So today was our first day on the market, the office was a mad rush as everyone ran around putting together the last bits and pieces of Leather Lane Stars produce. We had the sewing machine going at full speed adding the Leather Lane labels onto our bags and card holders.

Meanwhile, down at the market, our stalls were going up decorated with banners, flags and millions of badges all sporting the Leather Lane Stars logos. As the day went on, our stalls filled up with our custom bags, card holders and various bits and bobs all hand made in the Ash Sakula office.

It was great to see our stalls generating interest from the market goers at the lunch time rush hour.  To help gain support from the locals we walked down the market selling Leather Lanes Stars Flags to the local shops and businesses. It was really great to see the enthusiasm from some of the shopkeepers, cafe owners and stall holders who had some great ideas to help make leather lane the busy, bustling market it used to be.

We’re very excited for our event tonight at Craft Beer Co at 6pm where all the traders and local businesses are going to come together to share all their ideas and talk to the council about transforming Leather Lane Market.
