Posted on by Rhapsody Design

A BIG thank you to all those who visited the NOT A TOY stall at the recent Canberra Brick Expo, it was yet again a crazy and clever celebration of LEGO® love. We truly appreciate all those involved... the organisers, volunteers, exhibitors, vendors and brick building enthusiasts.

Fortunately, you won’t have time to miss us too much, there is not a long wait until the Spring Handmade Market event on September Saturday 10 and Sunday 11, from 10am – 4pm at the Exhibition Park in Canberra. Convenient one stop Christmas shopping [it's less than 150 days away, you know?] so be sure to save the date!

Thank you to all those who swung by the Rhapsody Design stall at the Handmade Market at Exhibition Park in Canberra last month. If you couldn't make it, there's always the next event December 12 & 13, so pencil it in on the calendar. With over 200 stalls, it is the convenient one-stop Christmas shopping experience. What could spread more festive cheer than investing in Australian independent design for your loved ones, hmmm?!

If you can't wait that long for your fix, the Handmade Shop in the city is open six days for your daily handmade needs ;)

Did you know that the Handmade Market will be at a different destination this year? That's right! The Handmade Market has relocated to the Budawang Building, Exhibition Park in Canberra

Fear not. Everything that’s made you heart handmade will be back; 150+ stalls of handmade goodness, the opportunity to meet the clever creatives behind the designs, a celebration of Australian independent designers, a place to feel inspired… and generally just a great excuse to get out and about in the nation's capital with friends and/or family. 104.7's Skyfire will also be lighting up the city skies Saturday evening, with it’s annual fireworks show held over Lake Burley Griffin.

Most importantly... Two days of shopping – THIS Saturday and Sunday, 10am to 4pm – there will be plenty of handmade goodness for all. See you there, @ stall 57.
