Jacqueline Corry says the new two-day market will not be affected by the weather at the Matakana Community Hall.
The demise of the Sunday Vintage Markets in Matakana in March has led to the formation of a new monthly market down the road at the Matakana Community Hall, starting on Saturday and Sunday, May 27 and 28.

The new two-day event is being organised by Jacqueline Corry, who was a regular at the Vintage Markets selling silverware, crystal, glass and animal hides.

“Because the Sunday Vintage Market at Matakana has closed permanently and many of the stallholders are extremely disappointed, we are going to test opening two days towards the end of each month at the community hall,” she says.

“We hope it will become more of a community event, with antiques, vintage, bric-a-brac and collectables, plus produce and fresh goods, and maybe local fundraisers. Currently, several people have shown an interest, but the more the merrier. If it succeeds, we will keep it going and have booked the hall until the end of the year.”

The first new market will be open from 10am to 2pm, and will sell a range of goods, including bric-a-brac, clothing, candles, handmade jewellery, dog blankets, wheat bags, perfume, silverware, china, crystal, seedlings, produce and secondhand books. There will also be a medium and healer in attendance.

“We’re hoping that quite a few of the stallholders who were at the Vintage Market will join us,” Jacqueline says. “Everyone is welcome.”

The last Sunday Vintage Market was held on March 26. Its founder, Fiona McGeough, said it had “just reached a natural end”.
