One very sunny Saturday, on the 22nd August, Katrina Wight, our creative director, volunteered to run a workshop at Print Club London, offering handy hints and tips to other creative sellers from the Etsy London Local Team on how to run a market stall. There were many requests via the team’s Facebook page for advice on preparing for a first market stall and after 2 years of weekly trading at Broadway Market, Katrina decided to step up to the plate.
It was a very successful event with a great turn out and lots of attendees commenting on how helpful it was. It was lovely for Katrina to feel she’d assisted others greatly, and those from the group who could not attend were provided with a detailed booklet, outlining everything she had discussed. It was pretty clear that she enjoyed herself too ;)
To top it off, Becky Lupton from the organic maternity and baby clothing brand, PJ Mamma provided everyone with delicious, home baked cheese scones, which were very tasty indeed and certainly helped to keep their energy levels going!
