The Olive Tree Markets

Posted by Nadine on April 10, 2013 at 9:05 AM

Market Day


One of my favourite market’s in the Hunter was held over the weekend. They’ve had a pretty unlucky run with the weather gods in 2013 so when the weather was clear on Saturday morning I packed up and pushed Little L and his Dad out the door. Not too hot and not too cold - perfect for The Olive Tree Market at The Junction Public School in Newcastle.




 

It was busy from early on in the day; perhaps other people had the same idea as me - get in quick in case the weather turned unfriendly.

The Olive Tree Markets are an eclectic mix of fashion, home wares, jewellery, printmaking, repurposed vintage goods, design, photography, textiles, art, ceramics, wood and metal work, painting, and handmade clothing for children and adults alike, handmade toys plus a host of other products. There is yummy food to eat (The Sweet Boutique are my favourite stall thanks to their Red Velvet cupcakes), musicians playing and other activities to keep you, and any accompanying little people, happy, fed, hydrated and entertained.

This trip to The Olive Tree Market had more purpose than my usual wandering through the stalls. I am at the start of a process to redesign the interiors of our home but can’t commit to the idea of smashing through walls. I’ve decided to go down a less scary path of looking for simple ways to make change through decor and design. The main areas of focus are the living room, main bedroom and Little L’s room - now that he has most definitely moved from baby to toddler status.

My visit to The Olive Tree Market on Saturday was about finding inspiration. I like the idea of buying local so my aim is to use unique pieces from around the Hunter to mix in with what I currently have. I found some great ideas on Saturday. The lampshades and cushion covers below from Hause of Glassborow were among my favourite. The colours schemes and designs can all be done individually so that you can get unique pieces.


 

Sketch & Jones also gave me some good food for thought about easy ways to update both the main bedroom and Little L’s room without spending a fortune.





 Their brightly printed pillow cases and cushion covers in a variety of prints and colours, set against a plain white linen, will give the pop of colour I am looking for in these rooms. Simple, effective and won’t break the budget!

The Olive Tree Market is held on the first Saturday of the month at ‘The Junction Public School’. Regardless of the weather, except of course if any of the crazy weather experienced earlier this year comes back - gale force winds and market stalls don’t go together. The next market will be held on Saturday 4th May, the weekend before Mother’s Day in case anyone has some present buyers looking for inspiration…..
