Mathilda's Market this Sunday in Canberra - back in the swing of it . . .

Greetings all,
Well it's time to dust off my market skills, warm up my smiling muscles & pack for my first market of 2010.  As the decorator of Mathilda's Market Canberra, i put together a welcome display . . . here's a little taste of what it will look like . . .
My Betty Jo (Lino Forest) Babushka necklace will hang around my neck & i have 9 of those large blue IKEA bags filled with products!! 

Making sure baskets still have tags & are topped up with stock!!
  We have to bring the whole family so we're using the trailer.  My husband's car is in Brisbane & the children have parties during the market, not sure who is working harder tomorrow??!!
I try to take new product ranges to each market to keep things interesting, like my Euro screen printed dresses; new range of children's suitcases (will be available in various colours, sold as singles or sets of 4); something for boys & those who love to bake!! 
These images went to the Canberra Times for a promotion too!!
Of course lots of pink products as i can't help myself after lots of girls!!
Posie is a founder stall holder at Mathilda's Canberra!! 
Mathilda's Market Canberra in it's new home - the Hyatt Hotel on Commonwealth Avenue Yarralumla (next to Albert Hall) with free parking, free entry, EFTPOS & almost 50 beautiful stalls packed with lovely things for babies & children.  Always a gorgeous shopping experience, 9a.m. to 1p.m. Sunday 28th February.  Love Posie
