The February Handmade Expo... Wow..

Hi Everyone,

Once again a bit down on my Handmadies posts but slowly regaining my speed - I don't know what's happening - did I lose my MOJO???

Anyway on 20th February we held our first Handmade Expo for 2010 and what a fantastic turnout for stallholders and customers alike - it would have to be up from last year and what a great day. People must have missed us as they were lining up at the door waiting to enter... what a great feeling. We had a few showers throughout the day which didn't deter the customers coming through the gates.. more of an annoying rain then anything!

The Steam Train was a great hit with customers flowing in from that over the day as well - enjoyed by all that I was able to speak with... I know my boys had a great time and will be doing it again next month.. what a great opportunity.

A great big thank you to our wonderful farmers who came again this month - their fresh local produce a massive hit with the customers, oh and the stallholders (including myself)!!! Thank you and we will see you back next month - you might need to bring some more with you!

The day all in all was fantastic, it ran smoothly, the stallholders had their wonderful handmade, handgrown and handbaked wares for sale which were being snapped up quickly by customers.

Thank you all sooo much for keeping this wonderful specialised handmade only market going once a month... we are passionate about what we do and we hope that it shows.

See you next month... mark it in your diaries - Saturday 20th March - Same Time, Same Place.
