Recent Markets

Well it's just been a little crazy here lately, managing our 'other' jobs (both in the health sector), looking after a toddler, managing, designing and manufacturing Little Chillies, Ugh..... superwomen, we are not!

Here's a picture of me making shoes, in what was once our formal dining area.......

But some time aside, to catch up on the Blog......

Well, Mathilda's market at Malvern Town Hall in May was a Blast! We LOVE being busy! Our new blue reversible kimono was a hit and almost sold out. We are starting to receive a lot of orders for size 4 and 5, so we be looking closely into extending our sizing in future.
Magnolia square in Sydney during the first week of June was great fun! It poored with rain on the first day, but that didn't seem to keep the people away :-). Matty (husband) helped out for this market and we met some lovely people and had a great few days away. We were very happy to win the visual merchandising award. Thank-you fellow retailers for voting for us! We are booked into Magnolia Square during October 2010 and then again in Sydney during November.

Our last market for a month or so was in mid June, Sugar and Spice Children's Market in Woodend. It was their launch, and we were very impressed at the numbers that came through for their first Market. Good work Ali! We hope to be back at the next one on September 12th. This market is a must. It's the perfect day out in Woodend. If you haven't been to Woodend before think: tranquil, spa country, divine cafe's, coffee, and stylish shops! It's a great place to visit :-)


We are 'hoping' to be at:

Mathilda's Market at Hawthorn Town Hall, August 22nd.

Sugar & Spice Children's Market in Woodend, September 12th.

We will be at:

Magnolia Square at Malvern Town Hall, Melbourne on October, 21st, 22nd, & 23rd.

Magnolia Square
at Randwick Racecourse in Sydney, Novemebr 12th, 13th & 14th

See you soon at another market,
Jo & Liz.


  1. I love seeing someone else's dining table (even though i have a bigger cutting table) being used for sewing...I can say to hubby "see it's not just me"
    Loving your stalls, they look lovely.

  2. It's not just you, I promise! This table has been through my husbands family for a couple of generations, and in each generation it has been used by the mother for sewing or cutting! I'm sure the table holds some of the magic of Little Chillies......
