LOYAL CUSTOMER: Bruce Bryant, of New Plymouth, has been attending the fair for 20 years.

Shirley and Bruce Bryant love the Dunkleys Great New Zealand Craft Show so much they have been going to it for 20 years.

The craft fair is run by Christchurch siblings Fiona and Kim Dunkley, who have been bringing arts and crafts stalls to various parts of New Zealand for more than 30 years.

There are about 86 stalls at this year's event.

Bruce, of New Plymouth, said the fair was a "good show" with its variety of wares.

For Shirley, it was a "morning away" from the kitchen sink and she enjoyed the fair for its produce and many "interesting offerings".

Diane Brook, of Opunake, brought along an overseas visitor, Sara Hughes, from the United Kingdom. Hughes found the place "lovely".

This is Brook's fourth year to the show; she stops by every year to stock up on cardmaking materials.

The fair is at the TSB Showplace until June 2.
