Modish Market debut.....

It's taken me a while to get around to this post, but I wanted to tell you about the very first ever Modish Creators Market that we were involved in last Saturday at the Malvern Town Hall. This new market has been in the planning stages for such a long time (just ask Kylie and Kelly), so it was really exciting for the event to actually happen.
The general idea for the creation of the event was to create a regular market in the eastern suburbs that was a quality handmade lifestyle market. Sounded perfect to us, so Mookah was on board in a flash! The weather was beautiful, car parking and access was a dream, and the event appeared extremely well organised on arrival so we were off to a good start for the day.
There was no real rush of patrons through the door at 9am, but rather a steady stream. Within half an hour of the event beginning we sold our brand new red elephant floor cushion that was on it's debut - woohoo! Guess who bought it? Chrissie Swan from The Circle, but I personally know her from the 'Dicko, Dave and Chrissy' radio show. She was a scream....

The quality of the stallholders at Modish Market was extremely high. It was like the who's who of some of Melbournes top markets and was great fun to meet some new stallholders and peruse their goodies. I was going to say that I restrained myself and didnt buy a thing, but I did make a small purchase......a Mother's Day card.

Look at these stunning cupcakes. Is it just me or does it seem like cupcakes are taking over the world at the moment? All stallholders received a FREE coffee and cupcake on the day, which was a bonus, except that I had to share mine with you know who.

I didn't get to take many photos of the event, but this display of lovely handmade bags is by Leanne from Fraulein Jageur, who was a bit shy on the day and didn't want her photo taken as she claimed to be having a bad hair day.

A quick snap up the aisle at the start of the market.....the Malvern Town Hall is such a lovely venue.

Overall wrap up from me. A great concept, fantastic venue with good car parking, excellent quality product, well organised and lots of potential, we just need to get the word out there. Well done to Kelly and Kylie on their first market.
