General Collective Christmas Market
Go because you are not getting your loved ones another last-minute mall-bought generic body lotion and/or pair of socks.
This year, the General Collective Christmas Market is joining forces with the Scandinavian Christmas Market to bring all the best handcrafted Christmas items together under one roof. Also available will be delicious food stalls, activities for the kids and lots of entertainment.
There will be 250 Scandinavian and New Zealand stalls offering creative gifts, crafts, decorations and unique ideas on what to get your loved ones this Christmas. Dotted amongst the stalls will be numerous activity stations where both kids and adults can take part in things like face painting and live illustration.
Make a day of it and grab some food while you're there. There will be a selection of food vendors where you can try both New Zealand and Scandinavian delicacies.
The combined event with the Scandinavian Christmas Market takes place on November 12 at ASB Showgrounds from 9am - 3pm. The General Collective Christmas Market will also have a stand alone event in Ellerslie at the Christian City Church on Cawley Street on November 14.
Why not visit both to get yourself fully in the Christmas spirit?
