A few of the goodies available at Twist on Station Rise Market April 2016
A newbie will be with our regular Twistees tonight – Blooming Brixton (website under construction) Will Kerr will be showing his handmade concrete planters and Victorian pre 1910 pots with succulents that are mostly grown from seed as well as a few other hardy favourites that are ideal for flats and homes without gardens… but also great for the british weather
Will has previously managed the McQueens Floristry shop at Claridges and provided for many events for celebrities and is starting up on his own to bring his stylish creations to weddings, special events, and individuals who appreciate fine Floristry.
Will can be contacted on firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or requests.
He also offers Gardening Services and advice sessions.
We love how community market brings out the best in friends and family – George of Elia Olive Oil had his Mum on hand to help, hope she gets a great Mothers day gift!
Gemma of Spotty Duck talking about her wares…
… whilst sneaking her textile flowers onto Floral Hall’s stall… naughty Duck!
Fab colours from Floral Hall’s stall which helped to take people’s mind of the chilly evening.
Patricia of Whyte Bells certainly knows how to present her handmade health and beauty products.
Jen would love to see you and If you pop by & show her this screen grab – either from this website or from the facebook page., then you get 15 % off if you order & buy any product on the day .
You can thank her when you see her!

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!
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.
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!

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.
