Pottered around on Sunday, spent all my money, and had an excellent time despite the somewhat miserable weather... photos of the new hat and shirt to follow....

A fun and interesting day at the Steampunk Market and the Museum. And we won on the raffle - yay! No men's footwear though - boo!

Simon Hudson

 

Wonderful day! Met lovely people! Thank you so much!!

Lucy Dalton

 

Was there yesterday, awesome day

Trina Stock

 

Attended yesterday rather than today. My very first event, not counting running in and out of Asylum. The Memsaab pooh poohed my purchase of a pith helmet though. Still time.

Just wanted to say thanks for an awesome day today (Saturday)! Was good to see a few familiar faces (Exhibitors and visitors) :)

Sat in a tearoom in an industrial museum watching a werewolf-thing in a corset having a biscuit dunking duel. Why is life so predictable?

Loved the Market. We went on Saturday. Very friendly people. Would have loved to come back on the Sunday but there is no buses that run to the museum on a Sunday. Which is a shame as it seems that was the most busiest day looking at the photos. We'll be around for the next one.

What a pleasantly splendid surprise it was for my first visit to a Steampunk event. The stories that I had heard of burning at the stake, gauging of the eyes and hangings by your entrails for outsiders were totally untrue and a damn lie. Although I did come close to being splashed by a smoothie maker powered by a penny farthing.

Instead I found the people to be more than welcoming with some wonderful wares to be sold, including jams & jewellery, skulls & scripts, hats & coats, books & buns.

It was great to see so many people, both young and old coming together with a shared interest. It was like stepping back in time, taking a different path and then coming back to the future. It reminded me of my old punk days without the anger or the Goth days with bright outlook for the future.

I find the whole style of Victorian old and new so photogenic and I managed to get some great photos and some better friends.

I'm hooked now and I look forward to visiting many more Steampunk events in the near future, or should that be the past.

Just a quick note to say how much we enjoyed Sunday. Bradford was our third LSM and by far the best... Great location and a good mix of traders, tho it would be nice to see the mix change a little - loved Albion Artefacts for example! And the time travelling tea tent too! Well done to you both! Good luck and hopefully see you at the next one?

Rob Rowell

 

Excellent event and our first market. Nice change of pace from the Railway Museum. Both Wonderful. Thanks from

Jacqui and Jim Plimmer.

 

Well done Jo and Si, great day at Bradford industrial museum.

Steven Wright.

 

Loved the accidental change of venue guys good choice. Had a fantastic day at Bradford Mill - well worth a visit!

I had a wonderful time as usual at LSM, I think my next visit will be the christmas one now (depends on how many weekends I can book off work this year), but I simply love LSM everytime.

I went on Sunday and had a really great time. This is the 3rd steampunk event I've been to and it was by far the best! There were so many stalls and so many interesting items for sale. - My purse feels a lot lighter now! Everyone was so nice and chatty. It was great to see so many people dressed up too. I took my friend with me and he has never been to anything like this before, he had a great time and has now got more into steampunk! Thanks to everyone who set this up and all the sellers. I look forward to seeing you all again at some point..

Hayley Hardman

 

I'd just like to thank Jo and Si for an amazing day as always. I'd also like to thank Damon and Su for helping me out with the Disabled Parking and the staff at Armley Mills for all their help getting me around. Thanks again for an amazing day :)

Tony Howell

 

My first steampunk market & had a great time. Can't wait for the next one!

Today was my 1st Steam punk event & all I can say was I really enjoyed it. All the stall holders were lovely. Had my daughter with her 2 month old son plus my other grandson & even he enjoyed it esp seeing the pirates that were there. Looking forward to trying the jam I bought.

Jo Russell

 

Just back from the event and a big thanks to the organisers - loads of amazing stalls and a fantastic day.

