Ostend Markets - Saturday's 9-12.30 rain or shine, Ostend Community Hall

Well the sun has shone warm and bright upon Waiheke Island all the way through these Autumn months! What a spectacular summer. We decided the take the opportunity to bring the three graces with us to the Ostend Markets to see what treasure we could find, and find we did! 

 

Perfume with a twist!

There were loads of people out enjoying the sun too, trees to climb and jugglers to watch.

Stalls-a-plenty peddling new and old from bric a brac, local crafts and artisans selling jewellery, sculpture, clothing and treasures of all kinds. Great bargains and some lovely gifts...

The highlight was having a chat to Mark Sommerset, a local who writes, along with his wife's beautiful illustrations, wonderful, whimsical and funny children's books. We bought two to add to our collection which he kindly signed. I will do a book review on his works sometime in the future!

Absolutely worth a visit next time you are on the island you can easily drive or catch the bus and alight at Ostend.
