The Millers Flat Flea Market

A highlight on the Millers Flat social calendar, the Flea Market (although now it has undergone a name change to the Millers Flat Art and Craft Market) is always held in early December.  At only $10 to hire a table, anyone can come along to display and sell their wares.  I hadn’t been for a number of years (and most of my memories date from the early 90s) so it was great to go again!

From the chocolate wheel, to kiddies photos with Santa, to jams, to Jude Omond’s famous sponge cakes, to plants, to ladies knickers for the more mature customer, there’s something for everyone 😉

This year I was helping out on the Millers Flat Hall Committee stall.  Mum had brought down a number of baked goods and preserves, along with some tomato and bean plants.  Jude Omond had her sponges (but if you miss out on buying one you could always try your hand at the chocolate wheel where they feature as a prize too).  Here we are nearly at the end of the day once the punters have bought everything;

Here you can see everything in full swing (such as it is).  Note the chocolate wheel on stage left and Santa waiting for customers stage right.  This is in the old hall part of the building.

In the newer lounge part you can find plant sales and Daphne’s Kitchen – see the happy clients partaking of their cakes and biscuits to the left;

I thought Daphne’s Kitchen needed a few close-ups – check out the selection of home-baked country fare, mmm mmm.

And as for the prices, well I think they speak for themselves;

So we’ll see you all down in Millers Flat this December to support the local community at the Art and Craft Market!
