Market Trends

You couldn't have ordered a more perfect day.  This was Brisbane at its best, with a crisp, clear early morning to cheer us up as we motored to the other side of the city to set up for the BrisStyle Indie Designers Market

Apart from the usual children's clothing, I had a new line of cushions to create a little more interest.  I had a custom order for reading cushions for a children's reading nook and loved them so much I decided to make a range to sell at the market and in my Etsy shop.

After ably helping with the setup, Mr Fudge kissed me a fond farewell and I had time to walk around and greet the other BrisStylers, both old and new.  There is always a warm and friendly buzz in the air with this group - it's quite contagious.   Here are some of the stalls:

Kellie Christie shot to celebrity status this week when everyone's favourite cook Maggie Beer wore one of her beautiful creations on the TV series Master Chef.

Melanie of Kimono Reincarnate's beautiful stall was next to mine and drew crowds like bees to honey.

My other neighbour was new mother Catherine of Made by Maisie.  I lost count of the number of little girls who were dragged away crying and pleading to their parents for a Maisie doll.  I was pleased to see that many a little girl walked away clutching a Maisie doll of her own.

Miss Dish had some gorgeous brooches and hair pieces.

Sandrine of SM Boutique brought her usual French elegance to the market.

Sophie of Strat Designs has been absent for a few months and was warmly welcomed back.  Her beautiful creations are so tempting you could almost eat them.


Outside the market took on a carnival atmosphere.  Great weather, great friends, perfect day.
