Margaret River Farmers Market,  count me in.

If we had a couple of drivers willing to get up and out maybe a few of us could go and have a grazing breakfast while shopping . Have to be back in time to get the bus.

You are up early too chookie.

I am in.

Thanks for confirming everything CP. Farmer;s Market sounds like a great idea. I'm definitely in. Have been to Margaret River twice in the last three months but didn't manage to get there so would love to finally make it this time.

When the other sleepyheads get up and read this I bet we have a lot who want to go. What fun.

Glad to see this is all coming together whilst I've been having my beauty sleep.  Count me in for the farmers market, someone will have to wake me that morning though - it is probably going to be at some ungodly hour which isn't on my clock and unless I get a cup of coffee, milk no sugar in bed, waaa I won't be coming ;)

Any divas will soon get sorted out by the mob CP, they will be left standing and the rest of us will have moved on.  No time for divas myself, just go with the flow is what I say. 

Gretchen you pinched my idea with one of those photos but I have 2 ideas I'm working on at the moment - just have to do something about them.

CP have you got the goody bags arranged, hopefully you have added them into the cost of the weekend or if you like we could all bring our own if you tell us what size to get.  We could all pack a pillow case to do the job, it would be free and hold plenty.

Just had a look on their brochure nazar and there is one on the 25 August. I'm hoping to go to the Farmers Markets here in Margs today. Will take my camera. We have to wait for someone to come around first so they may be late and we might only just get the leftovers. JD thats actually a good idea about the pillowcases. I've been looking around for bags and the cheapest ones I could find are $1ea (which doesn't sound like much, but for something that is possibly going to be thrown out...seems like a waste). I might look online and see if I can see something.

We could supply 30 plastic bags 60cm long and 24 cm wide with gussets, no handles though and I'm not sure if they would be thick enough for heavy sharp articles

Just been thinking have lots of bags so could put 1 inside other. That should make them thick enough.

I say go to the op shop and buy the most colourful pillow slip you can get . Contest for the most colourful and no making your own. Stress free remember.
