This month we are celebrating all things small business in support of the local creatives bringing you some of your favourite TVM brands this festive season.

First up, husband and wife duo Lou and Paul behind, Drift Trading Co.

I was at the local fish and chip shop in Currumbin last week and decided to pop down the laneway next door, straight off the beach with sandy feet and wet children (sorry guys!) to check out the humble workspace of Drift Trading Co, to see for myself where the candle making magic happens.

Lou and Paul welcomed me (and my two daughters who love to touch glassware and ask plenty of questions - again, sorry guys!) into their space with open arms. It was so lovely to view the gorgeous space they have created, filled with recycled timber, antique frames and a cute veggie patch.

You could just feel the love that goes into creating their beautiful candles and various other products.

Here we chat to Lou to find out more about their growing business and what it means to them to shop small, this festive season.

What made your pursue your creative passion?

I have always loved making and creating, from a very early age I was the kid crafting, designing, making things and playing ‘shop’.  I never really knew what I wanted to be when I grew up and just kinda ended up working in office jobs in the legal and then in the property development industry. 

Pursuing my creative passion came about when I realised that my days spent sitting in front of a desk were no longer fulfilling – I wasn’t able to be creative and I had this feeling that there was something else I was meant to be doing.  I wanted to wake up in the morning and jump out of bed excited and motivated about the day ahead.

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

I took the plunge after resigning from a corporate position in property development. I had no idea what I was going to do but I kinda always knew that I wanted to have my own business and to be creative.  Our family went on a little camping road trip shortly after I resigned and it was travelling on the open road in our van when the idea to start Drift came about.

Originally Drift started out primarily to promote my hubby Paul's recycled timber furniture business and the candles were just a sideline – something else to offer our customers. Hubby and I both have a love of style and design and we wanted both the furniture and candles to reflect our sense of style – earthy, natural and paired back.  

What does your brand consist of?

100% hand poured, handmade scented soy candles, reed diffusers, soy melts and room sprays.  Our scents have been carefully curated to enhance a wide range of moods, moments and settings – from everyday home life, to the office, weekend gatherings, sunset drinks and everything in between.  We love the ambience and atmosphere a beautiful, scented candle can create – the soft flickering light combined with an intoxicating scent – enhancing moments and creating memories.

Where is the label designed and made?

The label was actually designed by us.  We wanted a natural, paired back design that would complement a wide range of style aesthetics.  We didn’t want any colour or loud design features – the brief was for the label to have a natural, earthy feel – we wanted it to blend seamless into any home décor and to complement other style elements whether it be flowers, indoor plants, artwork, furniture, bedroom or bathroom.

What inspires you?

So many things inspire us… we are lucky enough to live in a truly beautiful part of the world – the incredible lifestyle here on the Gold Coast is a huge inspiration for us.  Our Summer Blends collection (including ‘Coconut & Tahitian Lime’, ‘The Beach House’ and ‘Thai Lime & Mango’) is inspired by long days at the beach, outdoor gatherings and sunset drinks – blends designed to evoke an endless Summer.  Our earthy blends collection is for nature lovers – ‘The Hinterland’ is one of our more popular blends and is inspired by the aromas of the Gold Coat hinterland – eucalyptus, wattle, lemon myrtle and pine.

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

First and fore most Drift candles are about quality – this was always number one on our priority list, we’re a boutique hand poured candle company with a focus on producing a quality product. Hand made takes time - we are not about mass production and we have no massive plans for upscaling – we want to continue to produce a quality, handmade product that our customers fall in love with – quality over quantity every time!  We usually release a new blend each season which takes up a lot of time testing and blending as we’re super particular about our fragrance blends. We are actually working on a variation of our product range at the moment which we hope to release within the next month - just in time for Christmas gifting.

What were the biggest challenges when launching your brand?

Ah, where do I start… lol!  Becoming noticed was probably one of our biggest challenges – we wanted to stand out and for our brand to become known for its quality and natural, earthy style / design features. Building our online business was a little tricky - trying to describe a scent verbally and to sell something that relies heavily on the senses is quite a challenge.  Social media relies heavily on image so capturing the essence of Drift with lifestyle photography has been paramount for us – relaying the Drift lifestyle aesthetic/feel to our audience. Markets have been incredible for us – they’re a great way to get your product directly in the marketplace. Customers can physically pick up our product, touch and smell plus they get to ‘meet the makers’ – the real people behind the brand.

Find Lou and Paul at TVM this Sunday 1 December (and every other TVM event, always!).

TVM Startup Stall :: Pass Around The Smile

This weeks TVM Startup Stall recipient is Cleo Massey of Pass Around the Smile, read more about her journey below and find her very first stall at TVM this Sunday…

This weeks TVM Startup Stall recipient is Cleo Massey of Pass Around the Smile, read more about her journey below and find her very first stall at TVM this Sunday 17 November.

As an actor in the film and TV industry, Cleo Massey had experienced negativity, cyber bullying and rejection. She craved guidance and an injection of positivity in her life and was unable to find it in the online or via social media.

In 2015, she started a blog called Pass Around the Smile - to literally do just that!

Almost 5 years later, the blog has had 35,000 reads and has expanded into events and courses on the Gold Coast.

In January this year, Cleo decided that after years of using 'angel cards,' for guidance and positivity, she would design her own deck.

Ten months later and this dream has become a reality, introducing - Pass Around the Smile's, Positive Guidance Cards! These cards are hand drawn by local artist, Samantha Smith, and written by Cleo Massey.

