Bruny Island market


Easter weekend usually marks the end of summer markets for me, and the last one I went to was the Bruny Island Easter Carnival.  The carnival was held at Alonnah, on South Bruny, and the special attraction was a day of woodchopping championships, a very australian event.  I’ve seen lots of woodchopping, and I didn’t think about taking any photos outside, but took lots of the market stalls.

I’m having trouble getting photos to appear in the right places, so they will be part of a separate post.
Anyway, there was the usual array of arts and crafts people, 3 different styles of cards- photographic cards of things tasmanian, scenery, birds, etc;   iris folding, which resembles a crazy log cabin style design, but using coloured papers instead of fabric; and another using decoupage techniques; knitted hats, scarves and socks; handmade jewellry;  bamboo and hemp clothing; secondhand book sale, and of course a wonderful cake stall.  The lady responsible for most of the baking has a very high reputation for wonderful wickedly full-of-calourie cakes, tortes and gateaux, so the table is cleared very early in the day.
The next regular market is in 2 weeks time on Mothers Day 8th May.  The Snug Market is held every month on the second Sunday, but I won’t be there for May June or July, returning for the August market.
