Beach art, craft on dis­play at the fair

Waihi Leader - - News -

The Waihi Beach Art & Craft Fair is back again for the 14th year on Sun­day, June 3.

Or­gan­iser Collen Low says it a “must do” event dur­ing Queens Birth­day week­end.

Colleen says this year’s fair will have a large num­ber of new stalls.

“We have again pushed the boat out and have re­cruited a huge num­ber of new stall hold­ers to the fair with very ex­cit­ing and new crafts,” she says.

It is again fully booked with 85 stalls to be set up in the Waihi Beach Com­mu­nity Cen­tre.

There is some­thing for ev­ery­one from pet ac­ces­sories, de­signer jew­ellery, cloth­ing for the whole fam­ily, plus wooden items, art, pho­to­graphic prints, soaps, herbal creams, graphic art, dolls, bears and toys and shabby chic home­wares.

But there is even more Colleen says, such as can­dles and dif­fusers, trendy knit­ted gar­ments, al­paca prod­ucts and up­cy­cled art.

Food­wise, home­made pre­serves will also be in store. “So many amaz­ing all hand crafted items,” she says.

The an­nual event at­tracts over a thou­sand par­tic­i­pants on the day.

The old style cafe´ will again be run by the vol­un­teers from the Waihi Beach RSA pro­vid­ing re­fresh­ments while vis­it­ing the fair. “This is al­ways pop­u­lar and their food is great,” she says.

Colleen says what makes the event pop­u­lar is its di­ver­sity and nov­elty.

“This fair is dif­fer­ent every year so make sure you come back again and not miss all the new things and If you haven’t been be­fore time to come see the fair every one talks about,” she says.

Fair is on June 3, 10am to 3.30pm. En­try: $4.

The fair at­tracts peo­ple from the Bay.
