Even more markets...

There's some more craft market goodness about. Going by their blogs, the latest two are both possibly more in the Kraftbomb/Craftwerk genre, using words like 'funky' and 'alternative' to describe themselves.

Crafternoon Tea is on Saturday, 17 Oct in Kingsland. Times are 10 to 2 and tables are very cheap: $20 for full and $10 for half.

Love Handmade Craft Market is on Saturday, 14 Nov in Takapuna, 9 to 12.

That's all I know; check out the blogs for more information.

Vintage Textile Fair


It's time for the annual Auckland Vintage Textile Fair! It's a huge market where you can find treasures like vintage clothing (think feathers and beads), fabric, buttons, and all sorts of beautiful things under one roof. It was so popular last year, they got themselves a new venue. Here's the details:

This coming Sunday, 13 Sept , 10-5pm
$5 admission
Alexandra Park Raceway (corner of Greenlane & Manukau Rd, Epsom)

Lucky Penny Two (no cheesy pictures this time!)

Last night was our second Lucky Penny... on the first day of Spring.

In typical Anna-style I was dashing from one creative venture to the next, and somehow missed about half of those who had turned up due to my lateness. Oops! (So much for being a good organiser...)
Mezze Bar was quite busy that night and this time we had got ourselves a table in the midst of it all. Lucky Penny people are quite easy to spot... keep an eye out for yarn, crafty books, and an occasional project... So I was joined by co-organiser Heleen, Bron from Ran with Scissors, Helene who knits plus some new faces ...for coffee/wine/craft/chat/nibbles- yay! Lots of inspiration abound.

Cos that's what Lucky Penny is all about. Catch the next Lucky Penny on Tuesday 6th October, same place, same time.
