Read on for our recap of the day, and to see if you can spot yourself in any of the snaps!
After a two-year hiatus, our flagship Mama Marketplace event returned to Hong Kong, this time popping up at the Hive Spring in Wong Chuk Hang. We had more than 25 fantastic marketplace vendors, fun and games for the kids, plus delicious food and drinks (as well as a sunny terrace to relax on), and were joined by over 250 guests of all ages on the day.
From jewellery to glassware, baby clothes to greeting cards, there was something for everyone, with a whole host of local brands showcasing their wares. A huge thanks to Finnly’s Fine Jewellery, BOMSHBEE, Merci Dandy, The Jewel Fix, VeryVerySticky, Anthea Cooper Jewellery, Little Islanders, Paper-Roses, Oolive Jewelry, Lavulous Workshop, The Wee Bean, Sempimimi, ZeroYet100, Meow Moo, DNA Diversity, TinyBitz, feloSophie, CAYA, Lil’ Souls, KBEN & HOL, Coconut Matter, Oaks of Acorn, Kristin Green & Wander Cubs for joining us!
The warm weather meant we could make good use of the Hive Spring’s terrace, which is where Minisport’s Early Years Coaches set up a free play area to keep the kids occupied (letting mums and dads browse the marketplace at their leisure).
We were also joined in the afternoon by the team from Baumhaus who hosted several of its hugely popular Kindermusik classes, and there was a queue (which included members of the Sassy Mama team!) for Karen from Avatar Face Painting throughout the day!
There was no chance of anyone going hungry as Schragels were there serving their signature NYC inspired bagels, and the team at Cookie DPT delivered us boxes of their decadent (and extremely delicious) cookies for guests and vendors to enjoy.
The teams from Peroni and Discover Wines Asia were also on hand to make sure our adult guests were never too far from a cold beer or glass of sparkling wine.
Mama Marketplace will be back (and even bigger!) in Autumn 2019. We’ll be sharing details about the event nearer the time, but in the meantime, if you’d like to be a vendor please email [email protected] to make sure you’re the first to be contacted when spots become available.
