It's been a while since the last update, we've been ridiculously busy with work and all things Christmas, as has everyone else I'm sure! The christmas market, while quieter than I hoped, (damn you Auckland weather!) was still a success for most of our vendors. The school hall proved to be a nice venue with good 'flow', even if it was logistically challenging! Time and again I could hear customers talking about the wonderful atmosphere and fantastic range of products, a great reason to be known by!
The amazing Lucy from Felt took time from her incredibly busy schedule to put together some Felt goody bags for all our wonderful vendors! Thanks Lucy, it was gratefully received by all!

Preparations are again underway for our January market. Applications are now open and we will once again be back in our regular location in Kingsland.

We have lots of exciting things planned for the new year, so bookmark or subscribe to this page and keep an eye out for the latest news and crafty happenings!

Introducing Rodayo Busk!

These super soft T shirts are hand printed with water colour ink by Auckland artist Boe Busch for her clothing label Rodayo Busk.

Each run of designs is very limited; 70 T-shirts being the largest number of any one design, so you can be sure that the T-shirt you buy is pretty special and unique.

Her t-shirts are sourced from an Auckland company who's production facilities are W.R.A.P certified, ensuring a sweatshop free product and ethical work conditions.

Meet one of Crafternoon-Tea's new regulars! Kylie from Skipapple, who makes a range of divine goodies guaranteed to catch your eye! You're bound to find some Christmas presents at this stall!

I love the coffee cozy's, headbands, necklaces, well alright, I love it all and I'm sure you will too!

Meet some of the vendors that will be at our December market and check out the amazing products that will be on offer at what is sure to be an amazing day!

Introducing Sophie Johnston.
Sophie creates these wonderful blockmounted photos that come in a variety of sizes and styles, including fridge magnets, an ideal christmas present! I love the graffiti ones!

Yes, the next Crafternoon-Tea is less than a week away! Preparations are well underway and we've been marketing like mad! Auckland weather terrifies me, so it's fingers crossed that we get loads of hot sunny weather! We managed to get our ad in the December issue of the Ponsonby News (see below), which was very exciting and will hopefully generate lots of new interest, this will be a regular thing from now on, so keep a look out for it! If you're not sure where you can get your free copy of the magazine, their website has a helpful list of all retailers, yay!

We've got lots of wonderful new vendors at the Christmas market, and I'll be doing small features on some of these, as not all of them have blogs yet. Plus we have all our wonderful regular vendors, who will also be getting a special mention. There will be lots of new and exciting things happening this weekend, so be sure to come down and check us out. Don't forget that for this month only we are in a new venue! Plus we'll be holding an extra-special Christmas Prize Draw with loads of fabulous goodies from some of our amazing vendors, more on that later!

Looking forward to see you there!
