With people still on holiday, Saturday was fairly quiet, however, it was still a fabulous day! Crafty people caught up with other crafty people and even made new crafting friends. It was great to see what new things people had brought along and as always, I marvel at the incredible talent Auckland has to offer, and how wonderful it is to have them at Crafternoon Tea.

Applications will be opening tomorrow for the February market, so don't wait around, get applying! Remember, that when applying, you need to make sure that what you sell is handmade by you. This is what sets us apart from other markets and retail stores, and it's something that we pride ourselves on, and are gaining a reputation for.

The newsletter is nearly finished, and should be with you all shortly, exciting stuff! If you haven't already signed up for it, then click the button on your right! We've decided to run a monthly competition in the newsletter. The winner will receive a full table (free!) at Crafternoon Tea. So, what is this amazing competition I hear you ask? Get out those crayons and felt tips, because to win this prize, you need to design the flyer for the February market.
The flyer will need to have the following details:
  • The market name
  • Physical address
  • Date and time
  • Blog address
The rest is up to you! Email all entries to: Slightly short notice on this one, we need entries in by 31st January. So what are you waiting for? Get scribbling!
We can't wait to see what you crafty people come up with!

Thanks to everyone who took the time to apply for our January market. You should receive an email shortly letting you know if you were successful.
Keep an eye out for our Who's Coming to Tea list, to check out what crafty goodies you can get for yourself this summer!
This is the first market of the year, yay! And, as always, promises to be a good one, with the talent and quality of our vendors as high as always, something that Crafternoon Tea markets are becoming known for.
We have adverts appearing in local suburban newspapers as well as World Sweet World and we'll be doing a flyer drop this week too.
Don't forget that you can help spread the word by mentioning Crafternoon Tea on your blog, downloading and printing off our flyer and handing them out in your local area and general word of mouth.

Looking forward to seeing you all this weekend!
