Upcycle Market a success

A stall at the Upcycle Market

The Spring Beachlands Upcycle Market was a great success, with many activities and stalls geared towards upcycling resources into amazing products.

Young entrepreneurs had their own stalls varying from bath salts and sensory sand, and newly minted pallet furniture.

The Repair Café man was run off his feet with all old appliances being repaired for a new lease of life.

Newcomber to the area, Maree Robinson ably talked her audience through the joys of homemade lemon butter.

Third generation Beachlander, Mrs Rushton, showed the young ones how to make a paper liner for the bin replacing plastic bags.  It was fun and educational jaunt, with many promising to return in December.

The next market will be on Saturday 1 December and will be the Summer Upcycling Market and will be running alongside the Christmas@Sunkist event.

This is a gorgeous event, celebrating the wonderful lifestyle of the Pohutukawa Coast, with so much to do.   The Market will be run from the Beachlands Hall again, with a running theme of ideas for Christmas.

Wouldn’t that be great if you could buy all your Christmas gifts and do something good for the environment at the same time?
