Mar­kets stay in High St

Stanthorpe Border Post - - LIFE | WHAT’S ON -

AF­TER the fire in the civic cen­tre and af­ter nearly 12 months on the hill, 85% of our stall­hold­ers urged us to make the show­grounds our home base – and so it is.

We have made our per­ma­nent home at the show­grounds.

It is the same mar­ket, same stall­hold­ers, as well as new ones, and same won­der­ful craft as we had at the civic cen­tre.

We even have our own Cafe de Mar­ket, where you can top up the in­ner­man/woman for fur­ther ad­ven­tures into the crafty world.

It is al­most be­yond be­lief that we have only three Mar­kets in the Moun­tains be­fore the end of the year.

Sun­day will be our next mar­ket day be­fore we ramp up for the Christ­mas rush.

Be an early bird and rock on up to the Stan­thorpe Show­grounds be­tween 8am and noon and sat­isfy that pesky Christ­mas gift list in your bag.

Our clever stall­hold­ers will be very happy to of­fer you their as­sis­tance in dis­cov­er­ing that spe­cial some­thing for a spe­cial per­son.

At this mar­ket, the fundrais­ers will be those mar­vel­lous vol­un­teers who or­gan­ise the hand­i­crafts sec­tion of our agri­cul­tural show each year.

They will be look­ing for ex­tra funds to pro­vide prizes for win­ners in their sec­tion.

Be­ing hand­i­crafters, you can imag­ine their raf­fle will be worth a ticket or two.

Our clever stall­hold­ers will be very happy to of­fer you their as­sis­tance.
