We really love our weekends at the moment – over the past few weeks we’ve discovered some great new local events, and re-established our regular markets for the New Year! In truth, we were expecting a very quiet few months after Xmas, but our lovely customers have kept us on our toes, and it’s been great to see so many people deciding to shop local on their weekends!
This weeked we are going to be at St Helen’s Makers Market for our second time. We had a great day there last week, and it was brill to be set up in the traditional market hall in St Helen’s – we felt like PROPER old school market traders (“two for a pound”!). We really enjoyed meeting our new customers, and we were chuffed to see so many people making the effort to visit their local market traders for fresh produce, handmade crafts, and of course our leather satchels! Good on you St Helen’s!
As well as St Helen’s on Saturday, you can find us at Wilmslow Artisan Market – one of our favourite events, and one that never disappoints! Our regular customers at Wilmslow are always so supportive, and sometimes it looks like the whole town turns out for the event. There’s always a great atmosphere, with customers wandering around munching homemade cake and tasting artisan cheese to the sound of live music and lively market banter.
AND, as if that wasn’t enough for you local market hunters, we’re at West Didsbury Makers Market on Sunday! Another one of our favourites, we love this chilled out market and it’s quirky local traders. Didsbury is another event that sees a whole community making the effort to come out and shop local, and we LOVE the live music and artisan coffee – it makes our job a real pleasure!
So if you feel like shopping local this weekend, there’s plenty of choice for the discerning spender in the North West! Pop out to see us, and we might give you a cheeky shop local discount if you mention that you saw our blog 🙂
