Canberra’s award-winning Old Bus Depot Markets will be bustling with excited littlies at the special Kids in the Shed theme day, to be held on Sunday 17 June.
“This is a day when we invite visitors to our market to find their inner child or just enjoy this family day out for children, parents and grandparents,” said Old Bus Depot Markets Manager, Morna Whiting.
“There has been great revival of handcrafting toys, clothing, and home wares for children, and on this special day the markets will have a great selection of original items available catering just for them.
“Parents come along to browse and buy from the wonderful range of children’s items handmade by our talented stallholders,” Morna continued.
Kids in the Shed will include an additional 30 stallholders all focusing on things just for children. Stalls will include bright, funky, modern and wearable handmade clothes for little boys and girls, the latest and grooviest accessories, handcrafted toys, art works for kids’ rooms, specialist gear for newborns and much more. Plus there will be entertainment throughout the day including Milo the clown, pony rides and a jumping castle.
One participating stallholder, Marja-Leena Montonen will be at Kids in the Shed to show her range of original, vibrant works which impart a sense of fun and whimsy including very popular original paintings, canvas prints, posters, hand painted bags and very popular greeting cards.
“It’s worth the visit just for the markets’ lively atmosphere and the buzzing energy levels of all the kids. With lots of entertainment, face painting, yummy things to eat, and stacks of products especially for kids, the place teems with little ones having loads of fun,” Morna concluded.
