Makers Market Weekend


Looking out from the back of my stall at the beginning of the Fruit Bowl Craft Jam, aka the Makers Market last weekend. It was held in the open plaza space betwwen the Hawkes Bay Opera House and Opera Kitchen cafe. A great venue and a really enjoyable community event. The locals supported it well with a constant stream of people who enjoyed the wonderful array of quality hand made crafts, excellent coffee and food and entertaining buskers.

I managed to get a few photos of one or two stalls:


Jess and Jo organised the event and Jo even managed to set up her stall to display and sell her wares.

Iris from Secret Garden Crafts makes the most beautiful spun wool creatures and further down the line is Jessica of Furchin who is featured in the latest issue of Extra Curricular.
The most amazing wallpapers were displayed alongside Liz's carnival fan magnets.
After the two day event, the only thing that we could possibly eat for dinner was Pipi pizza and next to perfection it was. Anything in a box this pink just had to be good.
