And that was August…

We had a very sweet pop-up day last Sunday, despite that grey winter day; always a pleasure to see our ‘regulars’ – this now being our fifth day of trading!! – and welcome all the new lovies, too.

Magnolia and Hellebore brought a breath of Jen’s beautiful garden into the room and there was eclectic charm and treats aplenty to assuage grumbling tummies and deliver a little timely joy to heart and soul (how cute are those Owl and Pussycats!!!!)…

 

 

See you all at the Spring pop-up (Sunday September 2nd.) Yay!!

The rounds of the garden: this week at our place(s)…

Goodness gracious, how quickly the little pop-up emporium comes around again! And out in the yard those chilly nights now dawn into milder days that tease us with the promise of spring; the heavenly scent of ‘kiss-me-by-the-garden-gate’ (Lonicera fragrantissima) wafting in the air, and pops of daffodil here and there (which we have to rush to pick before our resident thugs, the cockatoos, swoop in to behead them!) But never fear, there’s still a month of lovely winter cuddles to savour and plenty of time for cosy fireside treats.

This Sunday at Candelo we’ll have our signature seasonal fare: jams and condiments (now including Sangmi’s kimchi) and a lovely variety of baked goodies to tempt all tastes; rich moist spiced rum fruit cake, almond crescents, totally munchie hemp cookies, crostoli rosettes and so much more.

Jen’s still been knitting, Megxx has still been casting and Ginger’s still been hard at work at her jewellers bench. Our house guests (Sangmi and Ernesto) remain in residence and all is well in the world…

 

 

See you on Sunday!

 

 

Reboot towards summer…

For the historically quietest (and climatically most unreliable) Candelo Market period of the year, last Sunday proved to be a gloriously sunny, blue-skied, windless gift of a day.

Jen’s garden provided faux spring cheer with that glorious ornamental apricot blossom and our little market emporium had pops of colour all over the shop to gladden the coolest of hearts…

 

 

How lovely it was to see our regulars!

We’ll be popping back up again on Sunday August 5th.
