High Noon in Birmingham

Yes, what a catchy title. Scruffybadger and I have been planning a little bloggy meet-up/fabric shopping expedition to that glittering metropolis Birmingham. The date is Saturday 8th October, rendezvous at New Street Station, 12 noon.

Our plan is to meet up and go the Rag Market to check out the fabric and haberdashery stalls. There is also a fabric shop nearby. And of course some lunch and chat.
Lots of victorian architecture, museum, art gallery plus the new Selfridges and Bull ring development. If you are into RTW bargain hunting there is a big TK Maxx outside the station. Oh and canals...did I mention canals? Well, there's canals.

It would be great to see other bloggers on this meet up. I seriously would not recommend driving into Birmingham if you have not done it before. New Street train station takes you right into the city centre so is much much easier. If you are interested in coming along, just leave a comment with your contact email and we will be in touch with meeting place and details.


  1. Just signed up on Scruffy's blog. Looking forward to meeting you.

  2. I have been meaning to go to the Rag Market myself for such a long time and had thought that I would actually make the trip over there this summer....but still have not managed it! If you could put me down in the would-like-to-come-but-will-have-to-see-nearer-the-time column then that would be great.
    I agree that unless you have nerves of steel and know exactly where you are going then I would not drive in to central Birmingham. I always go by train even though it means a change of train along the way and nearly always having to stand up for most of it!

  3. Can I come please? Yay! Meet up!

  4. Yay! People are coming...
    I am looking forward to meeting everyone. Catherine - that's fine, I hope you can make it.
