Big Shoes....

It is with great excitement that I introduce myself to the Sugar & Spice community and friends. My name is Sherryn and I am the new Owner and Director of Sugar & Spice Children's Market yay.

I can not go any further without giving much kudos and love to Sugar & Spice creator, Ali. Not only is Ali a lovely person, she is incredibly clever as well. Ali has created this gorgeous little brand that celebrates the world of handmade and takes beautiful and unique kids products to rural Victorian locations. I am so humbled that she chose me to take over! Ali has stayed true to the 'boutique' style market and I know that I wouldn't be alone in saying shopping at Sugar & Spice is a gorgeous experience all round. Thank you, Thank you Ali. You have poured many hours and lots of love into Sugar & Spice - I promise to take great care of your 'baby'.

A little background on me, I am the mother of two beautiful little people, Master Spice, 4 and Miss Sugar, 2. If only you knew how fitting this was to their personalities! I am a crafty lover and have been known to stalk all things market related. Including this very blog.
Have I told you we live in a beautiful part of the world?

I have 10 years plus experience working within the PR/Marketing & Event Management industry, and have just resigned from my role as Scienceworks' PR person to devote my attention to Sugar & Spice.

So from here I plan to throw myself in wholeheartedly. Let's hope for some fun, new relationships, LOTS of publicity, smiley shoppers/stall holders and busy, busy markets.

Drop me a line to say hello. Your suggestions and ideas to further the growth of sugar and spice are so very welcome.
