…. gazebos, carrier bags, leaflets and stock!! It was a typical January day for the the first Wilmslow Artisan Market of 2012. Thankfully the rain mostly stayed away but to say it was a bit blustery was putting it mildly and Vicky and Denise seemed to spend the day on litter patrol!
As usual, though, there was a huge array of fabulous stalls selling everything from pies, cupcakes and sausages to jewellery, knitwear and dog biscuits and a steady throng of visitors travelling up and down Grove Street eager to look and buy!
We’d made a few small changes again to our stall display and were keen to show them off.
We also featured a little Valentine display to encourage the men folk of Wilmslow to treat their ladies!
Once again we were next door neighbours with our lovely friend Zoe of Honey Bee Designs . She was testing out a few new display features too and as usual her stall looked fabulous!
With cakes by Tea & Thee on one side of us and the olive man on the other we were bombarded with tempting smells all day and were actually starving by 11 o’clock! I mean, who wouldn’t be tempted by this lovely selection:
As well as a large selection of delicious cakes Tea & Thee also offer catering with their vintage inspired afternoon tea parties and have a vast collection of vintage crockery for hire. Check out their web site for information and prices.
Their soaps are made using premium fragrances and vegetable based ingredients and are SLS free having being tested by an independent chemist. The glassware can be custom made to your own specifications and is hand made using high quality artisan craft glass.
Sheila’s vintage china is exquisite. In addition to the lovely items she has for sale in their own right she offers bunting and vintage china for hire, perfect for a country wedding or tea party and also offers a wedding styling service. Her items also make excellent wedding favours or thank you gifts and she sells pretty vintage English cups and saucers beautifully presented in a shimmery organza bag for this purpose.
Our fab friends, the lovely, lovely ladies Vicki and Sam from Dotty Designs and Perfectly Poncho were within waving distance. Vicki had her lovely new wedding jewellery items on display making their debut together with Sam’s gorgeous, high quality, woollen children’s ponchos and hats and I have to say it was, most definitely ‘perfect poncho’ weather on Saturday! Vicki became a ‘Twitter Virgin’ recently too and you can follow her @dottyvic !!!!
Our gorgeously talented friend Gina from Cornelius Potts also braved the elements with her lovely greeting cards and had a selection of Valentine cards with her too.
It was great to catch up with lovely friend Lorraine for the first time this year. A regular at the Wilmslow Artisan and Treacle Market, Macclesfield with George’s Gourment Dog Biscuits and dog toys and clothing. No pic this month but hoping to snap all 12 stone of the man himself, George the Old English Mastiff, next time he makes a public appearance!
