My First Mathildas

Yes, hello, it seems that I am consistent with my monthly blog post..sorry!!

Well Selkie Smith had its first stall at the beautiful St Ignatius College Riverview last Sunday.  What a well oiled machine, this market is super organised.  We had a great corner spot so we could get both our trees fully laden with Bags!  Pity our photos aren’t so fantastic..   This pic was a little overladen and had to be pruned a bit, but we had a lot of bags!


We have decided not to take the lattice panels with us anymore but Wall Art and Memo Boards can still be custom ordered and will eventually be available on our website..(more on that later..)  That left me needing another way to let people know who we are.  The lovely Christina of Billy Mac and C&C Design Management made us a fantastic pop up banner! We love it and its so much easier to take to markets! Christina had a stall as well, and it was great to catch up with her and also with Dianne from Little Fish Creations who has some beautiful mobiles and tutus, and is the wonderful admin of the Handmade Cooperative, which we are proud to be a part of!

003We had our new eftpos machine on hand, and it was worth its weight in gold, and a lot easier for us to use than we thought it would be! Our Hairclip Boards sold well as did our hair clips, which at first I was reluctant to start making but I’m determined not to waste fabric and these are a great way of not doing that. 

005 Anyway all in all a great day, and we hope to be at the next Sydney Markets in October.

Next up for us though is Poppyseed Markets at Bulli on Sunday, and I can’t wait to meet the lovely people of the Illawarra!

Then we will be focussing on trying to get our website up and running, the bones are there, check it out www.selkiesmithdesign.com.au  we just have to make it look pretty and fill it up with stock!

Last big news, I got me a Industrial Sewing machine! I hopefully should have it by next week, I’m know that it will be great for my Deluxe Porkiepies (Laptop Bags) and it gives my other machine a rest and I can do more embroidery on it.  Now I just have to figure whether I should move my studio into the playroom and move the playroom into the studio..I think Little Miss Selkie will have alot to say about that!
