hello sailor.

ahoy girls and boys.
ohhh.. how very slack we have been once again in updating you all..

In all fairness we were busy preparing for our first Hello Sailor stall, filling in Uni applications and working full time.. time just slipped away!!

Hello Sailor at The Grace Darling on Smith St Collingwood, was sensational!! Amazing in general, and even more so for our second gig. The han&bear stall was alive and buzzing, right from the get go! 
You will be able to find us again on the 28th of November, 12-6pm once again at the Grace Darling. Wonderful restaurant, bar, live music and market festivites. Really has it all going on! 

Hope to see you all soon.

hello kitties,
Sorry we have been so slack at updating our blog- but we had been soooo busy preparing for our first stall. Which we are happy to announce, was such a success!!! 

han&bear thought they would share some happy snaps with you of the day!!

The weather was a beautiful 25 degrees! Which made sitting in the sun not a hassle in the slightest! Along with a wonderful cafe connected to the market filled with fresh homemade breakfasts, lunches and deserts. yumm.

I don't think we even realised how much we had until it was all un-packed and displayed!! The more the better we say!!

The first time is always the most difficult. Finding the best way to pack and display the most appropriately. Definitely need to down size our packing load!!! A few too many boxes, trolleys and storage bags!

 All things considered we had a great response and interest in what we had to offer, so we will definitely continue looking into other markets and applying for as many days at rose street as we can.

I don't think we could have asked for a better first market stall!! A big thank you to both our papa's for helping us with the load, aswel as all of you that headed to the market that made our experience a huge success!!

Big love from han&bear xx

step up.

you are my sunshine.

Han and i headed down to the Rose Street Market today, just to get our bearings right for next weekend. 
It is wonderful!! 
We are so privileged to have a place in the stall on Sunday! 

The tags are now attached to all the jewellery. Next step are the shoes(*no pun intended hehe) and tomorrow the clothes should also be tagged. 
We still have to find some carry bags and hopfully have our stamp printed tomorrow! Everything has happened so fast! Fingers crossed everything falls into place on the day!!

market to market.

hello lovelies.
We are so excited to announce our very first market stall!! Which will be held on Sunday the 10th of October at The Rose Street Artists' Market, in Fitzroy! The market opens at 11am so wander on down after a leisurely breakfast and take a peek at all things unique and quirky. *Fingers crossed* the sun shall shine and the birds will sing. Please do a special little sun dance for us on the day.
So much to do, so little time!
Happy days.

cross our hearts.

We are a pair of free spirited hippy souls.

We vow only to use recycled paper tags, bags and gift wrap.
All items for sale are pre-loved; of which have had a life of their own.

Let's share our closet. With a history.

little lady.

sneak peek into han&bear.


Why Hello Pretty Little Kitties..

Thank- you to those who have already befriended han&bear! We thought our first message should give you a little insight into what we are all about! han&bear will offer a range of pre-loved clothing and accessories. Some of which will be altered with a h&b touch, others which will remain in their original state, all of which will be to the highest quality. Expect to find vintage/retro from the '40s, 50s, '60s, '70s and '80s as well as other kitsch and unique items we have managed to discover and recreate. We believe this new movement into recycled clothing and the revival of eras past is definitely a good direction for fashion to head. Not only are we helping control what we consume but we can be far more creative in the process. For what is perhaps someone's trash, maybe someone else's treasure! This is all so new, so please bear with us while we get this show on the road. We promise to have photos up very very soon and we will definitely be having some stalls at markets, as well as garage sales throughout Spring and Summer!! In the meantime, please don't keep this a secret, we need you to help spread the word!!
