CLARE + JOCE

Clare and Joce. Market Night Official Babes. 

These babes. Two of the best. Clare and Joce. They run a rocking online market supporting small businesses. Plus they are the babes behind Trinket Store and Nellie and the Cat respectively. They have so many other ideas, always bursting with energy and are super lovely too. We adore what they do and why they do it. Supporting small. And rocking it.

Market Night Official

THE LOWDOWN.
Our idea to hold an Instagram-based shopping night came to us in early 2015 and we held our first market with just seven stores in the May of that year. Our followers found our special deals by heading to a shared hashtag and we were blown away by our customers' support and love of a bargain. Fast forward to now, we have our own MNO account which is organically growing and each month we host up to 30 stores on Market Night with a 'comment to buy' format. We are also the home of the #flashsalefeature in which we promote one store, directing traffic to their website for a sale with a special code that customers get exclusively from us. We even host special sales events such as our recent 'Christmas in July' sale. 

BIGGEST INSPIRATION.
We love the Mums with Hustle community of bizmamas and we're pretty inpired by Head Hustler, Tracy Harris. To be honest, its the everyday mums in business who inspire us. The ladies just like us with overflowing washing baskets and email inboxes, neverending to-do lists and little people needing love. We are so inspired when we can support these women to make sales and grow their businesses.

WORD THAT MAKES YOU LAUGH.
CLARE. Buccinator (it's a muscle in your cheek).
JOCE. Hootenanny.

WORD THAT MAKES YOU CRINGE.
CLARE. Puce
JOCE. NOT! (y'know, like in Wayne's World. No)

PET PEEVE.
We both dislike bad manners and bad grammar.

FREAK OUT.
Overflowing inboxes and when we have to post loop giveaways on time.

WE LOVE.
To work together and we're totally 'work wives' hehehe. We love exploring our town with our kidlets, there's so much to do here if you know where to look and you have a warm jacket. Clare loves coffee, Joce loves tea. We both love chocolate, monochrome and shopping small.

WE LOATHE.
CLARE Goats' cheese.
JOCE lroning and makes NellieFella do that chore.

BEST PIECE OF ADVICE YOU HAVE BEEN GIVEN.
CLARE. 'Keep all your options open for as long as possible, travel widely and marry a man with good teeth'
JOCE. 'You can do anything but not everything'
