April blows in the winds of change to flea market booking procedure!
It's Spring - even though you wouldn't know it by looking out the window - and we're taking the opportunity to rethink the way we do things and introduce some big changes to the flea market. Since the Drill Hall Arts Cafe started the market in November 2010 the demand for pitches has increased dramatically while the number of pitches on offer every month remains the same. This has led to queues outside the door on booking mornings, markets being booked up in the space of 1/2 an hour (as featured in the Edinburgh Evening News) and of course many disappointed potential stall holders!
We want to make things easier for everyone and give new stall holders a chance to get a look in, so from April 1st the first come first served system is going to be scrapped. Instead we will be drawing names out of a hat: in the first week of the month you can let us know if you want a stall for the end of the month. We will get in touch with you only if you've got a pitch and then you will have 7 days to pay for you pitch in full. Any unpaid pitches will be re-offered and then the 7 day payment period starts again until all pitches are allocated and paid for!
Please get in touch via telephone on 0131 555 7100 or in person. We can let you know if you get a pitch via text, email or phone.

Thanks, Stephanie & the Drill Hall Arts Cafe
