The 1st birthday of the Handmade Expo has been and gone... and what a success. Thank you to all our stallholders who continue to support us month after month and to the wonderful customers who come through our doors every month and really enjoy what we do... this fabulous market of handmade, hand grown awsomeness is what we do and what we will continue to do for our wonderful city of Ipswich.... So don't miss the next one which will be on Saturday 26th September, Ipswich Turf Club at Bundamba from 8am to 2pm... Anyway, here are some photo's of the wonderful day. We had a brilliant 105 stalls and approx. 1200 customers through the door... THANK YOU!

The atmosphere of our new venue was awesome. We had buskers, sausage sizzles, free cupcakes to our first 500 customers, fab coffee and lovely people flowing all day. Many customers stayed for hours and did a couple of rounds. It just has a really relaxed feel. So hope to see you in September.


  1. Hi Micky yes we made it out there. A bit of a trek for me who is really not a morning person and with a head cold to boot. Managed to bag myself a bubba heat pad to help with the flu. Well done with the organising

  2. Thanks for a fun time at the Handmade Expo Micky. My daughter and I enjoyed looking at the handmade goodies and buying a few things as well. Smiles Catherine
