The June Auckland Art and Craft Fair 2013

We were a proud and happy sponsor of the awesome bi-annual handmade bonanza The Auckland Art and Craft Fair just last week!

There was a long line of handmade lovers waiting for 11am to tick over. And then, all of a sudden, it was mayhem! A good mayhem. A fun and friendly and supportive mayhem.

It was a very busy month for us leading up to the event, as we really wanted our own brand, Jam Handmade, to fill up the table. It had always been one of our main goals, so it was lovely to see it come into fruition! It gave us such a kick to see people gushing over the products we had worked so hard towards, and gotta say, Sarah and I have now got a taste for it. More products and markets to come, I'm sure! 

Another thing that we really enjoyed about the fair was to see (almost all!) of our lovely suppliers in their natural habitat doing their thang; presenting their brand and networking with likeminded people. (More about these guys later *winkyface*)

We also loved seeing new products from fresh faces. It's always so inspiring! This picture is from Pietje's Cupboard:

As you can imagine from an event like this, the attendees are very stylie and creative. We also saw so many of our shop regulars! Here's some mega babes:

Over all, we had an incredibly fun day! We loved sneaking away when we could, to enjoy what our local friends have been whipping up, and celebrating New Zealand made. All 10'000 of us.

Until next time,
