As I write this I’m watching Morcombe & Wise Christmas Special, kipper ties, wide lapels & Des O’Conner, oh & Angela Rippon now, its definite throw back to the 70’s, (not that I remember the 70’s of course, I’m purely guessing here you understand…) Either way, it definitely means Christmas is almost here! It’s very nearly almost time to hibernate & I really cannot wait!! But before all that (& several more vintage Christmas Special of years gone by), there’s the very serious business of the final, the very best till last, the amazing finale of the year, the last Treacle Market of 2014 & it’s going to be MAGNIFICENT!! It will be a perfect ending to a very busy year! So you’d best get out the trundles & trollies, bags & baskets, & fill your boots, you’re going to need it!
So if you’ve not been before & you’d like a heads up to Magnificent Stalls & local businesses (obviously I include myself in this list!) here’s a few of my absolute favourites!!
❄️ On Chestergate there’s the wonderful treasure trove that is Deja Vu! It’s a shop full to the brim with the curious, the gorgeous & the must haves, but hands off the cake plates – they’re ALL MINE!!! Mwhahahahaa!
❄️ Next is the wonderful Fudge Box to be found on Castle St, you’ll get the most amazing Cheshire fudge, the a tasty gift for Christmas!
❄️ The best Cafe by far is Plums Kitchen on the Market Place (opps the Library), the best food in Macclesfield in my honest opinion & they currently have the cutest Gingerbread House that ever was! (Ok, I admit to being utterly biased but it is cute don’t you think!!)
❄️ My lovely friend Doodle Lou is so very talented & she has a stall along with other very talented artists/designers, just out the entrance to the Grosvenor Centre, beautiful, quirky jewelry , cards & gifts!
There are so many more wonderful business I could go on all day & night & longer, but a few to look at anyways!