What an incredible and uplifting story of turning a negative into a positive, congratulations! Tell us about your beautiful new cards, Cleo?

My goal when I started Pass Around the Smile was to inspire and encourage people to realise their full power and potential and this hasn't changed! Five years later, I'm trying to spread this message even further, with my cards and 12 new downloadable guided meditations on passaroundthesmile.com! I can't wait to have people feeling relaxed, guided, inspired and positive!

You’re an actress-turned entrepreneur, tell us about your creative journey?

I've been in actor in the Film and TV Industry since I landed my first big role on H20 Just Add Water.

I learnt so much being on set for four years and went on to study music and graduated with a Diploma. I felt so free with these creative outlets!

Acting, singing and playing guitar helped me feel positive and relaxed. For the last few years, I lived between LA and the Gold Coast, I studied at Groundlings and graduated their Improv course and began writing for Film and TV.

How do you juggle acting with your business?

I have a few side hustles! I get gigs every now and then on different TV and Film productions as an actor.

I'm currently co-writing my Mum's series, Stage Mums, which has been picked up by Network Ten and I work as an actor for the medical students at Griffith and Bond University!

I also do regular social media work as well as running Pass Around the Smile and everything that comes with it! What is sleep anyway?!

We all know coming up with a business name is a tricky task, how did you decide on Pass Around The Smile?

I sat for hours typing names into Google and all of them were already taken! I then thought, let's keep it simple? What do I want to spread? Smiles! Then it came to me - pass them around, Pass Around the Smile.

Tell us about the products offered?

My Positive Guidance Card Deck, this includes a beautiful hand drawn box, 42 different hand drawn cards and a guide booklet. These are written by myself, and illustrated by local artist, Samantha Smith.

At TVM I will be giving out readings, which is something I absolutely love doing!

On my website I sell four different meditation albums with 3 different meditations on each! Each meditation is written and guided by myself, over calming music and sounds.

I will also be offering prints of a few of my favourite cards!

What inspires you creatively?

People who do what they love, because they love it! Seeing people happy inspires me to work hard and get creative. Also being by the ocean inspires me.

Do you collaborate with any other local Gold Coast businesses?

I love to support local businesses. I held my first two events at Drift Trading Co, and have previously collaborated with The Luxe Social, Bloom Jar, KX Pilates, Limber Therapies and Hand Coffee.

Why did you choose TVM as a platform for your business?

I absolutely love the vibe at TVM. It's friendly, fun and energetic! I think the crowd will really resonate with my products.

Where’s your favourite local coffee haunt?

HAND Coffee at Broadbeach for sure!

Favourite book?

Super Attractor or the Secret!

Favourite podcasts?

Oprah's Soul Sessions

Favourite way to unwind?

Walks on the beach and meditation!

TVM Startup Stall :: Emma & Vincent

Meet our TVM Startup Stall recipient for this week – classical musician and teacher turned entrepreneur, Emma Di Marco of Emma & Vincent. Congrats on receiving the TVM Startup Stall,…

Meet our TVM Startup Stall recipient for this week - classical musician and teacher turned entrepreneur, Emma Di Marco of Emma & Vincent.

Congrats on receiving the TVM Startup Stall, we're looking forward to having you join us for the first time this Sunday, what can customers expect to find at your stall for your debut?

Thank you so much! My first product range for Emma & Vincent has focused primarily on helping people be more productive and work more efficiently towards their goals. Customers can expect to find our range of uniquely-designed Planners and Diaries. We have the classic 2020 Diary (can you believe it's almost a new year, again?) but also some very different undated planners that people haven't seen before. Think planning pages that focus more on what you can "do" in a day rather than just listing when you have items in your schedule. For us, a Planner should be about managing and tracking your time and staying accountable to yourself. Why? Because that's how you hit the big, long-term goals!

We have two different colour designs - Pastel Mix and Animal Print - and it's always really interesting to see which is more popular. Pastel Mix has definitely been the favourite lately but, you never know!

You're a classical musician and teacher by trade, tell us a little bit about how your creative business Emma & Vincent came about?

The idea for my business had been rumbling around in my head for a long time. My grandfather, Vincent, was a businessman when he immigrated to Australia after WWII and had such a strong community focus in both business and life. He was a massive influence for me and it was through him that I knew I one day wanted to help people through business too. I've always been encouraged to follow my own talents (which lead me to classical music) and reminded regularly by my family that we each have our own unique gifts through which we can help people.
My experiences in classical music and being an educator made me aware that so many people have big goals and dreams for themselves but are leaving these on the back burner because of the daily grind. As someone who has had a 5-year-plan for my life since I was 18, this seemed like so many missed opportunities and life paths! I truly believe that we continually grow into the best versions of ourselves day by day on the road to our goals. So, I got an Adobe subscription and I started designing a planner that would help you set goals and be accountable to yourself on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis. This is how I created our Action Planner. From there, my passion was ignited and I knew I could create a range of diaries and planners that could help people. Once the first range launched in September, I realised how much more the business could grow and I've been working away behind the scenes on some new things for 2020 - stay tuned!

What is your number one tip in staying organised, for other creative entrepreneurs?

Writing things down! It sounds so simple but it is so easy to overlook. Having everything you need written down in one place makes a huge difference to how you are able to use your time more effectively. We work on our phones, our laptops, our diary, different apps, services like Dropbox and Google Drive. It becomes impossible to marry everything up and manage your time when you're moving across different platforms like that. If you've always got one central portal where you copy everything down, you can't waste time.
For me, I use an Emma & Vincent Everyday Planner and, no matter what, I take time every day to copy down important emails, notes, and ideas into the Planner. This means when I get a spare half hour during the day, I can open it up and find a task to complete in that time with no hassles.

