The Market.

I feel like I have so many things to share.. but breath.. one at a time.

First of all- The Auckland Art and Craft Fair was a roaring success! There were people queuing to get into to see our bits (hehe), the layout and lighting was beautiful I thought- not to stark and not to dark, the talented crafters and artists there really blew my mind and I wished I didn't have rent to pay!

I wheeled my stuff down from my place on K. Rd in a Auckland Airport trolley we found on the street about a week ago- the wheels weren't the best but I made it and I even brought my bike lock to keep the trolley safe till the end of the market! Moron I know. My boss came to visit and couldn't stop laughing at me!

I treated myself to only 2 things, actually 3 (one was a gift for a friend that I've decided I love too much so will replace!) but I'll show you those later. For now- some pictures (mostly taken by my good friend, Jorge Ocampo) of the market for those who couldn't make it!







The talented two that put the market together. Thank you so so much Jess and Kylie.

Oh V n' B, how I want that lovely striped jumper!


Packing up.


My neato friends who came and helped me on the day, two near and two far. Thanks guys!

Thanks to lovely Jess I got to go to B Fm with her on Friday to blabber on about the market. The podcast is here if you'd like to hear us!

Lastly! Jess gave me some great news yesterday- I was voted 'Best Stall' at the market and won one of the amazing Frankie prize packs. Hoorah! Thanks Frankie and thank you to everyone who voted for my table! I'm so grateful and feeling very chuffed.


Most of all thanks to everyone who came to the market and a special thank you to everyone who bought something from me. My flatmates also thank you especially as I can now pay my rent!
