We have changed our minds and decided not to do the Gerrards Cross Little Fox Market in on 24th April.
Basically, this will be the second installment of a new Little Fox Market event, and as many of the markets we have done recently haven’t been amazing, we thought it would be better to concentrate on other areas (like Battlers Green Farm which has a steady flow of visitors all year round) and wait for these new markets to become a bit more established. We also want a bit of time to learn some more about soaping technique and aromatherapy. (I recently did the Neal’s Yard Intro to Aromatherapy and we have another course booked in May).
Sometimes you feel loyal to a market or venue because you’ve done it for a long time, or you feel you want to support a new start-up, but at the end of the day, when you are paying to be somewhere to sell your goods, it is better to be a bit more discerning. It is a little soul destroying when you spend hours making products, then all day in a hall somewhere and don’t even make your pitch money back! We do hope to get back to Rickmansworth Little Fox, hopefully when it is in a better location. But we won’t sit back and do nothing – we will continue to spread the word and champion these little gems!
