HAM MADE

Calling all local artisans and craftspeople!

Are you a small-scale local artist or craftsperson who lives in the boroughs of Kingston or Richmond? Do you knit, sew, paint or otherwise create lovely things that you would like to sell, but don’t produce enough to warrant the cost of a market stall?  HAM MADE might be for you!

What?
We at Ham Parade Market are launching a label ‘HAM MADE’ to shine a light on the wonderful creative talent in our local area.

Why?
During the mere four months that we have been in operation, we’ve come to realise that there is an abundance of untapped talent in our local area. We’ve been contacted by people who want to sell their crafts but lack the economies of scale to fund a whole stall, or who are looking for a way to test the market as the first step to launching a business.  We want to help you!

What we will do for you:
Brand, market and sell your products on our stall at Ham Parade Market (and possibly further afield – watch this space), covering the licence fee, gazebo, dressing and other logistics.  In return, we take 20% of all profits, to cover our costs. There are no costs whatsoever to you – if you sell something, you get some cash. If you don’t sell anything, you learn something for next time. You’re welcome to help man the stall on market day if that interests you, but you’re under no obligation to do so.

What you need to do:
Send in a blurb about yourself, some pictures of what you make, your email/phone/address, via the form below.  We will curate the offering to make sure we have a consistent quality and that we don’t end up with 1,000 tea cosies. If your stuff fits the bill, we’ll invite you to sell it at the next Ham Parade Market.

If you have any questions, email us on info@hamparademarket.org.

We are very excited about this project and can’t wait to hear from you!
