the problem is not with Adelaide.

I've got to say this. As a male, I wasn't really looking forward to another craft market on a wintry day. Wading through another corny collection of cosmetics, candles, and kids clothing in the rain was not sparking my enthusiasm.
But it was not to be. Thankfully the market is indoors. And then the first thing that I saw on entry was a stand selling radio controlled helicopters. I was told that one of the helicopters was actually designed in Australia too. Woohoo, there's something for the boys here after all!
After tearing myself away from the toys, I was admiring some stylish woollen hats when the seller told me all about her hat making machine. No longer is it necessary to hear the clicking of needles while watching TV, this marvellous device does it all for you.
Further along I saw some beautifully presented jewellery, it looks even better than the photo and was very affordable. I just wish I had caught the seller's details as she deserves credit for her creative talent and hard work.
After my dogs gazed mournfully at me when I left without them, I dared not go home without something for them. Fortunately I came across a couple dedicated to the craft of making affordable dog treats. Life savers!
I only have time to touch on the tip of what was there at this surprisingly active market. But I will give an honourable mention to a couple of Asian girls who had the most delightful looking confectionery on sale. I don't have much of a sweet tooth, but was very tempted to try one of these.
Of course there were kids clothes and other things here too. Nearly everyone had a Facebook link for their produce, so working smarter and networking has taken hold here. Despite my original thoughts, this place is definitely worth visiting.
