Love Little Miss

This week's feature business is brand new to the market scene and I am so excited to be able to introduce them to you all here!! 

Love Little Miss had their very first market stall at Once Upon A Market on the 7th April 2012 and we were absolutely delighted to have them there and be their very first market experience! 

 Love Little Miss is made up of 2 gorgeous sisters,
Leanne and Kerry who between them have 3 little girls and 2 little boys and another baby girl on the way. They are extremely family orientated and love to spend time together which was the main reason that Love Little Miss came about.

Both Leanne and Kerry, without knowing each others plans, decided to look into creating facebook businesses to sell their handmade baby items and hair accessories. While chatting one day they realised that they both had similar ideas and decided to join together and have been working on their joint business ever since.
 Love Little Miss was started on Facebook in September 2011. Both Leanne and Kerry's love of fancy clips and girls accessories came from their many years of dancing when they were young girls. After always wearing cute girls accessories during their dancing stage it was easy for them to get started creating and forming their business. And with the help of their little girls they have the perfect models......and their items are so bright and fun that their boys even try to wear them! :P

At Love Little Miss you will find a wide variety of different hair accessories for the princesses in your life. All their hair accessories are handmade with love and attention to detail and include hair clips, headbands and hats.

But that's not all!! You can also find some gorgeous baby items including taggies and decorated baby singlets!! which can make perfect gifts for baby showers!! and the girls also have in their range some super pretty pencils, vintage brooches and so much more.

Now we all love to shop for handmade items and that includes the lovely girls at Love Little Miss :D when I asked them what they love to buy handmade they shared with me some of their favourite items that they have purchased - "Between us we have bought many handmade trees to decorate our girls rooms with, hair items, pettiskirts, baby products, and party decorations/favours (we have done Smurf themed parties and Hoot themed parties this year)."

Well now we all know a little bit more about Love Little Miss I am sure you can't wait to head over and see all the items that they have to offer and get to know them a bit more!!

You will find the Love Little Miss girls at our next Once Upon A Market on June 2nd 2012!!

Easter Market April 7th 2012

 Well our second market was held on the 7th April at the Littlehampton Peace Memorial Hall, and what a day it was!! Everybody arrived bright and early and were all set up for our 10am opening!! and the room quickly filled with customers as they came to see what we had to offer!! and it certainly was something for everyone!! 

Hand-Iced cookie Pops
The coffee machine we purchased for the kitchen did its very best to keep up with everybody as they came in for coffee's and hot chocolates!! I must admit the hot chocolate was extremly tasty but my favourite was the Chai Latte!! yum! and a great start to the morning.......Right next to the kitchen the Easter cupcakes and Hand-iced Cookies from Cake Expectations by Aimee were going like hot cakes.....even I couldn't resist the temptation!! just look at those colours!!

There were oohs and aahs all around and they went so fast I missed out on getting some of those cute little burrowing bunny cupcakes!! how cute do they look? I did manage to get my hands on some white choc mud cupcakes and carrot and walnut so I was happy anyway :P

While everyone was enjoying their morning tea, the children were having a blast joining in on our Easter hunt!! which was only able to happen with the help of some of our amazing stall-holders!! the kids got really excited as they used their clues to hunt out which stalls had the eggs!!

Some of the clues were a bit tricky but all the kids managed to find all the eggs and at the final stall they were given a cute little chicken to take home as well as a bigger chocolate egg!! lucky little munchkins!! and they all had such lovely manners :D

 But food and easter eggs weren't all you found at the Once Upon A Market. Stalls were filled with goodies for adults, babies, children and even pets!! We had two stalls for pets on the day including PupCakes who provided healthy treats for dogs and we also had Help Save the Furry Ones who have a great stall dedicated to saving cats!! Their donation box was filling up with help from the customers.

We had unique, customised art work from the very talented LiviArt and we had kids items including crocheted beanies, toys, pettiskirts, clothing, wooden items and much more.

The stall-holders all did a fantastic job with their stalls which resulted in a very bright, colourful and fun place to shop!!

Baby Blue's Bows

At Baby Blue's stall you could find bows galore for all ages!! I even found myself a great bow with my favourite star - Johnny Depp in Cry Baby on it!! what a find that was.....You can truly find some amazing and unique items at Baby Blue!! Great stall for teen girls!

If you couldn't make it to the Easter Market you really did miss out on a truly fun day!! But that is ok because our next market is coming up on Saturday 2nd June and will have a special Winter Theme. So make sure you come on down and join us for another day of fun! and grab all your handmade winter needs!!
