Last minute gifting ideas at twilight markets

LEFT your Christmas shopping too late?

No worries, the Ballandean Twilight Markets are on again on December 22, just in time to pick up any last minute presents.

This month five new stalls will join the regulars, including a mango seller, stonefruit sellers, Nutjob Confectionery and a children's Christmas clothing stall.

Ballandean Hall president Jason Nash said after a great November market, he was looking forward to another great turnout.

"We will have music playing, the bar will be open and food will be for sale,” Mr Nash said.

Popular cake maker Helen Butler will be selling special Christmas cakes and puddings, while market regular Bob Huard will have plenty of unique wood turning items.

Mr Nash reminded residents any first time sellers would get a free stall at the markets.

He is also offering free stalls for fourth time sellers.

He said there was still time for people to bag a place at the December markets.

"We always want more stall holders,” he said. "We could do with another 10 or 12 stalls outside.”

The cancer support group will be at the market selling raffle tickets.

"I think it'll be a great place (for last minute gifts),” Mr Nash said. "There are plenty of little knick knacks for sale.”
