Mar­ket sup­port­ing re­us­able bag maker

Stanthorpe Border Post - - WHAT’S ON LIFE -

ON SUN­DAY, June 10, we have a whop­per mar­ket.

Not only is the fab­u­lous Mar­ket in the Moun­tains open at the Exhibition

Cen­tre at the Stan­thorpe Show­grounds from 8am­noon, but in the arena is the last day of the Queens­land Supreme Sheep Dog Tri­als.

En­joy a de­li­cious morn­ing tea from Cafe de Mar­ket af­ter check­ing out all the re­mark­able hand­made of­fer­ings from smart stall­hold­ers.

And then sit on the ve­randa and watch these clever work­ing dogs do­ing their job.

What’s not to like?

The fundraiser of the day for this mar­ket is the re­source­ful Boomerang Bags ladies.

What a bril­liant idea to

or­gan­ise women who like to sew, mak­ing cloth shop­ping bags from scraps.

Lo­cal busi­nesses buy these bags and hand them out to cus­tomers who need them.

The cus­tomer re­turns the bag to the shop for some­one else to use.

There is a raf­fle to get fur­ther funds to buy all those in­ci­den­tals needed to make more bags, so please sup­port them.
