B O N D I M A R K E T S .




Torrential rain, strong gusts of wind and a very icy "Yes this is definitely winter" temperature welcomed my very first market stall at Bondi on Sunday. Despite how crazy the weather was it still didn't deter us from setting up, and to be honest I was amazed to see how many girls actually braved the weather to come down and visit (even I struggled to get out of bed once I heard the pitter patter of rain on my roof!). Against the odds we managed to keep everything dry with the tent quickly filling up with girls eager to sift through the hundreds of vintage pieces I had somehow managed to squeeze into one little van the night before. I was so nervous to see how it would go but all I can think about now is why I haven't done one sooner? Vintage furs, poncho capes and knitted cardigans literally flew out of the stall and I was so happy to finally meet their new owners in person and see each of their individual and unique sense of style. Highlight of the day? Handing out "free love" in the form of little red love heart lollipops and fresh white daises :)

A big thank you to everyone who came down to visit, and for turning what could of been a miserable day into one full of warmth, laughter and colour. It was so lovely meeting you all and it made the day in every way worthwhile, it was actually the only reason I decided to stay! This definitely was a tiring and whirlwind adventure, and I'm sure once I've recovered it will be one I will do again soon. I can tell you right now markets are not in any way easy. They might even be as exhausting as running an online store!

  2. thank you for all these wonderful photos! Due to the awful weather and a big Saturday night out, I'm afraid I didn't have the chance to stop by. Disappointed yes, but I'm secretly wishing you will hold another one soon because I literally can't get over all the amazing knits I can see here. Will you by any chance be selling any of these pieces on your online store in the near future?....
