Only 4 Sleeps To Go

Only four more sleeps until my first market!!! The BrisStyle Indie Mother & Child market is on this Saturday!

At the moment I feel a mixture of excitement and nerves all bundled together. Along with the many many tasks I have yet to complete in order to be ready - many questions are running aroung in my head ..... will I have enough stock?; will anyone like my goodies enough to buy them?; will my stand be 'good enough'?; will my prices be okay?; will ...

The BrisStyle girls are a wonderful group of volunteers who make the whole market process a lot easier by providing lists, contacts, information etc. There is no way you can forget anything required for the day with the wonderful BrisStyle Checklist they put together for you. Every detail is taken care of - right down to the lunch you may want delivered on the day .... the rest is up to me (aaahhh!).

I thought I would give you a little peek at some of the goodies I will have up for offer on the day.

Garlands ....

Party pegs ...

Some tags and magnets ....

More tags (of coarse) ....

My cards .....

There will be a lot more items for sale on the day:-
This Saturday, 9th October
9am - 2pm
St Augustine's Church

If you are in Brisbane on that day, please come along and say hi - I'd love to meet you all. Plus, it will make my stand look busy (te he)!!

p.s. Is anyone else having trouble with blogger this morning? I am unable to move my images around so I had to load them all first and then put the text 'around' them.


  1. Your stall is going to look fabulous with all your wonderful goodies! Wish I lived closer so I could pop by :) I love the way you've displayed your tags in that little divide box and your garland and pegs look so pretty. Hope all goes well at your first market x

  2. Michelle, judging by this your stall will be an absolute cracker! And most of all I hope you have fun :)

  3. Hi Michelle, You have been busy... and all of your items look amazing. I am sure that you will do so well.

    Might pop by and say hello.

  4. Good luck Michelle! too bad i'm not in Brisbane, otherwise totally will visit the market! :)

  5. Your stuff is top-notch. You'll have a wonderful time! Would love to go ... and it'll be lots of fun and a great learning experience.

    I've only been able to upload one photo at a time ... I've read other people have had spacing problems too.

  6. Michelle I'm sure your stall will be a huge success! Like Amanda I only wish I lived closer so I could come along for a visit! Have a great day and I can't wait to hear how it all goes. xx

  7. I'll be there with bells on and of course there to help if you need a 'personal break' Although not sure how that will work with a pram etc. Can't wait.

  8. Hey Michelle, wow you had a productive weekend. I sooo hope I make it there and fingers crossed it will be sunny....I very much want one of those tags with the & on it...very cute! Those bristyle girls sound fab. Can't believe they deliver lunch, that is soooo cool. I used to do all the antique fairs and they were never that civilized. Cheers katherine

  9. Adore your stuff. I'm sure you'll do well. All the best, hope the day goes well. Terese

  10. Thank you all so much for your lovely comments. Your support and encouragement means a lot to me.
    I now realise how much work goes into preparing for a market - I think Katherine you once commented that you didn't think the BrisStyle girls got any sleep - well, along with my teething 22 month old my sleep time is somewhat less than what it used to be!
    Hope to see you all there on Saturday. Michelle xx
    p.s. a local cafe actually delivers the lunch that you pre-order, however, the BrisStyle girls make sure you have the menu in your market kit. Very cool.

  11. Michelle I'm sure everyone will love your stall and gorgeous art work. Only wished I lived in Brissy so that I could make your stall look busy...he he. Good luck ;) Kym X

  12. i want to wish you the best of luck tomorrow lovely lady! you'll be fantastic and your stock is divine. Sorry i won't be able to make it tomorrow, i'll be down on the coast celebrating my sister's birthday but have a grand time and sell lots of treats! look forward to hearing all about it. xx


Fantastic! I love it when you leave a comment.
