Little Papercup - The Stall!

Here's a few pics from our latest stall at the Newcastle Farmers Market.

We stock lovely papery / arty bits and bobs from wonderful independent artists, designers and creatives. Yay! Come & say Hi!

We're there EVERY sunday 8am - 1pm. That's right, I get up at 6am each sunday to peddle wares (and buy lovely locally produced groceries). But I wouldn't have it any other way cos the crowd is fab and the coffee is soooo worth getting up for! Plus I have the lovely company of fellow artist and wonderful friend Robyn McPherson :)

To The Beach

In the morning on Easter Sunday (whilst driving Miffy home from the dog beach) I stumbled across something awesome!!!!

It was artist Trevor Dickinson a.k.a Newcastle Productions painting an amazing mural of the Newcastle Baths on Hunter Street.

If you're in Newy and you haven't seen it, you really must! It's on Hunter Street between Crown and Brown sts (where the old Lucky Country Hotel used to be).

Trevor captures the iconic and not so iconic buildings and features of Newcastle City's landscape.
His latest exhibition 100 Letterboxes samples the ordinary and extraordinary letterboxes that can be found in the suburbs of Newcastle.

Trevor has also released The Newcastle Australia Annual 2011 which you can purchase here
