BrisStyle Indie Mother & Child Market Wrap Up


Brisbane delivered the most perfect Autumn day for the first BrisStyle Indie Mother & Child Market on Saturday.



The BrisStylers turned up fully stocked with gorgeous products to whet the appetites of all the Mums and kids who came along for the fun!



It wasn't simply a shopping day for Mum, the kids got in on the action too with some very cute and cool face painting. Hurrah!



Creativity isn't only reserved for our marketeers. The colouring in competition, designed by our very talented artist Sam of Jetta's Nest, got the creative juices flowing for the kids (and some adults)!



The fabulous fairy floss duo sporting their pretty in pink wigs caused a stir with the fairy floss connoisseurs. Whispers of "melt in your mouth" and "best fairy floss ever" were heard around the streets of Hamilton.



And did we mention the shopping? There were loads of gorgeous goodies to be found!



It's hard to believe but even more creative action was happening inside some of our marketeers stalls. Michelina from Bella Mea set up her painting easel and welcomed all the little artists in sight to create gorgeous abstract pieces.



Ellie from Red Seed Studio gave the budding fashionistas an opportunity to create uber cool accessories with her ever-popular badge-making machine.



And the belle of the ball was our very own BrisStyle Faerie armed with bubbles and purple balloons, she really was the most popular girl of the day!



Big thanks to MixTape for supporting this fabulous event and also to Darren from Kish Photography for the beautiful shots.

Looks like a magical day at the mother child market. And looks like Bec may have found a second job - she makes a beautiful faery doesn't she? I'm very sorry I missed this one, hopefully I won't have to be in so many places at the one time when the next one's on :)
