OK so not the catchiest of blog titles but today I want to celebrate two different women that kind of do the same thing!
Both these ladies spend a lot of time organising fayres in our local area where u-ni-k gifts can promote and sell some of our lovely treasures to people. These fayres allow us to talk to our customers and find out what they love about our products and what they'd perhaps like us to keep our eyes out for in the future.
This is an invaluable experience for us as our online sales can sometimes lack the human touch of a conversation. While it's always good to receive positive feedback, it's even better when you can see the smile on the face of the person buying the gift!
In organising these fayres these ladies not only book the hall, organise the stalls (making sure no two stalls are alike) and communicating with all the stall holders. They also ensure that there are refreshments on site, there is ample parking for us to unload all our goods and ample parking for those that are coming to see us!
On top of all this, they sort out the advertising, printing & putting up / handing out flyers, putting up the banners on the day, and endlessly marketing the event to ensure footfall (people attending the fayre) is worth all the effort they and we the stall holders put in to holding the fayre.
So the unsung heroes of the Godalming Independent Market; Loretta Farell, and Love What We Do events in West Byfleet, Jane Tyson, are today's Monday Mentors.
Well Done Ladies, we take our hats off to you!
u-ni-k gifts will be at the next Love What We Do event on Friday 28th September, from 9am onwards at
Godalming Borough Hall
