Happy Second Anniversary BrisStyle

Surely it can't be two years since twelve brave little Brisbane Etsy sellers met at the Avid Reader Cafe to form a local support group.  Today, with our membership passing the 130 mark, we are truly a force to be reckoned with.

Committee members from left:  Rebecca, Helen and Samantha

Where else would you rather be on a warm and balmy Saturday than sitting on the front verandah of this heritage listed building?

Lunch of delicious (and plentiful!) wraps, salads and fresh tropical fruit were washed down with chilled apple juice and beautiful coffee.

Helen has the photography technique down to a fine art - look at the expert hand placement.

I had to leave before the gift swap took place, but I am sure there will be many happy faces tonight if previous swaps are anything to go by.

So a hearty congratulations to all BrisStylers, old and new.  We have come a long way and the year ahead looks very exciting, with markets and social events to fill just about every need.

That's an amazing get together. Looks everybody enjoys the moment.

I drools with all the fruits, the apple juice and the heat of the sun.

Happy w/end.

Looks like it was so much fun and delicious too!
I love your banner-what is that is in the vase? I don't recognize those little yellow orbs. They remind me of Gooseberries, but they can't be. Nor can they be kumquats?
