The Handmade Expo

Hi everyone!
The Handmade Expo is on again tomorrow and this one is shaping up as the biggest market yet for them!
There’s over 140 stalls, Soulman Gaia singin his soulful tunes, the sausage sizzle, the Swanbank Steam Train rides and the Fireman from the 2011 Fireman’s Calendar!
A very big one…
There’s always plenty to eat too…Yum!
I also have 2 new Hairclip sets for sale.
These are the little non-slip variety that everyone seems to love, especially for those little people that have trouble keeping clips in their hair!

They will be available for $6 each.
I’m really looking forward to this one!

Remember, if there’s anything you see on my blog that you’d like to purchase you can drop me an email  or visit my Etsy store and I can organise your purchase. I charge Australia Post rates and within Australia, these items will cost $1.20 to post! Email me for overseas postage costs.
Have a great weekend.

The Handmade Expo is on in Ipswich tomorrow!
I’m banking on a fine day. Fingers crossed anyway??
The weather forecast is for a fine day.
I’ve been lucky doing the markets and haven’t had a soggy wet day yet!
Let’s hope tomorrow is beautiful!

It’s a big celebration for The Handmade Expo this month. They are celebrating their 2nd Birthday and are celebrating with giveaways at the door for the kids and a FREE CUPCAKE for the first 500 shoppers through the gate.
He’re’s an article about the 2nd Birthday!

There’s also a butcher at the market this month, too…new for the market!
The Wood-fired pizza’s are back this month too…Know what I’m having for lunch!

As always I have some new stock for sale this month!
I keep getting asked about hair clips for little girls. From babies onwards really…Seems hair clips for the little ones are very sought after. I’ve even used non-slip grips on them so they won’t fall out.
Here’s the range of colours I’ve created them in…

They’ll come in a set of 2 clips in one colour. Cute huh?
They are on Etsy too, as of last night!

I’ve also added a few more mixed sets of Single Yo-Yo’s to Etsy. You can check them out here.

Lots going on…Hope to see you there!!

April Handmade Expo Wrap-Up

I had a good day at the Handmade Expo on Saturday.
My new Yo-yo hairclips were a hit, selling plenty of those and well as plenty of other goodies.
My Mum came and helped me out for the day. Always nice to have someone to chat to.

I took some pics of my stand too.
Check out the bunting! They turned out really good.

My scrapbooking embellishments…

Lots of Notelets…

Check these out…this was morning tea with our cuppa!

Another fun day out at the Handmade Expo!

Off to market

I’m off to market tomorrow.
The Handmade Expo is on in Ipswich, at the Ipswich Turf Club at Bundamba.
Open from 8am-2pm, with free parking and entry.
The steam train is running also, which is a big drawcard and it’s also the Ipswich Festival this weekend, so I’m hoping for a BIG day!!

I have some new hairclips for this market.
New Yo-Yo ones, which are a bit cute.
They must be, as Ella has already gone and picked some for herself.

I have a special running at the moment, that if you purchase one of my hairclip holders, you’ll get one of these cute little Yo-Yo clips for free.
They’ll be on Etsy soon, but the special is especially for the markets.

I’ve also made over my cork boards this week. I covered them in fabric, as the white spray paint didn’t look very nice. So, I’ve made the cork boards into little clotheslines with twine and used those cute little clothes pegs to hold them all on. They look great now!

I also have some new Sculpey buttons trios and some new Paper Owls.

If you pop by to the market, be sure to pop by and say Hi.
I love meeting blog readers.

Chat soon,

I’m off to market…

No, not to buy a fat pig!!!
My kids love that song. It’s on ABC Kids all the time. LOL

It’s the Handmade Expo in Ipswich.
Let’s hope the weather is nice. Although, I’m prepared if it isn’t.
This time round is the first time I’m setting up my tent myself. We’ll see how that goes?? LOL
Could be a comedy of errors?? Haha

Anyway, here’s the details.

When: Saturday 20th March

Where: Ipswich Turf Club
Brisbane Rd, Bundamba

Time: 8am-2pm

Free Entry and Parking

The Steam Train rides are on again. The Railway line runs right beside the Turf Club, so it’s easy to hop on and go for a ride.I haven’t seen the train just yet, but it looks like heaps of fun.
If you are in the area, be sure to pop down and say Hi!!
I love seeing friendly familiar faces.
I have some new goodies on offer, before they hit Etsy!!!
So, you’ll be the first to see them!

They’re over for 2009…

I did my last market for 2009 at The Handmade Expo today.
My lovely Mum, Di came and helped me on my stall.
It’s not often she helps me. I’m usually helping her with her business, so it was a nice change.

We set up nice and early in the cool, before the heat took over. It was warm and I did get a little sunburnt. For the HOT weather Ipswich can turn on, we were pretty lucky today. Lots of cloud cover and a lovely breeze which sometimes turned into wind and had me chasing embellishments around the place! LOL
A lovely lady on a neighbouring stand came to my rescue with some sand weights to hold things down. How nice was she??

We had a great day. Sold plenty, which is always good. Christmas time is always good, with people looking for goodies for Christmas gifts.
I also got a lead or two to follow up in the New Year…You’ll have to wait and see what that’s about. I’ll keep you posted! 😉

Here’s a few pics of what I had today…

My Notelets are one of my best sellers!

I altered some Address books, this time round which were quite popular too.

Even Christmas cards went well.

It was a lot of fun…Bring on Christmas now!!
Time for a little break before we get back into it in the New Year!

Chat soon,

I’m off to market…
