Another Great Day !

What a wonderful handmade community we have here in Launceston !  Thanks to Tameeka, Kylie and all my fellow marketeers for another fantastic day out at the Civic Homespun venue last Saturday - 10th April. A friendly and supportive lot we are too.  It's a fantastic way to spend a day - talking to interesting and passionate people about what they like to do best, and getting a chance to talk to prospective customers to find out what they are looking for.  Although numbers of visitors to our venue appeared to be down a little (weather ??) there were still buyers about and thanks to all those who helped Rowena have another successful market. xxxooo

Tameeka says that the next one - Saturday 24th April - will be HUGE !  More stallholders than ever.

See you there.
