Unique handmade treasures at Berhampore School Knack Market

Unique handmade treasures on offer at Berhampore School Knack Market

If you are on the hunt for unique treasures for your home and family, drop by the Autumn Knack Market this weekend at Berhampore Primary School.

The quarterly event, which has gained a reputation as the best little school handcraft market in Wellington, is being held this Friday night and throughout the day on Saturday.

The market offers a crafty assortment of fantastic, original, handmade goodness. From arty and twinkly to snuggly and tasty, recycled, retro, vintage and brand new – there will be a range of tempting treats to suit every shopper – all made right here in New Zealand.

Goodies on offer include distinctive cushions, lampshades, wall art, tea towels, candles and soaps for your home alongside bags, clothing and accessories, toys, notebooks and jewellery for you, your friends and family. If you’re a maker or lover of interesting and unusual things, this craft market is for you.

Enjoy the home baking, coffee and live music while you peruse the one-of-a-kind products on offer at a fraction of the price of a mainstreet store.

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach.
