Kraftbomb's 1st birthday went really well! There was a great turnout and the weather was pretty good apart from a few torrential downpours. City made an enormous cupcake cake to raffle off which went down a hit and I was cleared out of plush party food in an hour!

City and I (Karla) just can't believe it has been a whole year of Kraftbombing madness!!! We are so proud of Kraftbomb and the incredibly unique handcrafts that our vendors create and would like to take this opportunity to say a huge thankyou to all our amazing vendors and all the shoppers that come along every month, Kraftbomb wouldn't be able to continue without all of you!!

Here are a few shots from the day, unfortunately (or fortunately!) I was quite busy and didn't get the time to take very many.

setting up!

the happy vendors and shoppers!

I am hopeing that September's Kraftbomb has more geek freak plushies, more toys, more everything!!! August was cool though, it's a wonder you didn't have a table at the Aotea Centre, they had a children's event the same day..

Hey anonymous, glad you enjoy Kraftbomb. We weren't aware of the event at Aotea Centre. We try our best to have as many plushies as my tiny human hands can make!!!! Although I did make alot for August and they sold really quickly!

(Anonymous Answer) I guess first-in-first serve - It's all good, really was just wanting to see more of your kraft goodies, even though we saw a whole heap via the internet.

I was really curious in Alex's work, as he only had 80's characters and wonderered why he didn't have more up-to-date characters, but I have emailed him and just waiting or hopeing he emails back. You guys rock and hope to visit the next show..
