The Fair is tomorrow!

ONE more sleep to go!!

Remember your tiny $2 entry fee, bring some strong arms to carry all your goodies and check out our artist interviews to plan your shopping...

A secret helper... Free Shopping List Download!

Now, we know that coming to the Fair can be a little daunting (so much amazing stuff!) so that's why we have created for you a little free shopping list that you can print before you come on the day, perfect!

We always suggest to people on the day so go around and choose what they would like to buy, then come and take out the amount of Market Money that they need. Sometimes, you do have to get items on the spot (if there is only one, eek!) but sometimes you can take your time.

Use this list to jot down what you fancy, the vendor it came from and how much it is - then when you come to the Eftpos station you are all set!

It's also handy if you are sending a friend back to a table to purchase something on your behalf (see, we think of everything).

So download away, print off one (or a few) and bring it with you, along with your $2 entry fee and we will see you tomorrow!

Artist Interview: Gwyneth Hulse Design

Gwyneth Hulse Design is a boutique studio in sunny Kerikeri. A love of clean, minimalist lines and natural materials inspires my designs. All the wood I use is sourced locally in Northland and much of it is from my family farm. It all has a story. As a New Zealander I think there is something special about owning items made with native timber.

Sponsor Spotlight:

Felt will be on site on Saturday with a gorgeous gift pack to give away to one lucky visitor, including glamorous goodies to get you through the winter from Zippitydoodah, a set of Billy Goats Gruff figures from Woodbotherer for the kids (see what we did there?), a splash of sunshine from Brighton Mine and Holly Roach and fab Big Bunny seeds to ring in spring! zippitydoodah

Designer Money

Aside from the regular tried and true, age old way of paying with cash — the Fair also has a special cash out system, Market Money. Our fabulous currency has been around since our first Fair back in July 2010, but we appreciate that it's still a new concept to many people so we thought it might be nice to give you a little introduction (or re-introduction) on how it works.
