Now that it's December, we feel we can get away with saying Christmas now, yes? However, it's been feeling festive for us for a little while now, thanks to the lovely markets we've attended recently. Although we haven't yet got round to wearing a Christmas hat or jumper, the twinkling lights, hubbub of present (and wrapping paper!) buying and pungent smell of mulled wine can't help but put us in the festive mood.
On Thursday, we were at the Altrincham Twilight Market, with a whopping space that allowed us to showcase off all the Wraptee work well! Cards and wrap pegged from above, framed prints and wrapped presents, it made us feel really proud to have such talented artists as part of Wraptious. The same can be said for the Knutsford Christmas Market on Saturday - our best market yet - heaving with customers that meant we never had a quiet moment to contemplate how cold it was!
Mervin, our mascot, was ever-present sitting on his artist easel scouting the markets out for us. Can you spot him in both photos?!
With only 23 sleeps left til Christmas (sorry for counting..), there's a few markets we're still at. Pop along and say hey - and if you mention this blog, we'll throw in a free sheet of wrap or card, with any £5 purchase. Just another little treat this Christmas.
