Handmade Monday #23

This weeks Handmade Monday is dedicated to some of the people 
who I met at the  Mossley Craft Market   this Saturday.   
The market is held every 2 weeks and is in place to bring the people from 
Tameside, Saddleworth and Glossop areas together bringing the spirit
of the community to one place.


 Firstly let me introduce you to Jannicke Brun she is the owner of Mossley Cracker
Specialists in supplying ECO fuel to local community in the form of recycled 
waste materials to make logs for burning.
 Jannike is also one of the organisers of the Mossley Craft Market.

In the background of the above photograph (right) you will see Debbie of 
Refind Creations they bring life back to tired 
objects and turn these objects in to new things.
Like these frying pans which have been turned into clocks.



Then we have a couple of photographs from Symon of
  Restor8 Design Solutions Ltd
Professional Photograph Restorers & Retouchers.
 


Below are some samples from Alan Tolfrey 
Model Buildings - Portraits with a difference. Unique, Individual and Unusual 

Next we have Lucy Allen of Knitted By Lulu
Lucy is new to the world of craft markets -this is here first one.
Lucy has only been knitting since February 2011.  
She decided that she needed something to do while watching televison in the evenings.
Lucy told me that she taught herself to knit by watching videos on YouTube.
I have to say after seeing Lucys work I would never have guessed that she has 
only been knitting for a few months. 
Here are a few pics of Lucy's creations and the lady herself.

Oh and finally here is a pic of my table

Thank you for visiting I hope the other stall holders see this post - I've sent them a link.

It's really only a small market but it's new and people are booking onto it already which is great as its such a quirky place - an old industrial unit.
