Leeds Winter Market with Real Snow

It has been a busy month for Baby Book Swop in the run up to Christmas. One of these events that we have been looking forward to is the Leed’s Winter Market.

The market was held inside Leed’s Town Hall. Meanwhile, just outside the town hall was the German Christmas Market, creating a festive atmosphere. The Christmas theme continued into the ground floor of the town hall, which hosted a story themed santa experience. Although, this nearly didn’t happen.

The weather forecast, for days running up to the event, showed heavy snow before, during and after the event.

The organisers did issue a warning that it may be cancelled due to the snow and ice warnings issued, which is completely understandable. As the event drew closer, the heavy snow was downgraded and the event organisers said that the event would go ahead. We glad it did.

We had booked two tables at the event and knowing this, we had a lot of stock to move. We set off early Saturday morning, to ensure we could get unloaded, parked and setup for the 11.00am opening time.

We knew we would be located in the vintage handmade children’s section, surrounded by Boho Baba, Sewn by Sarah and Lambsie. Some wonderfully creative people producing great products for children.

The event went amazingly well for us, the best of the year! We sold many books under our 3 for £5 offer.

After the event, we had no trouble making our journey back to Derbyshire, as all though it had been snowing all day, it had not been enough to cause disruption to our journey.
