Live tunes at TVM this Sunday are brought to you by three very talented gents. Here's the lineup:

8:30am - 10am: Frank George
10:15am - 11:30am: James D'Khan
11:45am - 1pm: Ondre Solien

Frank George

Frank George is a singer/songwriter infused with sounds of indie rock, folk, soul and pop.
After picking up a guitar at the age of 10, he soon began storytelling and discovering his love for music. Earlier on, days were often spent writing songs and recording himself on a tape recorder. Now he aspires to follow in the footsteps of artists like Matt Corby & Angus Stone. Frank’s dreamy melodies and raw, raspy like vocals will leave you truly captivated, while delivering compelling lyricism in a unique kind of way. Very much inspired by the sounds around him, he delves into a more experimental and versatile side, not confined by the boundaries of one particular genre. There really is no denying that Frank’s heartfelt passion for music runs deep, you can just feel it.

James D'Khan

James D’Khan is a solo singer songwriter born and raised in Byron Bay NSW. His sound delivers a blend of Funk, Soul, Folk and R&B. Accompanying his soulful vocals, James alternates playing guitar and keys. Influenced by artists such as The Beatles and Jeff Buckley, he plays a mix of his original music and cover songs in his live performances, from a diverse range of genres.

Ondre Solien

Ondre Solien is a Gold Coast based musician that shadows the likes of old and new artists. He describes his music through his subtle yet dreamy guitar and divine vocals. A long standing fave at TVM, experience Ondre's sound and you will be hooked.

When Love St contacted us wanting to launch their latest collection 'Wish You Were Here' at TVM, we were all over it. This banging brand is one of the longest standing at TVM - in fact the lovely Tara was peddling her wares at our first ever TVM back in 2008.

The ladies (and little boho bebe Birdie) strolled TVM pumping 70's tunes, rocking vintage shades and bright floral prints in true Love St style. Check out these snaps by Santography (another TVM fave).

Find Love St at the next TVM, Sunday 1 July 2018 (and most other TVM events).

We're all a little crazy for the coco! So we were excited when Cat Wyman swung us an application to join the TVM lineup with her brand Bowl de Coco. We chatted to Cat about her journey from hairstylist to the stars (hello Kate Moss!) in the big smoke of London-town, to coconut bowl entrepreneur on the sunny shores of the Gold Coast.

Tell us about your background, what field did you work in prior to starting your business?

I was a hairstylist living a busy life in London travelling every week doing hair for people such as Kate Moss and doing Campaigns for brands such as Calvin Klein. It was a crazy busy life.

What made your pursue your creative passion?

I didn't want to do school anymore so at age 15 I had the choice of an apprenticeship or staying in school so I chose an apprenticeship in hairdressing.

When did you take the plunge and start your own business?

I decided I didn't want a crazy busy London life anymore last September, so at the end of December I moved back to Australia and set up the business at the beginning of the year. I didn't anticipate it doing well, it was more of a project I suppose... and it ended up being a hit.

What does your brand consist of?

My brand is currently just Coconut Bowls however we are currently in the process of expanding to be more of an 'Eco-Friendly store' Soon you will be able to get spoons and also even more Eco-friendly bits that everyone should have in their Eco-friendly kitchen.

Where is the label designed and made?

I work closely with a beautiful woman named Mai and we work together picking what the store should have and engraving my logo onto each piece, she is based in Thailand and I am here in Brisbane.

What inspires you?

The beauty of the world inspires me to try and influence others to keep the earth and oceans as plastic free as possible.

What are your plans for the brand and where do you hope it takes you?

The sky is the limit with the brand, I hope we evolve into being a really big Eco-Friendly store and supply to all the cafes and retail stores around the world. We have just launched world wide shipping and already we are flooded with orders so I think there is no limit to where this business will end up.. I am just hoping to make a change and influence people to be more waste conscious and have more Eco-friendly and sustainable items in their lives.

What were the biggest challenges when launching your brand?

The biggest challenge is trying to create change in the communities, to try and stop cafes using plastic bowls and have coconut bowls instead, however most people are becoming more aware of the waste we create and are wanting to make a change.

What is the best thing about having your own business?

I can work anywhere...I get to go to the beach almost when ever I want. That was a huge highlight of the summer after living 4 years in London all I wanted to do was be at the beach.

One piece of advice for someone hoping to start their own small business that you wish you’d been told?

