Today was the much anticipated Northern Artery Christmas Market – a wonderful event organised and run by a fantastic group of enthusiastic and energetic woman. The day they put on is so good – the energy of this Market is like none I have ever experienced before, it is light and bubbly and happy, frequented by an interested bunch of locals. There is a small café area set up with tables covered in vintage table cloths, with vintage vases filled with flowers from the organisers gardens. Tea and coffee are served in antique bone china tea cup & saucer sets, and come with a delicious serve of home baking. Music seeps over the crowds from an amp in the corner, interrupted every now and then by live performances from a local orchestral band, and then later by a Choir made up of members of Northern Artery members and keen locals. The stall holders are all of such a high calibre that it is extremely hard not to just spend all of your earnings!
It is such a lovely day – and it was so lovely to break out some of my little minx items again. Ah, days gone by for me…. I would like to say a huge thank you to the talented organisers for continuing to put together these amazing markets x
