White Country Crafts

from Ruth Gettings of White Country Crafts:
  • I am opening a craft shop in Kanturk which will be called White Country Crafts selling local – preferably Duhallow -crafts. I am looking for quality suppliers – small or large volume – to sell their crafts there. I would provide up to one section of slatwall 8′ x4′ and suppliers could put their own small table in front of that with whatever display and promotional material they want. You wouldn’t have to be in the shop personally!!! I would be asking a small weekly fee or small % which ever suits people best. Planning to open on 2nd August or if not certainly 11th August for my birthday!! Obviously cant tell how it will go or promise anything with regard to sales etc but the shop is on the main street right opposite pedestrian crossing so good footfall.
  • I only intend to have one supplier of each craft unless widely different. I myself make crochet blankets, knitted hats and a few baby cardigans and small cards.
  • I have 3rd party insurance but would be up to each supplier to insure goods – or not – as they wish.
  • If you are interested or have any questions or suggestions please email me at <email> or call (029) 58843 or (086)3183961.
