Husband and wife team, Robyn and Justin Carter, who come from coastal South West Victoria, produced a series of videos for their niece's and nephew while they were living overseas.
The Adventures of Herbert and Valerie offer light hearted, healthy social and environmental messages and lessons that appeal to adults and children alike. The messages were aimed at the Carter family members and Robyn and Justin found that adult and children family members liked the videos.
Robyn and Justin have a background in music and design, as well as a passion for the environment. They produced the videos as a meaningful, unique gift to post home while they were living overseas.
The Secret Garden markets are held at Barwon Heads, in a picturesque, well located venue. The Secret Garden is situated in the heart of Barwon Heads.
Barwon Heads is one of Victoria's busiest coastal towns during the summer months. It attracts many holiday makers who pass through the market entrance daily. Barwon Heads also draws a vast number of visitors to the Bellarine Peninsula, the Surfcoast and the Geelong region.
Described as a cool oasis on a warm summer's day, the Secret Garden offers various pop up vendors. There are large well established trees that create filtered shade over the garden and lawn sites. The whole atmosphere is most enticing and draws the public in to experience the many treasures available at the Secret Garden market stalls.
The Secret Garden Market features many individual designers and makers of unique, boutique and artisan wares. Some of the designers returning this year are Summer Taj Designs, Sophie M and Haven & Co. Some new names in designers are Holy Tote, Wildings Pantry, Hipster Clothing, Amyst and Label by Leggoe.
A regular pop up stall holder during December and January is Coffee Nomad, selling Doughboys Doughnuts.
