Our First Birthday CELEBRATIONS

Hi Everyone

So, Saturday has been and gone with great success. We had a fabulous day.
The day started at 5:30am with stallholders eagerly awaiting the new and fabulous venue of the Ipswich Turf Club. Everything ran super smoothly all day. Mayor Paul Pisasale arrived on time to cut a ribbon and make a speech. River 94.9 was on hand to do live feeds all morning...everything worked out as planned.

The first 500 people who came through the door received a free cupcake. They were adored and loved by everyone who was lucky enough to get one. Unfortunately 800 people missed out....Yes, that's right. We had 1300 people through the door on Saturday. What an amazing response. Thanks to everyone who came and celebrated our first birthday with us. Thanks to all the stallholders, new and previous, for their support in moving to a new and fabulous venue. We have received fabulous feedback about our change. It was a big scary move, but we have done it and we are so glad that we did.

We were super excited to see Jay from Finki come all the way from Melbourne to visit us. She is exactly how we had pictured her...she is gorgeous
