Bringing together a local collective of artisan makers...
Here in the North East, not only are we surrounded by incredible countryside, stunning beaches, historic castles, and cities soaked in culture – we also have an incredibly talented network of artists, craftspeople, creatives and small independent shop owners.
Having attended many markets during my first two years trading, I found them to be a real mixed bag with an enormous amount of planning and preparation involved. As a parent of two small children, I felt that breaking into the virtual market world would be a good move for me and my business – after all, I would not need to write off an entire weekend with my family and instead could sell from my sofa during the evenings when my children are in bed.
I found it extremely difficult to make any in-roads as many virtual markets were booked up months in advance and appeared to feature the same network of sellers each time. They also appeared to be quite themed and did not offer something for everyone.
So I decided to set up my own!
New dates available: 5th and 6th March 2021
