Moss­man mini-expo to shine

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - BUSINESS - AN­GELIQUE PAT­TER­SON

THE Hop To It Moss­man Small Busi­ness Expo is back again and will show­case goods and ser­vices from around the re­gion.

The expo has re­turned to Moss­man af­ter a two-year hia­tus and is a good op­por­tu­nity for small busi­nesses to get out and net­work.

Or­gan­iser Maria Can­ton, di­rec­tor of De­signed To Please Busi- ness Ser­vices, said spa­ces are still avail­able for more busi­nesses to get in­volved.

“It’s a mini-expo for the lo­cals and we’re invit­ing lo­cals and small busi­nesses as well as bring­ing some busi­nesses from Cairns and Ma­reeba,” she said.

“It’s a way for small busi­nesses to ex­pose them­selves to lo­cals and there are no two busi­nesses that are sim­i­lar or sell sim­i­lar prod­ucts and that way ev­ery­one gets a fair go.

“We did one in Moss­man two years ago and that was our first one and it was so well re­ceived we’ve been do­ing it around small towns - we’ve done a full cir­cle to come back to Moss­man and I’m look­ing for­ward to it.

“Last time we came we had 11 stalls and this time round we are hop­ing to have 15, it’ll be great and I’ve in­vited lo­cal small busi­nesses.”

There will be cloth­ing stalls, home­wares, jew­ellery, beauty prod­ucts and toy stalls and the or­gan­is­ers are cur­rently ar­rang­ing en­ter­tain­ment to keep the chil­dren busy - and the adults as well.

“We will have lucky door prizes and some of the stalls will have prizes and com­pe­ti­tions of their own,” Ms Can­ton said.

“The stalls are al­lowed to take or­ders and sell so any­one who wants to buy some­thing on the day are able to.”

It is free en­try for the public and for stall hold­ers who want to get in­volved con­tact Maria Can­ton on 0404 065 448, stalls cost only $30 and $5 from that will go to­wards a lo­cal char­ity, cho­sen on the day.

The Hop To It Moss­man Small Busi­ness Expo will be from 10am to 3pm on March 31 at the Moss­man Bowls Club.
