Just around the corner

Hi everyone,
The next market is just around the corner really, with only 18 days to go until the September Handmade Expo Market.
How time flies when you're having fun creating all those wonderfully beautiful treasures.
We're sure there'll be lots of people starting to cross things off their lists for Christmas this month, so be prepared !
Dont forget to start spreading the word about the market by facebooking, tweeting, emailing your contacts, handing out all those date flyers.
There is an event listing on facebook thats easy to use if you'd like to invite your facebook friends to all come.
Just search The Handmade Expo and click on the event, then invite your friends, couldn't be simpler!

Skip a couple of markets to NOVEMBER

Hi Everyone

We just want to take you to the November 20th market.

We are so lucky and proud to have the QLD Firefighters attend the November 20th Handmade Expo to sell their 2011 Firemen's Calanders.

We know that Wayne will be there and possibly a couple more from the calander as well.

This is Wayne.

Please make him feel welcome at our November market.

All monies raised from the sale of these calanders go to the Royal Children’s Hospital Foundation. What a wonderful cause...
