Some of Australia's most successful and well-known designers have used our platforms to launch and grow their business, including peony:
The Village Markets has been a catalyst for the success of numerous Australian designers, including some of the most renowned names in the industry.
Notably, Becky Morton launched her iconic swimwear label, peony swim, right here at TVM. Starting from her modest stall at our Burleigh Heads event, Becky's journey with peony swim has been nothing short of remarkable. As the Founder and Director of Peony, she has transformed her brand into a global sensation, with prestigious fashion retailers like NET-A-PORTER, Harrods, and Saks Fifth Avenue proudly stocking her creations.
The Village Markets continues to be a platform where talented entrepreneurs like Becky, along with other prominent brands such as Kivari, Sacred Bundle, Mr Consistent, Olas Supply Co, Business & Pleasure and Nine Lives Bazaar, can flourish and make their mark in the fashion and lifestyle industry.

It's a fantastic opportunity to make some extra cash while enjoying a fun-filled Sunday with your besties.

We welcome pre-loved, quality designer, and vintage items sourced from personal wardrobes only. Each seller is allotted one clothing rack with one rail (maximum length of 1.5 meters / no sharing), so remember to bring your own rack. To maintain a tidy and organized display, we kindly request no baskets, suitcases, tables, or items piled on the floor; everything should be neatly tucked under your rack.
Please note that TVM Rack Sales are specifically designed for personal wardrobe items and are not suitable for brand sample sales. If you wish to sell brand samples or other items, we recommend applying for a regular market stall.
