Happy V day!!!
Wow, What a great little community, little- as in population under 500! There were many many people who traveled to hold a store in the gorgeous Gooloogong Log Cabin, and many who traveled to check it out!
It was hot today, very very hot.
I caught up with the stall holders, found out a bit about what they do and who they are… all such lovely people.
The live music was just A-MAZ-ING! Voices of angels.
As you look through these images, you’ll see what stores were there and what is on offer, there is a pop up hair studio, flowers, pop-up Grenfell bakery, soaps, homemade jams and scones, clothing, Jamberry nails, Mary-Kay makeup, home decor, key cutting, the list goes on!
Once you’ve had a walk around- Goolie pub is across the road open for an amazing feed, icy cold coke (or beer!).
There was this one story that really stood out to me and touched my little soul…
I was speaking to Maddy, from stall: Maddy & Mum- what these guys do is amazing! They create dresses for the Foundation which is where women donate their wedding dresses, Maddy & Mum created little tiny dresses for precious babies of families who have suffered the unimaginable stillbirth or death of their baby, families who are or have gone through the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit or families who are impacted on by a child’s life-limiting illness or special needs. PLUS they also create capes for Capes 4 Kids Australia which is all about:
Kids cannot get enough of super heroes, those “caped crusaders” who make the world a safer place. Our little crusaders facing hospitalisation, medical procedures, and treatments need all the help they can get, to be brave, manage their fears, listen carefully and co-operate with instructions, to “get through” whatever must be endured. Play is essential for happiness and successful coping and Capes 4 Kids Australia Inc. can magically turn a child into a superhero and we all know how powerful and brave they are.
The Markets are held every second month, on the second Sunday!
Hope to see you at the next one, there is so many treasures to be found.
Support your local communities and get involved, thanks for asking me to capture this unique market… I hope it continually grows.
