Tomorrow, Sunday 8th February, I will be at the Coolangatta Arts & Craft on the Coast Markets. Should be setup by 8am and will be there until about 1.30pm.  Hope the rain holds off and we have a nice day.  I have a range of new pieces, plus some specials for the day.  See you there.


Yamba River Markets 28th January

I have had to cancel my spot at the Yamba River Markets because we have had constant rain all day and the same is expected tomorrow.  In weather like this there is too much change of damage to my pieces.


See you at the Yamba Street Market on New Years Day - 1st January 2015 at 5.00pm - a twilight affair.

Hope you have all had a Happy Christmas and have a Happy New Year.

Bellingen Christmas Markets

The Bello Markets are an experience everyone should have at least once. Great Community spirit and a huge range of different goodies to purchase. I love going to Bello even if I don't do the Markets.  Come and buy your last minute Christmas presents, and if you miss out on the Bello Markets you can find my Pearls at The Waterfall Way Tourist Information Centre, right in the middle of Bellingen.

Thus is my last Market before Christmas, so don't leave it too late.

Have a Very Happy and Safe Christmas and may 2015 be everything you wisg for,

Cheers

Ann

Thanks to the ladies from Legacy at The Vines in Grafton.  It was a good Craft Fair with lots of quality good to buy. See you again next year.

My next outing is to "The Coolangatta Art & Craft Markey" on the forshore at Marine Parade Coolangatta.  It will be held next Sunday 14th December.  It is a good day out with lots of gifts for Christmas. There are 150plus stalls of all sorts and it is a really interesting mix. We setup at 7am. It usually takes me an hour and a bit, but ready for customers by 9am.  We pack up around 1.30ish, so don't leave it too late.

It is my last outing on The Gold Coast before Christmas, so if you want a piece of my Pearl Jewellery come and see me at Coolangatta.  If for some reason you can't make it,  there is plenty to choose from on my Website.

Have a Very Happy and Safe Christmas and I will see you back on the Coast at Coolangatta on Sunday 11th Janusry 2015. Wow how the year has flown.

Coolangatta Art & Craft Market

Posted by Ann Verran on August 9, 2014 at 1:05 AM Comments comments (0)

I haven't been to the Gold Coast for a couple of month, so will be back at The Coolangatta Art & Craft Sunday Market on the foreshore at Marine Parade on Sunday 10th August  I will also be at the Broadbeach Market on Sunday 17th August. It is on the foreshore at the Esplanade near the Surf Club.

In August I will also be at the Quota of Alstonville/Wollongbah Art, Craft and Garden Fair at the Alstonville Leisure Centre on Saturday 30th and Sunday 31st August.  This is great Fair, the Quota Girls always do a good job and the funds raised goes to support causes in the local community.  It is a good day out and there is food and drinks available. This year a Garden section has been added.  I can't wait to pick up plants for my garden as the weather is beginning to warm and I will be planting, between making my pieces.

I have just added "Melts" in Coldstream Street, Yamba to my retail outlets.  Call in and see Jo, have a look at the lovely things she has for sale and book a treatbment.  It is a gorgous place and the bath bombs are to die for.

I have been busy in the last couple of months and another new outlet is The Waterfall Way Centre, Tourist Informatio in Bellingen.  I have a range of pieces there and will add more over the next few months.  Have a look and start thinking about Christmas Gifts. I will be at the Bello Craft Markets on Saturdy 16th August - it is on the Oval at the Sportsground.

I have also added a new larger display case to Ulmarra Arts, Crafts and Collectables and am looking at dates for classes at Ulmarra.  Watch this space. Call in and see Pam in Ulmarra and have a look at my pieces, as well all all the goodies Pam has for sale.

Cheers

What am I up to in April 2014

Posted by Ann Verran on March 29, 2014 at 11:25 PM Comments comments (0)

I have been busy getting ready pieces ready, as I am Artist of the Month at Ferry Park Gallery on the Pacific Highway at Maclean, in May 2014.  It is always a big job, as I try not to duplicate any pieces and have come up with some more interesting pieces for the display.  Come and have a look at Ferry Park Gallery, it is one of the best Art & Craft Galleries I have seen on my travels around Australia.

I have also put some of my pieces into Ulmarra Arts, Crafts & Collectibles - you will find them in Coldstream Street, Ulmarra. Ulmarra is an old riverboat town, about 15minutes south of Grafton and you will find a array of lovely old shop with lots of interesting stuff. Call in and say Hello to Pam, she will make you very welcome.

Remember Quota of Lower Clarence is holding their 3rd Annual Antiques & Collectible Fair at Yamba Bowling Club on 12/13th April 2014.  Funds raised will go to Yamba's New Health Centre, The Jim Agnew Centre as well as other local charities. Come and have a look.


Apple & Grape Festival

Posted by Ann Verran on March 29, 2014 at 11:20 PM Comments comments (1)

I had a great Apple & Grape Festival in Stanthorpe at the beginning of March.  This Festival is held every two years and it was my third time attending.  It was great to catch up with old customers as well as chatting to stall holders who I only see every two years.  The weather was a bit Stanthorpish - beautiful blue skys followed by wind and rain.  No complaints about the rain, the Farmers were in need of it.

We, my sister Margaret and I again stayed at Glen Alpin, a lovely Farmstay on Sugerloaf Road and again Lois and Peter provided us with a warm welcome, comfy beds and lovely breakfasts. We will be back again in two years.

I have had most of March off, for various reasons, mainly car troubles - now fixed I hope, so will see you at Cooli on 13th April, Bellingen 18th and Broad Beach on 19th April for a Big Easter Market.
