I'm pleased to report that after a successful run of Oklahoma last week, I am now preparing for the newly managed pop up market in the centre of Hull this coming Saturday, 10th November. It is being organised by the management of this busy shopping centre in a bid to utilise the empty area known as the atrium. Once a thriving food court, it now plays host to a variety of events on weekends, this pop-up market is to take place on the 2nd Saturday of every month and will show-case a wide variety of local stalls in order to attract as wide a customer base as possible. Run by Eve Lomax, who has negotiated with the management team, it promises to be a very successful event. Eve has had several years of experience in running events, and runs her own business creating children's wall art on canvas along with cotton bags of various styles which are designed to suit almost any occasion. In particular, her newly created Christmas sacks are proving very popular. You can visit Eve's page, Crafty Beggars, on Facebook.
With over 40 stalls booked for the first of these markets, there should be plenty to choose from. I am preparing some Christmas Tree Decorations - examples below, as well as some more cup-cake key rings/bag charms, and my latest cup-cake trinket boxes will also be on display.
If you know anyone who lives in the Hull or East Riding of Yorkshire area, please do let them know about this new venture - I will probably be buying one or two early Christmas gifts myself!
Here are a few examples of the new Christmas tree decorations I've been creating for the weekend:
