Sunday, 17th March 2013 at Kingston Town Hall in Moorabbin.
I have always been a bit of a softie for Vintage Markets but this market was definitely one of the impressive one’s I have been to.
I parked across the Kingston Town Hall on Nepean Highway and could see flocks of women walking in and of course excitement starts to creep in seeing people walking out with 3 or 4 bags as like most women I love shopping.
To greet you at the door is the lovely Emma who is the organiser of the Round She Goes Markets and up the stairs you go to a huge hall full of stalls.
I was on the look out for a dress for a wedding and I have never worn a vintage formal dress before but there is always a first time for everything. I ended up finding a gorgeous silk designer dress with hand sewn beading across the whole dress from Dorothy’s Closet. There is actually history behind the dress, it was worn by Dorothy’s Closet’s mum who used to be a wedding singer. How ironic is that?
I have decided that I will get a special piece of jewellery made from Langi Designs who creates the most unique pieces of items to go with the dress.
Back to the market, I also met some of the other stalls with their funky, fashionable, vintage and stunning pieces of clothing, jewellery, shoes, coats, handbags & accessories. Some of these fantastic stalls are Limonia with some vintage handbags, Kaamer Boutique with their stylish fashion accessories, Aacute with their awesome vintage style clothing, Crimson Gardenia with their swing-era-styled clothing & accessories for that classic look.
But to finish off my day I bought a real vintage jacket from Lady Soul Vinyl DJ which obviously was meant for me as it fit perfectly, so I had to get it!!!!

Welcome to Markets and Community
Written by: Nitty Brown
Welcome to Markets and Community.
Thank you to subscribers, markets, stallholders, community event organisers, advertisers and visitors for being part of the launch of this fabulous website.
My name is Nitty Brown, the founder of Markets and Community Pty Ltd. My husband and I love going to markets especially during weekends away or holidays, however we always found it hard to find a market near us or the information was outdated leading to non existing markets. So as every entrepreneur does, I woke up early one morning with an idea to build a website that listed all markets around Australia no matter how large or small.
I approached my website designer (Mod Media) and told him about my concept and the best thing was he was able to vision what I was thinking. Together we built this amazing website that gives an opportunity for markets to be listed aswell as stallholders and community events.
We believe that stallholders who have wonderful talents and ideas need a chance to be recognised and easily found via the internet, we are endeavouring to work closely with them to help promote their talents and businesses.
Through social media we will be promoting the various markets, stallholders and community events.
Our aim is to also have a one stop site for community events such as your local school fete’s, church fairs or even an art exhibition, we want the communities to attract visitors from neighbouring communities or even people visiting from interstate or overseas.
We will be visiting various markets and fairs throughout the year and we will be writing about those markets on our blog.
If you would like us to list your favourite markets please send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or use the contact us tab.
I look forward to building close relationships with markets and stallholders.
Please be patient with us as we build our site to list all the markets, we will be working very hard on this large project. If you would like be kept informed you can subscribe to our website and receive a fortnightly newsletter on whats happening around you.
Regards and happy searching.
