When we commenced with Grandpa’s Toys we wanted a display to promote our products.
We contacted Blacklist Prints and Scott designed and printed a Pull up Banner for display on our table for a cost of $99 $90. All we had to do was supply the photos and logos. The fine detail which Scott has added such as the e scanner and all the details are appreciated as we were only starting out with limited knowledge.
This banner has many advantages – it is quick and easy to erect – folds neatly and stores in a bag with handles for when it is not in use – always looks very good – attracts a lot of attention to our stall and can stand upright even when the breeze is blowing through the building.
I always give other stall holders a Blacklist Prints card when I see them struggling with their inadequate banners.
There are some things that are just timeless. At Grandpa’s Toys we delight in bringing back to life quality wooden toys that you might recognise from your childhood.
The wooden washing line was one of our first products that we gave a new lease in life. Many visitors to the Rockhampton Handmade Markets stop and reminisce over the washing line and fond childhood memories. It wasn’t long before Grandpa added the washing trolley to compliment the set.
Other blasts from the pasts include the walking trolleys, cradles and ironing boards.
Have you any suggestions on what other wooden toys Grandpa can give a new lease on life? We’d love to hear from you. You can contact us via our Facebook page
Rockhampton is the cattle capital of Queensland. It makes sense then that the cattle truck is a familiar sight for the locals. At the handmade markets, Grandpa received a few inquiries about doing cattle trucks. As a proud locally owned small business. Grandpa listened and started the process of making designs for a cattle truck to add to his range.
Grandpa’s design includes engraved windows, grill and door on the cabs, down to the “Do Not Over Take Turning Vehicle” sign on the back. Each wheel is handmade.
In October 2014 Grandpa created his first B-Double trailer. Following a request for a Road Train in November 2014 Grandpa added to the range with a Cattle Road Train.
