A last minute reminder: if you have sent your application in, but haven’t received an e-mail from us in response, let us know NOW!  The most likely reason is that we haven’t received your photos – if you think this might be you, send them in now!!


Apply Now!

Wow, winter has flown by and spring is upon us – that means the time for the next Elizabeth Handmade Market must be drawing near!  In fact, it’s only just over a week until applications close, so if you’re interested in being part of our next event, don’t delay – head straight over to our applications page!

Aside from the gorgeous handmade goodies, the delicious food, the stunning jewellery, the fabulous children’s clothing and toys, and the wonderful papercraft (oh, we could go on and on!)…and of course, the magnificent fundraising for Elizabeth Home…there’s another super reason to make sure you don’t miss out on this November’s Elizabeth Handmade Market.  It will be the last event until at least November 2015!  Christine and Amy are taking a year out, and will reassess continuing the market next year.  So be absolutely sure to save 21 November 2014 in your diary – you really don’t want to miss this one!

Don’t forget – NOW is the time to get those applications in!  We’d love to see you there!

Thank you to everyone who made our 4 April 2014 event possible – our wonderful stall-holders, of course, and our stellar customers who keep coming back with their friends!  Not to forget all those volunteers who give up their time to make the night run smoothly, from helping out on the door to cooking and serving at the BBQ – a HUGE thank you to all of you.

4 April…here we come!

Well, the summer has been rushing by and now it’s time to start planning for the next Elizabeth Handmade Market!
The date has been set for 4 April, and NOW is the time to get those applications in.  If you or someone you know has a passion for designing and making something special – clothing, jewellery, accessories, papercraft, candles, ceramics, art works…anything unique and of high quality – we’d love to hear from you.  Pop over to our application page and submit your details - we’ll be selecting our stall-holders very soon, so no dilly-dallying!
(We’d just like to apologise to anyone who has been attempting to contact us without success lately – our e-mail system is malfunctioning and causing endless frustrations.  We think we have responded to everyone who has submitted both their application and photos, but if we’ve missed you please contact us!  Because of these issues, we haven’t set a definite closing date for applications, but we are planning to be selecting our stall-holders in the last week of February.)
