A Plus Market – my personal shopping adventure

September A Plus Market (Box Hill) - Info

Some of the stall holders at September’s A Plus Market figured out quite quickly that my decision to create A Plus Market is more than a way to enter the work force but also an elaborate way of getting my shopping done.

Augmenting one’s wardrobe has never been so much FUN!

2013-09-30 023 2013-09-30 029 2013-09-30 104

Playing dress up’s with friends new and old, having personal dressers (thanks Ayse), all in comfortable and relaxed surrounds can not be beaten.

Or can it?

I think YES, because I forgot to mention the BARGAIN prices!

The above haul with some other pieces too, like a glamorous full length, thigh high split ASOS Curve black (NWOT) dress and a cute flirty LBD didn’t blow the credit card. I won’t say exactly how much I spent. Let’s just say if I had two pineapples to start with, I still had some change!

A Plus Market isn’t just about bargains though because there is always some very gorgeous NEW wares there too.

Whether it be original handmade dresses, new designer clothing or the
beautiful handbags, sparkly jewels, sandals, boots and even more glorious products, no matter what size you are, there is sure to be something for you.

So my advice to you, is MAKE SURE YOU MAKE IT to the NEXT A Plus Market!

Follow this link to this years market dates!

PS My hat goes off to all the fashion bloggers out there, as the above photos took ages. Too many selfies and too many groans from the hubby. Thanks darl.

I’d love to see what you got on the day too!

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.

IMG_1303

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.
