I'm very excited to be talking about Mee a Bee's Australian debut. In July this year Mee a Bee will be participating in Mathilda's Market in Sydney, Australia. This is huge as Mee a Bee has only been seen by a select few friends and customers in Oz.
I can't attend the market personally but the wonderful and generous Katharine of Alfalfa has agreed to co-host a stand with me and run it on my behalf. She'll be assisted by my auntie. Isn't that great?
This morning Little Guy and I picked up a few things at the 100 yen shop that might be used to decorate our corner at the market. Pictured here are some of Alfalfa's cool crafts - a plastic covered purse - a bit battered since I use it everyday as a coin purse - and a cute locket necklace with fabric inside.
We got fabric to cover the table, hooks which might be used for hanging necklaces, boxes to elevate parts of the display and I couldn't resist a little bento lunchbox. We want our stand to scream CUTE from JAPAN. I trust Katharine and Shayne to create an amazing feast for the eyes that will have our customers squealing with delight and hopefully buying our delightful offerings.
I'll be spending every waking hour preparing for this over the next few weeks. There's a lot to do. I'm really excited about it though!
