Christmas fare at grand re-opening of Classy Crafts

Fay Williams chats to local author, Marilyn J Bakker, about her exciting adventure trilogy.

Classy Crafters have not been idle during what seemed to be an endless lockdown.

Instead, like busy elves, they have been hard at work making uniquely-crafted Christmas gifts to delight shoppers of all ages; exciting new wooden animals, eye-catching succulent arrangements and terrariums, beaded jewellery, appealing funky earrings, a Sammy Two Shoes Christmas special offer, wonderful hand-knitted shawls, hand-sewn household goods, hand-crafted greeting cards and much more.

Our venue at the Picton Centre, just behind Bayleys Real Estate, is weather friendly and comfortable. Classy Crafts has been operating for over 11 years and, whilst there are many regular customers, some locals are surprised and delighted to ‘discover’ this indoor market for the first time.

So if you are a first-timer, just follow the vibrant red Classy Crafts signage on Picton Street and you will find a warm welcome, unique gift ideas and friendly crafters to help you.

For your safety, Covid principles will apply, with face masks and vaccine passports required for entry and the usual electronic and manual sign-in, and hand-wash, readily available.
