Our first blog post - Old Spitalfields market - From Horsham to London June 24 2013
Thought we'd start with something exciting!
A few weeks ago, we were contacted by Intuit Pay and they invited us to come and sell our handmade products at Old Spitalfields market. This was a fantastic opportunity to help them advertise their fantastic payment system, which we use - and love! It's great for small businesses and we can take it anywhere.
Set up was from 9am and we started trading from 11am. The day started off with curious customers, popping past and browsing. After lunchtime, the footfall got busier as each hour went by.
We had a selection of our handmade cushions and bunting on display for customers to browse. Our most popular items were the pug cushions, jazzy bunting, Mr and Mrs cushions and our well known moustache cushions! They sparked up plenty of conversation and had passers by pointing.
Next to our stall, Illustrator Stacie Swift was selling her quirky designs and prints. Have a peek at her work here http://www.stacieswift.com/ - just marvellous!
Being a regular marketeer in our local town of Horsham, we used our trading knowledge, adapted to a completely different environment in London and loved every second.
Our first market in London was a success - here's to many more!
