So as we all know, Christmas preparation just gets earlier and earlier each year. To most of my customer's horror, I was selling Christmas cards in September... but for every shake of the head there was someone busily thinking ahead and making sure their Christmas Card drawer was stocked up, so before I even realised, my Christmas stock was quickly vanishing!
For all those hoping to get their Christmas presents sorted before everybody turns frantic and starts fighting for the last perfume gift set on the shelf, I have put together a list of all my upcoming markets from now until Christmas. Each market has a link to their Facebook page with opening times and lots of photos.
These markets are not only a great opportunity to bag some unique and interesting gifts, they are also really great days out. From children's entertainment to real ale pubs, theres something for everyone.
I take card but some stalls don't have the facilities so make sure you bring lots of cash! And wrap up warm!
Hope to see some familiar faces along the way :) I'll leave you with this little message from Totally Locally:
If every adult in Leek spent just £5 per week in our local shops & businesses instead of online or in chain stores & supermarkets, it would mean an extra £4.1 million a year going into our local economy!
Which means more jobs, nicer facilities & a better future for our town. Makes you think doesn’t it?"
