8 Aug 2015 Our first market session for 2015 and a chance for us to catch up with our Arorangi / Puaikura boothers. We took some dazzling strips and pix, added to family portrait collections, chatted to honorary locals and sampled a banoffee cup cake (nom-nom-nom). Plus, Ms. Luna got a costume!.
A big meitaki ma'ata to our booth-operator-in-training Rosaline, who made sure that Mauke got their booth on. :)

11 Oct 2014 …It was a mad dash for us from the Saturday market, to set up in Tupapa, back to Matavera for a costume change, and town again for the 5pm start. Aroko came along in a Wonkeresque outfit, but we had to throw up the bat signal and request an evac. from aunty early on.
This year we were helping Rotaract fundraise for nebulisers, destined for the Pa Enua.
‘Candy Land’ was the theme, and there were some awesome costumes on show. Rotaract put on an evening of activities, dancing, (+ some candy). We added a few extra props and boothers grabbed some of the hall decorations to add some extra pop to the strips.
Photo reprints and enlargements are available (for a limited time), from the booth at Punanga Nui Market, Saturday morning.

7 Jun 2014 Three years of bringing smiles to the islands is something worth celebrating, so we did :). Free shots 8-10am; Ani / Fresh Local inking up (temporary) tatatau; lemonade and lollipops; + cups of water for visitors battling the heat. We even got a boothday present - a chocolate cheesecake from Sheeny (our market neighbour). Aro'a nui to all our boothers.
Big prints from any of the strips can be purchased at the booth from next weekend.

25 Jan 2014 We ran through the full gamut of strips today, solos, pix for visitors to the island, annual family portraits, wedding and honeymoon mementos, and some family pix for our fridge. We also bid farewell today to some of our regular boothers, off to further their studies in NZ. We wish them all the best, thanks for rockin’ the booth.

26 Nov 2013 What better way to top-off a day of intense paddling competition than with great food, a beautiful sunset, madcap games, and Island Booth! Once word was out, the juniors made the most of the free fotos. All-up,the Oe Mapu Awards was one of our fav. sessions of the year - also the debut of fresh ’drop: ‘Parapotini’ (passionfruit).
