Today I went off to a craft market in Forest Hill, a little town in the Lockyer Valley about a half hour's drive from Ipswich. The market was a first for the town and was organized by the ladies who run The Handmade Expo here in Ipswich. Sadly, I forgot my camera and since I didn't buy anything either,I have no gorgeous photos to show. (Actually I did buy some home-baked goodies but the evidence has been consumed).
The craft was lovely but most stallholders were aiming for the young mum category. Since that's a long way in the past for me and my only grandchild is a teenager, I wasn't tempted to spend.
I took the opportunity however, to call in at Mimmi's in Forest Hill, a cute shop with handmade stuff, vintage collectables and revamped furniture. Lots of goodies but nothing that begged to come home with me, although I think I will have to revisit regularly.
