To market

It's the business end of the year, with markets popping up like mushrooms. This week I've been contacted about two new markets in Auckland, so thought I'd better let you know about them. Both are looking for sellers of high-quality handmade items. While I'm talking of markets, the mother of them all, Kraftbomb, is turning one this Sunday. To celebrate and cope with demand, they're opening a 2nd room this month. Hope to see you there!

The Ruby Square Market will be held on Saturday 31st October, 14th November, 5th December, 12th December. "The concept behind this market is to provide a range of products that are original, stylish and of a premium quality. We envisage the products offered for sale will range from items designed and made in New Zealand to quality imported items.There will be a variety of stalls ranging from homeware, clothing, accessories, textiles, and craft from designers, artists, retailers and crafters." It will be held at the Greyfriars Church Hall, 544 Mt Eden Road, Mt Eden. The contact person is Debbie van Dijk.

The Royal Oak Market is hosted by CCS Disability Action, a not-for-profit organisation which supports people with disabilities. "The Royal Oak Market - building sustainable communities - will be held on 22 November 2009 at 14 Erson Avenue, Royal Oak. It will be a melting pot for the community, incorporating artisan products, fresh local produce together with craft, art, fashion and design. We are interested in providing a venue for innovative makers of contemporary craft, design, art and fashion to sell their work. The market will be held once each season and will include an inside area specifically for craft, design, art and fashion as well as stalls for fresh local produce, food and other products. We expect that there will be a wide range of customers so you will have the opportunity to sell your work to a whole new audience." Contact Linda Blair for more information.
