Vintage Market Day at Alberton

Rendell McIntosh from Alberton

Auckland has the green light to go into level one and our first big spring/summer event at Alberton is our VINTAGE MARKET DAY taking place in two weeks on Sunday 18 October Whoop!

Not a huge market but very cool for anyone into antique, vintage and retro rummaging to shop in our historic setting! There will be nearly nearly 20 established dealers and expert fossickers, with beautifully curated stalls of antique linen, fine china tea sets, jewellery & acessories, kitchen & tableware, vintage clothing and haberdashery, vinyl records and more.

Learn how to refresh old furniture with a lick of paint with Julie from Troupes & Wyatt who will be demonstrating with Fusion Mineral Paints. Special guest nonagenarian eggcup collector Johnny Green will also be on site all day with his incredible mobile egg-cup museum!

To sustain you while you shop there will be crepes, coffee, gelato, and Mummy's Yummys pop-up bakery serving homemade, traditional treats. Old-fashioned games such as stilts, quoits and croquet will keep the children entertained.

Raffle prize hamper of vintage goodies and gift vouchers from Junk & Disorderly, Antique Alley and Yvonne Sanders Antiques up for grabs!

Make a day of it and visit Balmoral's super Central Flea Market run by the folk at Junk & Disorderly. Its 8am-1pm. Double whammy!

Alberton Vintage Market Day!, Sunday 18 October, 11am-3pm. FREE ENTRY. See the event for stallholders and all the details. Put it in the diary!

Poll: Do you like the design of the new Team New Zealand's America's Cup vessel?

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

Meet Team New Zealand's new America's Cup boat.

Te Rehutai was seen foiling under sail on its first outing after its Thursday night launch.

She was towed out from the team's base on Friday morning and got up on her foils while under tow during the planned test programme of sailing on the Waitemata Harbour.
