Tinitrader's Melbourne Pop Up Market was bursting with amazing product and people shopping for unique and beautiful products from Tinitrader's boutique sellers.
See what owner and creative director of Goosebumps, Inga Rodd & stylist, Katy Thomas, had to say about Tinitrader's Pop Up Market
What did love about Tinitrader Marketplace Pop up Market?
INGA: I’m always on the hunt for new and exciting products. I’m also starting to think like a stylist for my brand Goosebumps and am forever in search of quirky styling pieces I can in-corporate into our bedding campaigns. Plus, it’s always great to catch up with industry friends such as Sunday from Sunday Ganim Blankets, Sarah from Green Cathedral and listen to Aimee Tarulli do a talk on all things interiors.
KATY: I love little pop up events that showcase small businesses. I also wanted to take Cleo (my 3-year-old) for a fun little outing together. Add in coffee and treats and you have the perfect shopping experience for the family.
What is your individual style in your home? Do you favour a natural colour palette or love punchy, bright and bold colours and patterns?
INGA: We’ve purchased the renovators dream house which remains un- renovated – sigh. It’s a project that we’re continuously working on and will happen one of these days! So at the moment my style is minimalist with lashings of colour. I absolutely love art and recently purchased an original Clair Bremner piece which is a little treat.
KATY: I'm a huge fan of black and white interiors with subtle hints of grey and pink. Our home definitely reflects this colour palette and it works in so well with natural timbers.
What did you end up buying at Tinitrader's Pop Up Market?
INGA: I bought some gorgeous clothes for my twin boys from Love Struck The Label. They are these white tee’s that say "best friends" in a heart that is split between the two tee’s - they’re perfect for the boy’s 5th Birthday!
KATY: I could've left with so many things! I'm always on the lookout for gorgeous pieces for the girls’ rooms and I had my eye on the gorgeous pink star rug and divine prints for their walls... but I thought Cleo would enjoy a new toy as a special treat so we left with a doll & a wooden tractor. Completely random choices (life of a three-year-old!) but she was so excited with her new toys.
Were there any trends that you could see?
INGA: I saw a lot of different textures and soft tones. Pops of colour and monochrome are all still prevalent. But I can feel a big 90’s trend coming to our shores. Bring on the chunky shoulder pads! Not…
KATY: Not specifically but I was hugely impressed by what's on offer for styling kid’s rooms, beautiful toys and divine clothing. We're definitely spoilt for choice with so many amazing brands and products on offer these days.
Is there a Tinitrader treasure that you’ve been thinking about…and may have to just purchase?
INGA: I love everything about Castle and Cubby - particular the Beach Box. They’re made from recycled, untreated timber fruit and vegetable crates. I really want to convince my husband that we should get one in the backyard!
KATY: The Pink Star Rug by Cloud Den was super cute! Cleo was definitely more excited about the toys (rather than the rug!) so I might have to revisit that idea a little more! I let Cleo choose her favourite piece and she decided on a new doll and a wooden tractor.
