Our Best Intentions

Our intentions for Kraftbomb were to create a happy, sharing and fun craft experience for everyone involved where people can buy quirky, different and quality handmade crafts! (please don't be offended if you don't fit into this category) We have received a few upset emails from people who we haven't been able to fit in, if you are one of these people please don't send us shitty emails, it is not personal, we are doing our very best. I don't know if anyone comprehends how hard we work trying to organise Kraftbomb. We receive soooooo many applications and we only have limited space and basically have to turn away half of the applicants, not something we like to do. And just because you apply does not mean you automatically are guaranteed a table. We hate having to be the mean guys....We aren't bad people, we aren't disloyal and we aren't cruel, we are just trying to run this like a business. We don't make any money from this aside from what we make selling our crafts on the day, all money goes to paying for the venue and advertising.

We hope you understand
Peace, Love and light

Fred's lemondade success!!!

I think everyone knows that Karla and I are big fans of 6yr old Fred who sells his yummy lemonade at Kraftbomb. If you haven't met him yet and tasted his amazing fizzy lemonade, you are missing out!!

Fred's been selling his lemonade at Kraftbomb to raise money to buy a skateboard, which we think is a pretty awesome goal to have! We just got an email from his Mum Karen (who has her own rad stall Luxford St) to let us know the good news:

Hey guys
Cause you guys have been so fabulously supportive of Fred's lemonade stand, thought you might like to see that Fred has purchased the long hankered for Skateboard along with safety pads. It's a Powell golden dragon and he has been practising and watching the accompanying DVD religously since yesterday.
He said to me that it was the best day of his life when he bought it!!
He is now saving (next kraftbomb) up for a skate helmet, as he is currently wearing his bike helmet, and some skate shoes!
So thanks guys we couldn't have done it without your support! We love kraftbomb!

And here are some pics of Fred on the new board! Congrats Fred and good luck at the November Kraftbomb raising money for your helmet and shoes!!

Make sure you try his lemondade, its GOOOOOOD!

November application reminder

Just a reminder, applications for the November Kraftbomb will close on Friday 7th November!

Due to overwhelmimg response to Kraftbomb, we've had to start using an application form process to make it easier for everyone. We've also had to put a cut off date in place for applications so we can have a better chance at getting everyone in and giving new people a chance to join in the fun.

for the new November application form!

Applications will close Friday 7th November!

Kraftbomb October has been and gone!

A big thank you to all who came along to our 3rd Kraftbomb event. This one was our first time in the bigger hall with more vendors and a whole lot more space for everyone. We did have a few teething problems on the day involving last minute shuffling of tables, fire exit issues, sickness and rain!! But we thank you for being patient and understanding. We are always striving to make Kraftbomb an enjoyable event for everyone involved and do our best to accommodate everyones needs.

Even though it was raining off and on we were stoked with how many people braved the weather to come along. Due to being in the bigger hall we had some new vendors and it was great to have new faces! Coffee on sale was a big bonus on a wet day and Fred the Lemonade Boy was back!

The legend Chris Knox very kindly played for us and I think I can safely say everyone loved his set! Warming up the crowd before him was the very talented Edward Waka who was a hit.

So head on over to City's Flick page to check out more Kraftbomb photos

For those of you wanting to apply for the November one, please apply ASAP! We are being inundated with applications already, so please head to our form and apply. Due to demand we now have a closing date for applications on 7th November which is something we haven't done before.

Thanks to vendors, visitors, the lovely Toggle ladies and all the behind the scenes helpers who make Kraftbomb so much fun! We'll see you all next month, Sunday 30th November
