I am part of a rad group known as the "Modern Melbourne Makers",
a facebook group of supportive business women who meet up and support each other through the crazy journey that is small business.
Quite a few of us just happen to be going to Life InStyle tomorrow too, so I thought I'd do a little shout out to the ladies who have helped me prepare for my first trade fair.
Babs Body Care
Andrea (and her legendary sidekick/husband Matt) create natural and organic skincare that is not only awesome for you, but has funky packaging too. Their range includes cleanser, toner, lip balms, scrubs and a brilliant face mask.
This is their first trade fair too, so pop by and say hi.
First InStyle stand F24
Cheeky Little Fox
Anna is the proud owner of these adorable handmade top knots for your little ones. Her range also includes hair clips and ties and they are produced in a variety of materials and designs. Plus a boutique range of special occasion head wear.
Genna is your lady when it comes to every single scent of candle you could every imagine - all packaged with matching graphics.
Having been around since 2010, Gen has spent time perfecting every aspect of the business, and you will not be disappointed.
Sarah Makes These
Sarah (did you pick it?), makes these funky bracelets from a combination of cloth bound electrical cord with colour embroidery thread. The range also includes key rings and necklaces, which are all individually hand crafted and made with love.
Vee.p Bath and Body
Vanessa is the clever cookie behind Vee.p - a range of handcrafted, small batch and vegan products. The brands ethos is that things should be natural, but not boring, bland or beige - which is obvious from their beautiful branding.
Kim has changed the way I will forever thing about wheatbags by pairing the always functional item with bright and fresh designs. The range also includes matching eye pillows, and uses all natural fillings.
You, Me + Bones
With so many candle makers out there, Waan decided that her candles needed to have a big point of difference! Think brains, dolls heads, animals - most which have a little surprise on the inside.
And, of course, there is me - Issy from Seriously Milestones.
I'll be hanging out at First InStyle (stand F41) and would love to say hi to everyone.
There may even be free cookies!
