Auckland Baby Show - See you there!

Auckland Baby Show - See you there!

Visit Minene (me!) at the Auckland Baby Show next weekend!

It is our first appearance at the show and we will be in the market stalls Stand M39A. I am doing some last minute planning and hope you will love the look and feel of the stand. It isn't very often that I get to have all of the stock on display and play 'shop' so I am very excited! 

We will have some of our ss16 stock, mainly the black and white storage range, on show so you can touch and feel before it is available to buy early September! I think you will absolutely love it! I think I am planning to design my bedroom around the black and white circles - too good to save just for the kids.

Stop by, say hi & receive a special little gift! Plus we will have a fabulous competition for you to enter and extra special prices over the weekend.

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
