Our- visit to- Bloom 2023

We had a fab time in Bloom yesterday for the first day of Bloom which was full of Sun, expectation and excitement for all the traders and customers alike.

We were delighted to meet some of our traders there and sample what amazing products they had on offer

We started the day at the red entrance and in the “Nursery Village” where we found Leonie from “Irish fuchsia Nursery” we where delighted for Leonie winning a “Gold medal award” for her Fuchsia’s this year and we where thrilled to get a photo of a proud Leonie holding her certificate. Very well deserved, the Fuchsia’s looked exceptional and it was lovely speaking with you yesterday.

In the “Indoor Shopping Pavilion”, we came across the gorgeous hats from Miriam “Rainbow Gear”. With help from Miriam I picked the perfect hat for my upcoming holiday. Thank you Miriam I am delighted with it.

Lorraine from “The One” ladies fashion and accessories, it was a delight as always to speak with you and browse the Aladdin’s cave full of colour and beautiful pieces. Gorgeous dresses, cute handbags and lovely jewellery.

Oliver from “Hammockology” it was also a pleasure to catch up with you and see your top quality hammocks and the “Globe Swing Chair”,  what can I say, it was absolutely incredible.

We had a quick stop with the lovely Maureen from “Health Options” to check out the massage chairs and back massage guns that she has on offer.  Great gift idea.

We indulged in some retail therapy at “Purple Cloud Natural Lavender Oil” where the lovely Anife helped me pick out a lovely gift box for my mother-in-law, filled with some amazing Lavender goodies.

We also stopped for a rest to admire the amazing garden furniture at “Euro Garden & Home”. Some really lovely, good quality garden furniture at very reasonable prices.

Then to “Paul’s Donuts” with the lovely smell of food in the air Paul’s sweet donuts was just what we needed to keep us going as hunger was starting to strike.

Inside the “Food Hall” we found Linda’s absolutely divine Marshmallows from “Mallow Mia” (definitely the best Marshmallows I have ever tasted), was as much a pleasure to eat, as it was to chat with the lovely Linda.

We also sampled some amazing chicken from “All Bar Chicken”. We would highly recommend the chicken tenders and chicken burgers, the chicken was so tasty, the batter was so crispy and delicious and the staff were very friendly and helpful.

We really had a lovely day and it was really nice to catch up with some of our members and to meet some members that we had not met in person previously. We didn’t get to visit all of our members stalls this year at BLOOM but we hope to start going around to a few markets and events during the year to meet some new and old friends for a chat.

If you would like us to visit your Market or Event drop us an email and we will try our best to get to you.
