Busy getting Social

This month I’ve set up some new places to find out about our market on the web.

We now have a Facebook page. Our Facebook group is still there and full of lovely discussions but we wanted somewhere to easily share our markets and stallholders work with fans, plus find some new fans along the way.

We also have Instagram. We’ll be using this to post pics of our market days and share brilliant work by our stallholders.

Ever wondered how to spot the Make & Mend?

72907856

This might just be an excuse to show off the sign, I’m proud of it. You’ll see our sign outside the doors of the Star and Shadow or beside the Nun Street entrance to the Grainger Market.

We’re really easy to find. If you’re in the Grainger Market head towards the entrance opposite the new Eldon Square bit, we’re in the exhibition space there, right beside the flower stalls. Come by and say hello at our next market on the 2nd February. We’re also back there again on the 2nd March, nice.

How about when we’re at the Star and Shadow? We’re right inside the doors! But also in the bar space. Our next event at the Star and Shadow is a special Vintage and Spring Fashion event on the 17th March, keep your eyes open for more details on that one soon.
