THE HANDMADE FESTIVAL ONLINE
For the very first time, we took The Handmade Festival virtually in September 2020. The Handmade Festival Online is everything you know and love from the live event, from small businesses selling beautiful handmade wares to hands-on workshops and inspirational talks.
The biggest gifting season is approaching, so it’s the perfect time to promote your business to an audience who are ready and willing to spend money and shop. The Handmade Festival Online gives you the opportunity to showcase and sell your wonderful wares to targeted individuals.
A virtual event means we are not restricted to targeting visitors from a specific location, or even country!
“ I made way more sales than expected which after a few terrible
months I am over the moon with. Thank you for the opportunity and giving me a great boost! ” - Exhibitor
“ Wonderful selection of independent shops to buy from. I wish I had time to have bought more ” – Visitor
“ My Facebook and Instagram followers increased significantly over the weekend. I was pleased with the sales and the number of potential future buyers who may not have found my shop without The Handmade Festival! So thank you for organising it. ” – Exhibitor
“ Really loved browsing the shopping village and looking at the workshops available. I would visit some of the craft shops online again now that I have seen the products.” - Visitor
