Round She Goes
(Pre-loved Fashion Markets)
Round She Goes fashion markets have been popping up around Melbourne since 2008. Started by sisters Anne and Emma Morris, after having tried themselves to sell quality clothes at markets and on eBay, they found that they just were'nt getting the prices they hoped for because the market wasn’t quite the right fit for the type of items they were selling.
Anne and Emma grew up working in their Dad’s ice cream store in Adelaide from this experience in small business, it was inevitable that they would end up running their own business together. With Emma's postgraduate qualifications in journalism and public relations and Anne's qualifications in business, Anne takes care of the business operations and Emma acts as publicist and does the marketing and publicity for their events.
Round She Goes was started at the German Club Hall in Melbourne. There were around 50 stalls and after having a massive turn out of shoppers, they have started having 4 events per year in Melbourne with 100 stalls and thousands of men and women coming along to shop.
Round She Goes is a shopping day-out with a fun atmosphere, now getting twice as many applications to be stallholders as there are spots, at their Melbourne events.
Round She Goes provides a unique outlet for shoppers to pick up designer and vintage clothing as well as locally made jewellery and accessories at great prices. As Emma explains "It is a market that brings together sellers – which includes anyone who has a wardrobe full of items they no longer wear, but are in great, condition, together with the buyers – those of us who love designer clothes and unique items but at bargain prices."
In 2010, Round She Goes was voted 'Melbourne’s Favourite Event' by Leader Newspaper readers.
Emma explains that " the hard work being done by those around me is inspiring and motivating. And there is nothing that inspires you more than your own success (or failures). It is always important to pick yourself up when things don’t go the way you planned. Sometimes that’s when you have your best ideas."
Round She Goes is coming to Adelaide on Saturday the 5th of May. Emma and Anne have always wanted to bring the event back to Adelaide, as it is their original hometown. Remember they don’t run their events all the time, they are one off pop-up markets, so don't miss this great shopping opportunity!
