It’s cre­ated by hand and made with love

Whitsunday Times - - CHILL -

IF YOU love ev­ery­thing hand­made, then there is a mar­ket com­ing to the Whit­sun­days that is es­pe­cially for you.

The Hand­made Expo Mar­ket will re­turn to Air­lie Beach for the third time as they set up shop at Can­non­vale State School on Sun­day.

Ev­ery­thing from home decor to chil­dren's cloth­ing, can­dles and jew­ellery and ev­ery­thing in be­tween will be avail­able at the mar­ket.

The fo­cus of the mar­kets is on items that are hand­made, hand baked and home­grown in the re­gion and it is set to fea­ture a huge range of prod­ucts.

Mar­ket owner Ko­rina Fraser has eight lo­ca­tions through­out Queens­land and has built a solid fol­low­ing through­out the state af­ter the first one be­gun oper­at­ing nine years ago.

She said the Whit­sun­days had been a good choice.

“Air­lie Beach is re­ally good,” she said.

“The area doesn’t have a mar­ket that is a solely hand­made mar­ket,.

“We orig­i­nally just thought we’d bring some­thing a bit dif­fer­ent to the area and this will be our third one now.”

The mar­ket is en­tirely free to at­tend and fea­tures wide aisles that are friendly for all.

Any­one in­ter­ested in hold­ing a stall at the mar­ket can reg­is­ter their in­ter­est on­line at the­hand­made­expo.com.au.

“If any­one makes grows or loves vin­tage they are wel­come to ap­ply to come and hold a stall,” Ms Fraser said.

Stall sizes and prices can be found on the Air­lie Beach ap­pli­ca­tion form on­line.

The quar­terly mar­ket will re­turn in Septem­ber.
