Hi Everyone

A big congrats to Debbie Smart from Fudge du Ciel. You have been chosen to be the stallholder of the week and also be featured in the Ipswich News and Westside News.

Debbie has also been with The Handmade Expo since DAY #1...
Here is her profile...

FUDGE du CIEL (a taste if heaven)

How long have you been creating for?
For about 3.5 years

What inspires and motivates you to create?
The customers and their pleasure of my product and also the peoples enjoyment of my product

What is your favourite item that you make?
Coconut ice because it looks pretty especially when I put it into the beautiful glass jars and use them in lolly bars for weddings and corporate functions.

Where is your studio/dedicated creative space?
We use a dedicated commercial kitchen and space at our home - our premises are one of our top goals.

What is your most popular item within your collection?
It is all equally popular...which really amazes me.

Do you have any new products in the works?
I try and think of new things all the time but then seem to go back to just the fudges as it is the most popular and sells well with no waste.

Where do you see yourself in 2 years time?
In retail, wholesale and internet sales. I am working towards my magical outlet of "all things fudge" and that heavenly experience.

What do you love about The Handmade Expo? Why do you keep coming back?
Everything is special because it is Handmade so you see how much love goes into all the products. The Handmade Expo supports local and small business which I am also passionate about. I keep coming back because of the lovely stallholders, customers and organisers, Liesa, Micky & MIriam.

Thanks so much Debbie for completing the online stallholder questionnaire. If you would like to have your business/hobby up in lights, all you need to do is complete the questionnaire...You might see yourself in the newspaper too...HOW COOL :)

Liesa, Micky & Miriam

This fudge is just divine. It's always the first thing I head for at the expo. Just like Nanna used to make. Love it!

Debbie is the favourite stallholder in Patrick's opinion. Caramel fudge is a compulsory purchase at every THE! Lisa x

I tried some of this fudge at the last expo and it was delicious! I'll be back for more at tomorrow's market :)