Why did you choose TVM as a platform for your new business?

TVM has a wonderful feel around promoting and supporting local small businesses. I think that these markets understand that people are choosing to buy local and "slow" more and more often and are bringing together makers, creators, and entrepreneurs that each have their own unique vision. There's something really special about wandering a market and selecting beautifully made pieces that you know won't be found in the big stores. And with Christmas time coming, a marketplace like TVM is the perfect spot to go gift shopping. I just knew this would be the place I would meet like-minded business owners.
 
What are your fave:
Podcasts?
No Such Thing As a Fish, for sure! I can't stop laughing and I'm always sharing the facts and tidbits I learn.
Reads?
I'm actually trying to read 100 new books before my 30th birthday in 2020 so I've been through a lot lately. An all time favourite is '1984' but a new discovery that I enjoyed is 'The Institute' by Stephen King
Shows?
I'm a huge fan of 'The Good Place'! Any show that mixes Kristen Bell with moral philosophy was always going to be a hit with me.
Local eatery on the Gold Coast?
My absolute favourite spot to eat on the Coast is Cardamom Pod at Broadbeach. As a vegetarian, it is the perfect easy spot for lunch and is fresh and delicious.
TVM Stalls?
I've got my eye on some pieces from Golden Sunrise Activewear.

New to TVM this Sunday is Flow, art works by Abbey Butterfield.

I discovered flow art a few years ago and loved it instantly. I bought my first supplies, which sat, unused for almost two years, there was excuse after excuse as to why I couldn't do it. I have never characterised myself as a creative person, until now and struggled to work up enough courage to take the plunge.

When I finally did, it became my outlet and opportunity to do something I love doing. As a stay-at-home mum to two little boys, painting at night is my favourite 'me time' activity. After selling art to family members, I decided to start my own little business.

Have you always had a creative background?

Since having children, I have discovered I love being creative. I make and decorate cakes for special occasions for friends and family and I have always loved photography since I was a young teen.

Tell us about the name Flow, how did this come about?

Flow reflects the fluid nature of the medium I work with and how it moves on the canvas.

What products are included within your range?

I have ready made pieces of art available as well as being able to create commission pieces to suit the needs of the customer.

What inspires you creatively?

I am inspired by creating colour combinations to suit customers home. I love creating interesting, conversation pieces.

Why did you choose TVM as a platform for your business?

Having seen the quality of other local markets, TVM stands out. The customers appreciate handmade, one of a kind items.

Where’s your favourite local coffee haunt on the GC?

Like many small businesses, Little Knot Studio was born when founder Rachael Coonan couldn't quite find the product she was looking for in the market place. The Toowoomba based Assistant Manager in the plumbing industry used creativity passed down from her late mother to try her hand at creating her own macrame wedding arbor and the rest, as they say, is history.

"My love of Macramé started in 2018 when I was planning our wedding and wanted something that would stand out, for our arbor, I started looking into macramé hangings to put on a timber arbor but couldn’t find the exact style I was looking for, so I decided to try my hand at making one. It was a bit of a challenge tackling such a huge piece straight up but I ended up making a Macramé arbor that was almost 3m long and absolutely fell in love with the craft! I have been making macramé since then."


Do you have a creative background?

My mum was always into arts and crafts when I was young so a lot of my memories as a child were doing craft with her. She passed away when I was young, I didn’t have a lot to do with arts and crafts after that, Since picking up macramé I fell as though I’m defiantly channeling that creative flair from Mum again. My dad has also told me he did a stint of making macramé plant hangers when he spent some time in hospital to pass time so maybe I got it from him also.

Is this a side hustle or are you pursuing Little Knot Studio on a full-time basis?

Macramé is my side hustle at the moment, I work a full time job as assistant manager in plumbing supplies.

What products are included within your range?

I make all things macrame - macramé wall hangings, bags, earrings, key rings, arbors, buntings, owls & table runners, just to list a few. My greatest loves are the large wall hangings. I also love making custom orders, as I love making new designs.

What inspires you creatively?

My mother has inspired my step-mother, she is extremely creative, she has also helped me with the sewing side of things when I make linings on my bags.

Also the amazing things which can be done with macramé, I love seeing what new creations everyone comes up with.

What's your creative space like?

I create from home. I have a set up in my lounge room but I also love to set up my station outside when it’s not too windy.

Do you implement any sustainable practices within your business, if so tell us about this?

I live on a property so my natural timber dowels are sourced from around the farm.

Why did you choose TVM as a platform for your business?

I don’t live on the Coast but I have heard great things about TVM. I wanted to grow my following and experience the coastal markets.

Favourite way to unwind?

Making macramé of course. And spending time with my fur babies.

Websites or accounts you’re loving for business inspiration right now?

I am inspired by Jamie from JAC Home Heart and her growing business, this is where I get my natural cotton cord. I also love that she encourages other makers and brings everyone together.

This week we chat to entrepreneurial siblings Bianca and Tristan, founders of kids t-shirt brand Little Palma and recipients of this weeks TVM Start-up Stall.

"My brother Tristan and I were the sole designers of our clothing label Lucid that went on to wholesale across Australia. Over 7 years we owned and operated two fashion retail stores in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley and James Street precincts, called Lucid Laundry. Continuing on from this venture we dabbled in hospitality by owning a dumpling bar called Brunswick Social, but are now back to doing what we love."

Tell us about your creative background?

