The Great Crafternoon Tea Christmas Market!!

Thanks to everyone who came down to help celebrate Crafternoon Tea's first birthday, it was a great success!

After a lot of thought and discussion with my family, friends and wonderful crafty friends, I have decided to keep Crafternoon Tea up and running!  Yay!  However, the markets will be every second month at the moment, with special event markets taking place to coincide with the Rugby World Cup Eden Park matches (think of those people and tourists in Kingsland!) and the wonderful Kingsland Festival.  I'll put up a new calendar with market dates, once they have been confirmed.

On another note, we are not having a November market, but preparations are underway for our fantastic Christmas market!  Applications for this market will be open shortly, so keep an eye out and make sure you don't miss this event!

It's competition time!  Have you got fantastic, creative design skills?  Interested in having  a free stall, in a prime position at our Christmas market?  I need someone to design the Crafternoon Tea Christmas flyer.  The flyer will need to have:
The following title:  The Great Crafternoon Tea Christmas Market
The date and time of the market.
The address.
The blog address.
The rest is completely up to you!

I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Crafternoon Tea's birthday!

Oh my!  It's our first birthday already!!!  Where did that year go?  It really does seem like almost yesterday that I had this crazy idea to start up my very own craft market, little did I know that it would be such a great success!

I am very sad to see it go, so I might not!  After talking to lots of people, friends and family, it turns out that there's a lot of support for Crafternoon Tea, who knew?? :)  But, what I might do is change it into a bi-monthly market.  So have it every two months instead of every month, it might just make it that bit more manageable and allow Crafternoon Tea to stay alive!  What do you think?

This means that there would be no November market, but there would be the obligatory Christmas market, plus we could have special markets to coincide with special events, like the Kingsland Fair!

So perhaps a bit of good news!

Come on down to the market tomorrow, do a spot of early Christmas shopping (did I really say that??) and check out what's new!

See you all there,

Luisa :)
