Love Child hosted our second Mini Market last Sunday, November 4th at the gorgeous South Congress Hotel and once again, it felt like a dream of a day! Mini Market started as a need to gather Mama & Baby brands in one place to make shopping and socializing convenient for moms, and last Sunday did not disappoint. Nestled in the back of the property in South Congress Hotel’s large event space, we opened the glass doors and welcomed the crisp morning air. It was the perfect backdrop to the 35 incredible and unique vendors we hosted, some coming from as far as Los Angeles and New York City. We opened the doors a few minutes after 10am (I blame daylight savings) and we were met with a line of guests, some who had been waiting in line for over two hours! As promised, the first 30 guests through the doors were welcomed with a gift bag of goodies from sponsors like Madewell, May Designs, Chewbeads, Read Between The Lines, Kendra Scott all printed on totes by Kong Screenprinting. As guests walked through the hotel, they passed by our first (but certainly not last) Mama Lounge hosted by June and January. It was in the lounge that guests were provided a space to nurse, pump, and change their babies all while trying on the new nursing-friendly line by June and January called JJMama. Keep an eye out for this launch on Black Friday. This nursing mama can’t wait! Thank you to everyone who joined us and supported our 35 small business vendors. We loved getting to know you and meeting your sweet families. In case you couldn’t make Mini Market, head over to our instagram to get to know and shop our vendors. We’ll be bringing you the date for our Spring Market soon–stay tuned! Gorgeous photography by Alysha Rainwaters
