Heading towards Winter..2017

(subtitled: Where is this year vanishing to?) It's a lovely day outside.. autumn at its best with little wind, fewer clouds and the need to discard any warmth saving clothing which we put over the standard leggings and a tunic! However I know this won't last and the winter markets are soon upon us with the first Little Big Market on the 6th of May (at Coronation Park at the Mount) and lots of others to follow. We have gone from having a market a month some years ago to finding it is now unusual to have a weekend off...

Barisa's spreading its wings

Posted by Barb Hudson on

Hi, we have lots of exciting things on the horizon... We now have accounts on Instagram and Twitter if you'd like to follow us and see what the studio is producing... we aren't just a market stall! And it is a quick way to keep an eye on what's being made... and a 'first chance' to buy one off accessories. The blog on here will also feature some of the things made but it will not be as frequent (once a week rather than more often.) On Instagram we are barisa_nz and on Twitter you'll find us on @barisa_nz  (you can,...

Moving forward into winter months

Posted by Barb Hudson on

After a busy summer running at least one, often two and occasionally three markets a weekend we've now settled into the winter months.

While the winter months are certainly quieter on our market scene it is still a great opportunity to engage with our regular customers and to make contact with new ones in the hope...

The busyness of the last few weeks and only two elephant bracelets exist

Posted by Barb Hudson on

What a diverse few weeks have just gone by.. the third term issue of Good Teacher Magazine was uploaded on Monday... again it's 80 pages of interesting reading... Usually I can suggest a few favourites but not this time! It was pretty amusing to be contacted by a national company today to see if they were too late to be included!!! perhaps next term I'll send them a reminder... I loved that the first person to 'like' the magazine on the facebook page was a teacher from Syria.. I still marvel at the magazine being so international. You can find the direct...

Merry Christmas has gone ...now we can head into the New Year

Posted by Barb Hudson on

What a lovely time of the year Christmas and New Year are... in my life, it's winding down from work and being able to concentrate on developing and creating new ideas. Then there are the markets!. Christmas in the Park ended in a very wet windy evening which was a real pity as the general vibe was terrific and those people who did venture out into the 'scotch mist' were all very good-humoured and prepared to enjoy themselves despite the unfortunate weather. That said once the heavens opened and the rain began bucketing down we were all pretty relieved to pack...
