I’ve had a few people asking if I’m doing any events this Christmas. This year I’m only doing one event rather than a handful of them. This is mainly due to the timing of it. Winter Wonderland takes place at Tennants Auction House in Layburn on the 8th and 9th of December.
If you’ve never been to Tennant’s its not what you’d expect from an Auction House. It’s a very modern building designed for both auctions and functions. In addition to the auctions Tennants also hosts concerts, weddings and other large events.
The Winter Wonderland event takes place over a Friday and Saturday between 10am and 4pm, being just before Christmas it’s ideal for finishing off (or starting!) your Christmas shopping. Having visited last year there’s a wide variety of sellers from furniture to jewellery and vintage clothing. They also host a food market during the same event so if your on the look out for more unusual gifts your likely to find it here.
There’s plenty of on site parking which is free and you can find teas and coffees throughout the venue in the cafe and restaurant. The Auction House is just on the edge of Layburn making it ideal for a short drive out from a variety of places around North Yorkshire. You can find out more about the event over on the Tennant’s website. Hopefully I’ll see you there!
Christmas last order dates
I haven’t yet gotten together last Christmas ordering dates yet. I’ll likely do this next week. If your looking to order a dinner set it’s already quite difficult to receive it in time for Christmas. There’ll be a variety of dates for in stock and made to order items. I know last orders for yarn bowls is always in demand at this time of year. With Christmas falling on a Monday it makes things more complicated!
