Chapter 10 - A New Market is Born
Today we had the opportunity to attend the first ever Fashion, Food & Wine Market at Thoroughbred Park today. This was actually really exciting for us as it wouldn't have existed without a little help from us.
Several months ago, the lovely team that ran the monthly Fashion Markets had to close it down due to location issues. This meant that the only fashion markets running would be the Three Sixty Fashion Markets every quarter.
As we needed a monthly market to sell and had been rejected from other markets when we applied, we went in search of a new hot spot and met Nancy from the Northside Family Markets.
Nancy was in need of more stalls to fill her location space at Thoroughbred Park. A thought dawned on us that we knew the Fashion Market Team and we knew Nancy so why not introduce them both and see if they can combine?
Nek minute...the Fashion, Food and Wine Market appeared! We had an amazing first day and the space was almost completely full with stall holders. It was so great to see our Canberra community coming together.
Thanks to all our customers who came and saw us today. We can't express how much we appreciate your support for our small retail business. Stay tuned for new market dates and we'll see you there!
Why do we sell at markets instead of a rented shopfront? Find out in our latest blog.
