The Metre Markets feature a mix of fashion, music, food, art and good vibes. They are located at the Morningside School of Arts on the corner of Wynnum Road and Ison Street. Entry is free and free parking can be found in the surrounding streets.
The markets were started by Sarah Malengret and Chloe Maguire who wanted to encourage people to clear out their wardrobes and sell their pre-loved designer and vintage clothes. They had tried and tested different ways of selling their unwanted clothes with all the hassle that comes with online selling. So instead of spending hours uploading pictures, paying fees and postage they wanted to find an easier method.
The Metre Markets are a perfect place for local designers, artisans and other creative people to showcase their wares. If you would like to have a stall, applications are now open. All you have to do is register for a space, bring all your goodies, hang them up and sell them.
Among the stallholders you will find at the markets were Oddnuts Apparel, Pheobe Paradise print tees, Jadewood Designs jewellery, In Bloom Flower Co, The White Owl Boutique, Life of Daisyy, Nikke Horrigan, Evangeline and Soul Quartz crystal jewellery.
Metre Market values sustainable shopping and provides an opportunity for the Brisbane community to come together and play their part in helping the environment. By recycling your wardrobe, you are helping to save energy, water and non-renewable resources that are used to make new goods.
The Metre Markets will be held regularly so visit their website or Facebook page for upcoming dates.
