We’re excited to hold our 4th market for 2022! Lots of positive feedback has encouraged us to invite more than 20 stallholders to Heritage Reserve and The Coach House in the main street of Mt Torrens and offer you a chance to find unique Christmas gifts. Many regulars will be back with a great variety of products on sale including intricately made cards and Interior décor, mosaics and gemstone trees, candles, diffusers, skin products and photographic prints.
New stalls will feature woven baskets, paintings, wooden toys, birdhouses and cheeseboards, Tupperware, Suncraft shades, and cactus plants. Graham will be out the front of the Reserve with his wonderful plants and inside the Coach House you will find water colours, jams and other conserves, Lions’ cakes and raffle, and second-hand books. Joel will add to the atmosphere with live music, Brooke has her delicious baked goods, and Gumeracha Community Association will have their popular fresh apple juice. Of course, our enticing BBQ will be running all day and Courtney will supply coffees from her van!
As usual, we will have a raffle. This time the 1st prize is 3 nights (option of a 4th) staying at Coffin Bay Hotel- Motel and 2nd prize is a family Christmas Hamper. Tickets are $2 or 3 for $5 and, as well as purchasing them on the day, you will find our dedicated volunteers selling tickets outside Klose’s supermarkets in Birdwood (November, 18th and 25th), Lobethal (18th, 19th, 25th and 26th) and Woodside (25th).
The markets have been an invaluable source of income for the Mt Torrens History Centre, allowing the purchase of special archiving stationery, a laptop and printer (with the necessary paper and inks), filing and display cabinets, office chairs, heaters and a fan. As well, it has enabled members to enrol in courses to acquire skills needed to digitally archive the photos and records held on behalf of the community. This has all contributed to very successful exhibitions, including the recent Centenary of Gumeracha Primary School. Everyone is welcome, so come along on Sunday, November 27th, from 10am to 3pm, and enjoy the day with locals and visitors!
