WOW what a day!! what a fantastic day!!
6 weeks ago I received a much awaited email from the fabulous team behind Mathilda’s Markets letting me know that I was one of the lucky people to be holding a stall at the upcoming Sydney market day in Moore Park. Like the lead up to Christmas it was a very busy yet slow wait, then all over much too quickly! The day just flew by. So a very early start had us up before the sun to pack and head to Moore Park where we set up our stall with over a hundred other stall holders and eagerly awaited the crowds, and boy were there crowds, and prams.. soooo many prams! :)
My friend and fellow photographer Rosalie was so kind to also get up at a silly hour and come help me set up and also help me throughout the day. She was just fabulous, I couldn’t have done it without her! Thank you Rose xx
I spent the past 6 weeks organising my stall and I was so so thrilled with how it all worked out. All my hard work and the hard work of my wonderful father (painting lattice and making the stand to hold it, and then late night packing macaroons with me) was well worth it. My mum also did her bit to help out and came to visit me on the stand, my parents support is priceless to me.
My stall was parked between two wonderful businesses owned by two lovely women. To me right was Kate from Please Eloise, selling gorgeous hair clips, headbands and the like. To my left was Lilly from Lilly Lolly Love, showing off all her handmade goodness, toy bins, bibs, and super cute smock bibs. They too had to spend the day eying off my macaroons though they were given a sweet treat (or 10) from me at the end for all their hard work :)
My first market has been deemed a success and I cannot wait for the next!
A huge thank you to all the wonderful customers who made the markets a huge success. It was great to meet so many of you, to see so many glowing mothers-to-be and gorgeous children, I look forward to meeting with many of you again to help you document your growing families.
