A big thanks to all our lovely stallholders and visitors to the Bearwood Handmade last Saturday. What a lovely Spring day, with the brightness and warmth that Bearwood brings!
The TV cameras came to record the event and contribute to the community’s bid under the Portas banner for money to help revitalise the High Street, and even the local butcher and hairdresser made it on to teatime news on Monday! Try and catch it on YouTube to see crafty muthas’ very own Jennie Sandford explaining the virtues of a pop up shop!
There were fewer people around than at Christmas, but our resident counter reports that even so over 2000 people piled through the doors over the course of the day, and some local traders (in particular those selling refreshments) reported an increase in trade over the previous weekend. Lots of lucky people found their mother’s day presents with a spirit of individuality and uniqueness under one roof (but two rooms, isn’t that right Jennie?!), and all the gorgeous stallholders left with smiles on their faces.
Thanks for coming and supporting local handmade Bearwood, and come back and see us again soon x
