First market of the year

Had a wonderful, sunny, cold, blustery day Treacling at Macclesfield this weekend…. ok I admit we were slightly snugger in the old Butter Market  with the sun streaming in and church bells ringing. Great atmosphere as always, friendly faces and lots of new things to see. Treated ourselves to some great finds from stalls and great boutique shops. Mightily impressed by the teenagers from All Hallows Catholic College who’d baked cakes, made candles, chillie oils, chutneys, fabulous nesting boxes and scrummy dog biscuits which our dog Coco Merrtyale heartily endorses! Big thank you to the lovely ladies@ Smashing Times who gave us some wonderful scalloped petit fours tins to make retablos from… thoughtful! We love Treacle!
