The Old Time 'Christmas' Market

It was a terribly hot and windy sort of day on Saturday.

By Midday I had had quite enough of being blown about
and getting sunburnt, so we packed up 'the show' and 
wandered around the market. There were so many stalls!

Here's some pics of my 'Raised by the Wolves' stall:-






Wandering around we found some wonderful stuffers for 
Ari's stocking and a few nice old hardcover Dr Seuss books 
which we don't have (we have a fairly extensive library of 
Dr Seuss). I found a beautiful blue felted wool trilby and 
some wonderful plants. But the find of the day was a large
and pristine hardcover edition of 'The Magic Faraway Tree'.

We've just finished reading The first of the 'Faraway Tree'
series, The Enchanted Wood, and although I have a few 
beautiful old junior novel editions of this series, the larger
picture book versions, with their many colourful illustrations, 
are a far more captivating read for a six year old I think.
