If the sentence you’re saying starts, “I studied at Massey University…” then it almost certainly ends with a story about GT: Golden Takeaways.
And that’s just how my Friday night ended – weaving around drunk students and a girl wearing a cow-themed onsie at 10pm to order a pineapple burger with a slice of cheese and half a scoop. Total cost of dinner? $5.
I drove over to Palmerston North on Friday for the ‘May the fourth be with you’ craft fair that was held in the Library from 6-9pm.
Alt. Shift. Craft – the group of three friends behind the craft fair – created a fair with a fantastic spirit. Shoppers were happy, chatty and delightful, the other stall holders had amazing creations and there was music including a ukulele band (they played Dancing Queen) and a bluegrass band. Great times all round and one of the nicest fairs I’ve been to in a long time.
If you’re a craft maker and hanker for the craft fairs of old – the ones with a relaxed and happy spirit – then I highly recommend applying next time there’s a fair, which I think will be just before Christmas.
And after you’ve spent the night wheeling and dealing then head over to GT for an authentic Palmy experience.
