Thank you to everyone who has participated in one of our markets, both physical and online, and kindly taken the time to write us a testimonial. We really appreciate all of your support!
Best virtual market! And one that I hope to attend in RL one day soon! The lovely (and talented!) host Olivia really takes an interest in all makers and makes it her personal goal to make the market as well as the individual businesses as successful as possible. Through intimate makers chats, committed sharing and shout outs of makers, and an authentic approach this is my number 1 favourite market.

Words can't describe how amazing Olivia has been throughout my experience with London Makers Market. She'd been so supportive and helped build such an amazing community with all the makers and small businesses. Her passion and enthusiasm for each trader comes across so well too and I loved doing an Instagram Live with her. During the market and following the market I have also seen a huge increase in website traffic and sales. I've loved being part of LMM and even now the market is finished I still feel part of the LMM community. I highly recommend!
David from Mythical Canvas
Very friendly atmosphere, felt like home. Well advertised and people care about you and your work. Great job! Thank you for all your hard work x
Always a pleasure to trade with the London Makers Market. Olivia is putting so much work into organising quality events full of good vibes. If you are looking for a feel good community event to take part in, this is the one. She made sure traders were supporting each other and always checked on us. As a buyer you can be sure she picks the very best for you. Thank you again Olivia!
Diane from Didi's Design
Olivia is a real champion of small business and the thought and effort that she put into giving so many makers a platform was brilliant and made the event a success. The Chats With Makers was also great in the lead-up. Again, giving people a chance to share their story. Thank you Olivia and LMM!
Beeta from Beeta Taylor-Sadeghi Calligraphy
London Makers Market is a brilliantly supportive community of makers. I took part in the LMM online market and it far exceeded my expectations. I reached a wider audience, gained new social media followers and made more sales than I have at some London physical markets. It really was brilliantly organised and promoted and I would love to take part again in both a virtual and physical market!
Katie from Katie Putt Illustration
It was such a brilliant experience taking part in the London Makers Market and I would say it was actually a real turning point for my new business. Not just in terms of sales and exposure but also through being a part of such a wonderfully supportive community of creative people! I have nothing but good things to say about Olivia, her enthusiasm, organisation and generosity of spirit are what brought everyone together and what made this such a great market to be a part of.
Jo from Art Star
Fantastic online market! Easy way to shop beautiful products and also support small business and amazing artists. Olivia’s support and response are fast and clear, her IG posts and website are beautifully done. The market also gave us an opportunity to get more visibility and gain new lovely followers and customers. As a bonus, it is possible to continue shopping and enjoy some discounts the whole week after the market. Thank you for organising such a great online market!
Lenka from Elytrum
Such a brilliant online market - honestly couldn't be better! I was one of the seller for the LMM 2020 Christmas market - Olivia was so helpful and well organised throughout and always more than happy to answer any questions that we had. It is our first year of trading and also our first online market experience. Our sales from the weekend were great - we sold just under £1000 worth of products through LMM, and that included a 15% discount. Our site visits were up 200% from the previous week, so we really couldn't have asked for anything more! Thanks Olivia. If anyone is thinking about doing this market - don't hesitate, you won't regret it!
Alastair from Evergreen Soap Company
I enjoyed the makers market so much, it was great to connect with other makers and creatives, and I had lots of interest in my brand and products, thank you so much.
Ruth from Dandelionwish studio, Ruth Goodwin Designs
A wonderful event with fabulous organisation and support. Thank you for supporting small businesses and providing such a positive welcoming platform.
Amanda from Sussex Art Prints
A brilliant experience, I met some fantastic supportive makers, and learnt a lot about how to market my business. Olivia was very helpful and knowledgeable, she put a lot of time and effort into making the market successful.
Jacyln from olive & fig co
What a very special event to be involved in. Olivia’s attention to detail and attentiveness to her makers and artists was so impressive. A fabulous, positive, professional online Market that’s just great for getting your work and brand out there!
Beth from Wilder & Wren
I loved taking part in London Makers Market! Olivia did such a great job at organising it all, she gave us constant support and it felt like a lovely community, which lasted more than just the market days. It was also my most successful sales weekend yet! I'd really like to take part again and would definitely recommend it to others.
