The brainchild of Loxton women
Jocelyn Vowles and Ilze Braddock, the
market was launched in April this year
and drew overwhelming support from
local stallholders and shoppers.
Mrs Vowles said their aim was to
create something that was previously
"missing" in the Riverland -- a
clothing/accessories centric event.
This has been delivered and
another large crowd is expected to
attend this Sunday's spring event,
to be held at the Loxton Community
"Stall sites have been booked
for over a month in advance and
of the 33 stallholders we have, 20
are new from the last market," Mrs
Vowles said. "There will be a range
of women's, children's and men's
clothing and accessories that are
vintage, handmade or pre-owned.
"There are also retail stores and
home-based businesses coming along
to sell their discounted and sale stock,
so there will be a wide variety on offer
for all ages."
Meanwhile, in the foyer and
outdoor area, there are eight
food options to choose from with
something for the sweet tooth,
savoury treats and freshly made
Mrs Vowles said this made the
market "more of an experience,
rather than somewhere just to buy
or sell" -- a format well received by
the hundreds of attendees at April's
market, who took the opportunity to
The addition of face painting for
this weekend's event, combined with
the theatre's location also means the
market is "family friendly", according
to Mrs Vowles.
"The outdoor eating area looks out
onto the Loxton High School oval, so
parents can sit back and enjoy a coffee
and something to eat, while the kids
have a play," she said.
"It's all part of our aim to make the
market as inviting and accommodating
The Revolving Wardrobe will be
held in the Loxton Community Theatre
this Sunday from 10am until 4pm.
Why not drop by, browse the 30-
plus stalls, grab a coffee and bite to
eat, and soak up the atmosphere?
Much more than your average market

The Loxton District Chamber of
Commerce was recognised for its
participation in the 2014 UniSA
Australian HPV Super Series at the
South Australian Mainstreet Awards
The Chamber was commended by judg-
es for the events with expenses between

Chamber business and events manager

rapt" with the award.
"We were really surprised," she said. "We

"It's a real testament to the culture of col-
laboration that we have in Loxton; working
together to achieve great results that benefit
our community through raising Loxton's
profile and attracting visitors to our town."
The Campbelltown City Council took
out the category for events with expenses
between $20,000 and $50,000 for their
Moonlight Markets, which have injected a
potential $1 million into the local economy.
"When we saw the winners, we thought,
'we are playing with the big boys here'," Ms
Ms Altschwager said the event was a suc-
cess because of the many people involved.
"Shane Semmler gave up a huge amount
of his own personal time," she said.
"The South Australian Mainstreet Awards
were an ideal opportunity to showcase the
successful and innovative Pedal Prix event.
"I'm really proud that we were acknowl-
edged because a lot of people worked really
hard on the project."
Local Government Association President
mayor David O'Loughlin said the awards
recognised council's intrinsic position in
creating exceptional mainstreet communi-
"These awards are a great recognition of
the work done by councils and key stake-
holders to keep mainstreets vibrant and
welcoming to local residents, tourists and
the wider community," he said.
