retailer rendezvous

A perfect winters evening here in Brisbane last night to kick off the very first Boutique Markets Retailer Rendezvous at Byblos Bar at Portside Wharf. Above, Louise from Tabitha's Place shared a laugh with our very own Kerry from Boutique Markets.

Ellie (far left) from Red Seed Studio and friend Danielle (far right), chatted by the bar, with Kim from Udessi (middle left) and Renee Treml (middle right). With many retailers welcoming the idea of coming along to share a quite drink and a laugh with faces old and new. For many a chance to get to know familiar face away from the busy market day, where often they don't get a chance to even glance at the person in the marquee next door.

Clare from Mondo Cherry and Melissa from Taybian, lounging around in the gorgeously themed Moroccan lounge that we had all to ourselves, complete with ornate copper punched tables and luxurious drapes.

We even had a visitor from abroad, with Sue from Mondo Cherry gracing us for the evening. A night out with their mum, the clever design team of Joy, Sue and Clare from Mondo Cherry

Tenille from Heart of your Sleeve and Allison from Preta Pawte find a comfy chair.

Maggie from Mags Bags and Barry and Janne Hunt from HUNT Australia enjoy a glass of wine.

Cindy from Rocstar and Sharon from Works for your House

Sandrine from Sandrine Marsh Accessories and Cathy from Peg and Kate

Above Deb from Fabricated, alongside Leasl from Boutique Markets, Kerrie from Lemon Ink, and Sophie from STRAT Designs. A great night was had by all, with ideas flying for upcoming events and retailer get togethers. We would like to thank everyone who joined us last night, with many coming from as far away as Ipswich and the Sunshine Coast. For those who couldn't make it, we have already begun planning the next one!
