1. all about april :)

    Well Saturday was quite the amazing time… 

    Thank you to everyone involved.. stall holders, market goers, the staff at St Kilda RSL and all helpers. It was by far our best market to date and we are so excited for what the future has to bring us.

    Anne and I were both a little nervous prior to this one, being a new venue it was like a mini relaunch.. but we couldn’t be happier with the results. Personally, I was more hyper that evening than I get after consuming a bag of skittles and a red bull. 

    The new venue - St Kilda RSL on Acland St is very fitting for the market, as is Acland Street.. lots and lots of happy shoppers and the locals also seemed impressed with the new addition. 

    We ran a little competition on our facebook wall to win a $100 voucher to spend on Saturday, the winner being the lovely and fantastically stylish Sara Josephine Tobing. She was happier than a kid at a candy store, we’re so glad she won. Well deserved Sara!

    she wrote up a cute little blog post.. check it out here-  http://sartobsibocahbadung.blogspot.com.au/

    We had the little beauty Kristine handing out flyers, she did an amazing job and was dressed by the very talented Mariska Thynne from The Professor’s Daughter.

    We also had editorial content in Fashion Journal magazine. I was so excited about seeing it in print, I spent a day on Chapel St in and out of all sorts of  places.. could not find it anywhere.. then 2 nights later after a casual dinner, BOOOOMMM! Found lots. It was such a good moment. 

    www.fashionjournal.com.au - you can flick through the magazine online. Oh the technology these days. 

    BIG CONGRATULATIONS TO REBECCA AT WHIMSICAL DALE! She sold OUT of the delicious cupcakes on Saturday..the stall holders dream!

    The most flavoursome cupcakes ever… I’m so glad I got in quick! Bad luck to her housemate who was expecting leftover treats! 

    We obviously cannot get enough of markets… we decided to try and cure Melbourne’s Mondayitis by running a new evening market at 29th Apartment, Fizroy Street, St Kilda. We did a summer night market there in January and it was ever so fitting we wanted to make it a monthly occurance. 

    On Monday 14th May 2012.. we will be launching ‘Wonderfully Pretty’ which will run the second Monday of each month from 6pm-10pm. An evening of fabulous stalls, great variety of food & beverage options from 29th Apartments kitchen, live music and relaxing after the dreaded Monday back at work. We just want to bring more happiness to peoples lives.. we are on the right track!
