Events & Markets

Our first ever market stall was in November 2020 in a small Welsh town called Colwyn Bay. Looking back we’ve come along way since then.

From the get go I loved being a market trader. I think it’s great—I’m outside all day in the fresh air, visiting towns I’ve never been to before, meeting all kinds of people and best of all getting to showcase my quirky creations that I am very proud of.

Pretty quickly I learnt new things—what works, what doesn’t. I realised how easy it is to forget essential items like tablecloths, ha! But without mistakes and mishaps like that I would never have progressed. I knew I wanted to take my business down the path of trading at markets and events so I decided to put all my efforts in. I updated equipment, invested in a better gazebo and purchased a van.

Over the years I have attended hundreds of artisan markets in North Wales and the North West—Liverpool, Manchester, Cheshire and the Wirral.

I have a permanent spot at Beaumaris Makers Market (Beaumaris, Anglesey). In the Summer you’ll find me in Castle Square most weekends. Anglesey is gorgeous and it’s no wonder people visit from all over the country. I think it’s amazing that people I’ve met there have then visited my stall when I’m closer to their home, for example when in Manchester. I have now become good friends with some of these familiar faces.

2023 was the busiest year to date for events. In August alone I attended 22.

I decided I wanted to venture into the world of festivals. As someone who attends them year on year, I thought it’s only fitting.
