Perth Alternative Markets 2

Last Sunday I helped my friend run the second Perth Alternative Markets. We arrived early and I help set up the tables, as my friend can't do a lot of lifting at the moment. We also took turns DJing for the five hours that the markets ran for.

There were more stalls than the last time it ran, and I think everyone had a lot of fun. I bought a few things from other stalls, including a rosary and a vintage ferret stole.

This time I made a few things to sell. I hand painted some items with spooky designs :)

Spiderweb tealight holders

Bat and spiderweb vase.

Spiderweb plate. Someone bought this! :)

Spiderweb bowl. This got sold too, the girl I sold it to loved all my stuff :)

I had some handmade dolls too. I did everything, sewing the clothes and gluing the hair.

My famous Goth Brownies that everybody bought. I seriously only had five left by the end of the day. I make them with Cadbury chocolate inside, the white squares are white chocolate and the brown is caramello

Here's what I wore!

Sisters of Mercy shirt: Ebay
Skirt: Big W
Stripe leggings: Yours Clothing
Boots: Dr. Martens

Lots of stuff being sold by some of my friends.

So many things. Not to mention that our venue is really beautiful.

I hope that I get to help my friend and run another market with her. I had lots of fun.

Oh wow! I love the glass bowls with webs. I may have to steal your idea. ;)
The dolls are too cute too!
You are so talented.

This looks awesome! And I love your tealight holders and dolls, not to mention those brownies! I'm starting to wish I lived in Australia.

Oh how neat EVERYTHING looks.
Looks like, you had yourself a really good time.

I wish I knew of something like this in my area. How ever did you find out about it?

Bethezda: I don't mind you stealing my idea, it's not hard to put spiderwebs on things :)

BellaDonna: It's not great everywhere in Australia. We're having a tough time trying to find a venue for the club.

Mari Mortem: My best friend started this event herself, so I was there helping her from the beginning :) I really love helping my friends out.
