It’s a fact. Gold Coast babies and children are some of the most styling wee humans going. And it’s little wonder! With the sheer magnitude of talented local designers and creatives living on the Coast, who’ve broken free of the nine-to-five mould to build one-of-a-kind brands and follow their passions.
Sure, we’ve got a tonne of fab lifestyle markets on the Gold Coast already, but the gals behind Hide & Seek Children’s Market saw an opportunity for a fresh new kids-specific offering; one that championed the wealth of skilled local designers and creators in the children’s space. Mums to one-year-olds and both with a background in events, we can thank friends Kaurissa and Bec for spearheading this cute new initiative.
Instead of wasting hours scrolling on Instagram and virtually piecing together your babe’s next outfit; come and meet these mumpreneurs and childrenswear designers IRL. Gathering under one wintery sunny sky (fingers crossed), you’ll be cooing over wares so adorable your ovaries are guaranteed to explode.
It is intended Hide & Seek will be a quarterly event, popping up at the end of each season at Miami State High School. So, while you just might bag a bargain from the months past, you’ll most certainly find plenty to deck out your mini me in the latest on-trend seasonal fashions and wares.
We’ve been told to expect beautifully crafted children’s clothing and accessories, decor, toys, furnishings, family photographers, doulas and oh so much more. Stallholders are handpicked, with an emphasis on those using quality materials and goods that are ethically produced. Some notable local brands already on the agenda include Sacred Bundle, Stevie Wanders, Gertrude and the King, Catch A Falling Star and LV Kid.
Adding to the whimsical family-friendly atmosphere, there will be yummy food trucks with eats for both the big and little kids, live music, story telling and kids crafts activities headed up by the loveable Rach of The Craft Parlour. Mums, dads, grandparents and parents-to-be, mark Saturday 26 August in your diary now and prepare to welcome another heart-warming community event to the fold!
