Out and About: Allie's Attic Hunter's Hill

We are totally stoked to be involved with this fantastic new boutique children's market!
Each month (except Jan) Allie's Attic pops up in a different location in Sydney.
In November we headed to Hunter's Hill and had a gorgeous day for the event in the grounds of the Hunter's Hill Community Church. We were surrounded by gorgeous designers including The Red Thread (who was one of our pics at MM), Paperklip, Lelli Kelly, Miss Haidee, Bambooty and Karimu (can't wait to see the bonnet they are making for my Amalia)!!
This is the absolute BEST place to get all your Christmas shopping done!
Sick of seeing the same old same old in the shopping centres?
Then come to Allie's Attic this Saturday 12th December
at Paddington Town Hall!!

New Stockist: Green Habits

We are thrilled to introduce you to this gorgeous eco boutique!
Situated in the gorgeous Stanwell Park on Illawarra Coast - only 40minutes drive from the Sutherland Shire - a fantastic place to venture to on your Sunday outing - stop at the shops and check out Green Habits - gorgeous eco friendly and fair trade gifts, children's clothing and accessories - then take a swim at the beach, a play at the park, and my pic for lunch is the absolutely fabulous Scarbarough Pub - through the summer months, they often have entertainment and free face painting for the kids!

Out and About: Mathilda's Markets

Had the great pleasure of visiting Mathilda's Markets at the beginning of November - it was great to get in the spirit of things the week before our first Allie's Attic market!

My top pics from the day are from top left Blinking Flights, The Red Thread, Crazy Ape Bananas, Alfie and Nina, and Loz and Dinny !!

The Baby Show September 2009

We recently exhibited at The Baby Show in Sydney.
The event was held at The Royal Hall of Industries at Moore Park, next to Fox Studios.
It was very exciting to be involved in this event - being the first one in Australia,
and my daughter delighted in meeting Dorothy the Dinosaur and her friends
Waggs, Henry and Captain Feathersword at the opening.
The event was superbly set up, with a gorgeous variety of exhibitors of products,
ranging from your most exquisite prams, to stunning photography, and we were
thrilled to stand alongside established children's designers and upcomming boutique
children's wear designers. Everything from Oobi and Pumpkin Patch, to
Natures Baby, L'il Ludy swimwear, and gorgeous Jock and Tilly.
In the pictures above - our exhibitor's stand
Pics of the models in the fashion parade with our clothing -
we were honoured to be asked to supply four outfits for the fashion parade.
My beautiful sister Loren was a fantastic help over the weekend, and also
a big Thank You to Anne from Czarque (gorgeous baby shoes) we loved being neighbours,
and she was fantastic company. Also to Susan from Agoo who also helped out on Sunday.
Abby from Global Style was also so much fun to hang out with - and some wonderful
words of wisdom from this funky chick who has been operating now for 10years!
Kelly from Little Bubble and Tree is an absolute delight, she made the trip up from
Melbourne and we just love her styling and displays - so clever!
And lastly, our gorgeous friend Elizar from Huggalugs was a real crowd favourite -
speaking on stage at the mumpreneurs seminar, and looked a sight walking around
the show in her hot pink leg ruffles and stilettos!
You can grab Huggalugs in our store - check out the gorgeous leg ruffles!

Out and About: Kids In Style Melbourne

At the end of July, you may remember that we took a trip down to Melbourne as we were invited to showcase
Cheeky Chickies Free Range Clothing at the Kids Fashion Review VIP Party.
It was perfect timing, as we were also able to visit the Kids In Style trade show that was on at The Royal Exhibition Hall in Melbourne. This is an absolutley gorgeous venue as you can see, and it is very exciting that come March 2010, we will also be exhibiting here as we will be heading to Melbourne with The Baby Show!!
We have a little round up of things that took our fancy at the Melbourne KIS:
Ramalama produce a gorgeous range of maternity and baby wear from gorgeous organic cotton fabrics. Their gear is oh so funky, and their wrap dress is particularly devine - perfect even when you are not preggers - just an easy comfy stylish dress! We first met Deena when she dropped by and introduced herself to us at the KFR VIP Party, and caught up with her the following day at the KIS show. Ramalama were also a highlight at the recent Baby Show in Sydney, and will be exhibiting at Allie's Attic in November and December (more on those in later posts)
Eco Peko have the most gorgeous little eco-friendly slogan tees and we were really impressed with Justine's totally cool eco cubby house at the KIS show.
This season's must have! Princess Ratbag have the most gorgeous and pettiskirts - total girly glamour!
We were so stoked to meet our gorgeous Lisa from Cheeky Little Soles in person. You may remember that we featured a few of these funky little shoes in our first spring/summer photo shoot, and we will have a few more in our second shoot that we are doing on Monday - featuring our Party Skirts and new Mini Bubble Shorts - so look out for them!
Lastly, we just absolutley fell in love with this super stylish vintage inspired Aussie label! Olive's Friend Pop is a collection of vintage-inspired, original clothing for little girls, but as that's a bit long, we call it 'nostalgic playwear'. Their creations are inspired by proper little-girls' clothes of our grandmothers' generation, Post WWII, and from a time when little girls looked like little girls. A bit like modern-day heirlooms. Due to launch in Februay 2010, you can check them out at

We love Babyjo!

Being on the Internet gives us a wealth of opportunities to discover new designer kids products, so from time to time we will let you know about some of the stuff that we just LOVE!

As much as we think Cheeky Chickies Free Range Clothing is tops - we know that our kids' wardrobes are not solely made up of the one label :)

This week we are letting you know about Babyjo Bamboo Wear.

Babyjo's new "Aiko" range has just been released and features a gorgeous japanese kimono styling. Made from bamboo, an eco friendly and environmentally sustainable material, Babyjo Bamboo clothing is stylish, affordable and oh-so-cute! They offer a gorgeous range of clothing essentials for newborns to size 3, gift sets for new arrivals, personalised handmade gifts and a beautiful range of 2 layer bamboo/organic cotton blankets for summer or winter. Bamboo Fibre has the most luxurious feel to it - almost like a cross between cashmere and silk and it "wicks" moisture away from the body to keep baby's skin clean and comfortable.

How cute is this little chickie! Another great feature, is that their pyjamas come in both a single layer or a double layer for the colder climates!

visit to purchase online and tell Jo we sent you :)

Out and About: Oyster Bay Art & Craft Festival

A few weeks ago, we ventured out to hold a little stall at the Oyster Bay Art and Craft Festival.

Here's a couple of pics of our little stall - we had hoped to win the competition for the best dressed stall, but that went to our friends from Plantet Yum! Check out their scrumptious cupcake soaps!

Below is our friend Ellie from MaybeBaby - we first worked together back in the early days of 2006 and it was great to catch up again and see how far our businesses have come - I just loved Ellie's little tees and bought the "Greenie to Be" for my little man :)
