September Handmade Expo

I have been so slack and not posting about Saturdays successful Handmade Expo, Where does the time go ?
What a great day it was. Other than the dreadful wind, the school holidays, Carnival of Flowers, the NRL semi final and the AFL Grand Final to contend with we had nearly 900 people through the gates which we are absolutely over the moon with.
We were so flat out all day that we all forgot to pull out our cameras...
The majority of stallholders that we spoke to during the day had a great day and great trade. Bubba was buzzing with lots of refered customers and regulars too. ( thanks to all of you who keep me going every month )
We also welcomed 120 stallholders, so the Expo is expanding every month which is just fabulous and we really want to grow our Gourmet Fresh section so please, if you know any farmers out there looking to sell their produce please ask them to contact us - they are always welcome. Even if they only grow one variety of something, they can fill their ute and drive on in ! (after they've booked in of course ! )
We welcomed back Farmer Dave with his lamb, and also Mrs K's Cafe & Bakery selling bread and slices.
Don't forget we have stalls ranging from fabulous cupcakes and coffee to kids clothing, accessories, plants, timber products, jewellery and much more.
The next Expo will be held on Saturday 17th October, Ipswich Turf Club from 8am to 2pm with adults $2 and kids free.
October we are welcoming a Guiness World Record challenge which needs your help. A minimum of 1500 people are required to break the World Record of doing "Heads, Shoulders, Knees & Toes"... if you know how to do this make sure you come to the Expo and be part of the World Record. This is going to be so much fun and something a bit different for a Saturdays outing !
We would love to hear about your experience at The Handmade Expo so feel free to blog about us. It would also be great if you could blog about the upcoming Expo in October... word of mouth is fabulous and it would be great to have help from everyone in blogland.

I'll be having a giveaway in the next couple of days, it's for my one year blogaversary and you're going to love it so make sure you check back in a few days!
