Brisbane Planner Markets

Well, it finally happened! The first ever Brisbane Planner Markets was held today, Sunday the 28th of August at Samford Community Centre and it turned out to be a success!

The doors opened at 9am and apparently, there were already over a hundred people lined up even before the stall holders started setting up! The first 100 people received goodie bags full of stickers, planner supplies, stationery, vouchers and coupons - no wonder so many were eager to get in early!

This photo was taken by Bianca from Washi Tape Australia - the organiser of the event. More photos of the market at the official Brisbane Planner Markets Facebook page:

By the time I got to the markets, it was past 11:30am - which was a great time because it definitely wasn't as crowded anymore, and I was able to stroll around to get a proper look at the things for sale. Plus, I got to meet and chat with some of the store owners a little bit! It was nice to meet some of the Etsy sellers I've purchased from before and have interacted with on Instagram and Facebook.

Of course, I ended up buying a lot of stuff! This was pretty much my Birthday present, so I didn't hold back too much. Below is what I splurged on - Mulberry Pop Planner (absolutely high quality, one of the best planners ever), stickers from various Etsy shops, washi tapes, planner accessories, notebooks and bits and pieces to beautify my planners.

Brisbane Planner Market Haul

Shops I purchased from besides Mulberry Pop included Linserts & Teddi Confetti, Wonderfully Women, Maverick and Rogers, Bee's Sticker Addict, Fox & Cactus, Cynamin Designs, Blackbird Print Co, Miss Adaline, Flutterby Planners, Craftmum80 and Washi Tape Australia. I wish I could've bought more - something from each shop that were there, but I already spent well above my budget!  Next time, definitely, no limit expense! :D

Overall, I had a great time and was so glad I ended up going!
