Shopping for a little one and looking for something unique and maybe a little bit funky? A visit to Mathilda's Market could be just the answer.
Mathilda's Market specialises in baby and kids products designed by talented Australians. The market features a huge range of stallholders selling everything from clothing, homewares, toys, linen, books, artwork, and lots more. There are even stalls promising tasty treats including ice cream and cake.
Whether you're looking for a unique piece of clothing, a cute and cuddly toy, a gorgeous blanket or a gift unlike any other, you'll be spoilt for choice as you browse and chat with the stallholders.
The 2012 market season kicks off in Melbourne on Sunday 26 February from 9am-1pm at the Malvern Town Hall. With only four market dates over the year, be sure to put the dates in your diary. Note the special Christmas Market being held at the Caulfield Racecourse on Sunday 25 November 2012, where there will be over 100 stalls.
