Culverden Christmas Fete

Amanda at her stall at Culverden

Amanda’s officially on the Market/Fete circuit with her inaugural visit at Culverden (about 40mins south of Hamner Springs).  The weather was great – overcast, but not too cold. To put it mildly, let’s just say we’ll be back.  So many people, all with the intention of spending. PS: we’ve since been told by seasoned Marketeers of 15 years that we’ve started at the top of the range – and we were extremely lucky to be able to get in on our first application to this market.  It is by jury selection so we did know that we were lucky to get in.  Because Amanda’s products are quite different to most other jewellery stall holders, people are willing to give her a go – interestingly enough though, there was another Steampunk jewellery stand there and her products were quite similar – definitely along the same idea as Amanda. Amanda’s point of differences are that shes got a lot more of an antique/vintage look as well as she’s not blinging her Steampunk jewellery at all and to quote many people – “it’s delicate, cute and very different”.

After this market we returned to Richmond, Nelson preparing to hit the road in time for the Oamaru Victorian Fete in about a month’s time.
