Treacle Market

What a beautiful day, well it certainly is here!
Today saw the family and I, visiting Macclesfield, for the most wonderful Treacle Market.

This market, in my eyes, is a real cut above the rest.
I love the fact that it has Vintage, top quality crafts plus great street food.
I bought home a delicious red berry cheesecake and I may have eaten a few other treats whilst a pottling.

Not wanting to be too snap happy, and the fact that it is so busy it is sometimes a bit tricky getting up close to the stalls, I have just taken a few snaps of my favourite things.
I hope you like what I liked and then I will show you what I bought and something that was bought for me.

Superb tweed animal heads by Tweed Queen

my fave stall, the very quirky Shabby Cheek

more Shabby Cheek

great original vintage prints by Sherratt and Reece

retro goodies from Smashing Time

cute little dolls by Freddy and Violet

I am definitely going to treat myself to one of these by Tweed Queen

Worth a visit in the furure?
If you can, do.
I am definitely going to make it a regular thing. Great for the Mr's too with all the food ;-)
So, let me show you what I bought

one of the Sherrat and Reece prints, a gorgeous piece of fabric purchased at Smashing Times ,just perfect for cushions and
the most lovely Homepride tin which I have been coveting for quite some time.

the in-laws treated me to this gorgeous jug

and they bought over this bike which I am head over heels in love with
goodness I am such a lucky duck!

Tonight will be filled with cushion making, the eating of food and possibly, time permitting, a bit 
                                                                             of TV.
I hope you have had a most lovely weekend, maybe found time for a bit of market mooching.
Thanks for reading. x

btw, I will be announcing the winner of the giveaway tomorrow!


  1. I had that bike! My mum had one in that colour and I had the cream one! Brings back memories x
