CHRISTMAS MARKETS - THE OLD ROYAL NAVAL COLLEGE, GREENWICH
We enjoyed taking part in a couple of Christmas Markets at The Old Royal Naval College. The market took place over two weekends, and it was a great opportunity to sell beautiful products from some of our makers.
We had a selection of LMM goodies on our stall including candles, sweat treats, decorations, stationery and Christmas gifts to name a few.
Thank you to everyone who stopped by for a chat, bought something, or showed an interest in LMM. A big thank you also to The Old Royal Naval College for organising this event.

SATURDAY 21ST - SUNDAY 29TH NOVEMBER
Our virtual Christmas Market was the best market we've hosted this year! The event happened over the weekend of 21st and 22nd November, and we had customers visiting from all over the World, even as far as America and Australia. The buzz and support for the 35 independent makers involved was incredible, and so was the community built during this event between our makers.
From art, stationery and Christmas gifts, to sweet treats, ceramics and self care products, there was something for everyone to enjoy.
The Market Catalogue was live for a whole week, in order to give everyone more time to shop, and it was great to see that people were still shopping even after the main event had finished.

Our Eco-Conscious Online Market was a blast! All of the 30 businesses could be viewed on our website one week after the event finished, to give customers a little more time to shop.
From art, illustration and printed goods, to homewares, kids items and fashion accessories, there was something for everyone to enjoy.
We organised a Charity Auction to raise money for Friends of the Earth, with 26 items in the bundle. These incredible items were kindly donated by our makers, and it was great way to support this good cause.
Thank you to everyone who took part, it was another successful event.

SATURDAY 22ND AUGUST - TUESDAY 1ST SEPTEMBER
On Saturday 22nd August and Sunday 23rd August we hosted an online market via our Instagram stories and Website. All the makers remained visible online until Tuesday 1st September so that customers could still browse and shop using our Market Directory.
We also organised a Live Auction via Instagram Live, which was received very well. Keep an eye out as we have more auction ideas for future events!
There were 30 different creatives and independent businesses showcasing their work and selling their beautiful products. From jewellery, accessories and homewares, to art, stationary and ceramics, it was a great way to discover a varied range of unique products, and support small businesses at the same time!
Thank you to everyone who took part, it was a very successful event.
SATURDAY 30TH MAY - SUNDAY 7TH JUNE
Customers were able to visit our Instagram from 11am to discover and shop from 220 different makers and small businesses. There was such a varied range of beautiful products to enjoy.
We housed 180 makers on our website for one week afterwards, so that customers could continue to shop, and the creatives could still benefit, even after the event was over.
Have a look at the short video we compiled to get feel of the market and what our makers were selling.

SATURDAY 16TH NOVEMBER 2019
Before LMM was born in February this year, Olivia organised a craft market with The Duchess Belle in Battersea.
The market event was such a success, hosting 20 independent makers and small businesses around the outside and inside of the pub. Being close to Battersea Cats & Dogs Home, Battersea Park and Vauxhall, lots of passers-by came in for a browse. The stall holders were pleasantly surprised with the sales on the day, a few of them even sold out of items! The pub location made a lovely venue, and interesting change to the usual London craft markets.
We hope to host another event here soon!
