Mathilda's Market in Sydney

In just two weeks time, Mathilda’s Market will be back in the Harbour City, at Paddington Town Hall on Saturday 30 October, to tempt Sydneysiders with some seriously covetable shopping for babies and kids.

Checking out the fantastic line up of stallholders (with exciting new additions), I’m feeling some retail therapy cravings coming on, and considering booking my plane ticket up to Sydney pronto!

It’s definitely time to get down to some serious shopping and get organized for Christmas, so here’s a taster of what’s on offer….

First up I wanted to tell you about Lillie Bee, a boutique clothing and organic t-shirt range which is a one-stop shop for everything you could need for your little one’s summer wardrobe.

They have divine onesies for bubs, cute tees, pants, skirts and shorts for girls and boys and accessories including crochet hair clips and hair-bands. There is a lot to love from the range but check these out for starters….

On the clothes theme, Pipstars, sell appliquéd and hand screen printed clothes which are produced in limited runs so your toddler or bub will be a stylish stand out this summer. Visit the stall to stock up for the warmer months with tees, singlets, sundresses and shirts, all featuring unique designs, which your little angel will love wearing.

Mi hombresito (or little man in Spanish), is one of the exciting new additions to the Mathilda’s Market fold. Hailing from Byron Bay, these gorgeous clothes and accessories are just for boys so that you can dress the little man in your life with style. Proof that it’s not just the girls who can have fun with clothes! The beautiful range has a slight 70s vive and has some very cool stuff for boys with shirts, suede waistcoats, hoodies and cargo shorts. Definitely not one to be missed!

For something slightly different, Laikonik, create unique, handmade, keepsake albums called Once-A-Year Books with original designs inspired by Polish folk art. They are a great way to chronicle your child’s first years in a beautiful book and are a fabulous gift idea for Christmas. Great for the child (or parent) that has everything!

The books are handmade in Australia using eco friendly materials and high quality acid free pages. Each book also comes with a little Chatter Book, a small notebook for keeping a record of your child’s first words and funny sayings. Laikonik also sell a range of stylish screen printed recycled wrapping paper and gift cards – so it’s a perfect chance to stock up your stationary drawer.

For more Christmas ideas, Oliver’s Twisty Taleshas a gorgeous range of handmade and australian made dolls, toys, quilts, and dressing up items. Their new range includes the fabulous ‘Topsy Turvey’ reversible dolls that flip upside down to reveal classic fairytale characters (including Snow White, Rapunzel and Cinderella) in contrasting outfits, the perfect gift for a little girl. They also sell traditional quilts and blankets for babies and toddlers, and for dress ups and parties, ‘Pirouette Pettiskirts’, that little misses will love.

Last but not least, I had to mention one of our stallholders from inter-state Little Snoring, who are travelling from Tasmania to be with us in Sydney. Little Snoring make some truly unique toys, accessories and homewares with some of their new items including snuggly hand-stitched toys using natural fibres, children’s necklaces  (check out the gumball and lady bird designs below), and cushions.

Again there are some great ideas for pressies, choose from the Pocket Pandas or French Poodles toys, log cabin patchwork pillows and pretty pendants and necklaces for little girls. Very tempting stuff…
