Thanks for your support Justine and for all the Brisbanites out there be sure to mark 4 July in your diary and we'll see you at St Augustine's Church Hall, Racecourse Road, Hamilton for a huge day of shopping!

Liesa from The Handmade Expo has taken the retail plunge and is opening Handmade Heaven, a shop selling handmade items in Ipswich. Handmade Heaven can be found at Shop #11, The Old Flour Mill, 231 Brisbane Street, Ipswich.

Handmade Heaven will be stocking the wares of BrisStylettes Christine from whynotstreet and Miriam from Bubbachenille.

Not only are Pedrosprout booties super cute but they're also made from Kunin Eco-fi felt, a high quality polyester fibre made from 100% certified recycled plastic bottles. You've gotta love retail therapy that's good for the environment!
