July market wrap-up!

so if you were down at Portside last Sunday for our July market, you would have sensed that there was more than just a few people about....
Well, it's been confirmed, after our meeting with Portside this week, that 14000 people came along on the day!

they just kept coming through, all day long, it literally didn't stop and the feedback from retailers and the public has been wonderful. we have had several heart warming emails from retailers exclaiming that the July market was their best market day ever at any marketplace!
Many retailers handing out every last business card they had, and the constant question from customers was "when is your next market?"

we sensed it was going to be a big day from the beginning, with our website traffic reaching a 600% increase in traffic in comparison to last months total, in the first 7 days of the month. By the time our July 12th market day had arrived the website traffic was off the dial! Portside's website actually crashed on market day unable to bare the load of hits from the eager public in anticipation for the fabulous events for the day! Unheard of!!!

July also saw the launch of our Retailer of the Month - our very deserving recipient Helen from Ruby 2 Go Go. Helen's eye catching stall was constantly filled with customers, drawn immediately to it by her vivid red and white displays, and gorgeous product! Congratulations Helen! Helen wins herself a double pass to Dendy Cinemas at Portside.

Leasl, Kerry and I would like to thank everyone for their support over the last few months, we couldn't have done this without you!

So we will see you all on the 9th of August for our next market!
