Altrincham Market

On Saturday, we took Sweet Mabel and her wares to Altrincham Market and what a lovely day we had. The sun shone all day long, the atmosphere was buzzing and we met some lovely customers and fellow stall holders.

It was our first market of the year and our first time as a stallholder in Altrincham.  Having been many times before as a customer it was really rather strange to be stood on the other side of the table.







If you are local to Manchester and have not yet been to the newly transformed market then I urge you to pay them a visit.  There is an abundance of independent eateries to feast your eyes upon, not to mention the beer and wine bars. It’s a wonderful place to catch up with friends and family and enjoy some fine food and drink, or do a little shopping around the bustling outdoor market.

You’ll find a wonderful selection of independent retailers all offering something a bit different with a friendly face and a more personal touch.  Each weekend the theme changes, here’s a list of what to expect from the outdoor market.

Alty Line up

Fingers crossed, we’ll be back there again soon with our vintage style homeware and gifts.

INSPIRATION: An Easter Table

Easter is a lovely time of year to make the most of the Bank Holiday weekend by getting together with family and friends. Good food, good wine, good company and a beautifully set table will make the occasion even more special.

Every table needs a centrepiece, be it a candle, a jug of flowers or a vase full of Pussy Willow.  You can use any large container and fill it with twigs if you can’t get Pussy Willow, although I have noticed it appearing in some supermarkets.

Hang some special Easter decorations like we have (available in the Sweet Mabel shop) or decorate your own eggs and hang from string. You can get polystyrene eggs from most craft shops or pound shops, all you need to do is paint or cover in fabric scraps.

Plant bunches of daffodils in old tea cups or vintage containers to make it feel even more Spring-like.

Bowls of mini eggs are a must if you’ve got little people to entertain. They look really sweet in  vintage wine glasses, not practical for little hands but an elegant option for the grown-ups to enjoy.

And lastly, if you can’t find a table cloth that’s to your liking, why not pop down to your local fabric shop. I like to mismatch my tablecloths to cover the table by layering them on top of each other.  The ‘place mats’ you see below are just pieces of pretty fabric which I have cut to size.

Easter Table

 So dig out your old china and have a play around, experiment with some Easter decorations too and you will soon create your own very special, Easter table.
