Markets and Sales

Winter Market - Saturday, 6 November 2010

The Winter Market which was held jointly in the Old School and Jan’s Workshop proved to be very popular with visitors from far and wide. The weather played its part by remaining sunny all day – however any chill that may have been felt was offset by the warm punch and mince pies provided by the intrepid volunteers who manned their posts for the 4 hour duration of this successful event!!

This is the first community venture for Elphin in preparation for what may become a regular event in the summer.

For the third year, Jan Kilpatrick’s studio will be selling mosaic, textile goods and hand-made cards and books. This year she is joined by Eireann selling her jewellery and there will be herbal products by Jan Breckenridge and live guitar music by Dave!

At the Old Elphin School there will be craft stalls selling Christmas cards and decorations, candles, jewellery, paintings, textiles and knitwear. Food stalls will sell smoked foods, pickles, preserves and Christmas baking.

In addition visitors will get a free glass of mulled wine with mince pies and it is hoped that the Gaelic Choir will perform during the afternoon. There will be a raffle for prizes donated by each stall plus a delivery of logs, a bottle of malt, a footbath and wine.
