Sunday Post: Collectibles

When the weather is cold everyone appreciates a beanie! Alice Springs is in the heart of Australia, surrounded by desert, very cold on winter nights, and very hot in summer. Every year hundreds flock into Alice for the Annual Beanie Festival, where works range from fine art works by indigenous desert artists through every possible woolly hat, some gorgeous and creative, some atrocious! Knitters all over the nation work through the year to bring their creations to the Alice Springs Beanie Festival in June. Are they collectible? Yes I am reassured they are, no matter what kind of beanie you are looking for you will find it there!! We were there a few years ago … here are some images 🙂 Artists, check out the Beanie Festival website to see this years winners.


the grand hall …. full of beanies!

how does this one look?


So many beanies!

Thank you Jake for your wonderful ideas … always so much fun exploring the photo library to find something suitable!
