Market Wrap – Saturday April 14 Twilight Market

Wow, what a day!

From a wet & windy morning, to a beautiful warm, friendly and festive afternoon emerged our April 14 Twilight Market at Sanctuary Cove!

One minute we were not sure if there was even going to be a market due to the weather, then the next minute there were customers sitting back in our fabulous new “lounge” watching children dance and giggle with such enthusiasm to the groovy beats of DJ Elektra and Music with Monica.

Our twilight market had a warm and friendly vibe with the Elite Dance Academy, jumping castle, Mr Toot Entertainment & the stilt walkers pulling in a big crowd of parents, friends & visitors!

The main focus of the market was of course the amazing boutique stallholders, who were selling a diverse range of children’s’ clothing, home wares, maternity wears, bedding & lots lots more which all catered for a shoppers delight…

Best Market Find:

Bungalow 12

   Best Market Buy:

Little Honeypie

We loved to see our new “lounge” put to good use, friends & families taking in the funky tunes of Ram Dharam whilst sipping a coffee, snow-cone or enjoying an afternoon snack from our delicious gourmet food stalls.

A huge thanks to all our wonderful stallholders, entertainers & gourmet food businesses for supplying such boutique products & services for all to enjoy :-)

Jenna & I are very motivated to grow our markets bigger & better as we learn from each and every market… With the hope of future expansion on the Gold Coast we are working towards making “The Mummy Tree Markets” a known name on the GC and this is only possible with the on-going support from our talented small businesses that trade with us in 2012!

Interest is growing daily for our June 9 market with applications opening online on April 30.

We are happy to announce an exciting competition coming up which will give 7 lucky stallholders the chance of great promotion and exposure for their business to the general GC public! Stay tuned to our facebook page for details.

Until next time Mandy & Jenna

11th February Market Day

What a fabulous start to 2012!

Amazing boutique stalls & a beautiful hot Queensland afternoon set the mood at our first Sanctuary Cove Twilight Market for 2012…

We were both excited and nervous about our first Mummy Tree Markets as Market Partners.  It was a huge job organizing a market like this but we were up for the challenge.

The market applications starting rolling in early and we had no problems filling the market but more than anything we were both really pleased at the quality and diversity of the boutique stalls on offer, showcasing such wonderful Best & Beautiful buys which made for a shopper’s delight!

After an early morning marking out stall locations and doing all the last minuter preparations we were amazed at how quickly the market took shape once the stallholders arrived and the market proved to be a great place to spend a Saturday afternoon and evening. Belly laugh clowns, arts & crafts, interactive music for the little ones, gourmet food & the “must have” sno-cones  made an enjoyable day for all.

Big thanks to all our wonderful entertainers and also Jade from Forever After Photography (our market photographer) for all their hard work and thank-you to all our great stallholders and customers.

We are also very excited to announce “Curves” gym is now on board as a market sponsor too for 2012!  Spanning the coast from north to south targeting thousands of mums and spreading the word about our amazing chic, inspired, unique markets!

We will both be working super hard on this market to make it the best ‘Family Friendly Boutique’ market experience on the Gold Coast and look forward to supporting and growing all the businesses who trade with us in 2012.

Don’t forget we will be back at Sanctuary Cove on the 14th April 2pm – 6pm – we look forward to seeing you all again.

With a relaxed, family friendly atmosphere, gourmet food, new & exciting  children’s entertainment, live music and of course, local businesses showcasing their amazing talents, products & services, it will be the place to be!

Applications open online 1st March 2012.

Spread the word and see you there!

 

Cheers

Sanctuary Cove March 1st Market Wrap

What an awesome way to kick off 2014!!  Sanctuary Cove once again put on a lovely day for us on Saturday for our first market of the year.

We had the ethereal voice of Zoe Meliah to set the scene, along with a jumping castle from All About Fun Jumping Castles, gorgeous facepainting and balloon twisting from Fig Tree Fairy Parties and moves and grooves for babies from Music with Monica as well as a big hands on craft zone from Artsorted Works – there really was something for everyone!

Sanctuary Cove asked us to utilise their gourmet cafes instead of inviting our own food vendors, but we still managed to invite our all time favourites along – Sweet n Salty with their scrummy gourmet popcorn, sno cones & fairy floss.

My apologies for the lack of photos in this post, I’m having trouble with the computer.  We had the gorgeous Melanie from Little Orange Photography snapping away all day taking shots of our stallholders and lovely customers, so be sure to check out our photo gallery here.

Thank you to everyone who came and visited the market, both stallholders and customers had a great time and the vibe was really nice. 

I look forward to doing it all again next month back at Sanctuary Cove on April 5th from 9am-1pm.

We are also kicking off an ALL NEW MONTHLY MARKET at Westfield Helensvale – be sure to set aside the second Sunday of each month to visit us, starting Sunday march 9th, and then again Sunday April 13th – see you there!

Market Wrap Robina August 3rd

Finally, a perfect day for a market!  The weather was just stunning and we thought people would hit the beach rather than the markets after such an extended period of bad weather, but no!  Hundreds of lovely families came to check out all the amazing products and services on display at Robina State School last weekend.

This was our FIRST BIRTHDAY market at this venue!  We had an amazing variety of beautiful products and services showcased, and we are lucky enough once again to have Wendy from Wendy Maley Photography on hand to capture it all.

It just wouldn’t be a Mummy Tree Market without yummy gourmet food options, and of course we didn’t disappoint with everything from Thai to cupcakes, bread to waffles, corkscrew potatoes and popcorn to burgers.  many thanks to Coffee Obsession for coming in at the last minute when our regular coffee crew couldn’t attend.
