Roseline Deleu (Feng Shui Steps.com) interviews
Jose Toussaint (wynnummarket.com.au)
1. Please Jose, tell our readers briefly WHEN, HOW, WHERE or in WHICH circumstances we met
I met Roseline in Brisbane when I saw an add posted for a Feng Shui workshop in 2005. I recently migrated to Australia and was looking for likeminded people. I contacted Roseline and we stayed in contact ever since. It is always a real pleasure when Roseline visits us at Wynnum Market.
2. Since we met, could you share what is the most interesting Feng Shui result that you have experienced?
I have noticed that as soon as you look after ‘magic square’ sector 4, your business works better 🙂 Also I have learned when you purchase secondhand items such as mirrors, some ‘odd’ energy is attached to it. Roseline has often shown us when she visits Creative Treasures @ Wynnum Market how changing things around, the energy flows better and business changes in a positive way.
3. Let’s talk more about you now Jose… Tell us a little about yourself and your shop “Creative Treasures @ Wynnum Market”
Originally Holland, I migrated first 12 years to New Zealand, which I loved. We came to Australia in 2005. I have always loved selling things and have done markets for a long time (since I was 12). Filing up cars and emptying when going and packing up the markets can be somehow very tiring so we thought why not opening a shop and have our stock in there and see if other people like to share with us. That’s how Creative Treasures @ Wynnum Market was created.
4. What are the five words that people would use to describe “Creative Treasures @ Wynnum Markets?
Exciting – Great Customer Service – Handmade – Music & Books – Vintage & Collectables
5. What was the purpose of starting “Creative Treasures @ Wynnum Market” and how has the concept come about?
To create a store for everyone.To give local artists the opportunity to expose their art and crafts.It is a place where exhibitors rent a space like they do at the markets. The difference, is that they don’t have to carry their items in and out daily.The other good point is that we get NEW exhibitors regularly and stock varies constantly.
“Creative” = Art & crafts “Treasures” = Collectables @
“Wynnum” = is our locality “Market” = many different people exposing their art and craftwork in our store in Wynnum Central.
6. What are your best recommendations?

VISIT us first in person to see if this is for you.
SEE if you like our store and connect to the concept.
For customers, when you really like a product and you want to have it, there is an option to lay-by for four weeks or put on hold for 24 hrs.
7. Tell us more about what you provide to your exhibitors and clients?
We sell products/items on behalf of our clients, so they don’t have to be there and have time to work on their hobby or work elsewhere.
Each artist or exhibitor rents their space in Wynnum Market.
We make sure their area stays clean and well organised. We give our clients the opportunity to hold workshops in our store.
We host Workshops in art & craft as well as Motivational Talks.
Once a month you can come to our African Drumming evening workshop.
We are involved in Bayside Women in Business. (if you are a woman, you are in business!)

Our secret is to provide the best customer service, treat every person with respect and be happy for each person that you sell for in Creative Treasures @ Wynnum Market.
We mainly aim to have and sell LOCAL products made in Australia and to sell unique items.
9. What advice can you offer to people who are just discovering Wynnum Markets?
As a customer, take your time to look around, as there is much to see and take in.
There is a section for new and handmade items (Creative) and an area with collectables and vintage clothing (Treasures).
What is important to know, an item you might see and really like, might not be there next time you visit us! Often it is a one off product or the exhibitor is moving on.

I believe there is a special book for each person that visit us in Wynnum Market
