What a day we had at the Devonport Craft Market! What a wonderful turnout! What a great day for Christmas Shopping!

We estimated over 1000 shoppers were out in force and they were treated to spectacular goodies from the 52 spectacularly talented stallholders.

The Devonport Craft Market Calendars (downloadable version to be uploaded shortly!) went down a treat, as did the Prize Draws. We need to send a massive thanks to the sellers who contributed product to the Prize Draws, without you this wouldn’t have happened and we had lots of very hopeful and very excited buyers wishing their’s was the golden ticket.
The winners of the draws were:
Prize One: Renee from Takapuna
Prize 2: Sharon from Ellerslie
Prize 3: Jane from Devonport.
Congratulations and enjoy your handmade products!

Plunket held court in the Fundraising Kitchen and they were really pleased with their day too. We were really happy to support such a worthy cause, and that spiced apple cake with custard…. YUM

The Devonport Craft Market takes a different tack for December. We are part of the Devonport Christmas Festival and we will be running a mini market on Windsor Reserve, which will start at 10 and finish at 3pm. The Lions Santa Parade which is the main event, kicks off at 11am down Victoria Road and  Dance in the Park starts shortly afterwards on Windsor Reserve. There will be lots of other food, fun and entertainment to enjoy so make sure you put the date in your diary and come on down. We will bring you more information before the day.

Thank you again to everyone who came along to the Christmas Spectacular Market and supported your local handmade crafty makers and sellers.
