. These have proved to be very popular at a recent market, but are new for my customers that frequent Mittagong Markets. If you don't want to miss out, get down to see me early on Saturday as they are my best seller!
Here's a flock of them in the making, all ready for a clear glaze and firing.
Psst.... a little secret.... another new bird to be released next month? Can you guess what it will be?
Can't get to my market? Then why not have a look at my Etsy Shop. Buy up to five items and I can post to anywhere in Australia for $6.95. Jan Wallace Pottery Etsy Shop Link
I will be adding some of my Christmas decorations to my shop in the next few days. So, keep a look out.
Thanks for stopping by.