I also wanted to share with you - I was checking my website stats the other day and the last time I did the market with you was the most views I've ever had on the website in a day! So wanted to say thanks so much and well done for advertising everything so well for us! :)
Catherine from Bamber Prints
Really well organised event showcasing a great community of creatives and helping to promote small businesses! Could not recommend enough for all the support provided and exciting ideas such as the live auctions and chats with makers. Thanks for everything!
Philippa from Philippa Clegg
What a fab market it was! London Makers Market exceeded my expectations. I believe Olivia should be a business coach because of her amazing organisational skills and leadership. Her support from preparation all the way to the market day was so great actually even a week later she was still promoting us. I have gained followers and sold few paintings from this event and I can’t thank enough Olivia for organising this market. So what are you waiting for? If you’re a small business and want more exposure, fill that application form now! I promise you will have a great time while having that exposure you need and selling.
Alma from Alma Tipon Art
Pre-market, I was supplied with schedules, templates, experiences and ideas, to be as ready as possible on the day. Olivia was on hand at all times for questions, and very patient with queries leading up to the market. She was very approachable, and made me feel really valued. The day itself was very busy, and I thought the new auction element of it was a really fun and novel idea.
Overall a huge success for One Man’s Trash and a very grateful maker!
Anna from One Man's Trash
Olivia's planning and organising of the London Makers Market was superb and delivery on the day was seamless. All the content looked amazing thanks to the templates and examples she provided. The event was highly successful, with a wonderful range of small businesses and I look forward to participating in more.
Val from Discover Blue
An extremely well run virtual market!! I was a maker for this market and Olivia went above and beyond with the planning to make sure we knew how things would work, how we could collaborate, how we could support other makers and how we could reach more people. The two day event was full of content, interviews, raffles and much more! Olivia continued to promote us and the work we had done - building a great community on the build up to and during the event! I would fully recommend joining this market as a maker / artist! Enjoy!
Tom from TWW Prints
LMM is a little gem of a market. Olivia is the mastermind of organisation. Having participated in many markets, this one has been incredibly well planned, executed and supported. I learnt multiple new approaches and tricks from working with Olivia, who not only was super friendly and helpful but also professional. Highly recommend this market as both a participant and a customer.
Jess from Dottir Studio
My first time doing a market (virtual or otherwise) and Olivia made the experience super fun and easy from start to finish. She answered any and all of my questions with no delay, created a group chat with all the makers and provided constant encouragement before and during the market weekend. It's unbelievable Olivia managed to offer such personalised care to all 30 of us stallholders as well as organising and promoting.
It's clear she has a passion for supporting and uplifting small businesses. Couldn't recommend LMM enough for market goers and participants. Thank you Olivia!
Natalie from Faces in Resin
Olivia has worked so hard on the London Makers Market, going above and beyond every step of the way. She cares hugely about the community around this market and that shows in all of the prep work did with each and every maker. The market itself was fun and an innovative way for people to shop including a very successful auction and lots of great insta lives so that shoppers can get to really know the brilliant people behind the brands. In a time where shopping small has never been so important, The London Makers Market has given a brilliant platform for creative businesses to showcase their talents and provide keen shoppers an easy and effective way to get brilliant gifts or treats for themselves whilst supporting the all important small business community! Really excited about the next market in October!
Becks from The Helpful Hustle
London Makers Market was such a great way to showcase my products to a vast audience. Olivia was absolutely amazing at hosting and organising this event. Would recommend to all artists and makers to get involved. It was such an amazing experience, and the live auction was so much fun, can't wait for the next event :) thanks for having me.
Mel from Reve Candles
Olivia is so incredible! She worked super hard to promote the market, keep it running smoothly and include all the participants! The website is easy to navigate, the other makers are so lovely to chat to and all the products are very unique. I'll definitely be attending future events (be that as a maker or customer, virtual or physical)! Thank you LMM!!
Jessie from Jessie Dickinson Design
As a maker participating in LLM I found it a fantastic experience. I met a great group of people who created such a inclusive, positive and exciting vibe I would do it again just for that! A real plus in doing LMM, is the educational information that Olivia provides. She really encourages you try different ways to use social media, and gives you tips to read up on. I would recommend London Makers Market as a maker and as a customer.
