About Our Markets

We provide a chic, inspired and unique marketplace to showcase a diverse range of quality merchandise as part of a relaxed and supportive community. There are opportunities to network with other businesses and share knowledge with likeminded colleagues who can truly relate to the benefits of running a small or home based business.
We compliment our marketplace with our dedicated online presence through facebook and other social media outlets as well as valuable real life promotion. Our aim is to increase exposure for your business which we believe will flow on through with increased sales and therefore business growth – just ask around as we have seen many businesses grow and thrive since starting at our markets.

‘The Mummy Tree Markets’ aim is to offer quality unique merchandise at affordable prices and offer stallholders a desirable venue to showcase their wares without having a top price attached.

Selection Process

Our markets do not showcase mass produced, second hand or products which are easily found in shops. Products/services must be of a high quality and there has to be a uniqueness to what is showcased, we prefer handmade but are not limited to this and we will also look at some vintage lines and anything which has a point of difference which we believe will enhance our Market.
If you are unsure if your range meets out criteria, please CONTACT US to discuss.
We reserve the right not to accept retailers who do not meet our criteria or who we feel are not suitable for the demographic we are catering for.

Also it is essential your products meet Government Standards before applying to attend our markets as we take no responsibility in regards to your compliance.

Business products and services must cater for conception, pregnancy, babies, children, teens and/or families (Mums & Dads) to be considered. We will also have stall holder opportunities for Food Retailers at our Markets (Morningside and Sanctuary Cove ONLY) as we feel these businesses will compliment our overall market experience.

We try and select retailers to ensure we have as much variety as is possible. We would like each of our retailers to have a point-of-difference to what is available elsewhere. We will look for a depth of product/service range, style, uniqueness, quality and realistic pricing when selecting retailers. If your application is unsuccessful and you feel you do meet our guidelines please do not take it personally and please do not be put off applying again. It may be that we have other businesses already booked in which offer a very similar product. It is in the interest of all our retailers that we do not have too many of the same type of stalls at our Markets, to both limit competition and to also offer enough variety, therefore providing a positive market experience for everyone including our customers. We have kept our stall holder prices as low as is possible however we still wish to ensure the standard of the market remains high and that we can also promote our markets effectively.

As of the 4th January 2016 ALL our applications for all our Markets will be open online. You can choose to apply for one or multiple markets (discounts apply – 4 markets booked and paid for in one transaction – $30 (Half Stalls = $15) OR all our 2016 markets booked and paid for in one transaction before 1st Feb – $150 – Full Stalls Only) , payment must be made at the time of applying for your application to be considered. If unsuccessful you will be fully refunded within 7-14 days of applying or within 3 days of being advised.

Whilst we have a strict selection criteria it will still be a case of first in first approved in 2016 – this means if you apply and pay first and you meet our criteria and your products are the same as (4) other businesses who applied after you – you will be approved over the other applicants, depending of course on the quota allowed for that type of product for that market.

Market Day

Please treat all other stallholders and visitors with the same respect we expect them to treat you with. Please note : We have a strict No Smoking Policy for stallholders and visitors within all the Market areas. and lastly please don’t forget to ensure your market stall clearly shows your name in an attractive way.

Thank-you

Information about our Sanctuary Cove Market

Our markets will be held within the Sanctuary Cove precinct, close to the main shopping street and in an area exclusive for our use on market day. This is a Boutique Family Style market with all stalls being BYO Marquee and full set-up. You can only trade with us if you have a 3m x 3m quality pop-up marquee (oz-trail or equivalent) as it is important that we maintain a cohesive look to ensure our market stalls fit with our boutique feel.

All your tables require a full length cover so any items stored underneath are not visible at all. It is imperative that your stall is presented attractively to highlight your products and our market as this will encourage buyers to pay more attention to your stall and increase your sales – aim for a full but not overcrowded stall. Add a personal touch and try for stylish and welcoming setup. This is very important for the overall quality feel of our Market so you need to pay great attention to this to ensure your stall fits well within our Market.

Please make sure all rubbish from your stall area is disposed of before you leave or is taken with you. We wish to keep cleaning costs to a minimum therefore keeping stall prices down.

Our Gold Coast Sanctuary Cove Markets will be daytime markets 6 times per year in 2016. Please note this is an outdoor market so please ensure all BYO marquees and products are secured by the stallholder in the case of bad weather and this is the stallholders full responsibility.

Please make sure all rubbish from your stall area is disposed of before you leave or is taken with you. We wish to keep cleaning costs to a minimum therefore keeping stall prices down.

Market Promotion

Most of you will know we promote all our markets very heavily to a targeted audience. We spend considerable time and money on this and employ people to help us – we invest in many thousands of flyers for distribution in to daycares and child friendly businesses as well as other paid for advertising throughout the year – if you are keen to be involved we also have stallholder contributed advertising and you can contact us to discuss further or choose this option when you apply.

We are well known for our effective marketing and promotion of our events to our targeted audience.

Cancellation

If you book and pay for a market and find you will no longer be able to attend, please notify us immediately.
Please note NO REFUNDS will be offered in 2016 for any stalls booked however if a stallholder applies and pays and then realizes that they cannot attend they will have (2) options –
A) THEY CAN can find another suitable business to take their place and once they have applied and paid and have been approved by our Market Coordinator, the original stallholder can be refunded in full less a $20 handling fee.
B) THEY CAN can transfer to another market at that location if the market they wish to transfer to is not already FULL, this can ONLY be done no closer than (4) weeks prior to the market – no transfers will be offered under (4) weeks prior to the market – transfers are only valid for 12 months past date of original booking.

If neither of these options suit you will not be able to request a refund unfortunately. This ruling will be strictly adhered to and non-negotiable to be fair to all our stallholders.

PLEASE NOTE: We do not refund in the case of bad weather as we have already invested time and money into promoting the markets and 95% of all our market expenses have been incurred prior to the actual market as we are not refunded by venues etc., in the case of bad weather. Our Markets are only on 5-6 times a year at each location so they are difficult to re-schedule and promote without it costing a lot more money to do so and in most cases this is impossible as everything is planned for and booked in so far in advance. If it is too wet or too windy for you, you may choose to pack up prior to the market ending as long as it does not cause injury to others, we unfortunately cannot control the weather and if you feel the weather may not be ideal on market day please make the necessary adjustments to your stall to cater for this if attending one of our outdoor markets, so as not to be a health and safety issue.

Attending our Markets as a Stallholder

We believe the Mummy Tree Markets has a positive vibe and is a place that both stallholders and families look forward to attending- it is a truly chic, inspired and unique marketplace. We also believe it is a place where you can get great exposure for your business as well as providing an opportunity to socialize and talk to others about your products and services which we feel is invaluable.

We believe we offer great value for money as we are always looking at new promotional tools and advertising methods for our Markets (and your business) and strategies for further growth, in fact we are always working hard on making our markets the best around.

Our Markets are a great cost effective advertising avenue for any small business which meets our criteria and we look forward to welcoming you and your business to our markets.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions and we hope to see your Market Application for our Markets very soon.
