Naturally we’re on a fully charged megadrive of excitement as we start gettin ready!
We’re not going to give too much away – but today is all about arranging The Front Room ready for the FABULOUS cake shop and mindblowing florist we have moving in… OMG!!!!
Upstairs we’re having merchandising sessions with our soon to be shop resident and making mighty fine use of our wonderful haberdashery units in The Meeting Room. Well fitting it in amongst a fully booked week is shall we say… interesting!!!

If you’re not familiar with the markets… Here’s what they say….
The Victorian Christmas Markets. Sheffield, Kelham Island Museum 3rd and 4th Dec 2011. 10-7pm Sat, 10-5 Sun.
Now in its 19th year, the much loved event is set to attract over 12,000 visitors to enjoy music, performers, Christmas gifts and festive food stalls – all with a Dickensian theme.
Christmas shoppers can delight in discovering over 120 stalls located both indoors and out along the cobbled street, all bearing seasonal goods to suit every pocket. From ‘Sheffield Made’ crafts and the ‘Christmas Shop’ to ‘All that Glitters’ treasures and ‘Festive Food and Entertainment’, with traders dressed in traditional Victorian costumes to help find that perfect stocking filler or unusual gift.
Visitors can gather under the gas lamps to enjoy the sights and smells of Christmas. Treats include, hot chestnuts, mulled wine, a scrumptious hog roast and taste sensations from around the world.
Entertainment includes a traditional fairground with gallopers, Santa’s workshop for youngsters and an array of musicians, singers, brass bands and performance artists.
Families can enjoy a great day out exploring the interactive museum galleries that tell the story of early industrialisation to modern times.
