This weekend I am packing the car – trestle tables, gazebo, stock, smiles, kids, husband, pram, baby carrier, snacks, gin, sunglasses etc – and heading to York!
York is Western Australia’s oldest inland town, located about 60 minutes’ drive, 100 or-so kms east of Perth. I’ve been meaning to visit York for AGES. Especially since Jenny from Botanicalia Shop at Gallery 152 has been a long supporter of Philippa’s work and stocks studio Nikulinsky. So, when I saw there was a Festival and Market happening I signed up.
On Sunday I will be setting up shop on the corner of Avon Terrace & South Street for the Maker's Market. I'll be debuting a new product at the Market - beautiful pocket mirrors featuring 5 different Philippa Nikulinsky paintings - these aren't available online or in any shops yet and I think (of course) they would make a really lovely present.
Have you been to York? Are you coming/have been to the festival? I hope to see you at the Makers Market on Sunday!
The York Festival runs from September 28 to October 13. You can download the full festival program here.
