Spotlight on a Stall holder – Maureen

September A Plus Market (Box Hill) - Info

spotlight on a stall holder

We have such a great diversity of pre-loved stall holders at the upcoming
A Plus Market Box Hill
,
that it’s worthwhile introducing another.

Previously the bubbly Ayse was introduced, now here is the ever crafty Maureen!

Maureen recently reduced her work hours and wants to reduce her clothes store accordingly. Working part time has made more time for her hobbies cross stitch and dressmaking. Holding a monthly market stall selling her beautiful hand made children’s clothes, bags, cushions and  cross stitch cards, Maureen is an old hat at markets.

Maureen has graciously answered a few questions so we get to know her and her fashion and what will be kitting out her pre-loved plus size fashion stall.

What’s your personal style?

I’m pretty conservative, but some may say it’s a bit left of centre, but its definitely my own!

 What is your favourite fashion style of all time?

The thirties, Gatsby era. I love the head pieces they wore and beautiful lines of their dresses.

Do you prefer dressing for the colder or warmer months?

I much prefer the warmer months. There are much prettier styles available and lovely floral patterns.

Can you share your best fashion tip?

If it feels good, looks good [on you] then go with it.

What are you selling at A Plus Market?

I’m reducing the bulk of my work wear. However they are not classic business clothes. I have hardly worn shirts and skirts along with some evening dresses, evening jackets, day dresses, long line tops and lots, lots more!

Come and grab some of the bargains Maureen is serving up at A Plus Market. This Sunday the 29th of September at Box Hill Community Arts Centre, 10am-3pm, 470 Station Street, Box Hill.

The Box Hill A Plus Market has a entirely new array of stall holders!
First to be introduced is one of our gorgeous ladies clearing out her closet, Ayse (pronounced Aisha).

Ayse is a 29 year old stay at home Mother from the South-East of Melbourne who is a self confessed internet clothes shopping addict.AishaVery kindly Ayse gives us some insights into her fashion style and hints at some of the treasures she will be bringing to the Box Hill A Plus Market on Sunday the 29th of September.

How would you describe your fashion style?

Vivacious!
Lots of colours and chunky jewellery

What’s your favourite piece of clothing and why?

I love my long length cardigans,
they are versatile and cover all the right areas

Do you love to accessorise or prefer to keep your look simple?

Definitely accessorise, especially with earrings. I cannot walk out of the house without earrings. I feel naked without them

If you had to choose, would you pick a handbag or shoes?

I totally agree with this quote from Sarah Jessica Parker as Carrie Bradshaw (“Sex And The City”)

“I’m thinking balls are to men, what purses are to women. It’s just a little bag but we’d feel naked in public without it.”

What is your favourite fashion ‘rule’ to break?

Rule # Don’t mix Gold and Silver….

Mix it up!!!!! I love mixing rose gold and silver necklaces.

Aisha’s A Plus Market stall will feature brands such as ASOS, Myer, City Chic and some from overseas amongst others.

Come and relieve her of these gorgeous clothes and  help her continue her online clothes shopping sprees.A Plus Market Box Hill flyer

Spotlight on a stall holder – Amara

August A Plus Market - Stall holders and info

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.
