Market Wrap

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.

We had a few differences this time – an altered layout and new types of childrens entertainment.  We had two FREE magic shows from The Magic Castle – Gold Coast  Childrens Party Stars did an amazing job with the facepainting once again, Sarah Jane from Fig Tree Fairy Parties did balloon twisting for us and the lovely Natalie aka Alice from Strawberry Fundaes wandered around blowing bubbles and handing out goodies to all the kids.

Monica, from Music with Monica had the babies moving and grooving, Little Apple Tree were telling tales in the story time tent and as always D J Elektra from Star Parties kept the party pumping!

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.

We had lots of different products this market, it was a really nice mix.  Thank you to everyone who came and visited the market, both stallholders and customers seemed to be having a great time and the vibe was really nice.  If you would like to see photos check out the image gallery.

I look forward to doing it all again and seeing you all again at Sanctuary Cove on September 14th – we will be inside the Village this time, meandering through the cafes – its going to be lovely!

Sanctuary Cove 28 June 2014

What an awesome day for my last Mummy Tree Market!! There were so many lovely customers browsing our boutique stalls and the atmosphere was just fantastic – smiling faces everywhere!

Once again we had the gorgeous voice of Zoe Meliah to set the scene, we had an amazing Micky Mouse jumping castle from Fun4KidsAmusements, gorgeous facepainting and balloon twisting from Fig Tree Fairy Parties, and heaps of fun for the littler ones in the ball pit from All About Fun – there really was something for everyone!

We started the day with half an hour of FREE facepainting and Play Zone entry and so many kids (and some adults) got fancied up with rainbows, spiders & glitter. We finished off with half an hour of FREE balloon twisting and handed out loads of goody bags – it was so nice to give something away for free.

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.

Sanctuary Cove – 14 September

We were invited by Sanctuary Cove to move our markets inside their café precinct for this market.  Having it surrounded by lovely cafes, gardens and boats really added to the boutique atmosphere!

MTSC_Sept_093

The weather was not our friend this day.  After weeks of brilliant sunshine we woke to patchy storm clouds and blustery wind.  We always stay positive until the last possible moment at The Mummy Tree so we didn’t let the thought of rain cross our minds at all – our optimism was rewarded with not a single drop, and even some sunshine later in the day! 

MTSC_Sept_103

We did have a few showers early in the morning though when the sprinkler system came on, resulting in very muddy grass underfoot later in the day, but everyone kept smiling and no harm was done (other than to the grass!!)

MTSC_Sept_054

We had an amazing variety of beautiful products and services showcased, many for the first time, and we got such good feedback we are sure they will be back.  

MTSC_Sept_059

We are lucky enough once again to have Wendy from Wendy Maley Photography on hand to capture it all, so be sure to check out our photo gallery here.

MTSC_Sept_080

Keeping the kids happy is a high priority for us, as always Childrens Party Stars did an amazing job with the facepainting and Sarah Jane from Fig Tree Fairy Parties did balloon twisting again – my favourite is her cute little butterfly :)

MTSC_Sept_044

The lovely Monica, from Music with Monica kept the babies moving and grooving.

MTSC_Sept_024

Assist-a-Parent intended to tell stories but were kept so busy doing plastic craft painting that they never got a chance!

MTSC_Sept_065

 As always D J Elektra from Star Parties kept the party pumping!

mtsc_sept_076

Sanctuary Cove asked us to utilise their gourmet cafes instead of inviting our own food vendors, but we still managed to have a couple of our favourites along with popcorn, sno-cones and fairy floss from our loyal regulars Sweet n Salty and indulgent cupcakes and macarons from the gorgeous Heather at Crave Cupcakes.

MTSC_Sept_047

Thank you to everyone who came and visited the market.  Both stallholders and customers seemed to be having a great time and the vibe was really nice. 

MTSC_Sept_026

I look forward to doing it all again and seeing you all again back at Sanctuary Cove in the Marine Village on November 9th – this time for our Twilight Market from 2-6pm – its going to be beautiful!
