"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 independent makers and designers as much as possible; to spread the love of creativity and community.
We have been able to host four virtual markets since LMM was born in February 2020. It has been great to see visitors from all over the World tuning in - America, South Africa, Thailand, Australia and Europe to name a few.
Our third event was the Eco-Conscious Online Market which happened at the beginning of October. We introduced 30 amazing businesses, from art and clothing, to beauty and food products, who all have an eco ethos at heart. This event was received so well and collectively we raised £180 for Friend's of the Earth in our Charity Auction.
The final virtual event of 2020, our Christmas Market, happened on 21st and 22nd November. What a weekend it was! We showcased 35 independent businesses on our website and their shop links remained live for a whole week.
We were lucky to be able sell some stunning goodies on behalf of some brilliant small business at The Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich during two weekends in December. What a way to end the year!
The sense of community and support has been incredible. All of these markets have exceeded our expectations and we can't wait to host more in 2021.
Thank you for stopping by and supporting our makers.
All the best,
