23  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / AUSTRALIA / craft fairs/markets in perth or WA on: November 03, 2008 12:00:47 AM
hi.. does anyone know where there are any of these around here?? the only ones i know of are:

gosnells markets, thursday-sunday(hard to get a stall there though, its usually full with regulars)
maddington swap meet/markets - every sunday at the carpark. have sold here once, and going back again. im only a teen and getting rid of all my old stuff, and some of my handmade jewellery, everything was cheap and i got rid of alot of stuff.. made about 50$ in one morning. sellers 6am - 11am. buyers come at 7.
canningvale markets (reaaally big, lots of people!!! heaps of space..)
subiaco  markets - not sure if theyre still around??
midland markets - not sure about how to go about getting stalls, etc.
freo markets & E-shed - friday to monday (i think!)
magic markets - every 2nd sunday of the month..william st. perth ($20 for stall... although it is popular and lots of retro/indie designers go there)
armadale markets - jull st. i think.. in spring/summer time they get all these fresh produce and crafters out to have stalls i nthe middle of the street between the shops. dont think its started yet, although ive seen an ad asking for crafters.
perth markets - where the library/museum kinda is.. people set up stalls and sell 2nd hand things, on the pavement and also display their crafted items.
kalamunda markets - i heard about this, been there once i think. not sure about days, costs, etc.

also, every year theres that quilting/craft show where you can get a stall ..i think its usually in challenge stadium! and.. kelmscott show usually puts an ad out for crafters to get a stall up! very family oriented, and it helps to have cheaper wares cause everything at shows t hese days are so expensive! so if they score a great buy at the stalls, theyll keep going back.

add to the list if you know any more craft fairs/events/market places!  Smiley
24  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / The Mighty Boosh Swap? on: October 03, 2008 01:20:40 AM
Love this show. I used to waddle home to watch it a few years ago, back when i was in first year of highschool. I used to think it was the most hilarious, twisted show ever.. Well, i still do. But hey, i was 13 at the time, everything freaked me out! Thankfully I'm nearly 18  Grin ....And now ive finally just seen season 3! Yay! Anyone else wanna do a MB themed swap??

I'm seeing disco mirror ball suits, boosh arm patches, noir name badges & customised jackets!

oh, and a pink tshirt that says

"quit with the fucking crunch!"
25  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Packet/s of Seeds Swap! on: October 03, 2008 01:15:00 AM
I'm really into gardening and DIY composting right now.
So, I had an idea. I'm in Australia, where I live the shops have boring packets of fruits, vegies & flowers, etc. Well, to me anyway, it's all i've ever been growing! I was thinking that we could dig out some seeds from our own personal collections [put some in little baggies, label them with a pic and instructions - etc.], or go out and buy a couple of packets (or both) and then send them to our swap partners, so we can get back into gardening and grow some plants out of the norm?  This can be australia only - or international??
