Twas nice to be at a market and be able to wander about (squish through the masses) rather than be behind the table, and what a place to do it at the awesome Auckland Art n Craft Fair yesterday!
I was so super impressed with all of the stalls - and trust me I had them covered with about 5 laps around the venue eek! But first thing in the morn I met up with my big-day-of-markets friend Gem down in the new britomart amazingness. We had a poke around the farmers market and also checked out the saturday design market at Tyler St Garage - some very snazzy goods about. Twas my first time down that area in a long time, It was gorgeous. I recommend you all to go have a squizz.
Then we mozied up to Aotea Centre for the grand event of the day the Auckland Art n Craft Fair. I spent all my moolah and had a fab time ooing and aahhing. One of the most fabulous items I saw on the day were these incredible necklaces made by Bonjour Sweetie if I remember rightly that had tiny viewmaster slides inside. Hold them up to the light and you have a little pocket of childhood memories right there. I am going to send in some of my viewmaster slides hopefully to get a custom made one.

Emily so great to officially meet you in person! and Kim too :) It is a funny thing knowing someone in blogland and then actually meeting them in person. So nice to see Luzette back again in all her colourful glory - I am in love with everything that Luu has!!! & thanks Olivia for reminding me I could actually leave and didn't need to hang out at the fair aaalll day teehee. All that perusing/shopping deserves a hearty delish lunch - YUM!
