Auckland Art & Craft Fair

Yesterday was the second Auckland Art & Craft Fair, which if you follow my blog you know I was supposed to be partaking in but had to pull out of (sulk).  Anyway, I put my big girl panties on and hopped on the bus to go check out what I was missing.

I ran into a friend there and got so wrapped up in things that I of course forgot to take photos.  I did however swipe a business card from everyone that I admired.

You also probably know how broke I am, so it was somewhat torturous, although I did lay down a whole $3 for this bookmark from Honey Design:

Some of the other wonderful vendors were:

 I also got to meet the lovely Jessica from Foxes, at whose table I was ogling the wonderful work of Devon Smith:

It was a nice big space, plenty of room for everyone, vendors and customers alike.  I was very impressed with the quality of goods for sale!  I'll definitely be hanging onto those business cards for when I start receiving a paycheck. 

I hope it was a very successful day for everyone involved, I heard that the next fair is planned for May 2011, so maybe I will have quit sulking and figured out how to source supplies and wrangled with my other artistic crises in time for that one...


  1. Hi, It was a good idea to go, I always feel that one is doing what one is supposed to be doing at the time, maybe this is a time of rest for you, to gather new ideas etc, and when the time is right and you have all your resources gathered, you will create wonderful masterpieces again. Cheers Marie

  2. Looks awesome Averil, thanks for sharing the links! Maybe you'll be there in 2011;)

  3. Good for you for taking the time to investigate the event!! it's good to do a little reconnaissance and research into venues to insure if they are a good fit for you and your beautiful wares =-)

    I hope you are still practicing your paintings of your lovely 'girlies'! That is something I'm sure you can sell at the next event in May...

  4. looks cool- i hope you're in it next year!
