To market, to market....

Looking to get your Christmas shopping all wrapped up? The Christmas Encraftment Market is this Saturday and is the perfect opportunity to support talented local craftspeople and finish your Christmas shopping.

I'll be there will my usual range of Japanese paper jewellery, Scrabble jewellery and butterfly frames. If you're really stuck and not sure what Great Aunty Dot would get the most enjoyment from, I'll also have gift vouchers for sale (in $15, $25 and $35 amounts), so she can browse my online store at her leisure.

With over 80 craft stalls including my favourites Black Swan Designs, Mudbird, Sailor Spy, Relique, In My Backyard, Honey and Spice, Rose In Thorns and Sly Fox Jewellery there'll be no shortage of amazing products, and the live music and yummy food will keep the whole family happy!

When: This Saturday, November 26, 10am - 3pm
Where: Christchurch Girl's High School Gym, 10 Matai Street, Riccarton, Christchurch 
Why: Because supporting local small businesses and shopping for awesome, unique gifts is fun!

Fair goodies

Craft2.0 went off with a bang last weekend. It was truly a fabulous day - the new venue was great and people were happy, chatty and lovely. I met some sellers I hadn't had the opportunity to meet before and it was probably the most fun I've ever had at a fair, and a really nice weekend overall. Thanks to everyone who came along and to Sue and her team for yet another great fair.

Above are all the goodies I bought on the day (some for me, some for gifts):
  1. The Squid and the Whale print by my fair neighbour Chris Waind 
  2. A copper brooch by Jewellery By Tanz
  3. Little birdie earrings, also by Jewellery By Tanz
  4. Green and blue drop earrings by Random Little Things
  5. An amazing Felt Ring Box by my other fair neighbour, Katy of Threadmark
Oh, and I also bought a couple of these delicious Gourmet Caramel Apples by Smash Palace, but they didn't stand a chance with my sweet tooth!
