The hardworking team at the Olinda Community House are sending out the call – stallholders wanted for the Market & Car Boot Sale, returning to Olinda on Saturday 18th November 2017. With plans already well underway, the market is sure to be bigger and better than the debut event last year and everyone is welcome.
The Olinda Community House Market & Car Boot Sale is a great opportunity for hobbyists, artists, makers & creators to showcase their wares. Olinda, situated in the ethereal Dandenong Ranges, is the ideal setting for just such a sale. Almost magical, the quaint houses, shops and streetscapes blend harmoniously together like scones and tea when it comes to quality handmade wares.
Being held in mid-November, this market is an opportunity for everyone to start thinking about Christmas. With artisans on display, the Olinda Community House Market & Car Boot Sale will offer you a great selection of gift ideas, both totally unique and impossible to get anywhere else - especially from the large department stores - which is perfect if you're shopping for someone who quite literally has everything. Expect to find a selection of items from the likes of woodworkers, leathermakers, knitters and clothing designers, just to mention a few.
A November held market is also the ideal time for spring cleaners to lighten the load at home. Bring along your unwanted clothes, books, housewares, potted plants, pet paraphernalia, records, CD's, DVD's, musical instruments, art & craft utensils and tools, collector items and toys – whatever you find lurking beneath the sofa cushions and hidden in the back of the wardrobe - then put the money earned from your sale toward your own little Christmas fund. Treasure hunters will surely swarm to this hearty little market where trash becomes treasure and everybody goes home happy.
Sites are $30 each and can be booked by calling Christine on 0409 960 048 or by filling in the registration form on the Olinda Community House Market website by following the link here.
In true market style there will be hot food (read: sausages) served fresh from the grill, hot vegetarian food options, Devonshire tea, coffee and drinks, entertainment and activities, live music and plenty of family friendly fun so you can take your time and spend your pennies happy in the knowledge that you are supporting both this thriving community house and a handful of small businesses.
The Olinda Community House Market & Car Boot Sale is being held on Saturday 18th November 2017 from 9am to 3pm at the Olinda Community House located at 79 Olinda-Monbulk Road, Olinda (next to the swimming pool). Entry to the market is FREE.
