"Embrace every opportunity, believe in yourself, and don't be afraid to ask others for support."
As an artist and creative myself, I understand how challenging running a small business can be. At LMM we aim to help promote and support small independent makers and designers as much as possible; to spread the love of creativity and community.
I have been organising and running pop up exhibitions and markets since 2016, hosting them every year in different locations around London. Last November was a great success at the lovely Duchess Belle Pub, Battersea. The pub was filled with 20 amazing makers, selling their unique and wonderful wares, as well as a craft station run by The Crafty Makers and face painting for kids. We can’t wait to host another market at The Duchess Belle and other exciting venues. Our Christmas markets will hopefully go ahead on 21st November, in Balham, and 12th December near Vauxhall. We can't wait for these!
We were able to host our first online market on Saturday 30th May via our Instagram stories. Over 170 makers were also featured here on our website for one week following the market, adding to the whole event experience. This market exceeded our expectations and our makers were also pleasantly surprised with their sales on the day and over the week.
