A Plus Size Wardrobe Market

Olivia, the wonderful, outdid herself this weekend. The A Plus Size Wardrobe event was fun and friendly and well, the food was pretty darn extraordinary. I am a little biased when it comes to great food and drink. I like it fresh and yummy and plentiful. And it was all that and more. Even when I got overly excited and flung some on the floor. But oh my goodness was a sidetrack this is. It was after all about plus size fashion. So let’s try very hard to bring me back on track, shall we?

Today we loaded up my cousin’s car {mine is much too small, you see} and made the trip to Brisbane to sell off some of our clothes, shoes and stuff. We were {are?} complete market stall type newbies. Between Kylie and I we had over thought everything. How to display things, what to take, how to price items and all that type of thing. We had items sized between 14 and 24. We were ready and raring to go.

We made our first sale to the first lady through the door. Excitement was at a fever pitch. It dulled a little for our stall after that. Sure we would have liked to have sold more stuff, made more Christmas cash, but that’s the way the cookie crumbles. It didn’t put much of a dampener on the day though, I chatted with the other stall holders, ate lots {did I mention that?} and spent some time with the plus size ladies of Brisbane.

By the way, other store holders reported bumper sales! I’m looking at you Liv! Haha. Such a successful day. I got home and felt like I needed a nap. But we were babysitting my 2 year old niece so there was no napping to be had. I’ll recover, I’m sure. Now scroll down and enjoy some photos. Because it turns out, taking photos is my new favourite way to tell the stories around here. It’s fun. I even finally got around to editing some of the photos from Plus Size Fashion Weekend. They’ll be on the blog later this week.

    Looks like a great day! What was the food? What was in the goody bags!

      It was great fun. Lots of bargains to be had. The food was chunky chips and aioli, wedges and sour cream, loads of wraps and sandwiches {I had at least 5 wraps and ALL of them were good}. Haha. To be honest I haven’t even opened the goodie bag! Whoops. I suck at this.

    Are you going to list the stuff you didn’t sell somewhere?

    • http://sugercoatit.com/ Melissa Walker Horn

      I’ll probably put some of the good stuff on eBay. I’ll let you guys know.

    I went to one in Melbs. My mum was staying and she went with me and had a ball. I don’t think mum’s ever seen a room full of fatshionistas before!

      They’re great! Oh how cool. Love it when Mum’s get involved.

    You should def think about having a little sale on here to get rid of all your excess items :)

    • http://sugercoatit.com/ Melissa Walker Horn

      Hey Sym, I might just do that. Or share a link to eBay anyway. Or something… Not sure yet.

      • http://www.facebook.com/symone.mckenzie Sym Mckenzie

        Yeah a link to eBay sounds great :)

        • http://sugercoatit.com/ Melissa Walker Horn

          Will do. I grabbed some photos yesterday and will start loading them up tonight, I hope. Unless a better offer comes up. Haha.

    Lol you can see my feverish crazy eyes in that photo! Thanks so much for everything. It was such a great day and I think everyone had heaps of fun! xxxxxx

    • http://sugercoatit.com/ Melissa Walker Horn

      You don’t have crazy eyes… Much! HA.

      You’re welcome lovely. It was a great day. I’m still thinking of the salmon wraps. They were SO good. SOOOOO GOOD.

    It was a brilliant day and a pleasure to meet you! I sold about a third of the stuff I had there, it would have been great to sell some more, sure, but just to send my poor fatshion orphans out into the world was worth it. I hate seeing good plus-size clothes going unloved.

    For anything left over, hang on because a new service called Abbey Post is about to start up, where you can sell your stuff on consignment online in a forum for plus-size clothes only. Awesome huh? I believe she is launching in the next few days.

    BTW, can I please have a copy of the photo of the shoes, I want to sell those on eBay and that’s a great shot of them!

    • http://sugercoatit.com/ Melissa Walker Horn

      Great result. This close to Christmas {and all the sales, haha} we all would’ve loved to sell more. Absolutely, lovely plus clothes need great new homes

      Sounds great, can’t wait to check it out!

      I’ve sent the photo BUT I just realised I sent the photo of you. HA. I’ll send the shoe one now.
