After nine weeks of forced closure the Craft Corner volunteers were very excited to unpack their stock last week even though it was only in a temporary location.
“We will be here at 2/258 Clarinda Street (next to Discount Dave’s) for as long as it takes,” said President Margaret Tanner.
“It is very exciting and challenging at the same time to get everything unpacked.”
The Craft Corner was flooded in the super cell storm that hit Parkes on 2nd January when Clarinda street transformed into a raging river, and everything had to packed up the next day. “Fortunately, we lost very little,” said Margaret.
The shop opened on Monday and customers would not have been disappointed as its delightful range of local goods were back on the shelves.
The Craft Corner has become very popular not only among locals but attracts many visitors every year with its variety of locally produced items. The shop is particularly busy during the Elvis Festival, but has also become a shop of choice for children’s clothes since the closure of Target last year.
The opening hours are 9:30am to 4:30pm Monday to Friday, and 9:30am to 2pm on Saturdays. For more information contact Margaret on 6862 3240 or Rosemary on 6862 2570.
