Since 2010 SHOPFEST has hosted Craft, Gift & Lifestyle Fairs in Surrey, Sussex and Hampshire supporting thousands of small independent businesses and creatives, from artists, crafters and designers. We have also owned a Craft and Gift shop in the past which showcased a range of products from small independent businesses and creatives. We have a strong reputation for well organised, professional events that offer a selection of high quality, unique and fabulous products. We constantly receive feedback from our customers and exhibitors saying how impressed they are with the variety and quality of goods on offer. With the introduction of online events we have found our followers and exhibitors are from all over the UK and we would like to offer you the opportunity to join our community of exhibitors to promote and sell your products.

How it works:
The Market Place provides an advertising opportunity for your business with a live link to one chosen internet site. This could be your website or Instagram or Facebook or Etsy, etc. As the Market Place grows we may introduce categories if needed but at the moment we want to make it as simple as possible for customers to view.
If you would like to become an Exhibitor, please book here and we will send you a form to fill out which will ask you for the following information:
1. A clear sharp image
3. Business title and tag line
4. Brief business description or Bio.
5. Business Internet Link to your chosen site.
6. Product Classification Eg Handmade. Non'Handmade and a sub-classification (e.g. Fashion, Jewellery, Homeware, Garden etc.) .
We will then create your online advertisement for your business in The Market Place . We will advise you when it is 'Live'. Customers will then shop and contact you directly.
