Apply to be a Stallholder or Member
Are you a small, creative, British, independent business?
Do you want to develop your business and increase your online exposure whilst being part of a thriving indie community (all from the comfort of your sofa – PJs optional!)?
Do you create or design your products or services with love and care?
If so, Shop Small Love Indie online markets are the perfect solution.
The Shop Small Love Indie curated markets are hosted on our website, with an exciting range of categories, showcasing and celebrating the best of British creatives.
Benefits of becoming a Shop Small Love Indie Stallholder:
With up to 160 Stallholders involved, along with collaborative promotion, lots of new audiences will view your products. Our February market had over 24,000 views!
Market visitors are directed to your online shop to buy products, which gives visitors the chance to browse your whole shop. We take no commission on the sales you make!
A stress-free market experience as your submissions are completed well in advance of the market going live. We create Instagram post images for quick and easy promotion.
No more frantic postings when markets go live or the unpredictable exposure of markets hosted solely on social media.
No early starts, long days, lugging stock and all the other hard work of an in-person market. Exposure of your products to a worldwide audience, not just limited to the attendees of an in-person market.
As a general overview, you need to be over 18 with an Instagram account and an online shop for your small business (this can be through a third-party platform such as Etsy etc).
You also need to be the creator or designer of your products – we are not limiting the market to handmade items but you need to have been involved in the creation or design of your products.
Your product photography needs to be high quality with clear images.
The cost of each market is £15.
We ask each Stallholder to create an exclusive discount or offer code for each market, which cannot be found on your Instagram.
We ask each Stallholder to share 3 provided market branded images on Instagram on set dates to your grid and Stories and post to Stories whilst the market is live and tag @shopsmallloveindie.
Shop Small Love Indie heavily promotes the market on their social media channels and also undertakes paid advertising on social media and external event websites.
Our online markets are for you if:
You want to take part in large market (with up to 160 stallholders) where the market is website based. Your online stall on the website will contain your business details, exclusive offer code, online shop/Instagram links and up to 6 product images with direct links to your online shop.
You are happy to post 3 market branded images on your grid to help promote the market for the benefit of all stallholders.
Our online markets are not for you if:
You want to take part in an Instagram based market with individual/tagged Instagram promotion.
You are not happy to post the 3 market branded images on your grid.
Membership: Approved Stallholders are able to apply for our Membership, which gives entry into our Directory.
