I have just got back from a busy weekend in Melbourne. It's hard to believe, but in the retail world, Christmas is nigh!! The venue for this trade show, at Melbourne's Royal Exhibition Building, is pretty hard to beat. You can take a break from the busy-ness of the show floor whilst gazing at the loveliness of this beautiful old building.
It wasn't all work and no play - I combined the gift fair with a lovely family weekend. To celebrate my parents 50th wedding anniversary, my brother, sister & I, plus partners, decided that a family excursion to Australia would be nice, and so off we all went. A great excuse for some fab Melbourne dining, shopping, and we didn't even have any major tiffs!
Without giving too many secrets away, I think I may have found a few treats that would be very nice in your Christmas stockings this year... Ho Ho Ho
