Home and Gift Markets - Leicestershire
When we first started Florence and Bow we identified events as a great way to sell our products, meet new customers and meet like minded, creative, small business owners in Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire.
Some of the events we have attended over the past couple of years have been amazing and really worthwhile for our business. However, lots left us feeling a little disappointed. A bad mix of poor organisation, very little promotion and low visitor numbers left us feeling as though we had wasted our valuable time. Anyone else who runs a small business will appreciate how precious time can be.
Sitting back and having a good moan about things isn't really our style, so we set to work in planning out what our events would look like if we held our own. At this point we were heading towards the Christmas season, and what better time to plan a shopping event than Christmas!?
We started small with our first event, holding it over an evening at The Old Stables in Swithland. We were completely overwhelmed with how many people turned up to the event. It really did surpass everyones expectations and we were so pleased to be able to offer all of our visitors some great stalls and products to view. Our stall holders for this event included:
Due to the success of the Christmas Shopping Event we decided to hold another. Our Spring Shopping Event was held in March at The Pumping Station in Cropston. We were once again delighted to have so many lovely visitors to our event. We also had a great number of stall holders too, who this time included:
- Yummy Little Cakes / RubyLou’s Treat Co
- Polly and Me
- Claude & Co
- Fleurs en Fleur
- Burleigh's Gin
- Lemony Bird
- Just Jules
- Lovelea Wood
- Frizz & Freckles
- Emma Katie
- Isabelle’s Bowtique
- Style Barn
- Katie Jane Studio
- Ann Charlish Studio (Molly Mop)
- Country Abodes

The demand for these home, gift and food events in Leicestershire is growing from both stall holders and visitors. We will be holding a Christmas Shopping Event in November so If you would like more information as a stall holder please contact us via our contact form here or fill out our stall holder application form here.
