I meant to make this post before I went to the Melbourne Craft Show, but ran out of time. However I am determined to load it up so there may be a couple of posts over the next few days that are retrospective.
Last weekend Glenn and I went to the Bendigo Wool Show. It is at events like this that I remember that I am from the bush, not the country. In some parts of Australia, there is a big difference. It was a 15 hour round trip and we spent 3 hours there, but it was worth every second. I finally sourced a couple of products that I have been trying to lock down for a long time. I was excited. And then I came across something that really blew my mind with possibilities. I just need to put a couple of things in place before I purchase “the machine” then watch out for some truely spectacular new products.
I asked the boys, particularly the “little one”, if they would come to the show with us to see the sheep. They thought I had gone quite mad and declined to accompany me despite the valuable family time we could have had. The “little one” – Andrew – is my nearly 6 foot 15 year old who believes he is past patting sheep so I took some photos to show him what he is missing. The first photo shows a ute cover that I could not walk past. What fabulous marketing. It was not until I looked at the photo that I even knew what was being advertised.
Just for Andrew, here are the sheep and alpacas.
