SHOPPERS thronged to the One Stop Shop on Saturday, November 3 at the Bleachingfield Centre, Dunbar to tick some items off their Christmas ‘to do’ list and raise money for the RNLI in the process.
Organisers Carrie Dunbar and Emma Doyle were delighted by the turnout for the event.
Visitors commented on the fantastic variety of local produce and gifts on offer and many shoppers went home with their bags bulging and their Christmas shopping list very nearly entirely ticked off.
Jim Anderson of Cook’s Desire, Skateraw, one of many local business owners to set out their stall at the event, commented: “What a great day!
“Shoppers were really interested in the range of handmade products available and the atmosphere in the hall was lighthearted and fun.
“People seemed to be enjoying meeting each other for a cup of coffee and a delicious traybake in Tarte Tartin’s kitchen, and then browsing for that unique gift or artisan produce.
“The Bleachingfield Centre is absolutely gorgeous, and as it only opened in April this year, it was the first time many had seen inside the hall- many people commented on what a fantastic and well lit space it is, perfect for this kind of event.”
Ken Headley, a volunteer for the RNLI, was delighted by the raffle, which raised £362 for the Dunbar RNLI.
They also had their own stall which took in the region of £300 on the day.
