Mum Talks Mama Market and June Talk 2018 – House, Leeson St. Dublin

At each Mum Talks event, we are blown away by the amazing biz mums starting up successful enterprises. At our monthly talks, we have a Shout-Out section for anyone in the room that morning who has a business or blog they want to promote to our Mama tribe.

In June we decided to take it a step further and host a market for any businesses who wanted to exhibit or sell to the mums attending the June talk. We also promoted the market to the surrounding businesses on Leeson st. and to anyone who wanted to pop in. It was a fabulous addition to the morning and there was such a buzz of support and connection!

Here are some pictures from the morning taken by the super talented photographer Sarah Carton. Be sure to check out her website and follow her on social.

We will be hosting another market before Christmas so if you are interested in taking part please do send us a mail (hello@mumtalks.ie) so we can let you know as soon as we have all the details x
