The Ipswich Show - Open Invitation


We have an opening at the Ipswich Show for anyone that is interested in selling and promoting their fab handmade goodies.

Now, this is little different to our normal handmade expos. With the Ipswich Show, The Handmade Expo is taking out 2 sites in the showspace pavilion to sell and promote handmade.

We have quite a few committed to this fabulous new adventure, however, we have gone through our list and it seems that we are missing a few things:

Soft kids toys
Funky Scarves & Hats
Pet Accessories
and anything that little bit different and unusual

We have a big range of things that we are showing and a small amount of things that we are missing and would love to have....

Here is how it works:

You need a minimum of $200 worth of stock (plus extras to restock)
Please email us for the cost to be involved over the 3 x 12 hour days.
7th, 8th & 9th May (9am-9pm)
You do not need to be there, Miriam and I will be selling and promoting your items on your behalf. We do have a roster system going, if you are keen to volunteer an hour or 2 of your time.
You need to deliver your items on Wednesday morning at the Showgrounds (or
organise prior date/location if this does not suit) and collect your items
which we hope is not a lot) on Sunday 10th May (or if this day does not
suit, you can collect from my home on Tuesday, Wednesday or Friday the following week)

Numbers that we have been provided by the Ipswich Show Society is up to
30,000 people come through the doors over the 3 days. With the growing
popularity of handmade items, this is a great opportunity to promote,
showcase and sell handmade.

So, we will leave this with you and hope that some of you will be interested
in joining us at the show.

Liesa & Miriam

Hi, thanks for leaving a guess for the bunting giveaway. I will let you know at the end of the month. Im glad i found your blog too. I have seen this advertised, and will hopefully come and visit. I dont have enough to exibit myself at present, but if you have a marquee or so, and need some decoration id love to send up a couple of metres of oilcloth bunting with my logo on for you to decorate the stall with.
Let me know. Susie
