Harrogate Christmas Market

Saturday, November 24th, 2012

This festive season our lovely town of Harrogate is holding it’s very first Christmas Market. We’ve been watching the preparations for a few days, as the marquees and stalls have been put up on a triangle of the Stray at the bottom of Montpelier Hill and Cold Bath Road. While fully intending to visit yesterday (Thursday) for the light switch on, Holly and I wimped out due to the monsoon-rain like conditions. However, this evening (Friday) has been a lovely clear and crisp winter night, so we had a walk down into town from Chiggs Headquarters, to enjoy the atmosphere and do a little Christmas shopping.

It was super! Holly was distracted by the stalls selling sweets, cupcakes and biscuits, while I’m a human magpie- love anything sparkly and shiny- and there were lots of different jewellery and gift stalls to keep me happy. We bought a few Christmas presents and chatted to some lovely stallholders about their businesses- one even said Holly should be running her own business as she did the hard sell (on me!) and I really will not be surprised if that prophesy comes true; my daughter is already showing a real entrepreneurial spirit even at the age of 9!

The Harrogate Christmas Market is well worth a visit, and is on for the next two days- Saturday the 23rd of November (10am-7pm) and Sunday 25th of November (10am-5pm). We hope it will become a regular feature of Christmas in Harrogate!

There are also a couple of events in Yorkshire that Chiggs stockists will be attending this weekend:

 Little PJS will be at the Christmas Gift & Food Fair at Ripon Cathedral on Saturday the 24th of November (10:00 ’til 16:00) Entrance is £2.50, accompanied children are free. There will be over 70 stalls including gifts for all the family, food and wine tastings, home-made Christmas cakes, Santa’s Grotto, face-painting and children’s activities.

Baby Blessed will be taking their range of gifts and childrens products to the Christmas Fair at Shay Stadium, Halifax on Sunday the 25th November 2012

In addition, Twinkle Twinkle, a lovely baby and toddler shop in Sandbach, Cheshire who sell Chiggs Wheels have some late night openings for you to crack on with the Christmas shopping, on Friday 30th November they will be open until 8pm and every Thursday to Christmas will be open until 8pm too.

Spot of shopping? Don’t mind if I do!
