Auckland Art & Craft Fair


On the weekend I went to the Auckland Art & Craft Fair with the husband and some friends. Thousands of us crammed into the Aotea Centre and vied for position to get a chance to buy some goodies from the amazing vendors. I snapped myself up a few prints and things and got to meet so many lovely people, including Devon Smith, the lovely girls from The Yellow Brick Road (it's hard to make out in the picture but I scored myself a cute little cat ring from them. Cat lady win!), Holly McCauley from Frankie, Sophie from That Vintage as well as seeing my dear friends at Hunter Gatherer again.

Also I want to make a little shout out to Jess from Foxes for all her hard work in organising this event and for making it such a wonderful day. I had such a blast and am already looking forward to attending the next one!

Finally, I have a giveaway beginning today over on my facebook page so make sure you come join me there to be able to enter it!
