Stands for all in sunny Mitchell

Mitchell mar­kets turn on the charm

The Western Star - - NEWS -

THE Queens­land Coun­try Women’s As­so­ci­a­tion Christ­mas Mar­kets had a day to re­mem­ber as items of all shapes and sizes were on dis­play in Mitchell.

Keen shop­pers pe­rused each stand, want­ing to get their hands on one of many hand­made items.

Un­der a hot sun, lo­cals and vis­i­tors shared jokes, laughed and main­tained a fes­tive spirit that added to the at­mos­phere.

Whether it was beau­ti­ful cards from Bar­bara Humphrey’s and Carol Ras­mussen’s stand, as­sorted items from Kelly MacDon­nell’s I Mo­made or Geoff Thomp­son’s gen­uine kan­ga­roo leather belts and whips, there was some­thing for every­one.

Shop­pers could take a break at any point by re­lax­ing un­der­neath a mar­quee pro­vided.

The event was the sec­ond of the year, with the mar­kets last go­ing on dis­play back in June.

No doubt next year’s event will be an even big­ger oc­ca­sion.
