Many delights await at Maison Market
The money raised at an event like the upcoming Spring Maison Market is so necessary for the many people in our community who are ill, lack the emotional and financial wherewithal to cope with their suffering and who depend on Hospice to provide this.
The success of the market relies on the generosity of the public – items you no longer need could be treasured by another – and the search is on for all gently but no longer used home and garden treasures. These include furniture, ornaments, vases, lamps, artwork, frames, soft furnishings, carpets, tableware, crockery, baskets, kitchenware, linen, craft items and garden pots and ornaments. Christmas decorations, fabrics, beads, buttons, wool, ribbons, stationery, jewellery, vintage clothing and accessories would also be much appreciated.
Once again we encourage shop owners and interior decorators to come forward with donations that would add to the delightful assortment of old and new, fine items on sale.
Pam Golding, who is sponsoring the Hospice Treasure Hunt for the Maison Market, has offered their premises on Leisure Isle as a drop-off point for all donated items. Alternatively, call 083 448 1934 to have your goods collected.
The market will be held at Amble Ridge Village clubhouse, Sunninghill Drive, which is the first right turn-off after Knysna Private Hospital. This is the same venue of last year, which enables you to view the sale items in comfort and at your leisure. A credit card facility will be available, and there will be tea/coffee and light refreshments for those wishing to take a break from shopping!
Doors open on Friday 29 September, 10:00 to 18:00 and Saturday 30 September, 09:00 to noon. –