The GC is cooling down and lucky for you, you can catch new stall EST 1971 at TVM this Sunday, peddling their Windy's.
What's a Windy you say? Read on to find out more about EST 1971 co-founder Jayne who alongside her business partner and bestfriend Sophie, will be bringing her brand all the way from the Mornington Peninsula to join us at TVM for the very first time this Sunday 6th May.
In a short paragraph, tell us about your background — what did you study or what field did you work in prior to starting your business?
Jayne: After completing an Economics Commerce Degree I found my way into  Advertising, which I have been doing for the past 20 years. I have worked both here and overseas in a variety of roles. Some of my major clients were fashion brands which helped fuel my desire to one day start my own label.
What made your pursue your creative passion?
I grew up with a very creative mother who had my sister and I on the sewing machine making dolls dresses from a very young age. If we weren't sewing, we were embarking on some other creative pursuit from pottery to jewellery making. My mother passed away from Ovarian Cancer when she was only 56 and I was 34 years old. There’s nothing like losing your mother at a relatively young age to make you realise life is too short not live your passions.
When did you take the plunge and start your own business?
It took another ten years and the birth of my two children, Maggie and Sammy, for me to finally start my own label with one of my oldest and dearest friend’s Sophie. We have known each other since we were 12 and can pretty much guess what the other thinking.
What does your brand consist of?
Style essentials. We want to create pieces that can be worn and worn and you always feel good in them. We have launched with the much loved ‘windy’ (sweatshirts). We agonise over every detail and won’t put anything out there unless we absolutely love it and don’t want to take it off.
Where is the label designed and made?
The label is designed here in sunny (ok mostly rainy) Main Ridge on the Mornington Peninsula.
What inspires you?
Travel, where I live, nature, art, vintage fashion. I adore colour and texture and find inspiration everywhere from a painted door to a piece of ribbon.
What are your plans for the brand and where do you hope it takes you?
As long as people keep buying certain pieces we will keep making them and will add new pieces as we perfect them. We want to keep our brand purposeful and true to our essence - everyday style essentials that you can wear and wear.
What were the biggest challenges when launching your brand?
Believing in myself. I think you have to just decide to give it a go and do it. My mother used to say to me all the time “The only difference between you and them is they are doing it”.
What is the best thing about having your own business?
The ability to make and back your decisions — good and bad.
One piece of advice for someone hoping to start their own small business that you wish you’d been told?
You can waist so much time and energy doubting your idea or capabilities but not everything has to be solved in a day. Just get started, focus on what you are passionate about and everything else you can figure out along the way.

"I wanted to create a swimwear brand that supports the real images of women along with an added self reminder to love yourself and be you". Read on to find out more about founder of Born Bair Swimwear, Nicky Bell and find her and her gorgeous women's swimwear this Sunday 6th May at TVM.

In a short paragraph, tell us about your background – what did you study or what field did you work in prior to starting your business?

I studied a dual degree at UQ; Business Management and Event Management

What made your pursue your creative passion?

Currently being a blogger on Instagram I felt a need for more of a positive body image especially for younger women. Self-love and confidence really lacked and with the use of social media there can be a wrong impression left with who and what we are supposed to look like. A lot of women conform to unrealistic expectations and that why I wanted to create a swimwear brand that supports the real image of women along with the added self reminder to love yourself and be you.

When did you take the plunge and start your own business?

I took the plunge last year in March and started planning my business model and line.

What does your brand consist of?

My brand at the moment consists of a small collection of simple designs that accentuate the real you. All of my swimwear fit very comfortably and are made of fabrics that are soft and wearable.

Where is the label designed and made?

The label is designed here in Brisbane and is made overseas.

What inspires you?

I am inspired everyday by my friends and family – but most of all, my partner who lost his mother recently from MND. His passion and courage to finish an Ironman to raise money for MND encouraged to think that anything is possible if you have the passion and determination.

What are your plans for the brand and where do you hope it takes you?

Currently, I am in the process of having my second collection made and will be launching it at the end of August/early September. I would love to be a regular TVM stall holder and even possibly look to try and get the brand into some local stores.

What were the biggest challenges when launching your brand?

The biggest challenges we’re actually doing rather than saying. I took inspiration from friends and family and also did a lot of market research to understand the current market. Finally seeing all of your hard work come together during the photoshoot was very rewarding for me – I love hearing and seeing women feel confident and comfortable in their swimwear. This gives me the most joy.

What is the best thing about having your own business?

I would have to say that it doesn’t feel like hard work when its for yourself. I could work 7 days a week morning and night and not complain for a second. It would be my dream to do this full time as this is where my passion lies.

One piece of advice for someone hoping to start their own small business that you wish you’d been told?

Just do it – you are only going to gain more knowledge and confidence by starting something you didn’t think was possible. If I had a dollar for every business idea that I said I would do, I would be rich! If you have the passion and drive you can make it happen.
