Thought for Thursday

Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.
Henry David Thoreau

This is one of those quotes that I like to have around the place because it helps me to focus and reminds me of the power in our thoughts. Ten years ago, my life was quite different. I was happy, well loved and successful but it was not full of the bliss that I now experience everyday. It is good to remember that life is ever changing - so dream big!

I believe that Rachael and Leasl from the Boutique Markets exemplify this quote beautifully. Less than two years ago they established a small boutique market in Brisbane's north. They had a vision to create a unique, boutique market, shopping experience and carefully collected retailers who supported this vision and whose wares enhanced the exclusive atmosphere and creative vibe of their dream. When the market outgrew it's original venue, these girls took a brave step and the final Designers Emporium market was put to bed in February this year. They maintained interest in the market and continued to build their following through their ever changing blog as they hunted for a new, improved location to match the markets they imagined. Wow! Did they ever succeed. The relaunched Boutique Markets will debut this Sunday at Portside, Hamilton and we are delighted to be part of the crazy, creative crew of retailers that you will find in this gorgeous location. The markets run from 8am to 1pm and the venue is perfect for a lazy stroll through the markets and a yummy, Sunday brunch.

We'd love you to come and visit. We are looking forward to catching up with old friends from the Designers Emporium and meeting lots of new ones, too! We have recently sourced a new supplier for our tees and are excited to be able to offer a neat, puff sleeve, fitted, girls tee as well as our standard tee. We think our designs look cuter than ever on these tees and we'd love to hear what you think.

A big thanks to Liesa from The Handmade Expo because our followers now number in the twenties! We feel very loved!
