Recycled Wedding show a success

Weddings can be a real hassle to organise at times, and all it takes is a peek at the prices to
make one feel uneasy. That’s where The Recycled Wedding New Zealand (RWNZ) comes in.

Their showcase and garage sale event at the Fencibles Lounge on Saturday, June 10, was the perfect opportunity for newly married couples to sell their pre-loved wedding fashion, accessories, decor and supplies to brides and grooms to be.

Event co-ordinator Liz Scott (pictured) said more than 300 people attended the event – keep an eye out for news on next year’s event!


            


Bedazzled by new home

After much speculation about the goings on in the middle of Picton Street, Village Jeweller
recently unveiled its sparkling new shop.

For more than 30 years, Chris Schweder has owned and operated Village Jeweller at various locations around Howick, and the new home looks great.

Formerly the location of Silks Jewellers, 59 Picton Street now stocks stunning ranges of jewellery, watches and giftware as well as the bespoke jewellery Chris and his fellow designers are renowned for.

Moving the jewellery business from one end of Picton Street to the other was no mean feat.

Transporting the all-important safe took a day and re-building the popular workshop that
has the artisan jewellers on display, is still a work in progress.

“The last few months were an unbelievably massive undertaking and surrounding ourselves with solutions-based thinkers kept me remarkably calm,” said Chris

Although we have heard he recently went off-grid for a well deserved few days to recharge
his creative batteries.
