Hi Cheryl, For the most part, the markets run from December 1 - just before Christmas, varying on the market. I didn't buy a lot, a few small gifts and household items. The trip was completely for the experience. I traveled with my mother-in-law because it was a special opportunity to have the time and experience together. We've never had a chance to travel together until now. My husband and I do a lot of traveling and have plans to visit the markets together in the future. :) All best, Serena
