I have now got my insurance and have successfully applied for the Erina handmade craft market (20th Nov), Avoca Beachside Markets (4th Sunday of every month) and the Central Coast Christmas Fair (11th Dec).
So a few months ago now I had this light bulb moment...What could I do with all the left over fabric from my collection??? LIGHT BULB!!!.... I could make bikinis and beach bags and sell them at the local markets over summer! It had been so long since I felt inspired (6months) so I started straight away with this idea. During this time Clarksons (a local warehouse at Erina http://www.facebook.com/pages/Clarksons-Cash-Carry/129870920423632) had just received a truckload of fabric from a store that had recently closed down. I ended up finding some beautiful prints including silks and mesh fabrics that could be used to make Kaftans!
It was time to start designing, sewing and researching so I could start applying for the local markets ASAP!
