At the weekend I went to the IWOOT Christmas Event at Ziferblat in Manchester, which showcased all of their exciting Christmas gifts ready to avoid the busy high street during the festive season! I can’t believe how busy Manchester was on Saturday and even getting off the train I was overwhelmed by the amount of people waiting to get on. It was like the London Underground levels of people, during peak times or something. Ziferblat always seems to provide a lovely little safe haven away from the perils of Manchester shopping, and Saturday was no different, it always feels good to find somewhere to sit down and have a coffee on busy weekends in town.
I love Manchester blogger events, as they’re always an excuse to meet up with some of my fave Manchester bloggers. The IWOOT event included a cute little secret Santa, where we got to choose a present for another blogger from under the tree and wrap it to pop in their goodie bags, and also Mason Jar decorating. Put me craft degree to rayt good use I did. I think DIY and crafting at blog events is the next big thing and I really hope more companies start doing it, as it’s a great opportunity to get a lil’ busy whilst having a chat,
Apart from the activities, there was also a lovely display of the latest Christmas Gifts from IWOOT
scattered all around the room. My fave was probably the Lomography Instant Camera
, but it does make me weep when I think about the price of the film for those things! I once had an instax instant camera and I ended up selling it because of the price of the film. However the Lomo version looks just as good sat dormant on your shelf, I mean, it’s just so pretty.
There’s also a pretty good range of stocking fillers, which come in at the bargain price of 3 for £20, which you can see online here.
Perfect for that last minute office secret Santa shopping!
Thanks for having me at your event IWOOT, here’s some more pics for your viewing pleasure:
