Another Successful Saturday

This past Saturday was the third Frock Affair market in Brisbane. As much as I love what I do, there is a part of me that questions my sanity when I'm getting out of bed at 4.30am on a very dark and chilly Saturday morning. But then arriving at our venue, getting stuck in with the set up (and induging in a skinny cap or two) the thought of my big warm bed is all but forgotten.

Saturday's event was a great success with 14 stallholders and over 200 keen shoppers through the door. We even had a handful of patient husbands/boyfriends and partners come in and wait while the girls shopped. I think they were all relieved to find our 'Men's waiting area' decked out with sports magazines, newspapers and other blokey reading material to entertain them.

Two of our stallholders on Saturday had actually met each other at our May market (one was a buyer, one a stallholder), got to talking and then decided to share a stall! I was so excited to hear that. A Frock Affair - not just creating happy bargain-hunters, but business partners and friends too.

Our next market is on Saturday 11th September and so with lots of 'day job' events, some interstate, intrastate and overseas travel, two hens nights, a kitchen tea, a baby shower and three weddings (including Kim's) to get through before our next Frock Affair, it's going to be a hectic few weeks.

Applications are open for stallholders, so make sure you visit for more information.

I'll be back tomorrow to put up some photos from this past Saturday.

Until then, stay warm!

To market we go

Wow! Doesn't time fly! So much has been happening since our last market in May and with Kim's wedding only weeks away, we have decided to bring forward our next market to July 24th. Sounded like a great plan in theory, then I realised how soon the 24th was! Having not given up our 'day jobs' we have been busily working on A Frock Affair in our down time. So what's in store for us in the coming weeks? Well we're building a new website, planning a new fashion shoot, venutring into some design work and walking the streets letterbox dropping! You could hardly call it 'down time'!

Here are a few photos from the last market and our fabulous stall holders busily setting up there stand (and getting in a few sneaky sales before opening).
