    Still undecided as to whether I'm going this year. I'll have to go on my own as OH will be at home with the dogs. If I do go, I'll be looking to get a fleecy harness for Freya, some vet bed and a few cakey bakey things. I will NOT however, be buying my food from any of the stands - cost us £15 for crepes and a drink for me and OH last year :eek:

    Yeah I think i'll just end up buying pretty sparkly things :eek:

    might treat them both to a couple of toys each.... the last few times i've been, i've forgotten to buy toys for them :eek: and will have a look at the dog grooming stuff as per usual but there's nothing I really want or need, except maybe a decent pair of thinning scissors!

    Yeah, the last few years i've bought practical stuff, this year i'm just gonna buy cuddly toys and total crap :thumbup: and might look for a nice new lead or two :p

    I will buy my usual bags of treats and foods to try that I dont usually get becuause I dont want to pay p and p to try them
    I will keep my eyes open for a grooming table but as I am there on Thursday the best deals probably will not be there to have that day on things like that.
    I like to pick up some blankets and vet bed each time I am out.
    Cant wait :)

    Oh the pice of the food was gob smacking, at least Dick Turpin wore a mask ! Vastly over priced for what you got .Worse for me as there was very little I could eat anywas as I've got Coeliac Disease and taking ready made sarnies is impossible the bread just crumbles !

    Im hoping to find the same stall I bought the dogs collars and leads from last year, Simba needs a new lead and Gemma a new collar, because Simba decided to drag her around by her collar :roll eyes: and rip it!!

    Im gonna take my own sarnies, not paying those prices!

    Hmm, my list is embarrassingly long, so I best not admit to anything. :eek:

    Let's just say, Lexilou2 and I are planning our shopping trip with military precision. :D

    Having never been before I don't really know what there is to buy, so I shall just be going with as much cash as I can scrape together and an open mind. Dangerous ;) :D

    Well, it's my first time, too, but there is a list of the stall holders on the website. Not that I've spent days perusing it or anything. :eek:
