The Yard Vintage and Makers Market

Posted on

And so it begins….

With only days to go till the fabulous Diplock Yard Vintage & Makers Market throws opens its door for another season of handmade, craft and vintage loveliness.

Held on the 2nd and 4th Sunday of every month the Yard re-opens this month with a suitably spring themed market on Sunday March 11th.

We’re going to be there with lots of horror and vintage pulp to chill the cockles of your heart so please stop by and say hello. Thereafter we will be at the market every second Sunday of the month.

They are always looking for more stalls and are always open to ideas  – Bingo….jam stalls….clothes alteration….pet accessories…10 minute massage stalls….pop-up art exhibitions….flower stalls…..The more the merrier and weird is always good!

So whether you’re a potential stallholder or you just want to pop by for a cuppa and a browse, follow the links below for more information.

Diplocks Yard (73 North Road, Brighton) is just a few minutes walk from Brighton Station, is open from 11am to 5pm and is free.

Frighten Brighton

Posted on

We’re dusting down our unholy grimoires and wormy tomes in preparation for 2012’s first FRIGHTEN BRIGHTON at the Rock Inn this February.

Last year’s Frighten Brighton was a great success and this one promises to be another fun-filled, horror fuelled event – with more films, quizzes, giveaways, book signings and even a ghost story in the haunted basement.

Brighton’s very own Macabre Market will be onsite, featuring loads of stalls selling a variety of horror-themed loveliness, so please pop by to our very own House of Secrets stall to say hi! And of course, we promise to bring lots of great classic horror books for your delight and delectation!

The event starts at 12pm Saturday 25th February. Tickets are £6 for the double bill starting at 5pm – everything else, including the 2pm screening of Frankenstein and the Monster from Hell – is free!

It’s your Last Chance to check out some of our lovely book bargains before the New Year!

Dracula and Alice in Wonderland have been the runaway seasonal bestsellers on our stall so far, but there’s still time to change all that as tomorrow is the final day the Yard Vintage and Makers Market will be open for trading before it closes its doors until next March 2012.

We will be at the market from 12pm -4pm so if you’re coming by for some books, please stop by between then. Mince pies or chocolates will be especially welcome! (I know, I know I’m being a bit cheeky now..)

Merry Christmas! And remember, if it all goes horribly wrong this year, just find a quiet corner to lose yourself in with your favourite book and pretend none of your family ever existed!

Me, I’m looking forward to catching up on some Dickens…
