Hi all,

An exciting addition to this years AusBonsai Market will be an auction at 11am. Lots of high quality material will be for sale and there is no buyers premium. The price you bid at the fall of the hammer is what you will pay to the seller.

22 tables booked and some very interesting material will be available.

Regards,
Steven

Hi all,

I’m downsizing so I’ll be there and have a lot of high quality handmade pots for sale.
I will be selling a lot of very beautiful hand-made pots by Pat Kennedy, Marie Hewartson, Penny Davis and some Tokoname pots too.

I’ll also be selling trees in order to downsize my collection.

We are planning on moving and I just have far too many trees and pots.

No, not this time Bodhi. Margrit is having some trouble fitting a holiday in around the bonsai appointments this year but I'm sure she will manage a short trip to some beach somewhere ;)
I'll be heading home after a day at Wauchope Bonsai Workshop Group - Demo and Workshop the day before.
If I had checked the dates I could have booked the later flight and had most of the day in Sydney and plenty of time to get out to the Ausbonsai market site and back :tounge:

Now - Back on topic for KCAR :!:
:roll: ;)

2 and a half weeks to go until the AusBonsai Market. We have one sales table still available.

The auction at 11am will have some great items for sale with very low reserves.

This year there will be a BBQ running all day for anyone to purchase from. All proceeds raised will go directly to the Metabolic Clinic at The Westmead Children's Hospital at Westmead.

Regards,
Steven

Hi all,

Only 1 week to go until the AusBonsai Market. The excitement is building and the sellers are putting the final touches on their trees, pots and items for sale.

Last year there was over 1000 bonsai and 600 pots for sale. We are expecting similar quantities again this year.

We have had one seller pull out due to ill health so please let me know if anyone would like take up the opportunity.

Regards,
Steven