The clothing industry is something both my brother and I are very familiar with given we were born into a family of rag traders. We’ve worked closely with our parents and they have taught us a lot about the industry - they constantly inspire us on many different levels!

Is this business your sole income or you do have a full-time gig?

I am currently mixing Little Palma with Mama Life!

Tell us about your brand name, how did this come about?

We love all things beachy (including palm trees and ocean sparkles), and preserving the environment for the “little” ones – with a strong focus on being kind not only to the people but to the planet. Also “palma” means palm in Spanish, and colourful Spain/Africa is also a great source of inspiration.

Being a mother to little ones and then moving to the beach 12 months ago is how Little Palma came about.

What products or services are included within your range?

We have an amazing range of our own kid’s tees that we have collaborated on with our friend and Sydney artist - Daimon Downey. We also have a beautiful collection of African treasures including bolga hats, sisal baskets, kiondos , and handmade wooden animals. We’re also about to launch our adults tees which is very exciting!

What inspires you creatively?

Everything from travelling, colours, my children and this beautiful part of the world we live in, especially the southern beaches of the GC!

Do you implement any sustainable practices within your company, if so tell us about this?

We use Better Packaging, which is compostable because it’s bio-degradable packing. Our African treasures are also made from recycled and natural products.

Do you collaborate with any other local GC/Brisbane businesses?

Not at this stage but we have a few exciting collabs coming up with some local artisans, and we will continue to work with Daimon Downey through this summer.

Why did you choose TVM as a platform for your business?

We have always been a fan of TVM and watched it grow and evolve over the years – as we live locally we see TVM as the perfect fit for Little Palma!

Where’s your favourite local GC coffee haunt?

Barefoot Barista in Palm Beach.

Favourite book?

Too many to list...

Favourite way to unwind?

Lazy days at the beach finished off with pizza and red wine always!

What’s your favourite TVM stall, if you have one?

Loving Spencer Ceramics right now!

Find Little Palma at TVM this Sunday 20 October and check them out online, here.

After having her second son and becoming extremely sensitive to synthetic fragrance. Shae Turnor decided to ditch the chemicals and reduce her families plastic waste, by making her own natural products for the home.

This quickly expanded into creating products for family and friends and incidentally, the contract she was filling in for at work was coming to end.

Shae decided to take a leap of faith and hope that others out there would share her vision and love her products too.

Meet Shae Turnor, founder of Crawford & Co Handmade.

Did you have any previous experience in the industry, or business itself?

Creatively, my background is photography and professionally, it was a Travel Agent.

Is this business your sole income or is it a side project?

This is my sole income.

Tell us about your brand name, how did this come about?

Crawford and Co Handmade came from wanting to incorporate my family into my business name. They are my main driver for doing this. To give us the freedom and flexibility to work from anywhere. My partner and our sons surname is Crawford. I am the " and Co" as we are not married yet. It’s a little tongue in cheek.

What products or services are included within your range?

We make a range of Aromatherapy Candles. Pure essential oils set in a natural soy wax. However, our main product range consists of Natural Soap bars, these are all plant based, with no nasties. We have Soap Bars and the extra large Kitchen Block; the eco alternative to commercial dish washing liquid.

We are also about to release a new range of both soaps and candles called Little Travellers. Designed for keeping in your campervan or taking on weekends away.

What inspires you creatively?

Nature, the elements, the smells, sounds and colours of being by the beach or in the bush and music also helps to amplify that.

Do you work from home, an office or creative workspace?

I work from home.

Do you implement any sustainable practices within your company, if so tell us about this?

Yes absolutely. We pride ourselves on our sustainability and commitment to the environment. Our soap bars are completely zero waste. Our candles all come in reusable jars and tins. We strongly encourage our clients to re use their jars.

As they come with an air tight seal, we use ours for food storage ( once cleaned out properly). All of our packaging is recycled or home compostable. Our labels are the only things that are not, and we are aiming to have home compostable labels by the end of the year.

Do you collaborate with any other local GC/Brisbane businesses?

Not at this stage, but I would love to.

Why did you choose TVM as a platform for your business?

TVM has a great reputation, everyone knows and loves it. I felt like it was a great fit for my products.

Where’s your favourite local coffee haunt?

Valeria Solo, founder and designer of VSolochildren, has a multicultural approach to design. She’s an Indian-born Australian mom who lived in Shanghai, India, Singapore, US and now Australia. Her tailoring is inspired by classic European children’s wear, but she gives it a playful, Asian-inspired twist. The difference is in the details. As a mom, Valeria understands what many parents and kids are looking for: clothes that are timeless but playful. Stylish but comfortable. Fine fabrics at affordable prices.

VSolochildren was born when Valeria was scouring the children’s shops and realized how hard it is to find clothes that are original, reasonably priced and crafted with care. Since that’s the winning combination every parent is looking for, Valeria wondered why it was so hard to find. That’s when she resolved to launch her own clothing design studio for children ages 1-14.

VSolochildren designs are affordable, and that’s part of the brands mission. Valeria spent almost three years visiting suppliers throughout Asia to find the finest fabrics at the best prices. Because as much as everyone wants adorable outfits for their little ones, they outgrow them just as quickly.

What is your creative background/qualifications?

I do not have a technical/professional creative background, I hold and MBA, Master of Business Administration, UTS, University of Technology, (Sydney 2015), my past experiences were in the fields of Finance/Accounting. I have always been a big fan of timeless, practical, well-made, affordable and playful clothing pieces. These are my key drivers to pursuing my passion in creating unique children's clothing pieces.

Is the business your sole income, or do you juggle multiple jobs whilst starting out?

