ANOTHER WEEK HAS GONE BY

Well here it is early Sunday morning, and I am sitting here at my desk in our little shop at Carrara Markets..... waiting for that elusive customer.  If you have nothing planned for today, why not pop down/up here to see us.  We have new stock - some fabulous hand-painted bags.  Well worth a look.  

Here is one that I particularly like - it is quite large, would be great as a beach bag or a market shopping bag.

Size: 48 cm x 46 cm

Handmade & Hand-painted onto pure Indian cotton.  Fully lined.

November already.

Where does the time go?  Here it is November already - which means Christmas is only a few weeks away!!

Our little shop at Carrara Markets is slowly gaining strength.  Rainer is busy stocking up on his miniature artworks (great stocking fillers for Christmas gifts), and Carol-Anne is working away at filling up her racks with some exquisite one-of-a-kind wearable art pieces.

Many hours have gone into these creations - using only the best of the best fabrics and laces, vintage and recycled fabric, every one of these garments are a treasure.  Be sure not to miss out, as they are gaining in popularity fast.

The photo here is of an exquisite Bohemian summer dress - hand-made from a vintage hand-stitched linen tablecloth.  Every stitch has been created lovingly by hand.  The patience required for this labour of love is truly from a by-gone era, and is much appreciated by us both, as I hope by you  too.
