Time for a Change?

stall set up

I did one of my favourite local markets last weekend, the Emu Plains Market at the Balnarring Racecourse on the Mornington Peninsula. There is something special about this market, I’m not sure if its the great setting, all my cool regular customers or just the joy of spending a day outdoors. Anyway, I digress, I was set up early so I took the opportunity to take a quick stroll around the market and check out all the other stalls, there is so much great stuff for sale! But I have to say, I started to get a serious case of stall set up envy…

I love all the vintage pieces I use in my set up, I collected each and every piece, I remember each market, garage sale, op shop and antique shop I discovered them in, but I cant help thinking its time for a change, time for a make over, time for a whole new look set up for Coco Press.

I spent a good hour browsing the local hardware store and pricing materials for my new set up this afternoon, I have done the sketches and all the planning, tomorrow I will get all my goodies together and get started! I cant wait!

So with you as my witness I hereby promise to have my new stall set up ready to rock and roll for the Red Hill Market on April 5th, see you there!

New Letterpress Love

Letterpress Bear Card

I have been working very hard for what seems like a very long time to bring my new card range to life. I started late last year, a quick trip to Africa and many hours of design work later and the first four cards are done.

Then last week I drew a deep breath and placed my biggest paper order to date, scary, but of course we all know it makes good sense to buy in bulk. I didn’t waste a minute and ripped open that big box of paper and got straight into the happy business of printing…

I have to tell you, I really enjoyed printing these cards, the designs and colours just seem…right.

So stay tuned to my twitter and instagram feed, as to celebrate the launch of my new cards I will be hosting a little giveaway-FUN! So if you are not already following me, what are you waiting for?
