Traders for Sandown - who they are and what they are doing at the show

We think it would be helpful if we give a few directions to the show as there are always new, keen paper-crafters coming along:

You'll drive into Sandown raceway (now known as Sportingbet Park) - the actual raceway is on your left as you drive along.
Go past Gate 5a and follow the "Members Carpark" sign towards your left.
You'll see Gate 3.
Go through the gate and park inside or alternatively you may park outside of Gate 3 in the other parking bays.
The show is in the Vintage Room which is the large cream-coloured building with the green ramp and brown awnings over the bay windows.
We'll have balloons along the route to help you.
