are you ready to SHOP?? SHOP Handmade all year round??!!

Greetings all,
Super exciting behind the scenes snaps at Shop Handmade, which is opening on Friday 16th April!!  I was allowed in, because i have a clue with an Allen key & BYO power drills.  So this is what i can show you so far . . .(please excuse my 9a.m. photos on an overcast morning) . . . coming soon posters teasing the foot traffic . . .
the totally ace 'point of sale counter' . . .
mannequins waiting for a makeover in the large Shop windows & tables ready for products . . .
Shop Handmade on City Walk Civic, opposite the Myer corner of the Canberra Centre . . .
near these stairs, Design a Bunch Florist & Sour Cherry cafe & the casino . . . oh how i'd love to paint a giant Shop Girl & arrow on these stairs!!

If you want to have your handmade products in a beautifully laid out store with happy, friendly & informed handmade loving staff, where you lease a shelf & receive 100% of your sales in the Shop, join in the amazing Shop Handmade - the retail Shop spin off the amazing super popular quarterly Handmade Market which has an incredible reputation & following.  Email Julie & Rachel at Shop Handmade for details NOW.  Prices are as low as $25 per week, incredible, the foot traffic is brilliant, but Shop Handmade will soon become a destination shopping experience.  Don't delay & miss out, it's an awesome opportunity.  Love Posie
EDIT: i should further add, interstate handmade designers are welcome at Shop Handmade, you don't have to be a Handmade Market stall designer to apply.  It's a neat way for you to tap into the faithful following the Handmade Market has, without living or doing the market here in Canberra. 
Spaces include rack/ wall/ table top/ shelves/ cubes/ floor & Shop window options!!  Ask for the Designers' Policy, it's so clear, comprehensive & fabulously well written, gosh, what super clever person wrote that i wonder??
