PUNTERS with a penchant for astrology in the attic and basket weaving in the basement were invited into a woman's house to take part in a craft market.
A resident hosted more than 200 people at her home last week, allowing customers to traipse through her front room to taste cupcakes and sample the empanadas, chutneys and biscuits.
There were 38 different stalls in the domestic dimestore, selling goods as diverse as doughnut hairclips, underground muesli and homemade halloumi.
There was even a bathtub bar for those who wanted a tipple on the tiles.

"There was a bonfire.
"The demonstrations went brilliantly, people crowding around to taste, to learn, to listen. I did my first live cooking demo.
"Stallholders made friends. We met people from twitter in real life. Lots of food was scoffed."
Answering whether she minded having strangers into her home, Ms Lover said: "No. Not at all. Is that weird? In fact, I positively want to share it. How miserable is it to live somewhere beautiful all on your own. No fun at all."
Ms Lover lets her home out as an underground restaurant and community centre and punters can learn to make sushi or partake of afternoon tea.
