February 11th 2017 - save the date!


Ladies and gentlemen, it's that time of year again - January has gone by in the flash of an eye, and we are now starting February right in the eyes! One of the most widely celebrated dates in this coming month is none other than Valentine's Day on the 14th. Although known to most as a day where couples display their love for each other in a more public manner than usual, Valentine's Day is more than that - it's a day to show love and appreciation to all those around you, whether it be in the form of romantic love, platonic love, or familial love. And what better way to do that than to attend a cat themed 'Purrlentines Day' Market?

Hosted by the Lucky Cat Cafe, the Purrlentines Day Market is to be held on Saturday the 11th of February from 4:30pm to 8pm, with fun times to be had by all! Purrlentines Day Market marks Lucky Cat Cafe's third festive market after the Black Cat Halloween Market and Meowy Christmas Market, both of which were very successful events - their third is bound to be no exception to this trend!

And of course, purr-use the amazing market stalls to get a little something, at the same time supporting some of your local small businesses, including:

Julisa - toxins free vegan nail polish
Scents That Make Sense - hand-crafted, eco-friendly candles, melts, soaps, & more!
Kareki Art - graphic art
Pockycat - "art, art, and more art"
Jojo & Lola's Jerky Chompers - delicious gourmet dog & cat jerky treats
Rory the Fox Handmade - handmade jewellery
Kimberley Kapers - great range of pet clothes and accessories
Purrfect Earrings - handmade earrings inspired by a secret love for cats
Shimzbar - kitty themed art, including custom pieces!

It's also with noting that all of these lovely stall holders have generously donated prizes for the raffle, with all money raised going towards Brisbane Valley Cat Rescue, a no kill cat shelter. The first prize, however, is something a little different - grab some tickets to support a good cause, and you might just win a romantic Valentine's dinner for two with Lucky Cat Cafe's resident cats!

As a final note, Kay from Shimzbar is taking commissions to illustrate your kitties - message her before 5th February to have your piece ready for pick up at the Purrlentines Day Market. These custom pieces are only $10 ($5 for extra cat, with a maximum of two cats per page due to space restraints). And if you thought her art is limited to just felines, think again - I messaged her asking if she did dogs, and her (extremely prompt) answer was that "there is always a first time". So if you've got other animals you want drawn, do message Kay and you might be pleasantly surprised!
