Christmas In the Country Art and Craft Show

It’s nearly here.
I’ve been busy creating for quite some weeks now in readiness for this big event.
It’s a show that I’ve been really looking forward to. I’ve heard fabulous reports about it.
It’s the Peace Lutheran School’s big fundraising event for the year.

Tomorrow is set up, then busy markets days on Friday and Saturday.

Here’s the details:

Christmas in the Country Art and Craft Market
Gatton Shire Hall – North St, Gatton
Friday 9am – 7pm
Saturday 9am – 4pm

They also have a Facebook page that you can check out some marketeers who’ll be there as well as pics of their lovely wares!

So, if you’ve nothing planned, why not take a drive out to Gatton to check out the market.
It’s only about a 90min drive west of Brissy.
It’s going to be a big few days.
Be sure to pop by and say Hi to me!

I’m banking on a fine day. Fingers crossed anyway??
The weather forecast is for a fine day.

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.

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!!

Market Wrap Up

It was a beautiful Brisbane winter morning on Saturday.
It started a little cool, but soon warmed up.
My helpers of Jase, Zac and Ella came over and helped me set up my stall.
They quite enjoyed it too. Saved me lugging boxes, tables and a tent all on my own!

After setting up, it was let the market begin!
Being my very first BrisStyle market I wasn’t sure what the day would be like.
Customers started streaming in from 9am, which was great!
Lots of lovely people browsed and bought goodies from Chelley bean!
I chatted to lots of customers…what I’m good at! LOL
My hair accessories were the biggest hit of the day…

Here’s a few pics…

Hairclips galore

A great day out. I enjoyed it immensely.
Can’t wait til the next one…

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…

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.
