Redcliffe-this Saturday the local!

'The Local goes troppo' is happening this Saturday, 3-9 pm, at the Juice Tank cafe on Oxley Avenue, Margate.
Markets, music, munchies...much, much more besides.
You can check out everything I have been working on over the past year, ranging from coasters featuring old book illustrations, coasters with vintage fabric, felt shaped brooches, crocheted brooches, wallets, clutches and purses, tea cozies, oven mitts, postcard sized artworks... plus more! And of course all the other stall holders will have thier handicrafts, yummy goodies, etc out too.
It will be a fun and relaxed event, music, cocktails, delicious cakes and treats, coffee and fresh juice.

I encourage anyone who heads out for the market to make a day of it, Redcliffe was my home for a few years and has a lot to offer. I loved regularly walking by the shore and having cups of tea with views like this...or being under the stars on the beach.

My top picks for a day out;
start off the day with a walk around the cliffs at Scotts point, with some morning tea (thermos you packed at home, perhaps?) or grab a coffee and a raspberry housecake from Banjos cafe on the waterfront in Redcliffe...

Head over to Scarborough and check out the amazing cabbage tree climbing park(a must if you have kids.)

You can have lunch at the best fish and chip shop in Redcliffe, Suttons seafood on Sutton street, my pick would be the spicy calamari.
In the early afternoon head back over to Scarbourough for a wine from Burroughs wine bar, then it will be time to get on over to the Juice tank! Hope to see lots of people there!
