We know, we know … Sometimes at markets, it’s a lot easier to spot gorgeous stuff for little gals than boys. It can feel like you are surrounded by a thousand shades of pink! At Mathilda’s, we’re very conscious of giving you the blues (in a good way!) and staving off pink fits, because we try our darnedest to address the imbalance with lovely things for the lads as well. After all, they deserve to have simply smashing handmade things to wear, play with and be surrounded by, too! The idea for Mad About The Boy came to life when Vicki and Angela from Sydney just couldn’t find as many stylish and original clothes, shoes and accessories for their boys as seemed to be available EVERYWHERE for girls. As its name suggests, Mad About The Boy is a one-stop-online shop just for the little lads. It stocks a stack of great brands including Baobab, Cocoon, Fresh Baked, Smirk and Walnut. With summer here, your little man will stand out in the crowd at the beach with these super cool boat shorts from Cocoon.
And I fell instantly in love with this hat from Chick Pea, with its groovy retro cars design, and black and white gingham on the reverse. 100% cotton and machine washable, it offers great protection from the sun with a nice wide brim. Excellent stuff - we're very big on good sun protection here at Mathilda's Market!
Won't the boys look fab in all this wonderful summery gear. As proclaimed by that catchy ol’ tune from Footloose, let’s hear it for the boy! Can't wait to shop? You won't have to wait long ... Mad About the Boy will be at the following Mathilda's Markets: Paddington Town Hall 6 March and Lane Cove 2 May.
