Crafty Vintage Christmas Markets

I've been saying I'll make it to a Crafty Vintage gathering for a wee while. Last night I was true to my word and went along to the Christmas Markets at Brockholes. If good food, music and mulled wine are your thing you're in for a treat. 

I love a good nosey at vintage stalls and could spend hours browsing bric a brac. I was expecting it to be a little like other vintage gatherings, where you have a quick browse, pass a couple of hours and leave empty handed. Apart from a dream retro tea set, champagne glasses and two adorable handmade organic children's jumpers, I did in fact leave empty handed...more or less. 

If you have a weakness for quirky or retro, Crafty Vintage may give your spending will power a run for its money. Alternatively if you can resist the lure of stylish homewares and one-off pieces (what's wrong with you?), you needn't spend more than the £2.00 admission and car parking charge. 

Live music and entertainers make it a fun trip out for the whole family if you're that way inclined. 

"A gathering where like-minded folk can meet, socialise, share ideas and gather inspiration."

The Christmas Markets are on for the rest of the weekend at Brockholes so if you're in search of something fun and festive to fill your time I'd recommend a visit.

The good news is events are held throughout the year at different locations in Lancashire. It is most definitely not grim up North. You can find more details on the Crafty Vintage website here! I'll be off to one in the summer months. Ah summer. Remember that?  

This isn't a collaborative post, I'm just very excited about my new tea set.

Thanks so much for reading. Have a cosy festive weekend however you decide to spend it x x
