The market was well run and held around the Newcastle Harness Racing Club track, Turton Road New Lambton during the day they ran the mini trotts so cute, the races were run with handicaps on some of the horses there were ponies that were twice the size of others.
Before the market opened we quickly did the rounds of the other stalls and came accross a familiar face. I had stopped because of the crocheting and all hand done by twin sisters who were taught to crochet by their mother. I too can crochet and was taught by my grandmother "Gin" (with the G making the g sound like goal) but not like their crocheting I bought the cutest little thongs for my newest cousin, she will be a groovy little diva in them. The crochet bags, beads, water bottle holders and little shoes all done by them.

Arriving back at my stall I spotted cakes and only two stalls down, Jan and her Fantasy Cup Cakes to absolutely die for...... I could not believe someone could make a cupcake like hers for five dollars. So I had lemon meringue cupcake and then well I don't know what the second one was called and THEN I bought five more to take home for mum and the kids. They didn't last very long!

Sunday was spent at Como markets in the local public school, such a lovely school with lots of interesting stalls the weather held out for us and was quiet sunny by the end of the market there was a crowd and everyone was very friendly. Also a market I would like to do again.
