Gidget goes Ga-Ga for BrisStyle!

It’s United Nations Day on the 24th of this month. It’s the International Year of the Potato this year, as declared by the United Nations. How does this relate to BrisStyle you may well ask? Well, it doesn’t really except for the fact that potatoes are a popular vegetable and most BrisStyle members likely eat them on a fairly regular basis. When I think of potatoes I think of chips. Hot chips. With fish. Yes, fish & chips on the beach! So this post will feature a selection of BrisStyle seller items that fit in with the theme of sunny days on the beach eating fish & chips. So you see, there is a link to potatoes after all that. Phew! Lucky my first thoughts were of chips and not mashed potatoes. That would be a tricky theme to work with…

Little Portrait of a SURFER GIRL - Art Print


Northern Waters Wolf Brooch

Haven’t seen any wolves on any of the beaches I frequent, but sure wish I did. They’d chase away those pesky Ibis birds that are so fond of rudely stealing my lunch!


Pink Sun Top


Prime Minister Kevin Rudd

I swear I saw our PM Kev on the beach recently. Or somebody who looked remarkably like him. He was wearing speedos. And it wasn’t pretty.

If you fancy purchasing any of the super items featured here, then simply click on the seller name to be transported to their Etsy shop. Best of all, in celebration of United Nations Day this month, if you purchase any of these items during October, a bucket load of good karma will be headed your way. That good karma will also extend to the purchase of any item from any BrisStyle member by the way. There’s plenty of good karma to go around! And chips! Would you like one? Ooops…too late. All gone.

Super summery items! Well I do eat potatoes and yep chips are my favourite too :)

Oh I wish I could get the vision of our PM in his speedos out of my head. I find it hard enough to pay attention to his boring voice. Now how am I going to be able to concentrate on his political blah blah without that vision coming back to haunt?

I hope you can recover for seeing such a sight at the beach. Is that why you fell on your butt and squashed a jelly fish? I'm sure I read that somewhere on someone's blog?

Hi everybody,

I have just discovered Becky's blog whilst browsing the internet and sell on Etsy too, although, unfortunately, I don't enough time to dedicate myself fully to it.

I am so excited to know that there are other artisans and Etsy sellers so close to me in
Brisbane.

I was curious about the market that you are having in Clayfield in November. Are you allowing other Etsy sellers to sign up too?

Look forward to hearing from you and keeping up with your blog.

I just love Wicked Kevin - can't imagine him on the beach though. In budgie smugglers? Nah!
