New Zealand Showcase: Encraftment Market

via Encraftment Market
To market, to market...where should we go today? Well I don’t know about today, but I do know about November 29th! Our lovely artist, Bryony, of Crazybird Designs tipped us off that the Christmas Encraftment Market, held in Christchurch is a not-to-miss event.  (I can’t believe that we’re already talking about Christmas...120 days and counting!)

Encraftment Market was founded just after the Christchurch earthquakes, in May 2011. What began as an “outlet for many artisans who had lost their regular points of sale,” is now a very popular semi-annual market that thousands of people attend to shop quality handmade items, sample scrumptious goodies and sip on delicious beverages.

The vast selection of stallholders guarantees attendees an exceptional selection of crafts and design. Furthermore, the market’s standards of excellence ensure truly outstanding craftsmanship and uniqueness. Indeed, Encraftment Market is the place to “shop for fresh, local handmade craft and design.”

If past markets are any indication, their upcoming Christmas market looks to be absolutely stellar. Now we just need to purchase our plane ticket to New Zealand...
