I need a car counter.....there are just SO MANY people visiting this great little town at the moment.  Most are coming to see the refurbished Callington Mill.  [ Sadly the Companion Bakery is closed until 12th Jan so no yummy bread or cakes :(  BUT The Stables is open as usual so drop in and see the girls for coffee and a light meal ]

As I stand at my counter in the corner of my new little shop, I look out the window toward the Mill - sails turning rythmically in the breeze ....customers come and go...lots of interesting people to talk to...surrounded by stunning Tasmanian Handmade Art Craft!   Heaven!

Here are some very early pics.....I need to take some more as I keep changing the locations of things to make them work better and also I am still adding stock as I get it inventoried, ticketed and displayed.

Shelves are bursting and sales are really encouraging!  I'll update all the artisans with an email shortly as I will need to order from some of you soon.  So much interest is being shown in your work and fantasic comments are being made about the diversity and sheer quality of your work!
