MARKET

Today we are going to take a break from moving stuff, and go out to the fairly new mini market at King's Plant Barn in Takanini.

We went once and saw some lovely stuff, so we are going again.
Hopefully there is one particular stall guy there today.  He sells really lovely wooden boards and so on. We were really impressed with his products last time we were there.

Once we have been there, I suppose we will come home and continue with the packing.  I'm saving a lot of money by doing it myself, so it's worth getting on with it.

I shall probably be taking another load of breakables and wall hangings/paintings down to storage on Monday.

ONWARD...

Well the wood guy wasn't at the market. Sad.

So next thing to do.... buy a chilly bin for our fridge stuff when we move.

Ever tried buying a chilly bin in WINTER? 

YEAH. DIFFICULT.

2.02 pm: Well it was a fruitless hunt for a chilly bin.  We shall now just buy a couple of really cheap polystyrene ones to use for the move.

We ended up at Sylvia Park for lunch.  Now we are home and it's getting VERY DARK outside!

We had an awesome thunder storm last night, and another one is due tonight... something tells me it will be soon.


ABOVE: There was hardly anyone at the Kings Plant Barn, Farmer's Market today.  Too wet and ikky.

Tomorrow we plan on going to the Cleveland Market, hopefully the man who sells wood products will be there.

Chilly bin search is over.  Kelly has a big one we can borrow for our move... EXCELLENT!

We will buy a new one next summer for ourselves.

Pizza for dinner... ate too much, as usual.
I really am hanging out till we move to join WW again!

    1. Yep, we went to Briscoes, they only had the small chilly bins left. We will need a big one.

    2. I meant to order online... get it delivered to your door :) But the idea of the free (or cheap) polystyrene boxes sounds like a better idea.

    If you have a friendly greengrocer, they have large polystyrene boxes that brocolli come in, they are nice and thick, stack well as they are rectangular and FREE. Good luck with the move, Heather

  5. I was going to suggest one of the local supermarkets for a broccoli box or a tackle/fishing store. We have a couple here but postage would be a killer :-)

  7. Hey Chris. Try Briscoes - http://homeware.www.briscoes.co.nz/search?w=chilly%20bin - but order it online. The delivery is only about $5.00 and an excellent service. I never go into the Briscoes Stores these days - I do it all online, couriered to my door. You're more likely to get what you want as they source them from their entire stock.

  8. Bunnings is another option ... http://www.bunnings.co.nz/search/products?q=esky (they have a specialist outdoor area)

  9. Mega Mitre 10 is a third option ... http://search.mitre10.co.nz/search?p=Q&w=chilly (Once again you can order online - but you nominate a store to collect from)
