The Deli Lama café bar and venue on the corner of Bexley Square and Chapel Street is hosting a special Christmas Market next Sunday, 15th December, between 10am and 3pm.
There'll be nine stalls crammed into the little café and outside selling some rather unique stuff that would be ideal for Christmas presents – ranging from jewellery to photographs, from wood art to books, paintings and prints. There's also the Bows Are For Girls vintage clothes stall…
"I'll be selling my nan's cardigans and my mum's going out clothes because she thought she was in Abigail's Party in the 70s" says Gail Skelly, better known for her work with Ordsall Community Arts
"My mum has them in her loft for years but she had to clear it out recently and it's a treasure trove" she adds "There's lot of 70s clothes, some from 80s from my sister and my own personal collection of real vintage clothes – I think the earliest is from the 1930s, it's a printed satin dressing gown with those wide sleeves. I've also got shoes and things like that. Prices will start from a couple of quid upwards."
Helping to organise the event are the Salford Lions who will also have a stall at the Deli Lama Market.
"We're going to be doing mince pies and mulled wine for people too" says the Deli's Linda Robson "It's just a nice Christmas event really. I know there's lots of markets all over the place but this supports local artists."
If you go down to the Deli Lama any time before Christmas Eve there will also be a chance to win an incredible Marmite gift set in a special raffle in aid of the Salford Star… like Marmite, someone once said - `love it or hate it'. It's £2 per strip of tickets and all proceeds go towards keeping the Star going. Great cause!
Also on at the Deli Lama is the Kids Christmas Crafts day on Saturday 21st December between 3pm and 5pm and a Christmas menu running 17th-21st December.
