Information and T&Cs

Crafternoon Tea Craft Market


Crafternoon-Tea has always been about providing an opportunity for people
to discover unique artisan crafts and for us to showcase our amazing "Makers".
Our visitors enjoy the opportunity to meet the Artist/Craftspeople behind our
bespoke items and discover the story behind each piece. Auckland has a
wealth of local talent and we are very lucky to be able to tap into that and share
it with you all.

Where is the event held?
Crafternoon Tea is held at both Kingsland (400 New North Road) on the third Saturday of every month;
and other pop up venues. It runs from 10am ~ 2pm, with changes at our discretion.

What atmosphere should I expect?
A friendly helpful one, where vendors can promote their work, mingle and share ideas with others in the
craft community. We pride ourselves on the camaraderie we have fostered with our vendors and them with
each other. #marketfam

How is the event promoted?
We advertise on our blog, via Facebook and Instagram ads, we have promotions all over the internet and
signage out in the community.  We also request that our stallholders subscribe to the collaborative marketing
method that we use. Sharing your fellow stall holders work to your networks introduces your fans to new and
interesting products which may be the thing that brings them down to the market.  If we all do this your business
could also have a whole new audience. With the changing face of social media it is more important than ever
that we work as a team, together our networks are massive!

What if I applied and was turned down?
Don’t take it personally. It simply means one of two things. Either we had too many applicants that month and
we needed to make a decision or your goods were not suitable for the market. We will always attempt to let
people know why they are not successful and if they should to re-apply.
How do I apply for a table?
Via the Google docs application which is accessed from the Crafternoon Tea blog page. Every stallholder
need to submit their individual application, even if you're considering sharing a table with another stallholder.

Does Crafternoon Tea supply the table?
Yes and No.
We supply a table to all half table spaces and if any tables are left they are available for full tables
for a fee of $10. However there are limited numbers so if there are any left after half tables it will be on a
first in first served basis.

What if I need extra room?
Your fee pays for a space only at the event. That is all we promise to provide - no more, no less.
Should you need more room, such as an extra 1/2 table, or space for a clothing rack, or a display cabinet,
you need to request it when applying. Even then it is not guaranteed. You should expect to pay more for the
extra space, as you are effectively taking the space another vendor could use. To avoid disappointment,
do not simply expect to turn up and have extra space available for additional items.

How much do table spaces cost?
A full table is $40/$45 and half table (sharing with another vendor) costs $25.  In summer months
we can happily accommodate people outside with pop-up gazebos.

Will I get the same table position every month?
No. We do our best to accommodate for a number of people every month and complaining about position
simply makes our job harder. At the end of the day, it’s possible we’ve turned people away so you can have
your space. We don’t have a lot of space and the Church can at times, like any other venue, be a logistical
challenge. Shuffling people around is therefore a necessary evil. Of course, we do have ‘regular’ vendors and
as such, they are afforded regular positions at our discretion.
We expect our vendors to:
• Kindly not show up before 8.30am and to have your table set-up by 9:30am.
• Stay at the market until 2pm. We do not tolerate early pack up and you will not be invited back if you do so.
• Take all their rubbish home and ensure their general area is left clean.
• Mingle and be friendly to fellow stall holders.
• Give ample notice of cancellation. A text or call on the morning if you can't attend.
• Pay promptly to confirm their place at the market.
• Avoid parking in the prime spots for customers
• Take extreme care when stopping and unloading vehicles.**
• Maintain and operate a reliable email address.

** Unfortunately, being situated on the corner of a busy intersection, with limited parking is not an ideal scenario.
There are yellow lines directly in front of the Church, which can make drop offs difficult and care must be taken.

Applications for the Kingsland venue are already open for the year.
Confirmation will be sent out closer to the market time with payment dates etc.
This gives our vendors ample time to:
a) Apply for the event via the Crafternoon Tea Blog.
b) Make an EFT payment based on your table size and requirement.
c) Advise of cancellation.
And similarly, it gives us ample time to:
a) Organise the layout of hall amongst many other small tasks.
b) Confirm vendor payments and placement.
c) Juggle cancellations.
d) Make any last minute adjustments.

This means, vendors have:
a) Seven days to pay to confirm your place or cancel.

On the closing date for applications, we will advise you by email if you have been successful or not.
You then have SEVEN days to make an EFT payment to guarantee your position at the market.
If your payment is not received it’s possible your space will be allocated to another vendor.
Should an alternative payment arrangement be necessary, please let us know in advance.
Receipts for payment will be issued upon payment. There is no GST component.

Per above, you have seven days from our acknowledgment email to either pay or cancel.
The sooner you can advise of cancellation, the easier our job is. If for any reason the market is cancelled
due to unforeseen circumstances stall fee's will not be refunded.

There are no refunds issued once payment is received.
