EVENT: Everything and Everyone: Art, Craft & Zine Market

Everything and Everyone is an art & craft market with a difference, taking place this Saturday, February 15th at St Kevin's Arcade on K'rd, from 4pm-7pm.

Organised by cartoonist Sam Orchard - author of the wonderful queer & transgender webcomic Rooster Tails, this eclectic market celebrates DIY arts, crafts, comics and self-publishing, with a particularly queer flavour. 

Taking place during the Auckland Pride Festival, this is an event for people wanting to buy or sell art, craft and comics celebrating: creativity, queerness, sexuality, gender, feminism and everything in between. In short, it's an art and craft market for Everything and Everyone!

Stall holders and creators at the event include:

- Kakelake: selling zines and crafts by Alex Wild and Eli Orzessek.
- Ash Spittal: selling zines and art prints.
- Molly & Lulu: selling zines, crafts and illustrations.
- Glitter and Things: selling subversive cross-stitch, sparkly glittery leathery things and zines.
- Book Crossing: BookCrossing is a worldwide movement of making the world a library by releasing books into the wild…or giving them away at events such as this one. Kirsty Win has hosted BookCrossing stalls at a few community events in her hometown of Greymouth and thought this would be the perfect opportunity to do the same thing in Auckland.
- Triple Spiral: Selling some fun homemade soap.
- Victory Road: Will largely be vending cutesy prints and possibly some jewellery.
- Square Planet Comics: Will be selling comics, badges and prints - and maybe some other craft type things.
- Waywin: Will feature literary crafts, hand-made books, Lyrical Brooches, small press books and related items.
- Forrest Creative: will feature whimsical illustrated prints and cards with a rainbow flavour.
- Rainbow T-Towel Love: Will be selling a range of T-Towels, hand-made screen printed Pillow slips and T-Towels with Rainbow designs, as well as Flax wristbands, and Rainbow biscotti.
- And of coarse, Sam Orchard Comics!
