Virtual small business Christmas market
Local small businesses are being given the opportunity to take part in one of the UK's largest online festive markets.
Taking place on 4 and 5 December, market spaces are free and will introduce your products and services to thousands of customers. And, if you don't want to be a seller you can still visit the event as a customer -wander around, shop and enjoy the festive spirit.
Apply to sell
If you are a small business with a product or service to sell, apply to join Gifted - the Small Business Christmas market taking place on 4 and 5 December.
Have a free virtual booth at the event and direct thousands of customers to buy from you.
There is no cost to participate in the market - the only commitment is your time. Each seller will be expected to sell on Friday (4th) and Saturday (5th) December. You can do this by attending the market in person (virtually!) or playing a video of your products so customers can browse. You will also be profiled in a market catalogue that will be distributed widely.
