Soakin Skin presented their artisan natural eco wellness products, embodying a commitment to environmental consciousness. Cocos Corner tantalized taste buds with their baked cakes, while Yarnie Knots & Gems, and I Am Eve displayed an array of handcrafted jewelry, each piece a testament to individual expression.
Damilila Jewellery showcased meaningful jewelry pieces, and Craftspiration impressed with their bespoke, handcrafted jewelry. Visitors were also treated to the therapeutic and creative brilliance of Alison Herbart Art, focusing on the curative power of creativity in mental health and wellbeing.
Fashion and Skincare Wonders: Neon Afrique's African-inspired fashion, including accessories, bags, and dresses, added a vibrant flair to the market. Shortie Clothing UK's jumpers and hats were a hit, catering to the season's needs. Cleasskincare, a Yorkshire-based brand, showcased their natural skincare products, crafted with premium ingredients and a dash of love.
Empowering Communities: SEW UK's presence was particularly impactful, empowering single mothers through skills training, business capital, and school fee relief in Lira, Northern Uganda. Soaring with Didi's life coaching sessions were an inspiration, enabling individuals to embrace change and live fulfilling lives aligned with their core values.
