March Market Wrap Up...

Although the rain shortened the market, it didn't dampen the spirits of 74 stallholders and all their fans who came along on Saturday.
We are so proud of our wonderful stallholders who set up as if the sun was shining !

We had so many customers through the gate too, which was awe inspiring to know we have so many followers.
It seems rain hail or shine The Handmade Expo fans are still going to come to get their fix of all things handmade.
Here's a sample of the market and a snippet of what to expect on 16th April !

Thanks again everyone.

Tempted ?

Long overdue Post

Hi Everyone....

Yes, we have been overdue for a recent post. With the recent devastation around Ipswich and the Lockyer Valley, we have been a little sidetracked...

We had our first market back for 2011 back on the 19th Feb...It was an amazing day. We had a few things going on with the Re-Stash Craft Appeal which went amazingly. The donations were huge and the crafters who rummaged through all the donations were very appreciative to all of you...We also raised around $300 for the Ipswich Mayors Community Fund as well which has gone to Flood effected families in the region...So, a big thanks to everyone who donated....

Our next market is on Saturday 19th March. We have around the 80 stalls booked in for this market (and will probably increase over the next week). Our Gourmet Fresh section is growing which is lovely so soon you will be able to get EVERYTHING you need at the market...including Fresh Produce, etc...

The Handmade Expo will also be having a site at the Ipswich Show in May to sell and promote handmade as well as The Handmade Expo. We did this event back in 2009 and it was a huge success...talking to thousands and thousands of people and handing our thousands and thousands of brochures...We are looking for "handmadies" that would like to be involved with this event, so if you are interested, scoot us an email to

So, thanks heaps for your patience in blogland and we hope to keep our blog updated more often.
