Steady times for exhibitors

EXHIBITOR Faren Munro was happy with the interest his indigenous artefacts attracted at AgroTrend last week.

"It was pretty steady," Mr Munro, of Jin Jin Burra Aboriginal Artefacts, said.

"There didn't seem to be as many people as last year, but it was very steady.

"It was good we were there."

Mr Munro said his main aim was not necessarily to sell his artefacts, but to promote indigenous culture.

"We design and manufacture things like boomerangs and didgeridoos," he said.

"We also have other people who do paintings on canvas."

Mr Munro said a large focus of Jin Jin Burra was on interacting with schools.

"We do a lot of activities with schools to promote indigenous culture," he said.

Margaret Kelly, who makes outfits, such as coats, hats and booties, for dogs, also said she felt the crowds were down this year.

Ms Kelly said she had been going to AgroTrend for five years.

"I think people just didn't have any money after the Easter long weekend," she said.
