As many of you know, it was the Auckland Marathon yesterday as well as our first of the month Devonport Craft Market. One of our amazing regular stallholders, Hayley (Blankies), managed to not only run the full marathon but she made it down to the market to take over from her husband selling her wares. She's pictured here a little tired but still smiling, holding her rather impressive medal.
I wish we had thought ahead enough to make her a special market medal too. You definately deserve a Gold medal for Determination in Crafting when you run a marathon and then turn up at the market afterwards. Congratulations Hayley!
Another impressive feat of crafting determination was performed by Roslyn of Beinzstalk who was at the venue around 4.30am so that she could avoid the road closures and be set up in time. Thanks so much for making such an effort Roslyn!
And lastly but not leastly... thank you to the two wonderful ladies from Felt and Black Swan Designs, who flew up from Christchurch to exhibit at yesterdays market. It was great to have you there.
There's another Devonport Craft Market just around the corner. The next one is our big Christmas Spectacular on Sunday 15th November 10am-3pm. Its a fantastic place to come along to do your Christmas shopping. We'll have a prize draw and giveaways too so well worth the trip. We'll be posting photos of the contents of the hamper soon so watch this space.
See you soon!