We just moved back to Australia, at this stage, this business is my only occupation.

Tell us about your brand name, how did this come about?

VSolochildren - My initial and family name.

People often guess my country of birth incorrectly, I was born in a tiny state in the north east part of India called Mizoram. The brand name represents the truly wonderful birth place that reflects our unique pieces.

What products or services are included within your range?

Clothing for Children 1-14yr and in the process of getting shoes/sandals range too.

What inspires you creatively?

Timelessness, affordability, uniqueness, originality and most importantly practicality for everyday/ occasion wear.

Do you work from home, an office or creative workspace?

Yes, home.

Do you implement any sustainable practices within your company, if so tell us about this?

Keeping in mind the sensitive nature of children's skin, we are very selective about the quality of fabrics used and the processes involved in crafting our pieces. Our high-quality cottons, linens, cashmeres are soft and easy to wear. We vastly use hand painted/vegetable dyes for our prints. All our pieces are made with fine and natural fabrics like linen, cotton, silk and cashmere. Our aim is to continually meet our niche market's demand and want rather than focusing on big picture and also to continually get feedback from our customers how our timeless yet playful, superior quality yet affordable, comfortable yet chic pieces last younger siblings and how unique they feel in it.

In 2018 when Liza Michelle, a mother of three, took a trip to the supermarket with her young daughter in search of an appropriate women’s razor, she soon realised there was no such thing on the market.

As a passionate vegan and environmental advocate, the idea of purchasing a plastic, disposable razor for her young daughter just didn’t cut the mustard. The shaving creams on offer were not much better, filled with chemicals she struggled to pronounce and then there were the cosmetic bags, yet again, more synthetic fabrics.

After a discussion with her daughter about what she may want and need to commence her shaving experience, that would both benefit the environment and also be accessible for all women of any age – Tres Chic Shave Kit was born.

Meet Liza Michelle, mother of three and founder of Tres Chic Shave Kit – who will be joining us for the first time this Sunday 30 June at TVM Stones Corner.

When was it that you took the plunge and started your own business?

I did an online e-commerce course last October (2018) and it was Christmas last year, when I came up with my idea for the business.

I've been sourcing my fabric, designing and manufacturing my product since then.

What does your brand consist of?

My brand consists of, Eco-Audrey! She is our first Shave Kit.

It is a biodegradable, washable, cotton lined metal zipper vegan-friendly Kraft fabric cosmetic bag. It can be used as a shaving kit, makeup kit, clutch bag and pencil case. You name it!

A 3-blade Bamboo razor with a removal head for refills and vegan, homemade, coconut, Shea butter shave cream.

We use Hero Packaging (Australian owned) satchels for mailing, which are biodegradable.

Where is the label designed and made?

I make the shaving cream at home, using Australian natural products (Shea butter, coconut, oils, etc).

I buy my labels and jars in Australia, as I'm trying to use as many Australian businesses' as I can.

The biodegradable Kraft fabric comes from Germany and made in China along with the bamboo razors.

What inspires you?

Animal welfare and our environment. My heart breaks when I see what human beings are doing to such beautiful animals and our planet.

There are so many alternatives around, yet due to the cost of living, the big chain shops cut cost and make it so cheap that it's easy to buy any product these days, without really thinking about what it is that you're buying.

I do believe people want to make ethical choices yet it's not easy to find and they can be expensive.

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

I hope that my brand resonates with women and that they will tell their friends all about it. I'm keeping costs as low as I can, as I would like my product to be in the home of as many women and young women, as possible.

I'd like to launch my product worldwide via my online store - shipping is so expensive, I hope I will be able to use a logistic company overseas to help with that major problem - I'm not there yet.

I'd like it to expand. I wish to work with some local Brisbane artists (I have someone in mind!) to create a new cosmetic kit every couple of months. I love the Kraft Fabric. It feels like leather but of course, it is not.

What were the biggest challenges when launching your brand?

Money is always the biggest challenge. I can build websites and do graphics, so that was the fun part. The hard part is brand awareness and driving traffic to my site so people are aware I exist and buy the product.

What is the best thing about having your own business?

The best thing is being able to be at home and available for my children. I do work hard and sometimes forget to stop and eat.

I also get to walk my poodle after school drop off and not needing to rush to get to work is a blessing. My stress level has been lowered.

We love nothing more than welcoming new homegrown businesses into our community. Allow us to introduce Ben and Nicole Braithwaite and their business, Anvil + Essence.

Anvil + Essence was created In Burleigh Heads, Australia by husband and wife team Ben and Nicole Braithwaite. A shared passion by two different backgrounds, merged to bring a unique, modern perspective on traditional health and well-being.

Nicole and Ben

A compassionate Naturopathy student with a creative flair, Nicole began regularly crafting tea blends for her then fiancé Ben to support his mental clarity, stamina and recovery while working labor intensive shift work as a commercial Refrigeration Mechanic.

The beginning of an idea formed during that time as the benefits became a way of life. What started as studied relief, naturally formed into an exciting opportunity to bring the same level of care and support to others.

A new concept was formed to celebrate the ongoing study, skill and experience in the creation of innovative health, well-being and lifestyle products.

The duo say their passion comes to life by ensuring they provide an exceptional level of service, craftmanship and quality organic, cruelty free and sustainable products, with their clients highest well-being and satisfaction in mind.

They believe in satisfaction, sustainability and a great tasting cup of tea. Which is why they have created their hand blended teas that are designed for both taste and wellbeing. They only use 100% organic botanical ingredients throughout their product range. That means a well-rounded, vibrant taste with no nasty chemicals, additives or pesticides.

