A retired business owner, my passions are cooking, photography and eating. I use all three of these when I write for recipeyum.com.au which is on HubGarden
Get rid of those crafty items that you are not going to use
Recycling goods you no longer use or want is such a brilliant idea! Why keep things and use space in your drawers, cupboards and sewing machines when you are never going to use an item!
This Recycle Your Stash Market will help you get rid of those items that you no longer need. Sometimes I get my wants and my needs mixed up - I want lots of things but I do not need lots of textiles and things for my lifestyle at the current moment. Therefore, this type of market is ideal for me.
This autumn market will be on Saturday 6th April from 9:30 am to 2:30 pm. It will be held at Opendrawer, 158 Toorak Road, Camberwell.
Are you also a person who stashes away cotton, materials and the like thinking that one day you might use them? Do you have several unfinished craft items lying around waiting for that time when you will finish them? If so, then get ready to attend this market!
One person's textile trash is another's textile treasure! Open your drawers, Recycle Your Stash Market is designed to help stall holders de-clutter their craft stashes while providing an opportunity for shoppers to find special bits to add to their own collection of textiles and craft supplies.
I know I start making things and do not finish and I, therefore, have several of this type of thing lying around just waiting for a bit of attention that will probably never happen in this house!
The market will be free to attend and will be held in the laneway next to the handmade, vintage and textiles store. Come and look around for a rare treasure or a craft bargain. You could also just hang out with other crafty type people or chat with Opendrawer's artisans and makers. While doing this you can enjoy the sunshine and think about your next creation that you just have to make!.
