We went to the supershow in Sydney on Saturday.
We got there on opening to avoid crowds and were gone by 2.00pm and trying to get out through the Anaconda display walkways was a nightmare with soooo many people trying to walk through, you couldn't really stop and look as the crowd was like a rip and you just got towed through (prams constantly hitting my heels
) But we were lucky enough to have a look through on a way in when hardly anyone was there and all we did was come back and buy what we had picked out on the way back to the carpark so we didn't have to lug it around all day but even that was hard going with the crowds.
Very excited to meet Ian at Customline and check out their modifications on the 2010 model and have a quick chat. Always nice to put a face to the name. And hopefully helped him make a sale!! We had to call back a second time because the first time he was with a prospective customer and when we came back 45mins later they were STILL there asking questions so we just excused ourselves and thanked Ian, answered more of their questions for another 10 mins and we had to go, so hopefully he got a sale after so much hard work.
Got a few bargains like those Flexi-lids you were talking about Gypsy. They are great and I think I have an order form at home that may have their website on it. Will have a look and post it up if there is one. 5 lids for $20 with 2 smaller ones thrown in for free!!!!
Got a cup holder from the Customline display that hooks onto the awning spreader bar and you can hang cups, teatowels etc for $15.
Two blankets for the girls to put in their swags from Anaconda for $15 each (great for a double size, cheaper than Best & Less by $10!!!)
Hubby got some of that black matting that goes on the BBQ to keep it clean while cooking and also got a couple of camping books and some maps.
Also got a pamphlet from Complete Campsite to order their canvas bag for the bed, it is a fantastic idea and heaps better than trying to tarp up the mattress when packing up in the wet!!http://www.completecampsite.com.au/canopyoptions.php
Entered EVERY competition we could find also!!!!!! Now hoping for some of markcrooks luck
