Out and About with Minene

Out and About with Minene

Minene have had such an exciting few months in Auckland! We have taken part in Mary's Markets in Ponsonby, a Plunket Market in Mangere, Home Show West Auckland and the Takapuna Toddler and Kids Markets. 

However, last weekend it was time to take my Scottish husband further afield, bring on Hamilton! We had an amazing time showcasing Minene at the Waikato Baby Expo and loved meeting everyone who stopped by the stand.

Our top sellers of the show were a bit of a change to Mary's Markets and webs sales, I guess that is a touch and feel thing!?! The Pushchair Liners were by far the favourite of the show, so much so that we had to do the charming Saturday night drive back to Auckland to pick up more stock. Must have been my makeshift clothes line :) 

My favourite buy of the show has to be the light box! How fun are these things? Rob certainly enjoyed himself changing the messages and thinking he was generally hilarious. My second favourite purchase, and I am sure you will all have one or more of these at home, the Jellycat Monkey! Oh my, so cute and so soft, what a great excuse to buy myself a new soft toy.

On the back of the excitement from the Waikato Show we have now signed up for Auckland!! Very exciting and a little scary ($$) however perhaps a good excuse for me to buy some new things, for the stand of course!

Keep an eye on the blog over the next 6 weeks in the lead up, we will have more information about where Minene will be and some of the Show Offers we will have available to our lovely and loyal shoppers. 

Also keep an eye on the new coming soon section of the website, these are our new products for SS16 and I am so excited! Last Christmas the black & white storage collection was a sketch on a pad after hours spent on instagram looking at the stunning nurseries and bedrooms. And now, 10 months later and a few 'stamping of feet moments' it will be a reality!

Alright enough from me! If you have any questions feedback and just want to say Hi, feel free to comment too! 

Chat soon, Rebecca xx

Minene & Mary's Markets

Minene NZ are very excited to have joined Mary's Markets in Ponsonby, Auckland. 

Our first baby market was on Saturday April 9th and we had a great time! The market was a sell out, with many gorgeous baby brands from around New Zealand as well as international labels. 


We were a little nervous setting up - would we look like we belong? Would we look professional enough? And luckily we were very happy with our finished table. 

We loved your enthusiasm for our products. It felt amazing to have such positive feedback as it was the first time we had all of the product on show and available to buy anywhere other than online. 

Your favourite products of the day were the gorgeous bandana bibs in the blue, red & grey stars. 

and our cosy fleece booties in the pink! There will be lots of little ladies with warm feet this winter. 

On the back of such a fabulous morning at Mary's Markets we are happy to tell you that we will be taking part in the May market later this month. So be sure to come and see us on Saturday 14th of May. More information can be found on the Mary's Markets website here.

We would love to see you there! Let us know that you have seen this blog and we will give you and extra 20% Minene discount on the day! :) 


Thanks for reading and please feel free to leave your feedback, comments or questions.

Lots of love,
