Saturday...BEEN, GONE AND FABULOUS

Hello Everyone.

We have been hanging out to blog the success of our Saturday market. We had some awesome feedback from both customers and stallholders alike. So, a big thanks to the Stallholders for their feedback and for also coming every month (or so), before day break to set up to support The Handmade Expo. A big thanks also to the Customers who continue to come and support not only The Handmade Expo, but Handmade as well...and of course, supporting the wonderful stallholders and we know that you are becoming regulars as we recognise your faces every market...we also just HAD to mention the family that came all the way from LISMORE, NSW to see the market...

So, we wanted to give you some fab figures for the day.
We had a whopping 1100 people come through the door on Saturday, what an amazing response. We also raised $800 for the Red Cross Victorian Bushfire Appeal...FANTASTIC. A big thanks to the Stallholders for donating their handmade goodies to the wonderful looking handmade hampers. Congrats to the 3 winners.
The Red Cross also sizzled sausages and raised a good $1,092 to the appeal. Almost $2000 was raised on the day for the devastating disaster.

The photos that were taken are not too good, so we dont have any this month, however, please keep you eye out in all the local papers for photos and stories...We did have a couple of them arrive on the day to take some photos and we have been talking to them about the successful day. So, keep your eyes peeled for those.

Our next market is being held on Saturday 28th March at The Ipswich Vigoro Final Funday on Jacaranda St, East Ipswich. We are still taking bookings for new stallholders, so, if you are interested in having a stall, please email Liesa at: thehandmadeexpo@optusnet.com.au.

From
Liesa, Micky & Miriam
