Christmas Market 2012

Santa has fun with the Mo!
Our amazing Christmas Market was held on Saturday  December 1st and boy oh boy did we have lots of fun! fun! fun!

Our day started off with perfect weather and as all the lovely stall-holders set up for the big day we were all bopping along to Michael Buble singing Christmas Carols!

At 10am we had some customers through our doors getting started on some Christmas shopping and it wasn't too long that we had a wonderful visit from the Jolly Man in Red!!

The kids all had lots of fun telling Santa what they wanted for Christmas and Santa spent an hour browsing the stalls with some of kids and seeing what great handmade Christmas gifts were on offer.

 Even the stall-holder Ladies managed to squeeze in a hug with Santa! Hehe
There was some great gift items on offer for our special Christmas market including some great Red Wine Spritzers from Callipari Wines! We had lots of our customers enjoying some of the wine tastings and buying a few bottles to share with family and friends over the Christmas holidays!

 Just after lunch we were joined by the absolutely amazing Adelaide Allsorts Harmony Choir who kept us all entertained for the remainder of the day with some wonderful tunes!

Everybody grooved along and had a great time!

We had more stalls than we have ever had at Once Upon A Market which was absolutely fantastic and our customers were loving our range of gift ideas.

We had candles, tea towels, wines, biscuits, handbags, baby items, jewellery, clothing, hair accessories, toys, baby shoes, scrapbooks, sewing kits, home decor and much much more!! It was truly a great shopping experience for all.

A lot of our stall-holders had special Christmas stock that they brought along which were adorable including pettiskirts, stockings, recipe albums, cards and more.

 All the kids that came along had lots and lots of fun at the Fluffy Duck Activity Zone where they were painting plaster figurines and plates.

I absolutely loved seeing how many great little artists we had and the smiles were spreading quickly around the market!

 As we got to the end of the day nobody wanted to go home! But we had one suprise for one of our lucky customers.....Jennie Hesling was the winner of our special Christmas Raffle and she was delighted to receive our basket full of handmade gifts!

Thankyou to everybody who made our Christmas Market so enjoyable and very special! 
To all our customers and stall-holders I really appreciate all of your support and I hope that you will continue to support Once Upon A Market in 2013 as we would love to grow and become a wonderful community market!!
