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.

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.

A deteriorating noodle sculpture in Balmoral will be decommissioned due to its poor state.
OnDo! was installed in 2015 by artist Seung Yul Oh as a temporary public art work, and divided public opinion at the time.
The artwork depicts noodles being pulled from the roadworks rubble.
It will be removed on September 30 as materials are deteriorating. Are you happy to see it go?
