Happy New Year!!

I MASSIVE thanks to everyone who has helped out the bike basket market over the last few months esp Jayne and Brett at the Christmas Steps Market and the Tobacco Factory. We had a fantastic run in November and Dec and really enjoyed meeting lots of other stall holders and all the lovely people who bought our "wares on wheels".

At the moment we are all going to have a rest and replenish stocks ready for the spring festivals and markets and we hope to see more of you there.

Please please get in touch if you know and events where we would fit in well or if you would like to get involved and join us, the more the merrier.

Have a happy new year and watch this space for news....
