Having a Mother's Day Special Market is a no brainer for D.J's Market. Perfect timing too, having it the day before Mothers Day. A perfect opportunity for you to get your mum a special unique hand made gift before Mother's Day from one of the many amazing stalls and stall holders at the market.
Saturday 9th May 2015 from 9am to 2pm is the date and time to be at the Oakgrove Community Centre, 89 - 101 Oakgrove Drive, Narre Warren South (Sharyn 0490 029 133). Entry is by Gold Coin Donation and this time around the first 50 mums receive a free goodie bag!
Come along to Narre Warren's first and only community market and have a great family day out as D.J's always caters to the kiddies with some amazing amusements that you don't find at every market. Great stalls, great food and fun activities for the kids is not the only thing they're all about. This market is a great supporter of the Melanoma Institute Australia.
This Mother's Day market is an apt reminder that D.J's Market is named in memory of market organiser Sharyn's mum Dawn Jackson who sadly passed away from a melanoma related cancer in October 2012. All proceeds from this market is donated to the institute in honour of the late Dawn Jackson (D.J). To find out more about melanoma, click here.
All purchases made on the day will instantly receive 10% off - May 9th only - from Scentsy lady Yolanda Lay
D.J's have started a new initiative called BUY IT! EARN IT, WIN IT. Essentially, for each $10 you spend (buy it) at the market (any stall), you will be given a raffle ticket (earn it) to go into a draw to win one of three special gifts (win it). If you spend $20 at the stall, you get 2 raffle tickets, and so on. Too easy. Raffle will be drawn around 1pm, so make sure you're there when they're calling out the winners.
The standard 'Treasure Hunt Card' that D.J's have had for ages is still running, so don't forget to get your card for $2 from the foyer for a chance to win a gift pack. Visit the 30 stallholders named on the back (10 of whom will have treasures for you to collect) and once card is completed, hand it back to Sharyn at the foyer.
PLEASE NOTE! This is an INDOOR/OUTDOOR market so make sure you give yourself 'a lot of time' to cruise all the stalls inside and outside so you don't miss out on a thing! One of the services you will find inside is from Susan the 'massage lady' who is set up with colouring books for the kiddies to amuse themselves while mum or dad enjoy a well deserved relaxing massage.
You could always entice (a nicer word than 'bribe' huh?) the kids with a pony ride later as Cruzie Pony Rides will be there to keep your promises. It'll be $5 a ride for 10 minutes or for $2 you can brush the ponies. Just don't rub em up the wrong way. There's also Mothers Day card making workshops and heaps more to keep those little angelic hands busy. Plus, the kids can look forward to the market's friendly mascot 'D.J the Lion' around 12 noon.
When your tummy starts doing the talking or you're ready for that hot cuppa on a cold morning, what better way to salve the growls than with Viking Bites. Delicious coffee, slushies, soft drinks, Danish pancakes and Danish hotdogs are his forte. I can personally vouch for the deliciousness of those pancakes. YUM! There's also going to be some traditional Turkish gozleme on offer. Tummy sorted!