Had a lovely day and collected my gorgeous Wilkinson boarding gun and holster from the brilliantly clever Cockett & Pugh but Dammit he must be using mind bending techniques as every time I see him I buy

 

something. How though could I resist the gun at the top so very well made. Thank you Sir this Gentleman is now well armed and prepared to defend any Ladies in distress he finds

Stephen Eatch

 

Had a fab day at Leeds Steampunk Markets, if you are not sure if you are going tomorrow, make the effort and go...it is definitely worth it

I had one of the best LSM days ever today! Thank you soooo much to everyone who stopped by my stall. You're all awesome

Nooka Martece

 

Thanks to all, the great, the good, the charming and the wickedly disreputable (we like those especially) who dropped in for a spot of  tea...well to watch us drink it; but that how it goes. (Not sure how the vodka got to be in the gin bottle but that’s another story)

Until next time from

The Time Travelling Tea Tent

 

Had another amazing day today, thank you, Jo and Si, it's been great meeting all you lovely people again and a lot of new faces as well. Hope you all have a great day tomorrow. x x

Gothic Fallen Angel

 

Thanks for letting me trade today!!!! I'd love to do the next one, had a really good day x

Liz Kirkham

 

Just got back and wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you to you and Si for an amazing weekend.

By far the best organised event we have attended so far. Also a massive thank you for where our stall was placed. We took almost double what we have taken at any other event. And thank you for taking my personal needs into account.

We would love to attend all of your events we can make. So if, when you've managed to sit and have five minutes, you wouldn't mind sending me a list of your future events I can let you know what events we will want to attend.

Once again, many thanks;

Glynn, Tree Of Life Products.

 

I'd just like to say thanks to Si and Jo for having us supply pizzas at Bradford at the weekend, Sarah and I had a great time and it was great to meet and speak to a lot of you. The positive feedback means a great deal to us and we will hopefully see you again in the near future. Thanks again!

Darren, Duke's Pizza.

 

I would like to say how much I appreciate your organising. The info is always helpful and detailed, and I like the fact that you insist on PLI (not everywhere checks) and that you try not to have too many people selling the same stuff!

Karen, Fun Hair Stuff

 

We had a great time today even if it was a little cold, great place to launch my new look stall. Met some lovely people and had great feedback - if anyone took a photo of me with my mini me doll, could you email it to me so I can use it in a press release please. raychel@angelsfromdemons.com

Raychel McGuin

 

Amazing weekend!!! So well organised by Jo and Si... couldn't have asked for more!!!

Will see you all at the next one!!!

Glynn Webster

 

Another rip roaring success on Saturday in Bradford, such a lovely venue and the machinery working is always fab. Big thank you to Jo & Si and their team for all the hard work and to Mikey for the tea and cake.

It is always great to catch up with the usual suspects and meet new folks. Big thanks again x

Gail Young

 

Had an awesome event. Huge thank you to everyone who came and especially to those who bought something. Looking forward to the next one.

Hilary Sedgwick

 

Brilliant day! Bravo everyone involved.

Rachel Barrett

 

Was a great market, really enjoyed seeing people, great venue, bought some fab things! Well done, you deserve your pizza xxx

Tina Smithson

 

Attended the market today as a trader for the first time. Had a good enjoyable day. Thank you to Jo and Si and all the lovely customers who purchased from me. A thank you also to those who took a business card and showed so much interest in my handmade pieces

CHARITY FUNDRAISERS

 

Thanks for having us, we loved mingling and chatting to the 'punkers.

Our members who saw your set up for the first time were most impressed and we took just over TWO HUNDRED pounds in donations and tombola.

We also got some great ideas for your event in July...not least of all how to run the tea room!

Thank you once again for your support and the generosity of your traders in their donations.

John Linkins, Middleton Railway.

 

Pete and I had a great time over last weekend, thank you so much for inviting the Mercury Phoenix Trust to Steampunk. Such a lovely bunch of people and so talented, the costumes were amazing and very entertaining . It was good to talk to a different group of people about the Trust as awareness is the key to the never ending fight against HIV/AIDS.

We could have spent a lot more than we did but we do have a beautiful clock to remind us of our weekend and plenty of preserves to keep us going.

Pete & Maureen, The Mercury Phoenix Trust
