Happy New Year!
Caley’s Apothecary are offering a January special to help you ease into the new year and will help you feel better about any failed resolutions!
Time to Drink – Clean tea at £4!
It’s Stephanie’s special “detox” type blend, perfect for the January health goals, that contains Lemongrass, Green Tea, Nettle & Bilberries.
Stephanie is a medical herbalist and all her tea blends, which she creates herself, use only organic ingredients, and are produced in small batches.
Other blends that are available are
Time for Winter (a warming herbal tea that helps to keep colds at bay!),
Time to Digest,
Time to Relax
Time for Bliss (which is relaxing but uplifting).
Essential oils/aromatherapy is also available, plus culinary & medicinal herbs & spices, and gift sets.
Caley started bringing these products to markets and events, as people were always asking to buy things on a retail basis, rather than solely under consultation in the clinic, so she now offers both!

Did you Twist?
17 November 2015 was our 2nd Market
Thursday market may have started with rain but it cleared, and was declared by all to be a successful night.
Huy of SewUnique and Stephanie from Caley’s Apothercary share tips on standing behind a market stall when it does get cold (Lots of mini hand warmers and place in gloves and socks!), at least Huy has knitted hats to help if the temperature drops.
Jeanette Batchelor gave out lots of vouchers, chocolates and business cards as well talk about her products – Batch & Co (Better Health & Wealth) sells online too.
Kareen from Age Old Knowledge loves her organic healthy foods, oils, teas and more on her stall, which looks great too.
Chantel Lawrence looking rather stylish, which isn’t a surprise from someone who clearly loves Hollywood Great Ladies! The McCleary Project Ltd runs workshops on upholstery too.
Laura of SA(L)VAGE ART (formerly Decoupage Factory) brought her collages with her lovely with her decoupaged animals, talking about her work with a local customer.
West Norwood Therapies were there too.
You will always find a relative who
were forced to volunteered to man the stalls whilst the owner Patricia, runs off for coffee!
Dee’s Naturals had a wide variety of colours for her stylish screen printed clothing.
At each market we ask the stall holders, local business and the community for feedback – we want to listen and learn at every single event so that we can improve the market that helps everyone.
It has been decided that most of the stall traders will now be at ‘Twist Alley’ (which we coined ourselves!) – The alley actually belongs to Southern Rail and we will be writing about their involvement in Twist and the support they give to local communities.
The road leading to Tulse Hill Station, Station Rise will be kept free of the stalls so that we wont take up any parking bays.
We wish everyone a Merry Christmas
*****and say thank you to*****
the Mayor of London,
Tulse Hill Forum,
and of course, to all of our fabulous customers.
We look forward to seeing you all in January on the 28th 2016 from 3pm onwards.
So do you think it will Snow by then?
Happy New Year!
