Brisbane twinkles again!

It’s a wrap on our second Mathilda's Market in Brisbane for the year. Last Saturday, as the sun shone brightly, we joyously threw open the doors at Eagle Farm Racecourse in Ascot to throngs of happy shoppers.

We're very fond of this new venue and it seems you shoppers and stallholders are, too. It's spacious and lush, and the grounds are so beautiful. It was thoroughly pleasant perching on one of the seats under the shady trees and watching people drift past, and that's just what quite a few people did!

But that doesn't mean there weren't plenty of people inside, savouring and snapping up the many fabulous creations from our stallholders - the event was very well attended. The stalls looked so wonderfully presented and ever-so inviting - a big thanks to all our lovely stallholders for painstakingly creating such gorgeous retail spaces. And the kids seemed to approve of the face painter and jumping castle, both of which proved to be a smash hit.

To all our Brissy shoppers - a big thanks for joining us last Saturday. It was so good to see you all there! The event was really enjoyable for me to watch unfold, and I so hope you all had a great time. Our next Brisbane event is on Saturday 19 June at the same venue, from 9am to 1pm.

Now it's photo time! Here's a pictorial summary of some of the highlights of the day. (By the way, these pics were taken by Lana Bell of Little Posers Photography, our Official Event Photographer. Thank you, Lana).
