Soho Flea Market, Sunday 25th May 2014

Posted on May 21, 2014 by Tom Malcolm Green

This Sunday we will be selling our candles at the Soho Flea Market. Billed as the UK's premier artisan and designer crafts event, it looks set to be a fantastic day of summer festivities. Filled with incredible stalls selling everything from fashion to furniture mixed together with an amazing array of London's best street food and a great line up of music all thrown in for good measure.

Alongside our very own range of luxury scented candles will be casual wear from Plane Clothing, jewellery from Storm in a Teacup, bags from Beara Beara, ceramics from Jimbobart, homeware from Victoria Eggs, vintage inspired fashion from Teastained Lil and a whole lot more. The full line up can be seen on the event website here and you may very well pick up the perfect Father's Day present ahead of the mad rush.

The Meringue Girls, Hix's Fish Dog, Pizza Pilgrims and the Pit Stop Cafe will be amongst those whetting your appetites with their delicious selections of street food to keep you energised throughout the day.

Supported by The Groucho Club, Soho House group, Dean Street Studios and Quo Vadis amongst others, it will certainly be a day to remember. Last year more than 15,000 people attended, doubling the number from its inaugural year in 2012. All the action starts at 11am and goes on until 7pm, ensuring that there is plenty of time to get round all the stalls and really get stuck in.

Come and find us if you're in the area, we'll be outside Black's Club on Dean Street with an exciting new look stand to show off! The nearest tube stations are Leicester Square and Tottenham Court Road.

PopUp Piccadilly goes live!

Posted on November 06, 2013 by Wick & Tallow

It's been a busy couple of days since we were asked to take part in PopUp Piccadilly, however, our store is now all set up and looking great! We have had an amazing day working with some incredible people who have been helping out with visual merchandising, bringing a wealth of experience from the retail world including department stores such as John Lewis and Selfridges. It's an eye catching set up, particularly when you see it in the flesh surrounded by all the other wares being sold by the companies we're sharing the space with. There's a great mix of products carefully selected by the PopUp Britain organisers, which together make for a fantastic shop to help you with your Christmas shopping! 

 

 

The doors open tomorrow (Thursday) from 10am and we will be trading daily (including the weekend) until the end of opening hours on Wednesday 13th November. If you haven't had the opportunity to come and see our candles and experience the scents yet then this is it!

We very much look forward to seeing you there and hope you'll leave with some great Christmas presents!