Felicity from Felicity Royce Ceramics
Fantastic market and honoured to be a part of it. Olivia was amazing and very organised. So nice that there are ways for us to enjoy selling in today’s climate and to share the experience with so many.
Chantelle from Knotsy Brighton
Well done Olivia for organising all the stallholders. It was great fun meeting everybody. I was delighted I sold a few of my larger pots as wasn't expecting to.
An excellent array of crafts at affordable prices. Pub location a fun idea.
This is a very helpful initiative taken by Olivia. My Etsy store sales have worked well for me as I am just a beginner and also got many new followers for my insta account. Thank you Olivia for all your time and efforts.
Carmen from Mystical Feathers by Carmen
A great market, very organised and with good quality promotion.
Katie from Katie Tinkler Illustration
Mythyn took part in the latest online market organised by Olivia and I am so grateful to her for how well she organises the event, and the wonderful buzz she creates championing small businesses. Highly recommended.
Mathilde from MYHTYN
Thank you for doing an amazing job of running the London Makers Market last weekend. It has been such a wonderful experience getting to know you and other fellow makers. The sense of community was so lovely and the support and collaborative approach meant that it was a really enjoyable first virtual market experience which felt safe and encouraging whilst some of us navigated online marketing and new social media promotion and techniques. I made lots of great sales and had lots of new followers too! I really appreciate all the attention to detail, time and hard work you put in to make this happen so thank you!
Claire from Clairebands
Olivia was amazing at setting up the market & making sure to send all of us Makers useful tips, info & to-do lists which kept me very organised. I also loved how Olivia created a group chat so we could meet the other makers and have new connections. Great exposure for ALI MAKES IT!
Alex from ALI MAKES IT
A wonderful experience that was so good for us as a young and growing small business. We met some amazing people, both in the form of other small businesses and new customers, and were super impressed with how well-organised the event was! Would highly recommend this to anyone looking to expand their small business and meet great people.
Josh and Sophie from NUDITEA
I cannot praise Olivia and London Makers Market enough! The attention to detail and support shown throughout was amazing and I made more sales than I ever have in one weekend! The sense of community was also so great for me, it was lovely to meet and connect with other fantastic makers! I really hope I can work with London Makers Market again, hopefully IRL next time!
Evie from Create Space
It was obvious from the moment I signed up that Olivia cared about every-stall owner as if they were her own brands. The amount of support was incredible, it felt like a community and I would really recommend it to anyone thinking about selling with their own small business.
Talia from Talia Designer Maker
The London Makers Market resulted in our biggest sale through our website ever! We had such a successful online market in terms of sales + exposure for our business and felt supported behind the scenes 24/7. It was also so nice to feel a part of a little community of fellow makers, all supporting one another and sharing tips and tricks for success!
Evie and Hugo from Sugar Fix London
What a wonderful experience and weekend! Olivia is a very professional and hardworking market organiser, she has been very supportive and helpful and I've felt guided and helped all the way from beginning to end of this experience. It felt like being part of a lovely community and I have even received a few orders and gained lots of followers! Truly recommended!
Marta from Floating Feather
Olivia behind London Makers Market, absolutely blew my mind how supportive and hard working she is! From the beginning to the last minute (even after) she was always there with full of tips and variety resources to promote the event. The market experience was jolly good. I had more than +390% increased traffic on my website and of course sales. Meeting new artists and sellers were also extra special and fun. If you are considering to trade with Olivia, London Makers Market I highly recommend.
Jamie from She Knits You Love
I've attended an online market in November 2020 and the way Olivia managed everything from end to end was absolutely impressive. The whole organisation and how makers and designers were kept informed, engaged the whole time was phenomenal. Olivia has built a really good community and she takes really good care of it.
Katrina from Little Danube
Hands down the most dedicated market owner out there! Olivia is super nice and will do everything to promote you far and wide.
We took part in her first-ever Online Christmas Market and it was a HUGE success, in fact, it was the most successful market we've had so far. She was promoting our brand not only during the market but also for a week afterwards on her website. Thank you so much for bringing together so many lovely small businesses and customers!
