A Plus Market loves diversity and those that are gentle on the Earth.

So are very pleased to be showcasing,
Sassy Kandles.

Their range of gorgeous candles is both unique and eco friendly.

Each Sassy Kandles candle created uses 100% soy wax, an all natural, biodegradable product free of petrochemicals. But even better, each candle is presented in an original and unique sometimes even vintage container.

Each candle is hand poured by Susie, into an individually selected upcycled vessel, making each candle a one off creation in it’s own right. The only way to recreate each individual candle is to have it refilled, a service Susie is more than happy to offer at a reasonable price.

This particular church runs a sewing group who really got on board with the idea of  A Plus Market and decided to sew up some luxurious products ready for you on Saturday, 31st of August.

These beautiful plus size robes (or nightingowns as I like to call them) are hand made from beautiful vintage silk sari’s.

Make sure you come down on Saturday if you want one of these gorgeous one of a kind robes.

Saturday the 31st not only brings us some great fashion bargains but also some great fun. For our entertainment we have a part of the ever wonderful Fire &Theft! performing their luxurious Latin’n’Lounge!

But be warned – the wanton Moroccan rolling of FIRE&THEFT was designed to release the inner swing burglar – the one your innate sense of dance’n’romance has been shyly guarding against for all too long now…..

Not only do we have fabulous new and vintage plus size fashion available at A Plus Market, we have women just like you offering up their fantastic pre-loved pieces.

I thought it would be nice to shine some light on one of our pre-loved purveyors.
I’d like to introduce you to the lovely, Amara.

A 29 year old full time working mother to a 2 year old, Amara is a self professed shop-a-holic and loves to blog about her fashion finds.

I asked Amara to let us in on some of her fashion tips and give us a hint of what she will be bringing along to the August A Plus Market. Here’s what she said:

How would you define your fashion style in a few words?

Trend driven.

Where’s your favourite place to shop?

ASOS Curve it is affordable fashion for plus size women and bang on trend. 


What’s your favourite piece of clothing (or accessory)?

Anything Peplum!  It really works for my body shape.
I also love earrings, I can’t leave the house without them, I feel naked. 


What’s your best fashion tip?

Own some basics in your wardrobe, a white and black t-shirt, a pair of jeans and a good jacket. You are guaranteed to always find something that goes with any of them if your having a “I don’t have anything to wear” day. 


What’s your pet peeve about the plus size fashion industry in Australia?

It is hard to find trendy plus size fashion, although this is starting to change. It is also really hard to find plus size fashion stores especially in the country. 

Why are you having a stall at A Plus Market?

I am literally a shop-a-holic, cannot go one week without purchasing something so maybe if I sell a few things, I might get my dream Mulberry handbag!

Amara will be selling brand new clothing with tags from some UK brands including Marks & Spencer and Dorothy Perkins. As well as a heap of pre-loved goodies from ASOS Curve, New Look, Sussan, Next plus shoes and accessories.

Make sure you come along to the debut A Plus Market on Saturday the 31st of August and help Amara get her dream handbag.
