I am a huge proponent of small businesses and know, first hand, how tough it is to get started and to make any money from your passion.
Therefore, I aim to share the premises I am renting with other local businesses as a Marketplace. An affordable, busy and friendly place to shop.
I have several vendors lined up, including a florist, make-up artist, Consignment Store, a “Pound Shop” and a “Plastics-Free Products” stall
Additionally, I am opening a small cafe to serve our lovely, and quickly growing, community. I’m planning Senior Days (with volunteers to pick up and drop off), a teen-friendly environment and countless theme evenings (clubs, meetings, fun events)
Though I have managed to build up the shop quite a bit using my own two hands, the ability to scrounge supplies and zero budget, I just need a little help to push this amazing project up to the opening stage!
Not only will this be a fantastic retail/social experience for locals and visitors, it will also provide jobs, expanding small, local businesses and make excellent use of a cracking old building that has been empty for far too long!
Please help me complete this project
