Apply to retail for 2010 & Venue update



Are you a retailer of beautiful things, wanting to showcase your wares at Mathilda’s Market next year? If so, please register on our retailer’s database by clicking here: MMR. Applications for 2010 will open Wednesday 2 December.


It sometimes feels like having a baby when I’m working on the venues and dates for all our Mathilda’s Markets around the country. It takes a long time, it’s tremendously exciting, and it can involve painful last minute changes and developments! But, just like holding your baby, it's ALL worth it! (Luckily, I don't have to worry about working off extra pounds, although I admit some sleepless nights are involved). You can see the 2010 Market dates on our website. We're really pleased about the new venues in which we’ll be holding our events, AND the fact there will be even MORE dates next year.
Brisbane: Mathilda’s Market will be held five times next year at the Brisbane Racing Club at Eagle Farm. Stallholders will set up shop in the Tote building and the St Leger Stand, and on its surrounding lawns. It’ll be a grand affair with music, yummy food prepared with love and entertainment for the kids. We’re staying open longer, too - till 4pm. And for the first time, we’re bringing you a small selection of stalls just for the adults, with home decor, jewellery, etc on offer. Our first Market for next year in Brisbane is on Saturday 20 February.
Sydney: We also have some fabulous news for Sydneysiders. Next year, those in the east won’t have to go far to find us, as we’re hosting two Mathilda’s Markets in the beautiful Paddington Town Hall, starting on Saturday 6 March. We’ll still be holding three Markets in Lane Cove too. Hopefully, we’re now a little closer to YOUR neck of the woods!
Canberra: If you like art deco architecture, then you’ll love our new Canberra venue! The Park Hyatt Canberra will host our next Mathilda’s Market on Sunday 28 February, with over 60 stallholders showcasing their gorgeous goodies. Ample space, a beautiful setting, delicious food and a great day shopping, and now FOUR Markets – what more could anyone ask for?
Melbourne: Mathilda’s Market once again returns to the Hawthorn and Malvern Town Halls in 2010. However, to avoid “pram jams” and to give our shoppers more elbow room, our Christmas Market in November will be held at the Caulfield Racecourse. We will pop up four times in Melbourne next year – hurrah!

And now, for our super special announcement (drum roll) ... fore the very first time, Mathilda’s is coming to Tasmania and South Australia! Happy days! (We’d love you to send this news on to your friends in Hobart and Adelaide!)
Hobart: Location, location, location! When scouting for venues, we arrived at the stunning Hobart Function and Conference Centre at One Elizabeth Street Pier, and there was no doubt in our hearts and minds we’d found our perfect, dazzling home! Come and see for yourself ... Mathilda’s will first open for business there on Saturday 27 March.
Adelaide: We are MOST impatient to open our Market doors in Adelaide! We’ve unearthed a great venue there: the Loreto College in Marryatville. There is plenty of parking, it’s a beautiful setting, and there’s lots of room to accommodate our divine retailers. Mark our launch date on your calendar: Saturday 6 March!

Here’s to discovering even more exquisitely unique goodies for our little ones, soaking up the beautiful, buzzy Mathilda’s atmosphere, and meeting new friends and catching up with old ones.

Have a fabulous day!
Anne, Founder & All-rounder

Thanks Lisa! Yes, a little bit less stress ... but only short lived I fear! :-). Cheers, Anne