Every single ingredient and blended tea has been thoughtfully crafted to enhance and assist in the body’s healthy function. Chosen from a variety of ethically sourced Australian based suppliers, then carefully packaged within their sleek, modern violet MIRON glass containers.                

Growing health, wellbeing and sustainability awareness, means people are more interested in enjoying organic products that provide a better taste with more benefits.

"When Nicole and I started Anvil + Essence, we always maintained that we would use the highest quality in every aspect of our journey to provide a modern-day solution to traditional, organic tea. Each product is delicately hand blended under our strict level of quality control, ensuring each product is beautiful in taste and appearance," says Ben.

"We love making tea and we plan on making them for a long time to come, which means we are here to provide long term sustainable solutions with a great quality product."

Congratulations to Ben and Nicole, who have launched their organic tea and wellness space online today. Head on over to take advantage of their generous launch discount!

This one is for the sweet toothed folk amongst us who appreciate organic, 'no nasties' ingredients - with cute packaging to boot. If you haven't yet experienced Dolce Organico then head to TVM this Sunday 2 June.

Dolce Organico was founded by Nutritionist and food enthusiast, Dianne Doyle in 2017.

Dianne has a passion for creating food that is wholesome and inclusive for all dietary types. She found that finding 'guilt-free' treats that were allergy friendly and not full of 'nasties' was really hard for her clients so she decided to try some recipes out herself.

After trialing many different recipes Dianne perfected her Plant-Based Meringues, her clients loved them. Her organic vegan meringues are free from gluten, lactose, egg, animal products, nuts and fat. Dianne's meringues are designed to be a guilt-free treat and only have 1 teaspoon of raw organic sugar per serve of 3 meringues.

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

As a nutritionist, I wasn't sure about starting another brand but my clients (and family, friends, neighbours and pretty much everyone I knew) kept raving about my meringues. So in November 2017, I finally made the plunge and launched Dolce Organico!

What does your brand consist of?

Dolce Organico has 5 core flavours; vanilla, hazelnut, coffee, bubblegum and raspberry, that come in two sizes (large & small), currently there are 2 'special flavours', Pink Champagne and Bake-A-Wish Unicorn.

All of the ingredients in our meringues are cruelty-free and sourced naturally. Our meringues contain no artificial colours + our colourings are sourced from organic superfoods such as; Blue Spirulina, Pink Pitaya, Black Goji Berry and Cacao.

Where possible our flavourings are naturally derived from their original source.

It's important to us that each ingredient is ethically sourced.

Where is the label designed and made?

Dolce Organico is a Gold Coast business that's worked hard to try and source it's ingredients and packaging locally. All of our products are made and packaged on the Gold Coast.

What inspires you?

I draw inspiration from foodies such as Jamie Oliver, Sarah Wilson & Lola Berry. Each of these amazing foodies are trying to change the way we look at eating healthy, real food and make cooking (and eating right) 'sexy' again.

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

I would really love Dolce Organico to become a go-to food for people with and without allergies to make eating and sharing more inclusive for everyone.

I would also like to keep adding new flavours and, down the track, new products to the Dolce Organico line and eventually use the brand as a platform to help educate others on how eating real foods doesn't have to be boring.

What were the biggest challenges when launching your brand?

One of the biggest hurdles that I had to overcome is the perception that organic and vegan food is bland or tasteless and not as good as the 'real thing'.

Another challenge has been sourcing and learning more about sustainable packaging. And what the pros and cons (and true impact) of various preparing, shipping and packing methods actually are.

What is the best thing about having your own business?

One of the best things about running Dolce Organico, has been being able to meet and work with some of our favourite brands, such as a recent collab with Edible Beauty and Soulara.

Another amazing opportunity that's come from running a business, has been having the opportunity to make a real impact on things that matter. For example, I have recently teamed up with the Make a Wish foundation for her Bake-a-Wish Unicorn meringues ($1 of each jar sold gets donated), which has been really cool.

But the absolute best thing is having the ability to invent and create new flavours and 'play' in the kitchen!

Age is certainly no barrier when you are passionate and willing to take risks. In fact, there has never been a better time to go for it. Josie Cross is a great example of this. The 17 year old entrepreneur is a fifth generation Gold Coaster and co-founder of newly launched swimwear label 88 Fahrenheit, which will be part of the line-up this Sunday 17 February at TVM.

Today we chat to Josie about motivation, creating a brand that reflects your beliefs and the opportunities created by social media.

“Born and raised on Australia’s Gold Coast, with a family history dating back 5 generations of local Gold Coasters, I have a definite obsession with the beach. Intertwining my love for the sun, sand and sea with my passion for fashion and travel, in my senior years of highschool, at just 17, I decided it was time to live out my dreams and create a lifestyle label that incorporates all of my favourite things. With my mum and co-founder by my side together we ensure that 88 Fahrenheit offers only the highest quality fabrics manufactured ethically and with love in one of our favourite places to travel - the beautiful island of Bali in Indonesia.”

What made you pursue your creative passion?

I’ve certainly had an obsession with bikinis from a very young age and have always had a very creative mind. As I got older I started messing around with designs and discovered the concept of working for myself. Alongside my passion for acting I had my dad telling me “I would never make any money as an actor’, so I decided it was time to prove him wrong and become my own boss – and that’s where it all started.

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

During my senior years of high school, I would come home after being at school all day and then acting classes at night and meet with my mum about what I needed to do to make this really happen. Together we developed my ideas and design concept to create a brand that reflected everything I believed would embody the perfect beach day.

