The Handmade Expo has been and gone for another month and what a great day it was. Other than the dreadful wind, the school holidays and the AFL Grand Final to contend with we had nearly 900 people through the gates which we are absolutely over the moon with.

The majority of stallholders that we spoke to during the day had a great day and great trade.

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.

We welcomed back Farmer Dave with this lamb, and also Mrs K's Cafe & Bakery selling bread and slices. You can find Mrs K's during the week at the Winston Glades Shopping Centre.

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.

Thanks for listening and 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.
