Sneak Peek - knitabulous yarn stand at the Old Bus Depot Market


Today Donna and I did a dry run of our stall for Sundays Celebration of Wool Day at the Old Bus Depot Markets in Canberra.

Power tools were utilised!

Here is a sneak peek of the display - I'm pretty pleased with how colourful it looks, especially the project bags.


So, if you're kicking around on Sunday with a bit of time on your hands, why not take a trip to Canberra and come say hi? I'd be absolutely thrilled if even one person I don't know did this! So much so that I'm offering a free skein of yarn to the first person whom I have never met who reads this blog introduces themselves and mentions this post on Sunday.

Ah well, that rules me out then. Can't get a flight out to Canberra on such short notice. :)

What a lovely display! I'm sure you will be mobbed by knitters.

Have fun!

You having a stall at Bendy? I'm asking as a cash-packin customer!

I can't make it on Sunday, but I hope everything goes really, really well for you. (My ungenerous self has had moments of hoping you don't do so well so that there might be some goodies available via your shops, but I'm telling it to be quiet).

I'm here on bell's directive! Can't wait to see yours stall on Sunday!

Rose Red said...

Oh gee it looks fantastic!! I reckon you guys will be sold out in no time! (although like Lyn I wouldn't mind if there were some leftovers for the online shop...maybe a nice fiftyfifty in a red, or green, or purple, or silvery grey, or or or...!). Not that I've got any knitting time at the moment anyway!!
