All of our posts that we place on this blog are very upbeat and positive...HOWEVER, we have come across people stealing our signs...which is a very unfortunate thing. Not only for The Handmade Expo, but for the Ipswich Community.
We get up very early the Sunday morning before the Expo to put the signs on poles all around Ipswich. It takes us a good 2 hours to accomplish. The Sunday after the expo, we race around town to collect them. Now...here is the interesting bit!
Every month, we are down at least 1 sign. Someone is stealing our signs. This month, there were 3 that went missing.
We use a ladder, we use a drill, we use screws...They are very securely put into the poles.
We started with 25 signs...now we are down to 15.
We have found that this is a fab way of getting the word out to the local Ipswich community...Here is a photo of our signs. If you see any laying around (which we have done so before), please let us know...
