Revolver Designer Market 11-03-10

Last night I attended my first Revolver Designer Market. It's a bit of a bizarre thing, I've never been to a pub or bar before that has market stalls, but I liked what I saw and was more than happy to be a part of it! Thank you to everyone that popped down to see me and my stall, and thanks to all who purchased from me on the night! An extra big thank you to my husband Ty who came and sat with me (no doubt bored!) the whole night :) I was a bit nervous about the whole thing, having not done any markets before, but it worked out well and I have another one in 2 weeks (so if you missed this one, come to the next!).  Thanks also to Gaby and her sister from hopeless who were on the stall next to me and managed to answer my silly questions, being a newbie and all!

Whilst me and Ty gobbled down our yummy thai food from Colonel Tan's on our laps, without, may I say - a single drop down my top (a mean feat considering I'm usually such a clumsy grub!) I managed to sell out of wooden bunny brooches, so I will have to get busy to make some more for the next market. Also popular were rose rings and rose necklaces. Not a huge amount of sales, but the other stall holders assured me it was an unusually quiet night, and with markets, unfortuantely you have to take the good with the bad. So based on that theory alone, the next market is gonna be tops & I'm gonna make a fortune. Hehe. We'll see.

The other stalls incuded some wicked jewellery, awesome funky cards from able and game, cool eco lighting shades from electric firefly, and darling handmade hair accessories from hopelessly devoted. I must also thank Amelia from milkwood design for giving me the goss on the market before hand, so I was a little more aware of what to expect! She does awesome resin jewellery I always drool over.

SO.. If you're going to be around, make sure you come down Thursday 29th March, from 6-10pm. Bring a group of friends and make a night of it. It's a really great atmosphere, with groovy beats, cheap yummy thai food & quality beer (just $10 for jugs if that tempts you further!) or if you're more into cocktails, extremely 80's cocktails are a also hit :) PLUS whilst schmoozing and drinking, you can view a selection of handmade designer stalls, including mine! Now tell me, whats stopping you! :)

  1. Your stall is super cute, glad you had a good time :)

  2. Looks good - and sales too -yay!
    How much were your white boxes and where from if you don't mind sharing.. I need some, but can't be bothered making / looking for them : )

  3. Oh I got them AGES ago (like 5+ years) from a cheap little imports variety store. I can't even remember where, I think they were about $20 for 4. So I snapped them up :) I usually use them in my house but needed something to raise my display so they came in handy last minute. Unfortunately I've never seen them again, but hopefully you can still get something like it :P I know you can get bigger versions (like stores use) more readily in some decor shops. Good Luck!
