Showcased Review 2012

The very first Showcased was over the weekend and I decided to go along and see what it’s all about. So as I mentioned before, Showcased was organised by the same folks who run the Sydney Style Markets. And although it was a little smaller than the Sydney Style Markets I visited earlier this year, it was nice to see a quality market visit the Parramatta area.

These blingin’ baby tees and sparkle bangles by Mini Bling are certainly a shining attraction. More bling and some pretty, frilly outfits made me really wish I was 3 again. I wonder if they come in adult sizes O_o

Crafts with a Twist has created some blingtastic stools covered in rhinestones – just gorgeous for a little girl (or big girl’s) room.

Remember Ju Ju Creations from the Sydney Style Markets? Well they are back at Showcased with a million adorable bits and pieces for some very special kids.

So cute, I could totes see little Suri wearing these…

Little red slippers, just adorable.

Sunscreen – check, long sleeved shirt – check, summer hat – CHECK!

Yellow, yellow everywhere! How cute are these yellow crochet shoes?

Christmas ruffles from Twirly Girl. Don’t they just make you want to twirl?

Twirly Girl also offers some super cute tees and mountains of colourful, frilly clothes that would make any little girl squeak with delight.

I couldn’t stop drooling over this blue beauty from SJA Accessories.

The gorgeous SJA Accessories creator was showing off some of her new jewellery delights. I mean, how can you not like her stuff – so colourful, so bold – how about one for each new outfit? Boys take note…

Arhhhhhh…colour overload…

oOOohhh just gorgeous.

This was a handmade colourful gem made by the SJA queen herself. Doesn’t it just scream summer?

A secret drawer of goodies.

And my favourite way to end a post is to show the pop up art that’s happening around the event…Yep kinda looks as random as it looks, but doesn’t it look like Tron and the knights of the round table had a fight? So cool…

Until next time,

Love, Festival Girl

Craft Fair and Antique Valuation | 24 November

The lovely ladies from Our Lady Queen of Peace sent me an invitation to their upcoming Greystanes Craft Fair and Antique Valuation event.

Love Antiques Roadshow but can’t afford to take a trip to the UK to get your valuables evaluated? Why not come along to the Greystanes Craft Fair and Antique Valuation event instead?

For $5 you can get your painting evaluated, even an photo and artist name will do. So not only do you find out if you are sitting on a gold mind, you are also giving to a great cause with proceeds going to Parkinson’s.

With over 35 stalls, it’s a great chance to get some Chrissy presents that are made with love including Christmas decorations, baby wear, home-made décor, kitchen goods, edible treats, scarves and bags, jewellery, potted violets and plants. This is a great social day out for the whole family with traditional Devonshire teas and a fantastic sausage sizzle serving breakfast and lunch from 8am. See you there!!

And for all those little big kids, christmas photos with Santa is a must!
