BrisStyle Christmas Markets Review

What a fantastic day! I can't believe how awesome the day was even though the weather was so steamy and I got so sweaty.

It was brilliant to meet the ladies I have been talking to and admiring wares from afar - the only downfall (and it's not really one :P) was my wishlist grew as the day progressed and I got to see more creative and beautiful things!

I want to say thanks to all the people who came and bought stuff - thanks to the girls who watched my stall (I was flying solo) when I had to duck off - thanks especially to Helen, Tracy and all the girls who are a part of the committee who worked so hard to get it all organised.

We had our own Olivia from Scampsville who does a Saturday arvo show on 4ZzZ interview some of the stall holders.

The food and drinks were divine with Homemade Lemonade and Iced Tea (from Billy tea with Mint), assorted wraps (DELICIOUS!!) and lots of sweets thanks to the ladies who took the time to make us all a treat! Thanks again or the gingerbread stars - they were amazing!

Can't wait for the next markets
I'll post another blog with more of the market photos but here are some pics of the things I bought!

Sammy is wearing his new PJ's from Mimoo, the gorgeous Kitty is made by Lauren at Raspberry Pink, the cutie pie buttons are from Little Mary Moo and the birdie is a brooch and are made by Hayley at REread.

Thanks Lauren for making the Kitty a pendant for me - you are aces!

What awesome buys. That little red button is killing me! So glad you had a great day - looking forward to catching up in the new year. Have a great one! Cheers, Bec

Doesn't Sammy look so pleased in his new pyjamas? I think like most of us you made a dent in the budget, but what great buys! I was next to Lauren of Raspberry Pink and I was amazed at her skill in creating the most gorgeous little penguins.

I'm sorry I didn't get to meet everyone, but I too was flying solo. However, I will make amends at the next market.

I love those new jammies! He looks so pleased with them!! I too got myself one of Hayley's brooches - the trouble was I didn't know which to choose - they are so lovely!!
See you in the new year! Ali :)

It was a super day! Your Sammy looks very cute in his swanky new PJs! Love all of your purchases. You're right about the food & drinks being good. I had a couple of double shot iced coffees & they were so awesome! They certainly helped with keeping up the energy levels! Sure hoping the coffee guy will be at next market :)
