The specialist market is held once a year and features a variety of seasonal local produce, home cooking and handcrafted wares.
“The market provides Upper Hunter Homegrown and Handmade enterprises with an avenue to showcase and sell their handcrafted wares, home cooking and local fresh produce – many of which are unique to the region,” says market organiser Amelia Wilkinson.
Market items available for sale include locally designed and crafted fashions and accessories, jewellery, linen, infant’s, ladies, men and children’s apparel, locally handcrafted furniture, locally baked savoury and festive season sweet treats and preserves, sauces, meat, cheese, yoghurt, flowers plus fresh produce and espresso coffee.
“We’re excited to be incorporating a number of Homegrown + Handmade Learning Workshops on the day,” says Ms Wilkinson. “Deb Fergusson from Sew Scone will assist people in making a Christmas apron at her workshop, as one example. The market will also showcase a local creation’s fashion parade so it’s certainly a unique format that will hold appeal to a large audience.”
“Any schools that wish to fundraise via the December market will have their stall fees waived,” added Ms Wilkinson. “Items for sale must however meet the market criteria of seasonal local produce or home cooking or handcrafted wares”.
The December market will also feature Market Money Prize Draws and free face painting for children. EFTPOS facilities will be available and a great atmosphere is assured.
The market will raise funds for Scone’s Magic Garden project with $5 from each market stall booked donated to this worthy local cause. The Magic Garden is a custom designed playground at Scone Public School that provides an array of sensory equipment to benefit the daily lives of special needs children. The playground provides opportunities for the children to learn, explore, calm down and assists in allowing them to lead happy and healthy lives.

The 2013 Agriplex Group Westpac Rescue Helicopter Ball was declared ‘a resounding success’ by enthusiastic guests after the black tie event concluded in the wee hours of Sunday morning. This was the third time the ball has been held in Scone with all proceeds donated to the Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service.
“Tickets were keenly sought by a large number of local businesses and we were delighted with the turnout,” said Agriplex Group director David Carter. “As always it is heartening to see so many people dig deep to support a charitable cause.”
This year’s ball was held at the Scone Golf Club and featured live performances from dynamic husband and wife team and 20-time “MO” winners Paul Martell and Jane Scali plus Australia’s foremost piano vocal entertainer Scot Finnie.
The Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service plays an integral role in assisting critical care patients across NSW. The community owned and operated aeromedical search and rescue service costs $11 million annually to operate. The three helicopters and crew service the Hunter, Central Coast, Mid North Coast, Tamworth & New England 24 hours a day and seven days a week. In addition to vital search and rescue missions the helicopters provide paramedic supported patient transfers from accident scenes to hospitals [primary transfers]. The helicopters also transfer patients between hospitals [secondary transfers]. In the last financial year Scone, Muswellbrook and Tamworth alone required 29 primary missions and 132 secondary missions.
Attendees to this year’s Agriplex Group Westpac Rescue Helicopter Ball also took advantage of a live auction and a raffle that was drawn on the night. Ross Campbell from Primo Meats paid top price of $3,600 for a 3-night stay at the luxury Kangaroo Beach Lodges on Kangaroo Island, South Australia.
In addition to the Agriplex Group major sponsors for the evening included The Event Storeroom, Scone Outdoors, The Martin Group of Companies and Kangaroo Beach Lodges.

The local property market is heating up and prospective buyers will be delighted to see one of Scone's signature properties listed for sale.
Located in Gray Street in Satur the magnificent 4 bedroom residence has sweeping views back towards the racecourse and is perfectly designed to appeal to the growing family.
The EVENT Storeroom was commissioned to style the property to ensure maximum buyer appeal.
"In metropolitan areas it is increasingly common to style properties for sale," says The EVENT Storeroom director Amelia Wilkinson. "Professionally incorporating designer furniture is the most effective way to spark interest and attract buyers, create a stylish coordinated look that stands out from other homes and maximise a home's potential sale value".
Rural areas have a large number of high end properties for sale but there has been a gap in the local market when it comes to styling them. Vendors had to look to suppliers as far afield as Sydney or Melbourne if they wanted assistance in hiring furniture or obtaining specialist styling advice. The EVENT Storeroom recognised the market need and stepped up to meet it.
"We can complement your existing furniture or create a totally new look to suit your property," says Amelia. "You would be surprised at the relatively small cost of this service. The return on investment can be remarkable."
"If you want your property to stand out from the crowd it is a service you should seriously consider when you are preparing your house for sale. We have an extensive product range, have been commissioned to style a number of properties ranging from $400,000 to $1m+, and are well placed to assist vendors".
Listing agents for 52 Gray Street are Landmark Townsend (Adam O'Regan), McCallum Inglis (Angus Patterson) and Ray White (Stephen Bell).
For further information about property styling and how The EVENT Storeroom can maximise the appeal of your property to potential buyers please contact Amelia Wilkinson 0400099761 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Angela Lavender (Country Culture) and Megan Trousdale (Odgers and McClelland Exchange Store) will discuss how the retail sector looks at new and existing designers and how branding your product improves your chances of attracting buyers. Nick Bradford will talk about how he and his wife Kylie developed Sheer Bliss and the Woollen Mill from a small business based in their Sydney home to become a successful national and international seller of fashion-dyed yarns, hand-knitted garments and fine Australian Wool products.
Market coordinator and director of The EVENT Storeroom Amelia Wilkinson said "we are delighted to have the Scone Homegrown + Handmade Markets partner and support this seminar. Markets typically offer an initial platform for individuals to showcase their ideas and creations. Markets provide an informal marketplace which gives people an opportunity to put their creativity to the test. In so many instances markets prove to be the first step in a successful enterprising journey for people without the investment of a physical or online shopfront".
The annual Festive + Summer Scone Homegrown and Handmade Markets will be held on Saturday 21 December 2013 at the Uniting Church Grounds, 76 Main Street, Scone from 8am-2pm. The market charter is to offer Upper Hunter Homegrown and Handmade enterprises an avenue to showcase and sell their handcrafted wares and home cooking and local fresh produce. To enhance the variety of choice for market shoppers, select vendors from outside the region who sell homegrown produce and handcrafted goods not already being offered by local market stallholders are also invited.
"We look forward to welcoming vendors and stallholders to our markets whose products fit within our market charter," said Amelia. "All stallholders that have booked in and paid their market stall fees by close of business Thursday 24 October will be eligible to win one of two tickets (worth $65 each) to the Make and Do Seminar which will be drawn by manager of the Michael Reid Gallery, Michelle Kludas. Our two winners will be notified by phone on Friday 25 October with winners also being announced on the EVENT Storeroom and Scone Homegrown + Handmade Market Facebook pages".
