Salamanca Market October 20 2018

Good news! 'Pansy, Fern & April' dolls will again be available at Salamanca Market in Hobart next Saturday. Find us in site 272 which is a centre aisle site near the Battery Point end of the market. 
I will be making lots of lovely Christmas decorations this week. Customers love these and often tell me that they buy one lovely decoration each year to add to their collection, and isn't it lovely that this year it's one of mine! A new one this year is a little Christmas house with a Christmas fairy inside! Also, I think I will make little white horses with a tiny fairy perched on their back! 
Of course, I make lots of little doll sets just perfect for presents. A popular thing at Christmas is the custom doll family. I make a little set of dolls that resembles your family. You can send me a photo or a description and I'll create a little family just for you. Contact me at pansyfernapril.etsy.com
See you Saturday!

Salamanca Market October 13 2018

Good news!(not at all fake!) 'Pansy, Fern & April' dolls will again be available at Salamanca Market in Hobart. Find us in site 277 which is a centre aisle site near the entrance to the Salamanca Arts Centre. You will notice if you make it to the market this week that Christmas items are beginning to appear! Bit scary isn't it? Yes Christmas is on its way, so it's a great idea to be prepared and not rushed.
 I am starting my lovely Christmas items- Santa, Mrs Santa,elves, fairies and angels as well as Nativity sets. I make a Nativity set that includes Mary, Joseph, Baby Jesus, a manger, a donkey and a sheep. If I have time I also make a larger set including three Kings, a shepherd, an angel and a couple more animals!  These sets are great as unlike most Nativity sets available, they are safe to be played with  (children over three years), so children can re-enact the true story of Christmas.
See you Saturday at the market!

we have also been popping up on instagram lately @pansyfernapril   !!!
'The Nativity' set of dolls $45.00

Salamanca Market September 29 2018

Hi , find 'Pansy, Fern & April' dolls at Salamanca Market in Hobart next Saturday! We will be in site 261 this week- on the grass side near the Battery Point end of the market. 
I've been receiving some interesting custom orders lately! Some lovely big families are great fun to make, and it must be exciting for the new owners as well. I'm also making lots of Aussie animals to be used as part of the display around a very Aussie Christmas cake! Also I have recently made a couple of dolls for some clever children who love to imagine and then see what I can come up with to make their ideas come to life! Their latest idea was for a lady with tomato sauce coloured plaits, brown boots and forest green clothing! Very imaginative! See below for the lovely little dolls I made for them.
I will not be at Salamanca Market next weekend (6 Oct) as I will be at a special market at the Derwent Entertainment Centre- The Miniature Enthusiasts show is on! Come and see me there (Sat 6 10am- 4.30pm, Sun 7 10am- 4.00pm) and you can also see incredible (really small!) displays and purchase lots of lovely little things from lots of other miniature (in stock, not stature!) stallholders.
See you Saturday!

Custom orders are lots of fun! contact me at pansyfernapril.etsy.com with your ideas!

Salamanca Market September 15 2018

If you are heading to Salamanca Market in Hobart this Saturday, you will find 'Pansy, Fern & April' dolls in site 268. This is a centre aisle site near the Battery Point end of the market. 
I will be making lots of storybook sets this week as I sold lots last week! I think everyone is starting to think about Christmas presents! Well done them! I love customers that engage in a little forward planning!
A set I have just listed on etsy is 'The Princess and the Pea' . This set includes a lovely little princess, plus 4 mattresses, 1 decorated top blanket, 2 peas(in case 1 gets lost!) and the story presented on a parchment style scroll. It is all fitted neatly into a little box, and makes a lovely gift. 
The story, if you have forgotten, goes like this:
A prince is searching for a true princess to be his wife, and is having a fair bit of trouble (poor prince!). A lovely girl comes on a dark stormy night to his castle and claims to be a princess. The prince's mum, the Queen devises a clever way to work out if she really is a princess- she gives her a bed to sleep on which is piled high with mattresses. Under the bottom one she places a pea- the idea being that only a true princess would be able to feel it under all of those mattresses! Of course she does......... and they all live happily ever after.
See you at the market on Saturday!
or order at pansyfernapril.etsy.com
'The Princess and the Pea' - $30.00

lots and lots of mattresses! Very comfy!
