Our aim is to support all creative designers and events showcasing independent labels. MOTL is a not-for-profit, non-partisan organisation. You may wonder why we promote other markets besides MOTL; it’s because it’s not about us, its about you; the buyers and sellers of indie wares. Here at the blog, you’ll discover up to date information about our latest market, the low-down on some of

A little about me, I began as a Murdoch graduate in Marine Science and Biological science which lead me to a position in the Department of Water as essentially an environmental scientist. Almost three years and one thought provoking jaunt around South America later, I knew the life of science wasn't for me. I hung up my survey khakis and threw myself into a hobby which had always bordered on obsession, the continued and endless search for THE perfect vintage piece. I now have to-die-for vintage apparel coming out of my ears as well as a proud collection of vintage jewellery, handbags, homewares, shoes and menswear.

The Walk Against Warming (WAW) is a national event that brings together thousands of people in cities and towns across
In 2008, close to 100,000 people participated in WAW in 28 locations across Australia. We are expecting to have over 1500 people participating in the event held in Perth this year. The WAW event will be a great opportunity for organisations such as yours to promote your products and services or provide information to the community on climate change and what they can do to contribute to reducing Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions.
This year, the WAW will be held at Russell Square, Northbridge. After initially assembling at the Perth Cultural Centre, people will walk through the streets to Russell Square. From 11:00 – 3:00 pm the community gathering will include children’s activities, speeches by special guests, music and media events. There will be plenty of opportunity for people to visit the stalls.
Since places are limited and priority is given to our sponsors, please let us know as soon as possible if you would like to exhibit a stall and provide an indication of the stall area you would like. Space will be allocated on a ‘first come-first served’ basis. No power is available.
The cost to non-affiliates and businesses is $100.
To register your interest in exhibiting a stall at the WAW or for further information, please contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org.

The East Fremantle Festival is on again this year on Sunday, 6 December from 1:00pm until 7:00pm. George Street will come alive with an artisan market of handmade products, three stages of non-stop entertainment, free rides and amusements for the kids and much more!
The artisan market, the main feature of the festival, is a maker’s market, where all stall holders are required to have had substantial involvement in the design and production of the arts, crafts, body products and local produce. Your stall products must be handmade by you - the artisan.
Market Criteria: This is not a market for imported goods (even if you designed them), bric-a-brac, 2nd hand goods etc. Local people hand making their products cannot compete with the prices of imported goods, so if you have some imported goods in your range you will not be allowed to sell them at this market. You can be refused entry to the market on the day or asked to leave if you are selling imported goods at the festival. If you are unsure about whether your goods fulfil this handmade criteria, please call me direct to discuss it. Sorry to ‘harp on’ about it, but it is really important that all goods are handmade by you and not imported, to keep my intention of the original artisan market (launched at the 2007 festival).
Please note, I do have to limit the amount of jewellery stalls and other product lines, otherwise it affects the uniqueness and range of products in the artisan market.
Market details are as follows:
Date: Sunday 6 December 2009
Time: 1:00pm – 7:00pm
Venue: George Street, East Fremantle
Stall cost: $55. No commission payable.
Insurance fee: $27.50 (if you don’t have your own public liability insurance, this fee is payable)
Standard stall space: 3mx3m
Stall equipment: stall holders to provide their own shade shelter and to be responsible for securing it to the hard road surface (sand bags etc)
Table hire: you can hire a table through me for $16.50 per 1.8m table (or supply your own)
I will need your expression of interest by next Friday October 9 to guarantee you a place in the artisan market.
If you would like to take part, simply email Cynthia Williamson Cynthia@ccequipment.com.au or call and ask for the artisan market info and application form.
If you have any questions about the festival, especially the artisan market, please call me on 0415 649 265.
