Katikati Advertiser - - Your Community Voice -

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.

GROUP mem­bers Carol Ma­son and multi me­dia artist Paulette Robin­son, with fig­urines cre­ated to go out­side the Arty Tarts new store.
