Trying to organise Christmas fair/book seller. Help needed

    Hi, apologies if this is the wrong forum but I'd really appreciate any help :).

    I'm trying to organise a little Christmas Market type thingy for the hospital I work in but not sure where to start. I was hoping to find the people that come in and sell books as the main event but I can't find a contact anywhere.

    Does anyone know of anyone who does this?

    I was also hoping to get crafty type stalls, that type of thing. It's 600 plus staff so well worth anyones time. Date 3rd Dec provisionally. Dublin 9.

    Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated.

    Many thanks :)

    Sorry not really much help however best of luck and hopefully you get something organised. This type of thing is what encapsulates the Christmas spirit to me.

    Might be worth contacting an independent bookshop? The one I thought of was Gutter Bookshop, they have a branch in Temple Bar and one in Dalkey but I know they sell books at different book festivals so they are 'mobile' and willing to sell outside of the shop if you know what I mean. Bob the owner is very nice and might be able to point you in the right direction if he can't do something himself.
