New location for artisans
Arty Tarts, a new arts and crafts store, opens in the heart of Katikati tomorrow.
Thanks to support from the local community the former Katikati Arts, Crafts andMural shop hasmoved to a new location in Cherry Court and launches tomorrow with a new name.
Since the newswent out that Katikati Arts, Crafts & Muralsmight have to close its doors in the Talisman Centre, members have been blown away by the support and concern received from caring locals.
The group is excited to announce the search for new premises has been successful.
Cherry Court offered a fantastic space for the artisans. The move to this new location will be completed by today, and tomorrow everyone iswelcome to come and see the bright and cheerful space.
With a new shop comes a new name. Look out for their signage— Arty Tarts.
There was a lot of brain storming followed by a lot of discussion at the name choice, but in fact theword “tart” is an old English form of affection, a shortened form of sweetheart. Arty Tarts creates a bit of fresh fun for a fresh new new start.
Themove has created opportunity for two new Arty members to the co-op - Ray Zander and his quality woodware, and Sue McDougallwith her funky jewellery.
The shopwill still stock old favourites, like quality original art, greenstone, sewing, baby knits, pottery, and a wide range of haberdashery items.
Arty Tarts opens tomorrow in Cherry Court at 10am, so do pop in and say hello.
