It feels as though someone took the scissors to the fabric of life and snipped out 2020 and 2021.
Now, suddenly, Melbourne’s Polish Festival at Federation Square is back better than ever on Saturday November 12th (11am - 6pm) after a three year COVID hiatus.
Our shop at 153 St Georges Road, North Fitzroy will be CLOSED on this day to enable us to have our usual stall BUT will be open on Sunday Nov. 13th from 1 - 5pm instead.
Do I remember the routine for this big day? Probably, but I’m feeling a little rusty and am glad to have found some of my old organisational lists.
We will take as much stock to Fed Square as we can squeeze into the limited space of our small van but we always feel quite in the dark about what and how much to take. Customers inevitably ask for pieces we haven’t packed and last time we even rang our son to have him bring some requests down to the festival (it’s not far by tram, we’re not too demanding as parents, I hope).
However, you can help us by letting us know the shape and pattern of any pieces you would like us to bring. Even better, you are welcome to purchase online (or by phone), choose ‘store pickup’ at the checkout so that you’re not charged for shipping and we will have your pieces ready for an easy collection on the day.
We will of course take many mugs and many tealight Christmas trees but don’t have room to pack duplicate pieces. So if you are hoping for example, to purchase a particular tree or two or more identical pieces, please let me know beforehand.
Any pre-purchases or special requests need to reach us no later than November 6th otherwise we possibly won’t have room to bring them. Limited space and my over-enthusiasm for taking as much as possible can lead to marital tensions. Last festival my husband ended up riding his bike down because I used the passenger seat to transport yet another box of gorgeous crockery that I couldn’t bear to leave behind. LOL!
Hoping that many of you can make it to this special event, Heather
