    There are many traders in Cornwall who rely heavily on Christmas for a large percentage of their annual income. But will the Christmas Markets be on in 2020?  Well, the answer is yes and no.

    Are you wondering what local traders will do, where will they go and how will they sell?

    Although it will undoubtedly be a disappointment for many, who love the Cornish Christmas Market events each year and all they offer, most of the people you buy from, the stalls you visit are likely to have an online presence: a website, Etsy or Folksy Shop and will still selling the products you know and love.

    Take a look at the gifts available to buy online from Cornish Magpie, who have an extended range including Cornish Hangings (ideal to bring some Nautical or Cornish Cheer to any house or Christmas Tree).

    Christmas in Cornwall will of course still happen – we still have the breathtaking coastline, the fantastic scenery.  With or without the markets, we’ll still have a Cornish Christmas, just in a different way.  

     

    Supporting Small Businesses In Cornwall

    Small businesses are pivoting to adjust to the ‘new-normal’ we all find ourselves in due to the pandemic and its limits on physical interactions. 

    Take a little time if you can, to seek out your favourite craft and gift businesses online via websites or social media - spend some of your valuable money with the small guys.  

    You can support small traders like Cornish Magpie by giving them a review, following them on social media or by sharing their details with others.  It means so much to businesses like us (think happy dances and moonwalks).  You’ll know exactly who you are buying from, what you are buying and the quality you’ll be receiving.  

    I’ll be spending my money with the small guys this year – the makers, the creators, the bakers, the artists.  Will you?

     

    Wishing You All Well

    We will all remember the year 2020 for different reasons.  We have all made new memories.

    Now let’s all enjoy the run up to Christmas and the Christmas period itself.

     

    Wishing you all a very happy gift buying and recieving season.

     

    With Love, Shirley
