It’s nearly here… The Harpenden Collective (THC) Boutique Christmas Market
So why come and join us?
One of our passions, and we have many, is to provide local independents with a platform to connect with the local community and beyond.
By joining us, you are helping to support these small businesses, and what makes it so great is that they all have something different to offer.
It will take place from 6pm to 9pm on December 5 at The Coach House on Pipers Lane.
We love the fact that there is so much talent in Hertfordshire, and it only dawned on us when we set up The Harpenden Collective. We knew that there were other service businesses and like-minded people, and that’s where it all started – co-working and collaboration! Alongside the THC, we both run our other businesses. Natalie with her Design Agency and myself, a Private PA business. We’ve both been doing it for a long while, in London, and then to Herts with kids in tow.
Our membership has grown year on year, as well as our networks, and along the way we have met many talented and inspiring independents.
We knew there wasn’t a platform locally that catered for small boutique brands and, to top it, high street rents are out of the question.
So here we are, our second Christmas Market, this year our stalls were booked in a flash and we have a waitlist of people wanting to join us – just showing us how much talent there is.
We have only scratched the surface and hope next year will be even bigger.
We’ll be very surprised if you don’t know at least one person involved, from the venue host The Harpenden Skin Clinic, Emilio’s for food and drink, Carols by Voices Choir, our THC events team from SJL and St Georges, our THC members Sarah from The House Clinic, Natasha from Apothaka to all the amazing stallholders.
So, if you like supporting local and independent businesses, want to do some xmas shopping and have a drink or two, come join us at the Coach House on Pipers Lane from 18:00 by registering for your free ticket on our Facebook @harpendencollective. We will announce any updates here too.
