Mathilda’s Market…thanks everyone!

November 27, 2011

Just a quick note to thank all of those who came along to help make our first Mathilda’s market a great success. What an incredible turn out! Over 160 stalls of such high quality, unique crafts for our favourite little people.

I only spent…ummm, all of my profits on goodies for the kids. Finally scored some green sunglasses for Miss Chuckles from A Teaspoon of Colour, a gorgeous bag of wooden cars for Puddsy and a new hat for his gigantic head from Missmouse. I was terribly distraught to find that after skipping breakfast in the mad rush the only food within my reach was the scrumptious cupcakes made by The Cake Collective, mmmmm delicious!

For all of those crafters trying to decide whether they should give Mathilda’s a go, definitely do! The market was so well-organised and heavily promoted. The experience of the organisers is evident throughout the whole process and consideration is given to both stall holders and market-goers alike. Ample space is provided for showcasing your craft and aisles are wide enough for multiple double prams! Thanks again, Mamma and Grandma Chuckles.x

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
