Another Great Market Day

Another Great Market Day

Our stand at Mega Indoor Markets, HBF Arena, Sunday 23rd July 2017I would like to say a big “Thank You” to everyone who came and visited me on Sunday at the MEGA Indoor Market, you help to make it Another Great Market Day!

I love the travelling stories you tell me and describe to me your favourite places to visit, adding to the bucket list of places we should go.

If your not telling me travelling stories you are talking about a native animal that adopted your family and the antics they get up to, reinforcing our feeling that our native wildlife is second to none.

Keep travelling and caring for our environment and I hope to see you again soon at another market with more stories of your adventures in Western Australia and close encounters with local wildlife 🙂

I would also like to thank Linsey and Luke from Linsey’s Community Events for organising a great event!

EFTPOS and Credit Card Payments Now Accepted

EFTPOS and Credit Card Payments Now Accepted

Now we have been going to markets for about 3 months we have decided to get an EFTPOS machine for our shoppers convenience.

We realised that most people only bring enough cash for their fresh food purchases so it simplifies things if we can take Pay Pass, Credit Cards and EFTPOS. The other great thing about the solution we have chosen we can SMS or email you a receipt on the spot.

If you are a small business and would like a low fee option then we can recommend SquareUp. For under $50 you can buy the hardware, which connects to your mobile phone and signing up for an account is free. You can purchase the hardware direct or you can buy it in OfficeWorks.

Once signed up you can refer others to sign up for an account which provides you and the person signing up with up to $1000 fee free sales in the first 180 days. So with that in mind here is my link 🙂

Having EFTPOS has definitely made a big difference to us and I have found SquareUp to be simple to use and we get paid within 1 business day.

Firstly let us introduce ourselves, we are Dave & Maggie Catley of MADCAT Photography living in Perth, Western Australia.

We have recently been questioning our direction in life and looking for a way to make our journey together in life as rewarding as possible, and this is it!

Not only are we mad about where we live we are also Maggie And Dave getting About in WA, hence we are literally MAD About WA and we want to share our experiences in this amazing place with everyone else.

We have also recently been looking inward at ourselves in an effort to discover how we can make the rest of our lives as happy, healthy & long as we possibly can and we would also like to share the new lifestyle we are creating along the way.

Dave’s Photography will continue to be a big part of what we do and we will be showcasing the places we love to visit, eat, drink, relax and have fun in.

There will be healthy tips such as how we cold brew our own herbal teas and make our own yogurt and why we believe meditation is the best thing since sliced bread.

Then again there will be fun stuff such as our love for local craft beers, tasty cuisine and fun events.

What there won’t be is a trail of criticism and negativity, this is a reflection of our lives and we want it to be positive & fun. If it wasn’t enjoyable we simply won’t talk about it.

All that being said, this is not only about our lifestyle, it is also about our livelihood and we plan to bring the wonders of Western Australia for you to enjoy in your own lives.
