My 10 Favourite Things About Christmas

Last year I wrote all about my favourite things about Christmas. I got so many lovely comments from people that I have decided to share it with you again. This is my final blog before Christmas. Over the last few weeks I have written about my order lead times, why it

Ordering Early

With this being only my second Christmas with Two Green Lane, I still sometimes think more as a customer than a business owner when it comes to Christmas. If I Continue Reading

Discovering the world of online marketplaces

  Running a personalised business, I have to plan ahead with Christmas and order cut off times are a lot sooner than if I sold pre-made items. As a result I was looking on one of the Kent Trader forums on Facebook for inspiration for Christmas events and saw an advert for an online market… Continue Reading

Why I started Two Green Lane

  When I launched my business I was very diligent in writing a blog once a week. I then changed the frequency to every 2 weeks and unsurprisingly it has now been a few months since I wrote a few words. Call it a mid-year resolution, but I Continue Reading

A Weekend by the Sea

After the previous weekend being part of the Wealden Times Midwinter Fair with over 200 stall holders and grand elaborate stands, this weekend we experienced a very different craft fair. We packed up our jewellery and headed down to Rye Harbour for a weekend by the sea. Every year, Avocet Gallery in Rye Harbour put… Continue Reading

Our First Craft Fair

  It finally arrived, our first craft fair. And what a way to start, with the Wealden Times Midwinter Fair. I have plenty of experience in trade shows so felt fairly prepared, even if the experience was in beer trade shows. However, the first learning was that they are very different. We spent a lot… Continue Reading
