The best part about a Sunday in Auckland is taking in the wide variety of antique fairs and street markets that offer ample opportunity to pick up some real treasures at great prices, which is an enchanting complement to a stay at a stylish Auckland city hotel such as the Copthorne Hotel Auckland City. With easy access to some of the best International dining and shopping options, this central Auckland hotel is an excellent choice of accommodation in the city. If you happen to be in town on the 8th of December, which falls on a Sunday and you’re wondering how to make the best of the Sabbath, head over to the Mt. Eden Antique Fair located at the Mount Eden Memorial Hall. Tickets are available at the door and a simple NZD 4 will get you into a fascinating market place where you can browse throughout an extensive collection of antique items and collectibles, retro and vintage clothing, jewellery and furniture items, an exquisite array of glass items, fine china, intriguing coins, and interesting stamps for the family collectors. Parking is free, and you’ll be treated to complimentary tea and coffee, so grab anyone who’s got a thing for antiques and head on down!
