GROSIA Caccioppola has started a new means for artisans to sell their wares, after being frustrated by open air markets subject to the weather.

She set up the first undercover show in September at the Cannington Exhibition Centre in and plans to hold the shows quarterly.

The second Your Art, Craft and Hobby Show will be held at the centre, on the corner of Station Street and Albany Highway, on December 2 from 10am to 4pm.

“It can be hard to sell,” she aid.

“Galleries put a margin on top, and there are different markets but are in open areas on grass and traffic is dependent on weather.”
