22ND AUGUST - 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 maker 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 ONLINE
Date: Saturday 30th May - Sunday 7th June
Where: From the comfort of your own home
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.

We have loved the sense of community and support which this market brought to our makers, and can't wait to put on more events like this in the future.
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 have another event here soon!
