*** UPDATE MAY 2018 ***
Having spoken to the management at Make It York (who run the Shambles Market), they cannot guarantee that I will have a stall to trade from for the next few months, let alone longer term. They are discussing the removal of the block of stalls I trade from.
If this happens I'm likely to get very little notice, and may not have time to tell all of my customers that I will be moving my business to online only.
You'll notice over the next few weeks that I am removing all mention of my market stall from my website and promotional materials as I can't continue to promise customers that I'll be at the market. In the longer term I may also change my business address as I won't need the space I currently have. I am not going out of business, and I will continue trading online. I will still be based in York, and I will still offer excellent quality, value and customer service.
I'll be able to set up a click and collect option for Saturday mornings at the Originality Gallery, Rawcliffe Lane, York which will allow payment by cash for those who are not keen on online shopping, and also quick and easy returns and exchanges for those who live locally.
