The Handmade Expo - November Market Wrap up

Hi Everyone

We have 1 word to describe The Handmade Expo Market on Saturday.

AMAZING

It was the best market we have ever had for customers and stallholders alike.
We had over 130 stalls and over 2,500 people come through the gate to enjoy the market offerings which included steam train rides, Soulman singing his great soul music, great food, flowers, fruit and veg and just a MASSIVE array of lovely handmade things, oh not forgetting Wayne the Fireman, (we are sure he attracted a few people on the day). Thanks to Mayor Paul Pisasale, for supporting us once again, and also to Councillor Andrew Antonelli for coming to judge our Christmas Stall winner.
For those of you who do not know who this is, we are proud to announce that Dorothy and Brian from the timber dinosaurs won. Did you see the Massive Rex dressed as santa?
Dorothy and Brian chose a local charity - Ipswich Hospice to be the recipient of the $100 donation from The Handmade Expo....

Now for some amazing photos...we would like to thank Paula from Minta Entertainment for roaming the market and taking professional photos...












There will be plenty more photos to come, so keep posted for those.

Thanks to everyone involved in making Saturday AMAZING.

From
Liesa, Micky & Miriam

ps...see you same time, same place on the 18th December
