Opportunity - Calling Designer-makers in Lincolnshire

Hi All,

I've been contacted by Laura who is the owner of Pink Power Photography & Gifts in the Bailgate area of Lincoln. Laura sells her own photo art via her retail store along with many handmade crafts from local artisans. Laura is now looking to expand the products her store stocks and is seeking designer-makers in all crafts, in particular she in seeking makers of plushies, sock monkeys and children's gifts.

You must be based in Lincolnshire and be happy to work on a consignment / commission basis. For full details please contact Laura directly via

Laura is not looking for photography & greetings cards at this point in time as Laura's own products cover these categories.

This is a great opportunity if you are seeking to start on the road to wholesaling or are looking to increase your current stockists.
