This weekend we were at Middlewich and West Didsbury Makers Markets selling our gorgeous Rowallan leather. It was great to catch up with some our fellow Makers and loyal customers at Middlewich, and really exciting to see how well the new market in West Didsbury went down with the locals! There was great music and entertainment, and the whole market was buzzing with a proper Mancunian vibe!
The whole point of the Makers Markets is to provide a platform for crafters from all over the North West to show off their wares to local communities in and around Manchester. Bring together award winning food and drink, and throw in some original art and craft, and you have a good idea of what makes a Makers Market! With our Rowallan leather satchels being lovingly handcrafted in Scotland, we love to showcase our products alongside other talented producers. Amongst our favourite traders are Joanne’s gorgeous pieces of original jewellery at Opal Gems, and Ben Sedman’s stunning photographic montages of Manchester and beyond.
You will find Middlewich Makers trading along the main high street in the town, on the last saturday of every month, and West Didsbury is based at Withington Community Hospital on the last sunday of the month. Definitely worth coming to have a look at the next events, there is something for the entire family, and if nothing else, plenty of cake!
