Forward planning

The marquees are up, the tables are being put into place at the moment, and their gingham tops fitted on, the menus are in their holders, the goods are ready to be put out first thing tomorrow morning, the red pinnies are washed and ironed, the bunny ears have been tried on for size and – can it be true? – the sun is still shining.

With only a few hours to go, the pressure is on to pull everything together for our Mad March market. If you want to join in with this forward planning, and make sure you don’t miss a thing tomorrow, click on the links to download some information about what’s on tomorrow. Both leaflets will be available at the market, but in the bustle of the day it’s easy to miss things.

The main information sheet shows what’s on offer and when the raffle and competition judging will happen, and the beer tasting notes may help you decide what you’d like to sample tomorrow.

Some ideas for Mother’s Day

It’s Mother’s Day on 30th March, and you’ll find lots of ideas for gorgeous gifts at The Pantry this Saturday.

For the first time¬† in the General Store, we’ll be offering the full Gin & Tonic range from the Littlecote Soap Co., including home fragrances and candles. These natural bath and body care luxuries and home scented products are all carefully made by hand from natural ingredients, using time-honoured methods, and are individually hand-cut, hand-poured and hand-wrapped. They would make an ideal gift for Mother’s Day – or a treat for yourself. If you already have a fragrance diffuser, we’ll have great value refill bottles this time too.

Free pink jute gift bag with pretty labels if you spend £10 on toiletries. While stocks last!

Alternatively, you can make a selection from the excellent Jacobs Field Lavender range of toiletries made from lavender grown, harvested and distilled in Islip.

Or choose something from Polkadot of Winslow‘s cornucopia of delights. Lisa makes all manner of exquisite things, and for our market she is also offering lovely personalised keepsakes available to order in time for Mother’s Day – baubles, hearts or boxes. Pop over and say hello – and be amazed by her creativity.
