Market wrap-up

Handmade CanberraWhat a weekend!!  Thank you to all of you for contributing to such a successful event.  It was great to catch up with so many of you at drinks on Saturday night, and as we moved around the hall over the weekend.  You all contribute such a high standard of product that the standard of the event is lifted higher each time, but it is your friendliness and customer service that keeps our customers coming back.

Some housekeeping.  The coffee and food situation was terrible.  We know.  It has been raised with the management of EPIC and they have assured us that it will be addressed.  Waiting that long for a coffee was just not viable for so many of you, and even those who were using the services of the Spare Hands girls for their coffee runs suffered with the delays.  In short – we are on it!

We had lots of positive feedback on the pop-up room, and on the fashion shoot, so will be looking at developing those themes further, and will keep you in the loop.

Applications are now open for both the September and the December markets.  Those of you who rebooked using the envelopes over the weekend do not have to fill out an application online for September, but if you want to get in early for applying for December, you can do that now.  We won’t be allocating and invoicing for the December stalls until after the September market, but showing your interest in a stall now will help us with planning.  If you didn’t use the envelope, then you can apply for September and/or December in your application.

And finally a reminder – if you are travelling here for the September markets you should book your accommodation NOW.  With Floriade on at the same time hotel and motel rooms are at a premium, and are hard to come by if you leave it until the last minute.
