Apple & Grape Festival

Posted by Ann Verran on March 29, 2014 at 11:20 PM Comments comments (79)

I had a great Apple & Grape Festival in Stanthorpe at the beginning of March.  This Festival is held every two years and it was my third time attending.  It was great to catch up with old customers as well as chatting to stall holders who I only see every two years.  The weather was a bit Stanthorpish - beautiful blue skys followed by wind and rain.  No complaints about the rain, the Farmers were in need of it.

We, my sister Margaret and I again stayed at Glen Alpin, a lovely Farmstay on Sugerloaf Road and again Lois and Peter provided us with a warm welcome, comfy beds and lovely breakfasts. We will be back again in two years.

I have had most of March off, for various reasons, mainly car troubles - now fixed I hope, so will see you at Cooli on 13th April, Bellingen 18th and Broad Beach on 19th April for a Big Easter Market.

Jacaranda TAFE Market

My next outing is to the Jacaranda TAFE Markets in Grafton on Saturday 2nd November. The TAFE is just over the Grafton Bridge on the northern side of the Mighty Clarence River. Markets start at 8 and finish at 2pm.

I will be there with many new styles to get you ready for Christmas.

Come and say hello.

I will have Market Specials on the day.



Bellingen Community Markets

Posted by Ann Verran on September 17, 2013 at 8:25 PM Comments comments (81)

My next outing is to the Bellingen Community Markets on Saturday 21st September.  Come and see me - I am on the left side of the goal posts at the bottom of the field.  Bellingen is a great place to be. I love going, even if I wasn't selling at the Markets. There is a great Community feel to it.

Christmas is coming quickly.  Someone said that there are only 100 Days to go.  Scary.

I have already begun making Christmas orders to get them out of the way, as I always have a glut of orders closer to Christmas. So if you are thinking of Pearls for Christmas, come and see me.

I have been making different styles, still using Pearls and Semi Precious Gemstones, in all colours and lengths.

Here's hoping that we have Great Weather - although it doesn't make any difference.  I will be there.

Alstonville Quota Craft Fair

Posted by Ann Verran on July 28, 2013 at 11:05 PM Comments comments (342)

Hi all,

Gosh this year is flying.  I have just spent an enjoyable Saturday at Quota of Casino Craft and Quilters Fair in Casino.  They are a friendly bunch and there was lots of lovely craft presented. It was held in the new Community Centre and was their second Craft Fair.

My next Craft Fair is in Alstonville on Sat 24 & Sun 25 August - at The Alstonville Leisure & Entertainment Centre and is organised by Quota of Alstonville / Wollangbah.  I have been attending this Fair for six years now, and it is always a great place to start thinking about Christmas gifts and pick up some of the lovely items that are on sale.  The girls at Alstonville are also a very friendly bunch, as are all Quotarians and I am looking forward to it again this year.

I have many new items available.  I have been working with Swarworski Crystals and adding them to my Pearls to create some beautiful pieces.  Come and see me at the Alstonville Fair.

Posted by Ann Verran on February 25, 2013 at 1:30 AM Comments comments (65)

After a lovely month off over Christmas, I have been trying to get back to the Markets, but living in Yamba has its down side.  We are flooded in again, for the second time this month.  Hoping the road is open by Thursday.  Then, as long as we don't get any more rain and the Mighty Clarence River behaves, I will be at the Broad Beach Art & Craft Market on the Gold Coast on Sunday.

I've been making new pieces, so come and see me at Broad Beach.
