Today over lunch time I was helping out my good friend Keriann, on her stall at the Holly Hospice craft fair. Every two years some of the big houses around Havelock North are opened up to the public. Two thousand tickets are sold and the proceeds go to the Cranford Hospice. At one of the venues they also hold a craft fair. Which is only open to the lucky two thousand, mostly Ladies, that have tickets to view the houses. This year Keriann has a stall selling her Lavender Hearts. I offered to come along and help out. I used to make children's clothes and sell them at craft fairs, so the whole experience has brought back some great memories and I feel very nostalgic for those days.
Don't you think her stall looks great. No wonder her sales are going really well.

The venue for this year is Te Mata House.

The craft stalls are set up around the edge of a square lawn in front of the house. A brilliant space for people to sit, have lunch or just coffee or perhaps wine and strawberries. Te Mata house is part of the Te Mata Winery estate.

I spotted this very Kiwi barn opposite the car park and could not resist taking a snap.

P.S. This is my 988th post, I think. So look out for the 1000th post coming up soon, with a giveaway I think.