What does your brand consist of?

Dreaming of a perfect beach day, 88Fahrenheit (or 31ºC) is exactly that - sun, surf, sand and salt. Inspired to create a brand that reflects the beauty of nature, 88Fahrenheit offers beautifully designed swimwear to beach lovers throughout the world. Create your perfect beach day and join our tribe to share your stories with us, as together we celebrate life!

Where is the label designed and made?

Our label is designed In Australia and made in the beautiful island of Bali, Indonesia.

What inspires you?

Being inspired by strong women who are willing to take risks creating the life they want, and the way that social media embraces young entrepreneurs and gives them opportunities that has never been afforded to young people before; I discovered there is no better time to take the leap of faith than now.

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

The idea of travel is one that I find immensely appealing, so I aspire to create a life where the brand will allow me to travel the world and share the story of 88Fahrenheit with other young entrepreneurs who are looking to create their own pathway. I plan on expanding the brand to include everything for the ‘perfect beach day’, not just swimwear. Every photoshoot we do, every time new stock arrives, or we are showcased at a fashion show or now a market, I feel as though I have gone on a new adventure and look forward to continuing that for the brand.

What were the biggest challenges when launching your brand?

Obviously as a high school student, being categorised as ‘just a 17-year-old girl’ has a stigma that encourages some people to overlook the potential of the brand – which was certainly something I had to work hard to overcome in the development phase. However, with my mum and co-founder, Michelle, by my side we worked extremely hard to create a professional, authentic brand that is ethical, mindful of environmental sustainability and we hope to encourage growth in young entrepreneurs and promote the amazing Gold Coast lifestyle.

What is the best thing about having your own business?

Without a doubt the best part of owning your own business would have to be working your own hours from anywhere in the world. A week before we launched 88Fahrenheit (on December 16, 2018) my family and I were on a trip to the US to celebrate my graduation, however, not for one second did 88 Fahrenheit stop. Whether it be in bed, by the ocean, on a plane, train or at my dining room table I can really work from anywhere in the world to create the brand of my dreams, which is something I am extremely grateful for.

We had the pleasure of hosting local photographer Tracey Moakes at TVM recently with her Christmas photobooth, where she was able to capture her signature natural candid shots of our community and their loved ones.

Tracey kindly returned in January to snap a typical TVM morning and we have shared some of her images below - we love them! Here we chat to Tracey to learn more about how she turned her hobby into a business and what we can expect from her in the future. Grab a cuppa and enjoy the read.

I grew up loving art and have always enjoyed creating, often crafting cards or wall hangings, or playing with a bit of paint. I studied black and white film photography during high school and totally loved it. After high school I studied graphic design where I started to learn my way around Photoshop.

Tell us about your journey into photography?

I bought my first DSLR camera when I was pregnant with my first child. A friend had shown me theirs and I was keen to learn more. After my son was born I had plenty to photograph.

Seeing how quick my own kids were growing, I knew it was important to capture every little moment I could. I wanted to do the same for other families.

When did you decide to create a business out of your creative passion?

It kind of happened accidentally, I started taking photos for friends, and friends of friends, mainly of babies and families. I decided to turn it into a business and I have never looked back. I've learnt so much along the way and I'm pretty proud of how far my work has come.

What style of photography do you focus on?

I currently shoot mostly newborns, maternity, and families. I want to document your life. I aim to capture real moments. I want real smiles and real interactions between you and your family. Capturing your everyday moments that one day you will look back on and go, "Oh remember when (your child) used to do that!" and you will wonder how you had ever forgot.

What inspires you?

Definitely my kids, watching the funny little things they do has me running for my camera every time. And beautiful light. A beautiful sun flare coming through a tree will always make me grab whatever camera is nearby, I've been known to use friend's phones if I don't have my own handy. I'll usually come back to that spot again with my kids and my DSLR.

What are your plans for your business in 2019 and beyond?

I would love to grow my business bigger, shoot some more weddings and possibly branch out into other types of photography. One day I hope to own a studio and also have printing capabilities to be able to offer prints to clients too. But I really just want to continue my documentary approach to family photography and help capture those precious memories for families.

What were the biggest challenges when starting your own business?

Learning about running a business and learning to respect it. Learning to say no to free shoots. Letting go of what a perfect photo should look like (many of my favourite shots have imperfections that I now love).

What is the best thing about having your own business?

Freedom! I book in sessions for when suits me and my family, and I can still be there to watch my kids get an award at school etc. Also creative freedom.

Former ironwoman-turned-swimwear graphic designer, Amy Nurthen and her younger sister Karlee, a professional Ironwomen and videographer created their label Loca Sportswear one year ago because they believed there was a gap in the sportwear market for fashion forward, active, fast-paced women who love street style. They wanted to let their ideas run wild and create something from the beginning. From designing styles to photography to branding and everything in between.

Talk us through the process you went through to create your business?

One year ago we decided it was time to start putting time aside to work on our dream. We had hundreds of sketches of different styles, t-shirt and textile prints across all our books. We bought the domain and business name and the past year has been the most challenging, rewarding and interesting year of our lives.

What does your brand consist of?

Loca is a movement empowering women to Be Rare. We have created bold, unique styles to allow women to make it their own. Style it, accessorise it, own it and be proud. Our first campaign consist of sports bras, shorts, tights, bags, sunglasses, hats & tees.

Where is the label designed and made?

