Done and Dusted...Magnolia Square

What just happened last week?

It was the whirlwind that is
Magnolia Square, Malvern.

We set up our pop-up shop on Wednesday arvo.
It rained.
Oh dear we thought.

But Thursday morning came along.
It was freezing, but there was sun...yes...sun!
The clock ticked over 9.45am and we were just putting the icing on the cakes.
(Ha! Pun definitely intended!)
There was big bustling crowd waiting at the doors aleady.
Those prams were almost revving their engines as 
Metka got ready to open the Town Hall doors!
Mmmm..this is a good sign.

For the next 3 days it was crazy!
It was non stop customers.
It was fantastic!

What we learned from Magnolia Square
Probably 85% of our customers had already heard about our cupcake wrappers.
Nearly everyone had seen them in Donna Hay Kids magazine or Frankie.
We had a different best seller on each day.
Overall our best seller was our Pink Paris cupcake wrapper.
We will probably look at adding vintage cupcake toppers to our range.
You need to wear comfy shoes when you are standing all day.
We will be talking about "reusable cupcake wrappers" in our sleep for months!
We found a sneaky secret car park and didnt get a ticket..snigger!
Avoid taking a pram to Magnolia Square.  A baby carrier is much better.
We drank a lot of coffee.
Ed Dixon' cupcakes & sausage rolls are delicious.
We ate too many lollies - bananas, raspberries and fruit sticks


There are SO many talented & creative people there who had a stall
they were mainly women doing an amazing job running their business.
We are very proud to be in such esteemed company.

Thank You to all our supporters who came along.
We met loads of lovely people.
Even if people didnt buy anything, they still had sweet things to say about our cupcake wrappers.
It was really quite exciting!
And so exhausting!

Hope to see you next time.

Your stand looks so lovely in the pics. Can't wait to see what the vintage toppers look like.
