Well that was Autumn!

Hey everyone! Can you believe 2020!? The last time I opened up the blog to write something here we were recovering from the bushfires, wiping our brows, and saying phew that was a close one! Then the coronavirus blew up out of nowhere and hold on, the ride starts to get really interesting. 2020 the year of destruction and new life. So let's jump back a few months, Miss Molly's was getting ready to dive into another Handmade Canberra, but a week or so out of the March market it was beginning to look a bit shakey. I think we spent more...

However finding work-life balance is our main concern at the moment and something we are working hard to achieve.   We...

At the time, in the late 90’s, it was a very unusual road to walk and trying to explain to grandparents, aunties, uncles and friends my reasoning was often difficult.

A trip to River and Wren

A trip to River and Wren

We packed up our Miss Molly market stall and headed for the hills this last weekend. Over the great divide to the Riverina of NSW and River and Wren Market in Wagga Wagga.  We had heard some wonderful whispers on the grape vine about this market and we were not disappointed. What a fabulous, makers market, filled to the brim with beautiful artisan handmade goods, great food and even some live country music. It really captured the spirit of a country market. River and Wren has won regional business awards and on the day we could definitely see why.  Omeo....
