On this page, you can see some facts and figures from the 2015 year. We’re delighted to tell you that these figures are already out of date, with crowds bigger and more money spent on Australian businesses every market. We regularly welcome over 20,000 people. Handmade is growing in strength and popularity because it appeals to local and interstate design lovers and gourmet enthusiasts.
