Happy New Year
Happy New Year from Leeds Record Fair. There'll be 12 Leeds Record Fairs this year, every second Saturday of the month. Takes place at Kirkgate indoor market in 2 halls - 40 tables in each. The fair is now in its sixth year and is one of the biggest and best record fairs in the UK. Don't take my word for it though.
