Well, we are both a little weary after another big day at the Handmade Expo in Ipswich.  We love Liesa, Micky and Miriam and really enjoy being a part of any markets or events that they have planned.  

They truly value handmade goods.  The creativity and personality that the creators reveal in their products are recognised by these girls and they work really hard to make sure there is an avenue for people to create handmade goods and buy handmade goods.  Their next event is on the 4th April when Handmade Expo does Gundy!  We're packing the cars and taking our lovely wares on the road to the Goondiwindi PCYC.  We hope you can join us and tell your friends.  

If you'd like to keep up with the Handmade Expo Ladies, click here.  We'll leave you with a thought from the girls to take with you as you go about the week:

Buying handmade is better for people:
The ascendancy of chain store culture and global manufacturing has left us dressing, furnishing and decorating alike.  We are encouraged to be consumers, not producers, of our own culture.  Our ties to the local and human sources of our goods have been lost.  Buying handmade helps us reconnect.

Perhaps this week, you can try to reconnect with your 'culture' and the things that make you and your home unique and unrepeatable.  Have fun!


  1. You are so beautiful to say these things. We are sooo passionate about handmade we are glad it reflects in what we do.
    We really appreciate you and your support of The Handmade Expo and the lovely comments.
