Vintage Market DOUBLE WHAMMY!! This Sunday 18 October.

Rendell McIntosh from Alberton

The weather is set to clear (just an odd shower in the morning) for Alberton's 3rd annual Vintage Market Day on Sunday! Come along to find a vintage, retro or antique treasure! There will be furniture painting demos, a raffle, old-fashioned games, Mr Johnny Green's mobile egg-cup museum, bakery stall, coffee, crepes and gelato!

Head to Balmoral's super Central Flea Market run by the folks at Junk & Disorderly to rummage for a bargain beforehand. A great selection of stalls and quite different so make sure to visit both!

Central Flea is at 8am-1pm, Alberton Vintage Market Day 11am-3pm

Razor blades in the walls....

Kylie Klein Nixon Reporter from Homed

Has anyone ever seen something like the image below in an older Kiwi home? Does anyone remember them from their childhood? These strange slots allowed you to rid yourself of an old razor and never think of it again...but it also meant, years down the track, that someone renovating would be in for a nasty, rusty surprise.
I'm certain I've seen something like this here in Aotearoa-NZ, but can't for the life of me recall where. It was in the back of the medicine cupboard. Let us know if you've seen, had - or have - one in your home.

Seed Sharing for Neighbours Day!

The Team from Neighbours Day Aotearoa

We love how creative some people are with their plant giving! This is for goodie bags for a 7 year olds party but we reckon you could borrow this wonderful idea for the Neighbours Day Aotearoa Great Plant Swap!
What a lovely gift to get and it's not just kids who love sunflowers.

ADDED BONUS: if you give your neighbours sunflower seeds you would get to enjoy their beautiful flowers too!

Have you signed up for Neighbours Day 2021 yet? There's lots of ways you can join in...check out our website to register today:

Pressure Treatment - Free (by a student)

Alicja from Point Chevalier

Hi,
I am urgently looking for more people or pets to practice on. Treatments are painless, safe, gentle and take about an hour. I've had some great results so far with adults, children, dogs and horses, ranging from less pain, improved movement and better posture to less anxiety. I've just attended the second part of my training and want to put it into use straight away, so that I don't forget what I've learned at the course. I don't have a treatment room yet, but I do have a (very comfortable) massage table. Please DM me if you, or someone you know, would be up for a relaxing session in the comfort of your own home. Thank you!