Loca Sportswear is designed, tested and manufactured on the Gold Coast. Representing small Australian businesses and working close to our maker chain is a positive and unique aspect of our brand. From pattern making, fabric cutting, embroidery, screen print and sewing. We use regenerated fabric across all our crops & tights. By collecting discarded fishing nets from our oceans, we can make an essential contribution to the marine ecosystem helping reduce damage to the environment. Turning trash into treasure.

What inspires you?

When women connect to our brand and our message. Seeing women put on our styles for the first time and their eyes lighting up.

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

Our plan is to have a summer and winter range each year, full of new styles, colours and looks. To create exclusivity to particular retail stores who would benefit from Loca. To have women connecting with our message and empowering others to be proud of who they are.

What were the biggest challenges when launching your brand?

Having our stock completed in time for the launch was a challenge, we work with small businesses and our work load was quite big for our manufacturing team.

What is the best thing about having your own business?

Being able to be creative, run with ideas, there is no barriers, its really unknown.

New to TVM this Sunday 16 September is Kate Lardner and her homewares stall, The Miniature Treasury - a collection of beautiful pieces for the nursery, designed to be passed on for years to come.

TVM: How did your business come about?
KL: Before The Miniature Treasury, I studied Interior Design and worked for a designer/online furniture retailer. I learned a lot from my mentor who taught me all things to do with design, the world of online business and websites and importantly, how to be a business woman with kindness.

What made your pursue your creative passion?
I've always been creative but was terrible at painting and art! I never knew how to channel my creativity until I started studying Interior Design. It just flowed naturally and the passion for beautiful objects grew; constantly admiring and finding unique items. Throw in the mix of motherhood and the concept of furniture design flowed even more naturally.

What does your brand consist of?
The brand consists of cane baby change tables, clothing racks, baby mobile and child's chair. These pieces, especially the change tables, are designed to be heirlooms; pieces that have accumulated love stories of childhood, memories represented in a change table, so when they are passed down to the next gen and the next, all the memories that go with it will be remembered too.

Where is the label designed and made?
Everything is hand-drawn and designed by me here in Burleigh Heads, then are made by local families in a community just outside of Java, Indonesia.

What inspires you?
Love inspires me! To pass down the memories of love, to be the owner of a piece that tells stories of people past, of FAMILY past... it brings us all closer and instills the importance to treasure these heirlooms that actually mean something.

Things that have a story are dear to my heart. If you can point at something in your home and tell a story of where it's been and what it represents... that's pretty special.

What are your plans for the brand and where do you hope it takes you?
The Miniature Treasury will hopefully continue to grow and while our change tables will be our main focus, our range will also continue to grow. I hope that we speak to people's heart and designer eyes and our range will bless the nurseries of mums all over Australia.

What were the biggest challenges when launching your brand?
How to start! How to brand, how to speak consistently, how to get us known.

What is the best thing about having your own business?
Something to put passion into besides my family; something for me.

Kate and The Miniature Treasury will be at TVM on Sunday 16 September and you can connect with the brand online, here:

How To :: Merchandise Your Stall, with Kari from Night Tiger

There's a certain art to ensuring your stall looks inviting, well thought-out and importantly your products highlighted to maximise sales. We spoke with the master Kari, from Night Tiger and got the low down on Visual Merchandising for your market stall.

I first learnt about visual merchandising when I was working for a designer label called 'RICH'  in Melbourne. It was a large store on Brunswick street Fitzroy consisting of Australian made but Italian sourced fabrics with Men's and Women's clothing shoes and accessories.

My manger had been professionally trained and every Monday we would re-merch the store for a fresh look. She taught me everything she knew and I realised I loved the process. I worked there for about two years and then for a few other labels in Melbourne.

When I moved back up to the Byron Shire I worked with my dear friend Rowie, from Rowie the Label. I worked for her for about four years at the headquarters managing stock and online customer service, retail in her shops and sometimes doing markets. I worked in a lot of different roles at the label, one of them being a favourite, Merchandising her stores.

I created Night Tiger because I had always loved making my own clothes and dressing up (I also have a background in dance where I made a lot of costumes). After a while people wanted me to make clothes for them because they liked the garments I was wearing so I realised that I could make a small business out of it.  I did a course in Fashion Design and Technology and it kept growing from there.

My 5 tips for merchandising your market stall would be:

  1. I never over clutter my stall. Variety and options are good but simplicity is key, especially clothing racks, not having too many items on each rack so the customer can easily touch and see each item.
  2. Have an inviting space. Possibly something the customer can walk into and a centrepiece of some sort, maybe a table or rack in the middle is good for me. Occasionally I will hang macramé or hanging pants to compliment the clothes but not always. A little bit of extra decor is always nice though as customers don't like feeling to exposed in a bare open selling environment.
  3. For each rack in my stall, the clothing is hung in a complimentary colour scheme. I also hang things in a way so that the longer items and shorter items aren't bunched together and it all has a flow and balance on the rack. These factors are aesthetically pleasing to the human eye and unconsciously it draws customers in as there is an ease for them to look at it all. My racks and the way the clothing is presented is the main focus of my stall.
  4. Having some sort of Mat or floor is really good because it separates you from the path outside and psychologically 'slows' people down in your stall to stay a while and relax and have look.
  5. The stall should just have an over-all simple shop feel. I try to keep all equipment that is not necessary out of the stall i.e. marquee covers, rack ropes, trolleys.....anything that's not nice to look at. And my extra clothing boxes of stock I put under a table or cover with nice discreet throws out of the way.

Thanks so much Kari for this incredibly insightful info! You can find Night Tiger at most TVM events, including the next one on Sunday 5 August 2018.
