To market for the day..

Last Saturday Jode Designs did another market.. but this time it was during the day at Coolum Uniting Church.. It was a special market for me (Jodi) as I did it along side my mother and sister.. My mother runs her own furniture and accessories business called 'French-ala-Beach' ( which sells gorgeous french shabby chic restored furniture (like mother like daughter :)) and my sister runs a childrens clothing line called 'Incy Wincy' ( which sells cute original clothing that you cant get in the shops (very dangerous territory for someone with two kids :)).. It was a great morning full of laughs.. conversations.. oh and some selling too!!.. Here is some of the things we had for sale.. Enjoy..

More stock for MOSS Coolum..

If you have seen our previous post, Jode Designs is now stocking their furniture in MOSS Coolum.. It is a funky furniture shop which supports local businesses and has a great vintage retro charm.. It is seriously hard not to buy something everything I go in to see the lovely owners Lea and Helen!! We dropped another load of furniture off to the shop this week and here is a sneak peak of a couple of items.. Enjoy..

A little cleaning.. A little repair..

Every now and then we stumble across some antique furniture that only needs a little clean and repair before it can be re-sold.. I love this type of furniture finds as it means their authenticity has stood the test of time.. Here are some cool pieces we have found lately.. Enjoy.. 

A Twilight Market...

A Twilight Market.. In mid- November the team at Jode Designs did their first market stall.. The Noosa COC church put on a pre-christmas twilight market under the stars.. It was lovely being under the trees which were lit by sparkling fairy lights.. It was a great night surrounded by beautiful creations, friendly people and delicious food.. Looking forward to the next one!! Here is a glimpse of what was available from Jode Designs on the night.. Enjoy..

But I just couldn't keep this gem all to myself so Jode Designs is now selling Hessian Coffee Bag Bedheads.. They are a wooden base, dacron wrapped and come in all bed sizes.. They will be custom ordered and will take 2-4 weeks to produce..

We are home..

After a crazy start to the year.. Getting use to our family of four.. Putting an extension on our home.. Running two businesses.. and battling with sickness after sickness we took off for a three week, much needed break, to New Zealand.. Such a beauiful place, and if we could, we would of brought a bunch of furniture back to restore!! (Although we did bring home some great deer antlers!!)..

Now back home and back to reality.. The creative jucices are flowing and the paint brushes/sewing machines are getting a work out again.. So stay tuned for some exciting new stock..
