Kakelake (it’s German for cockroach) has been distributing local and international zines and small press around Auckland for a few years now, whenever the time, the place and the mood are right. We’ve got a range of zines and books to bring along on Saturday – all some kind of queer and some kind of awesome. Keep an eye out for some free stuff fresh off the photocopier just for Everything and Everyone.
We’re so excited to have Aych back again this year – his words, crafts and aesthetic skills are incredible. This year Aych will have a table full of aA assortment of resin cast glitter pins for every occasion!

We’re stoked about having Mellow Yellow stall for us this year, just in time for the release of Issue Six of their nominal zine. Mellow Yellow are dedicated to radical social change from a section of the “Asian” tau iwi population in Aotearoa. They work towards opening up a space in which Asian feminists in Aotearoa can speak and communicate our specific and diverse experiences, to counter the dominant white feminisms and left-wing politics, to challenge colonialism, racism, sexism and all forms of unjust social hierarchy. To engage in decolonisation, to create understanding between all oppressed people, to support each other, to inspire solidarity and organise collectively for a better world.

We are very excited to host PIMPI for the very first time at this year’s Everything and Everyone Market! PIMPI is a platform to advocate, discuss and foreground Pacific art and artists, identity and creativity within the Pacific diaspora. They’ll be selling a range of products including their Oceania Interrupted T-shirt (a collective of Maori and Pacific women who perform public interventions to raise awareness for West Papua), hand-woven PIMPI fans and their SOUTH publication – a journal on Maori and Pacific arts and culture in South Auckland.
