Further to my earlier email, I attended - well actually shared a stall, at a Size 16 plus Market yesterday, held at the Seaford Life Saving Club Rooms by Janine Mison of Real Women Australia Pty Ltd.
The weather which started out with grey skies took a bad turn into lashing rain and then hail but that certainly didn't dampen the spirits of the ladies who had taken up stalls to display their garments and accessories. The temperatures were low, but the attitude of everyone who attended was high.
This was an occasion where literally thousands of garments (many of them new with their original swing tags) were presented in the always hard to find range of size 16 plus. Many garments were in the higher range from 24 through to 30, and buyers took advantage of the many specials.
Most of the garments were priced within the $5, $10, $20 range, with some spectacular garments a little higher in price. There was even an exquisite Deb frock on sale.
Casual garments, dress-up outfits, leather coats, beautiful lingerie, shoes, boots, handbags, hats and costume jewellery were all featured.
It is hoped that this will become regular event, held around Melbourne in different areas, especially during the warmer months. I would recommend that when you see one of these special days advertised, that you take the opportunity of adding to your wardrobe for a very reasonable cost, and to have a great time choosing special garments. You'll meet some fantastic women as well.
Even consider booking a stall yourself to sell some of your pre-loved clothing - and to make room for more purchases! Who needs an excuse to buy something beautiful?
