Trader Profile - Day Seventeen
Throughout the month of November we will be highlighting our wonderful traders and their wares. Lockdown means that we can’t visit in person but most of these businesses have online stores where you can browse (and purchase!) from the comfort of your own home. That perfect Christmas gift is just one small click away!
Many of our craft and clothing traders source and deal abroad and had placed their orders long before the pandemic took hold. They really could do with your help in moving some stock.
So, without further ado…
GLOBAL EMPORIUM & FOLK FAYRE/FLORIN
Wendy, Charlie and Andrew have been sharing their stall by Jonah’s Oak in the arena for many years now. A really popular, colourful stall with beautiful jewellery, festival clothing and blankets etc. Check out the ETSY shop page above plus the brand new website. More items being added daily.
Better still, once lockdown is over - and if you happen to be near the Somerset Levels - why not pop in and visit Charlie in his shop?

“All our goods are bought in the country of origin. Wendy travels to Thailand, Nepal and India to buy our stock. She knows where it is all made and can guarantee that none of the workers involved in the manufacturing process are in any way pressured by greedy bosses. She also designs many of the products”
Again, with the Summer Festivals cancelled this year and now the Christmas Markets following suit, all our traders are feeling pretty vulnerable at the moment. Please spare a couple of minutes to visit their websites.
