Introducing... The Auckland Art & Craft Fair

Sunday, April 25, 2010

Hey lovely people, you may have heard via the Auckland Craft Collective site, or Facebook and Twitter that the Craft Collective (aka Kylie and Me...) that we will be having the very first ever Auckland Art & Craft Fair on the 24th July this year!

The Auckland Art & Craft Fair isn't like any other market available in Auckland or even the rest of New Zealand. It's the first of it's kind and will have a regular home at the prestigious Auckland Art Gallery. With a focus on each Fair having a selection of New Zealands best contemporary and independent Designers, Artists and Crafters available, selling their wares direct to the public for one day only.

This is a fair with a difference — focusing on the best that each vendor has to offer, highlighting the quality, craftsmanship and ingenuity of each piece. For the customer it's shopping with soul, purchasing direct from the artist, designer and maker in one go and helping support our growing industry.

There'll be no worries on the day for customers as there will be EftPos facilities along with everything that the Auckland Art Gallery has to offer including Reuben Cafe and the amazing Parsons bookshop, not to mention all the exhibitions at the gallery — so something for everyone. Saturday $4 parking is available for vendors and visitors that use the Victoria Street Car Park with a special discount voucher from the gallery and with the Fair being held inside, it will be lovely and cosy for our guests.

Anyway, it's pretty darn exciting! If you want to find out more, check out the blog and if you fancy being a vendor — apply! Applications close at 4pm on Friday 14th May 2010...

Exciting!! xx
