a giveaway

As an extension to birthday celebrations we made our way to the titirangi markets this morning. It's my favourite place to buy handmade, you get a chance to buy directly from the makers and I love that. I didn't take my camera with me so I can't show you all the stalls bursting with beautiful handmade things, or the excitement from my little one at the "bubble wand" stall. So instead of photos I'm offering this little ceramic tiki to a lucky reader. Just leave a comment and let me know your favourite place to buy handmade. I'll draw a name by random this time next week (Sunday NZ time). I must say that the best part of the day was crossing a few names off the Christmas list, in September!

and the winner is.... the power of me. Thanks to everyone who took the time to comment.


  1. Hi
    Love your things and your blog. One of my friends bought your gorgeous upcycled leather jacket handbag off Felt which is how I found your blog. My favourite place to buy handmade? I'm slightly biased but my favourite place to buy handmade things is The Devonport Craft Market. After that it would be tie between Kraftbomb and Felt.

  2. I love to buy handmade things I find at the thrift store

  3. what a gorgeous tiki!
    you must count me out of the giveaway, as you've sent me such lovely things already. but i love the green ceramic-ness of the pendant. :)

  4. Someday I hope to visit your beautiful country. I am enjoying reading your blog, which I discovered by the links in "tiny happy"

    There are many places where I enjoy buying handmade things - I think that my favorite is the Oregon Country Fair.
    But since that is only one weekend of the year, my second favorite is to buy (or trade) with my crafty friends.
