Holroyd Food and Wine Festival - Festival Girl Review

Festival Girl Rates: 5/10

I had a lovely Sunday afternoon at the Holroyd Food and Wine Festival in Pemulwuy Sydney. The sun was shining, families strolling around the river's edge with their favourite pooch and of course, Food, Wine and Craft Stalls on offer. 

This years weather was a lot better than last year - so it made the suburb really sparkle.

...and of course, some Craft stalls were on show (always my fav)

I really liked the Japenese style cards and papers from 'I Made It'  - specialising in handmade creative cards for all occasions, her work is cute and oh so adorable. 

Popcorn in a card - can you imagine

 I bet one of these will put a smile on anyones face. 

Here are some of the images from 'I Made It. Cute ol' school typewriter. Where do I get one of these?

 Handmade yet affordable, loving the Japanese cranes

Love birds and peacocks - Yay

SJA Accessories was on display - let me tell you I wanted everything! I really love chunky gold, bohemian styled jewellery. I wish there were more people like Kiri she is an Artist, Arts consultant and Trashionista who specialises in costumes and trashion - ha - love it - hence the very resourceful use of a pack of playing cards for business cards. Really cute work from Genevieve M with an interesting style of Art using vector illustrations from her own sketches. Bead Funk Designs also featured some dribble worthy jewellery pieces - you can catch her at  the new monthly market Cooks River Markets. Pinspot is an interesting organisation specialising in Art Therapy and creative coaching.

Festival Girl Highlight:
One of the Turkish Food stalls showed the audience how to make Gozleme! Yum, my favourite, encouraging the audience to come and take a look how its made by those cute Turkish grandmas. Aww.

Festival Girl Lowlights:

From my observations, it did look like there were a few less stalls than last year, especially the food stalls. I would have loved to see more food stalls from different nationalities, but felt a little like your average takeaway fair style food (apart from the one Pizza place that a stone oven to cook with - yum.
