The Craft Market Network
Sam (Ganesha Graphics) & Chris (CS Bespoke Furniture) began The Craft Market Network as a way of giving back to the community of small business. For several years prior we had attended craft fairs, fun days and many other events orientated at traders to sell their wares. Because of how the retail world has changed over the last decade we found that at one point these events were well attended by the public but now it’s more difficult at these smaller venues. With online shopping having more of a part in everyone’s day to day shopping we’ve found these types of physical events attendance has dropped significantly thus affecting the traders. We, at The Craft Market Network, have taken it upon ourselves to change the way these events are run.
The Craft Market Network provides a physical platform for it’s stall holders to showcase their wares to the public. We ONLY pick venues that have a naturally high footfall already established. This gives our traders the very best opportunities to showcase their products. We then have an advertising campaign on every event that targets the local communities, bringing the public out to see our traders. We have appeared on the local radio and The Fens magazine for our events. We also make the most of social media to target the right people.
Recently, due to Covid-19, we have created a new website for traders and small businesses to sell their products online. For more information on this, please visit – http://www.craftmarketonline.com
With our combined experience and one of our founders taking a Certificate of Higher Education in Events Management, we are learning new skills all the time. We will bring these to our events to make them bigger and better. Making The Craft Market Network the biggest and best event company in the area!
