We will be at all of the markets in Ipswich, Forest Hill and Toowoomba with The Handmade Expo this year. We truly love this market and these three venues and wouldn’t miss them. The market turns 10 in August!
There will be other markets that we will attend throughout the year and the best place to stay up to date with things is via our facebook page.
This Sunday you will find our little Addicted to Buttons shop popping up in Toowoomba at Queen’s Park Markets. Come along wander and shop the stalls under the trees. Lots to see, do and plenty of buttons to be found. Open 8am – 1pm on Sunday.
One of my favourite spots for a day trip in south east Queensland is Mt Tamborine.
A beautiful bushwalk with my husband and children through lush rainforest and past idyllic waterfalls, followed by lunch at one of the many cafes and then an afternoon poking through art galleries and craft shops is, for me, the perfect day. In fact I think I’ve just described the perfect Mother’s Day for many Queensland mums (feel free to drop some hints around this idea to your hubby if nothing else has been planned for this Sunday!)
Addicted to Buttons will join 50 other artisans and handmade crafters at this three day event from this Friday May 9 – through to Mothers Day on Sunday, May 11. There is ample parking, a café, EFTPOS facilities and the event raises funds in support of the Mt Tamborine Rural Fire Brigade.
We have been busy in the Button Room creating … we have finished off some gorgeous Resin Button Creations – necklaces that are entirely handmade – unique resin buttons that are simply yummy! You can find these and loads more button necklaces and button creations in our online store HERE.
