New Stock

September 27, 2011

We are getting loads of new animals ready for our upcoming markets and thought we would post a few pics of our current stock. Grandma Chuckles launched her new vintage dogs and monkeys at the High Noon Street Festival and sold out completely! Thanks to everyone who came and visited or purchased some Chuckles Toys. We received great feedback on the new look of our stall and are still working on ways to make it more appealing and accessible to our visitors.

This Saturday is, as you would all know, Grand Final day, but it is also the next Sister’s Market at Brunswick Town Hall. I am currently working on some Collingwood and Geelong themed sock animals to sell at the market so if you are a fan drop into the market in the morning and pick up a sock mascot and if you are not, come along and avoid the Grand Final festivities.

Mathilda’s Market

September 16, 2011


I am very pleased to announce that Chuckles Designs will be at our first ever Mathilda’s Market. We are very excited! It is the christmas market held at Caulfield Racecourse on November 27th. We will keep you informed as we get closer to the date. Grandma Chuckles and I are doing something ‘Chuckles’ related every day to make sure we have plenty of new and wonderful stock to bring to the market.

For your immediate Chuckles needs, we will be at High Noon Festival this Sunday, September 18 from 10am till 6pm so get yourselves down to the festival and remember to drop in to the town hall to visit us stallholders. We will also be at the upcoming Sisters Market on Grand Final day so remember to come and say hello before you hit the Grand Final Festivities.

Lastly, check out my most recent mini monkey. I just finished and haven’t decided whether I can part with it, he is so teeny tiny he fits in the palm of my hand…awwww

High Noon Festival

September 9, 2011

High Noon Festival is approaching fast. Grandma Chuckles and I will be at the Northcote Town Hall market next Sunday (sept 18) from 10am-6pm as a part of the High Street festival come-back. A few weeks later we will be at the Sisters Market in Brunswick and many mini monkeys will soon be making their journey to the Little Shop of Handmade in Carnegie. The first little vintage scotty dog made by Grandma Chuckles has already been adopted by my darling Puddin’ baby, James. He loves that dog sooooo much, walking around hugging and kissing it…”dog, dog, dog, dog, dog, dog, dog, dog.”

I have quite a lot of monkeys stuffed and ready to sew and a fair amount already in stock so please email to place any orders or come visit at High Noon next weekend. Will post some pictures when I finish the new batch. We are also planning a big change in the presentation of our market stalls, however I am having trouble getting my hands on two hat/coat stands…so if you know of any I would love to hear about them! Meanwhile, I will post some pictures of my lovely children just because I think they are wonderful.
