blooming magnolia square

I took a trip to Magnolia Square a couple of weeks ago, it's a boutique market that I found had predominantly children's products with a few others such as jewellery, stationary and homewares sprinkled through. Whilst a small market, I have to say though it was a really nice experience. The atmosphere of St Kilda town hall was the perfect setting and of course I wasn't at all influenced by being able to sit and enjoy a good coffee (love Ed Dixon Food Design who happened to be catering the event) while having great options for kids - including crayons & paper to keep them busy. It was perfectly catered for the target market - Mums like me looking for unique goods that are often locally made or at least are local businesses. A highlight of the market [shown above] was a central stage & entry that featured inspiring creations all made from paper by the talented Jo Neville of paper Couture [above]

In the next couple of posts I'll feature a couple of the great retailers I discovered at Magnolia Square and next week stay tuned for the announcement of the launch of i spy kids... our new partner blog, where we will feature some of the great kids products that were there and celebrate the launch with a fab giveaway! Yay!
