Castlefield, Corrie and the Conservatives

Human wall of police on

Sunday saw the first Castlefield Artisan Market take place and true to form in Manchester, the rain came! Along with the rain came convoys of police TAU vehicles and the largest police presence since the riots sealing off roads with human walls and policing the TUC rally and Conservative Party Conference!

Despite all that, though the market was fabulous. It was reall well supported and there was a great atmosphere enhanced by the live music and dancing.  There were some lovely stallholders selling everything from fudge to flowers and photos to food.  We had an amazing day and even had a celebrity customer, the lovely Cherylee Houston, Izzy Armstrong to all you Corrie fans.

It was lovely to see a familiar face there too – Gail was there giving out flyers for the next Altrincham Vintage and Craft Market  on Sunday 16 October, 11 – 3:30 in the covered market, Greenwood Street.

Thank you to everyone who came down. We met some lovely new customers and really enjoyed being there with our Jacy & Jools and sister site JJKitsch jewellery. We think it’s going to be an amazing regular market and hope to see you there next time – first Sunday of the month!
