Love Child hosted our third Mini Market last Sunday, April 28th at the gorgeous South Congress Hotel and oh was it a dream! While the crowds gathered outside in the bright and airy courtyard, ur vendors were hard at work setting up the most gorgeous displays of their unique goods. At 10am, we opened the doors to a line of guests, some of whom had been waiting in line for over an hour! A huge thanks to our volunteers (all mamas!) who organized our gift bags sponsored by BumbleBFF, and handed them out to the first forty guests through the doors.
Just outside the main space was our Mama Lounge hosted by June and January, Austin-based children’s clothing that focuses on bright and modern basics. It was in the lounge that guests were provided a space to nurse, pump, and change their babies. Complete with a Nugget Comfort, the space was also used as a break room for little guests who needed to get some wiggles out.
New to Mini Market this year, was live music sponsored by Little Limbo. Mr. Will, Austin’s most popular children’s musician played two sets throughout the afternoon and got everyone on their feet. Stephen F. Frostin’, the hotels food truck created a menu perfect for the littles keeping all the kiddos fed, which made the parents very happy!
And did you catch that balloon installation by Ballooms? It was the perfect backdrop for photos and served as the grand entrance to Mini Market, which was a sight to see!
