As a new school term arrives, it is often accompanied by sinking heart, last minute discoveries of shoes too small, trousers too short.. or maybe you will be with the brand new students swarming in throngs through the aisles of IKEA wondering if a wok and 6 pans is really necessary when they appear to be only taking Pot Noodles…..Come to the market instead! We are all things rather marvellous – pies cooked to perfection, honey from lovingly nurtured bees, buttercream beaten within an inch of its life, repurposed wood restored and refashioned into items of beauty…I could go on, and can feel a bit of waxing lyrical coming on, I will stop now, this is our September line up…
