Happy June Everybody! Hope you are all enjoying the intermittent sunshine and floods of rain.
We've been a busy bunch here at MollyQueen, recovering from our last Market, which was a great success and attending some fantastic events in our fair city. Thanks to everyone who came along, and to all of the artists who featured their work. We dont have many photo's of the day, so if anyone has any please send them in to us and we'll get them up!
The Next Marvellous Market is going to at a different venue, located just 2 minutes away from Hotel Deux. It will be at The Federation Social Club which is on Claremont Road and is easy to get to from either Nottingham Road or Hucknall Road. We are very excited, this is set to be the biggest market yet! We have room for double the amount of stalls, we have a large stage for live music and entertainment AND there is even room for an Underground Restaurant Cafe. (Not actually Underground)
There is also a large car park and a SECRET GARDEN so you can relax on your Sunday afternoon and 'catch some rays', 'chill' or whatever it is we do these days...
Sunday the 7th August between 11 - 4pm
@ The Federation Social Club on Claremont road
(Venue can be access from both Ebury Road AND Claremont Road,
but the Car park entrance is on Claremont road)
The market will be open to the public between 11 and 4pm and the bar will be open serving drinks, teas and coffees all day. For more info on the market or to apply as a stall holder, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Anyway, here's a bit of what we've been up to recently, and what we have coming up before the next Marvellous Market.

Urtopia @ Moog - MQ on the Road - Thursday 9th June
We are waiting for the photos, but can say that it was a fantastic night, met loads of wicked people and won a fantastic set of scales on the raffle! Ha ha!
Urtopia is a travelling boutique that raises money for Macmillan Cancer Support and is run by a super dooper lady called Emilie who is basically, rather fabulous.
We are hoping that Urtopia will have a section at our next market, pop back nearer the time for an update and a full breakdown of artists!
We were also lucky to meet the owner of this fluffy fellow, the lady from Sneaky, another fabulous organisation that we hope to have featuring at our Market. The ethos of this company is recycling and re-using what some people may consider as rubbish to make amazing, creative and beautiful items ranging from record ear rings and jewellery all the way to cheeky garters and funky fascinators. Take a look at their website here.
UnderGround Bakery Vintage Tea Party - Saturday 11th June
On Saturday we tagged along as the UnderGround Bakery took over a small unused shop space in sherwood and used the spacious veranda to serve a selection of cream teas, afternoon teas, sandwiches and scones.
A wonderful day had by all, read about it and see some photo's at the UnderGround Bakery blog here.
