Craft fair returns this King’s Birthday

Back again after years of success, the Waihi Beach Art and Craft Fair is ready to welcome people this King’s Birthday weekend.
Organisers Colleen Low and Trish Coates said the fair was “fully booked with exciting stallholders” including lots of new faces and popular returns.
“The interest in this fair has grown so much that people travel from all over the North Island to visit this one day event,” they said.
“This year the variety is enormous, [there is] something for everyone.”
Colleen said the stalls on offer supplied hand-sewn garments, knitting for the whole family, jewellery of all kinds, dog and animal attire, retro and vintage recycled items, candles, diffusers, and beeswax.
“Stallholders have a treasure trove of different products too many to name and don’t forget those with a sweet tooth,” she said. “Lollies and licorice treats are back again this year.”
A new on-site café will also be available, providing hot and cold food and barista coffee.
“You may have been before, but every year this fair changes. It is a great opportunity to support local crafts people,” Colleen said. “The talent at this event always amazes me.”
