Richard at the Titirangi Village Market

Richard is a regular at the Titirangi Village Market, with a fine display of his pottery. And an added bonus is the fact that he brings his wheel, working on his pieces as we watch. No handshakes, though, but generous smiles and explanations!

You can have elegant pastel colored soaps or bright bungy balls, and lots of other things in all colours of the rainbow — Sunday’s Titirangi Market was busy, busy, busy.

April’s Titirangi Market in May

Titirangi Market (May 2, 2010)

Titirangi Market (May 2, 2010)

Sunday was a beautiful day to enjoy the market at Titirangi (every last Sunday of the month, except that the April Market was held on May 2, because of Anzac Day). Yesterday’s post showed some of the colour of the occasion, here we bring an additional collection of impressions.

From left to right, top to bottom:

  • Phil Toms entertains,
  • Pukeko Bakery tempts,
  • Monni paints faces ($3 for little images, $5 half and $10 full face);
  • Luka lets the world go by,
  • the crowds are happy,
  • the sausages sizzle;
  • Chris Soulje throws pots,
  • this stallholder finds another world,
  • this young man looks pleased with his new face.

The next Titirangi Market will be on May 30, 2010.

Titirangi Market: Gazebo City

Gazebo City

On the last Sunday of every month (except December, when it is scheduled on the second Sunday for last-minute Christmas shopping) Titirangi has its popular market: arts, crafts, produce, good music and food, make sure to be there tomorrow; from 10 to 2.

(And this year the April market will be on May 2.)

Ex Libris: Titirangi Book Market

Jennifer and Simon

Jennifer and Simon

Jennifer Lamm and Simon Misdale at Saturday’s Titirangi Book Market. Jennifer is the president of the Auckland Ex Libris Society, and Simon is in the process of making a linocut of her book plate. Their society is Australasia’s oldest surviving bookplate society, looking back over a history of nearly 80 years. They have regular meetings with discussions covering a wide range of topics, not surprising as bookplates are meant to reflect aspects of the backgrounds and history of their owners and their interests, and a great deal of technicalities and stylistic matters go into the design of these objects. In 2005, a book by Ian Thwaites and Rie Fletcher celebrated: 75 years of Bookplates: Auckland Ex Libris Society 1920–1960 (Puriri Press, now out of print).

Simon is also a jeweller of note (both his rings are his own creations, and he is currently guest exhibitor at the Mairangi Bay Arts Centre); he is also proud owner of a garden of bonsai trees.

The Book Market was one of the events under the auspices of the Going West Books and Writers Festival 2010, whose main activities will take place at the Titirangi War Memorial Hall from September 10-12 (next weekend).
