Big crowd finds much to enjoy at Kmart markets

THE first Rotary Club of Gladstone Midday Markets for 2015 attracted a large crowd at the Kmart car park in Kin Kora.

Fruit, clothes, candles, plants and toys were on display at the markets from 7am-noon on Sunday.

There was even entertainment and food to keep the crowd happy.

Agapi store holders Kathy Corones and Paul Rahme were loving the atmosphere at the markets.

They had handmade body scrub, lip gloss, body mist and lotion for sale.

"We started six months ago and it's taken off like you wouldn't believe," Mrs Corones said.

Mrs Corones said she had just sent orders off to Sydney.

"A health food shop in Agnes wants to stock our product, too," she said.

Paul and three other people with disabilities own the store, passed on by Mrs Corones.
