I’m not doing a single Christmas market this year, as I’ll be far far away visiting my family in Australia.
However I want to give a plug to the Brockley Christmas Market this coming Saturday where my friend Caroline will be running a stall to raise funds for our beloved preschool, Rodett St Mary’s.
Rodett’s is a very very special place. Orlaith went there, Esme adores it and Elias will go there in his turn. I wouldn’t send them anywhere else! The kids absolutely blossom under the care of their teachers and there’s just a really wonderful feeling of community amongst the parents as well. The kids and I have made some great friends during our time there and we want to be able to give something back by raising some much needed extra money for equipment and improvements.
Caroline and a few others, including myself, have been hard at work making some gorgeous treasures and tidbits to tempt you. I wanted to show you a brief glimpse of what you could nab on Saturday, safe in the knowledge that every penny raised will be going to help carry on the good work at the preschool.
This is just a small smattering of what will be available on the day and there will be a huge variety of other crafts people out and about with their various wares. It’s a really lovely market, I attended as a trader last year. Lovely atmosphere, lovely bunch of stall holders and a good opportunity to get your hands on some really lovely bits and pieces for Christmas. Definitely worth popping along for a browse.
Details of the market are as follows:
Saturday 10th December 2011
12pm until 7pm
Coulgate Street, Brockley
There’ll be music, carols, more than 40 stalls to have a look at and of course, you can all swing by the Rodett’s stall and pick up something beautiful and handmade and help us keep our fantastic preschool fabulous!
(If you happen to be local and have small children in need of a preschool place, just ask Caroline for details!)
