Knack Market is fun
Knack Craft market is Wellington’s boutique style market. It’s become so popular that it’s moved from its original home at beramphore school, to the much bigger South Wellington Intermediate School Hall, which you can find in Rintoul Street, (next to Wakefield Hospital), Newtown.
Knack is where many of Wellington’s up-and-coming crafters take their first steps in selling to the public. If you like new discoveries, Knack is definately your kind of market, but please rember to be gentle on the crafters. Hours of love, thought and passion go into each item you’ll find at Knack (and any handmade market) so things like bartering or asking for special deals is a little bit uncool.
At Knack you’ll also find tasty warm treats like hot soup, stuffed baked potatoes, samosas and Thai cuisine all perfectly made to keep you warm for winter or occupied while your small people hang out at the kids’ crafting table.
Knack is crammed for of lovely winter things for kids and adults, so if knitting or sewing is not your thing, stock up on warm winter woolies and clothes and some stylish acessories to match. Also if you see something you like but need it in another size, colour…. you can ask the crafter in person if they do custom orders. Most do and that’s the advantage of handmade. People make clothes, jewellery and acessories that work, and if you need extra tweeking it’s totally possible.
