Had a wonderful day at Paddignton Mathilda's Markets yesterday with my mum, meeting and chatting to it's amazing local designers & crafters.

The girls from Kids Style Files

You don't have to have kids (I don't) to visit Mathilda's Market.
There are lots of lovely things like; interior homewares, Mt Tape & fabrics for the crafter.

OMG! I went CRAZY at Melinda's Paperklip stationery store! With lovely homemade gift tags and tapes from Japan. Just love love loved her MT Tape garlands & masking tape sticker sets- she also had a selection of other Japan kawaii tapes. As you can see by my purchase I was in heaven. Eeeep! I can't wait to put my garland up! I had a nice long chat to Melinda too, it seems we have a lot in common. She also has a blog, which will be my new everyday click.

Corrie Sebire (Notebook magazine craft room) had a Retro Mummy kawaii Japanese fabric store, which I also went CRAZY at. So many wonderful, 'hard to find' fabrics to choose from. My mum & I got some of the bambi and polka dot fabric. Great price too for only $5!
Corrie must of been on her break when I visited, but had a delightful time chatting to Melissa. Also loved Badskirt Japanese fabric store.

One of the best parts of the day was meeting and chatting to my fave illustrator Nikki Catalano! I could honestly fill my home walls with all her amazing prints. I settled on getting another one of her cards "Girl with her Bunny Rabbit" I will be framing this!
It was so lovely to meet you Nikki!

Was sooo happy to see that The Paper Tie Affair were at Mathilda's as I love their paper garlands,framed paper butterfly creations and 3 dimensional Christmas decorations.

Had a nice long chat to Alfalfa crafts designer Katherine, who makes these delicate, unique vintage fabric necklaces & retro fabric brooches. Katherine will also be at Sydney's December, Finders Keepers.

Also loved Little Snoring's plushie french poodles, Amelie's room cupcake & sushi train wooden puzzles and Rudy & the dodo's vintage wooden toys.

It really was one of the best markets I have ever been too. Hope the links help, if there were some things you wanted to get :)
There will be another Mathilda's market later in the year too!
