Brighton Christmas Boutique Market

This Saturday I will be taking part in Belle’s Events Christmas Boutique Market at The Brighton Centre, which I am super excited about as it looks like its going to be a great event full of festive cheer!

About the market:
Brighton is full of festive fun throughout December so we thought we better join in and let the city shoppers have a chance to vere away from the high street and find some unusual gifts and festive treats. Located just behind Churchill Square on the back of the Brighton Centre you will find a Christmas Bonanza! The venue is the former EAST WING of the Brighton Centre and still has this sign above the door. Simply walk down West Street and take a right just before the seafront and we’ll be there on the left.

With over 30 unique and some vintage inspired stalls under one roof we challenge you not to find something for under the Christmas Tree, be it vintage wrapping paper, fairy lights or a present for your quirky Aunt Mabel, we have it all.

And not only do we have all that but we are very proud to present Brighton’s very own Rock Choir, they will be belting out some festive and some not so festive songs to carry you on your merry way. Fancy a hot toddy, a mince pie, a cuppa, a glass of wine, well then this is the fair for you.

Buggies welcome, as are jolly people who fancy a change.

Is it expensive to get in? Ofcourse not! It’s one whole earth pound! You can also enter a charity raffle which could win you a hamper of goodies donated by the stall holders and the money will go to The Rocking Horse Appeal.

Nuff said I reckon, see you there shoppers of Brighton! Find out more and join the Facebook event here!

I am the organiser of the fair, and had great feedback on the last fair. It is a lot of work planning it all but hopefully it will all be worth it and lots of you will turn up on the day! I will also have a stall there selling my usual range as well as some special edition items just for the fair! Read on to find out more about the fair…

Avoid the stress and hustle and bustle of town and have a great day out with us instead! You can even enjoy tea and festive cake on vintage china while you are there!

The fair will comprise of 30-35 stalls selling a range of handmade crafts. These include jewellery, knitted items, cute characters, cushions, cards, prints, candles, children’s clothes, accessories, vintage style items, hair pieces, bags, decorations, beads and much more.
