Maker-Helper

So as part of the amazing 10th Fair rebrand that has been happening, I am putting together a fantastic online resource for makers! Part of the reason why I wanted to create the Fair in the first place was to help my fellow makers by giving them a quality platform in which to sell their goods. To lift up their brand and show the consumer that handmade is a quality you can’t replicate, there is a whole lot of skill that goes into a handmade item and it’s a pretty admirable process.

Little Lot

We love new supporters! And Little Lot is probably the best kind of support we could ask for. Little Lot is a way to advertise to people, while being a rad person and giving something back to the people that need it most. They’re a clever bunch that help charities doing amazing things both here and abroad. And giving, is simple.READ MORE

New Digs

I am terrible at keeping secrets. If I have good news, I absolutely have to tell people right away…. So, the Auckland Fair is very, very pleased to announce that we have a new home! As you may know, we started at the Auckland Art Gallery with just 30 vendors, with queues down the street, we moved to the Aotea Centre which has been the home of the Fair for the past few years. While this was a beautiful space, with the Fair growing so much each time with visitor volumes and at our maximum for vendors, it’s now time to move into the next stage of the event.

Movings & Shakings…

There are some exciting movings and shakings happening at the Auckland Art & Craft Fair in the lead up to the TENTH event!

The biggest change is that I am now running the Fair on my own. Kylie is no longer part of the Fair as she has decided to invest more of her time into her own projects. She is also looking forward to an exciting overseas trip again soon with her partner. Of course, I wish her all the best in whatever she decides to do next, you know it’s going to be exciting!
