Eumundi Market is the biggest art and hand craft market in Australia. There are more than six hundred stalls and all stalls are quite unique and lively.
Among them is a beautiful painting stall I want to introduce you to. I would say, if you want to buy a painting to make your room more beautiful, this shop is the best.
It sells the owner’s original hand paintings. All paintings are colorful, beautiful and fascinating.
She draws various sizes of paintings. Depending on the size, it takes approximately three hours to three weeks for her to finish each one.
She started painting about forty years ago. After she had been in some other markets, she started opening her stall in Eumundi ten years ago. She especially loves this market because it’s an artistic market. People who come here look for works of art. Also there are a lot of artist’s stalls. She likes to hold her shop in this atmosphere.
She usually starts setting up her stall two hours before the market. Under the trees, in nice weather, she really enjoys this location.
But when it’s raining, she has to take care of her drawings and protect them from the rain. This is the most difficult thing when she runs this stall.
The happiest moment is when people like her paintings and buy them. When they buy her paintings, people are so happy and look very satisfied. So she feels her paintings make people happy.
You can only get her paintings at the Eumundi Market. It’s so special. If you are interested in her paintings, please visit her facebook “Ko Heart”. On this page, you will see many of her paintings which decorate many houses.
Come to Eumundi Market and find this amazing creative shop!

Richard Goldsworthy is the owner of a music piano stall in Eumundi’s market. He has been working there for almost ten years now, always doing the same routine which starts with taking one hour to set up his stall.
What he likes the most about working here is meeting new people everyday, even if the weather can be a real problem sometimes. He creates music for Solo Piano and spends a lot of time doing it.
He likes to think that his work is tranquil, soothing, melodic and uplifting. To advertise his merchandise, the musician uses a lot of different things like flyers and postcards. But he also has a website and a few accounts on social media, where we can buy his CD at any time.
Working only in Eumundi’s market for now, he thinks that what makes a real difference here is that there are many people coming in. Despite the crowd, he admits that he has regular customers. People even cry while listening to his music, so that proves that he must be good.
