Calling makers of Charlton: Get involved with Around The Corner Market

News from The Corner at 96 in Bramshot Avenue about a lockdown plan to bring hand made and hand grown produce to the neighbourhood on July 4th:

The Corner at 96 has opened as a pop-up shop in Charlton on a fairly regular basis for the last two years, selling gifts and homewares, handmade by locals. We’ve regularly featured studio ceramics, hand knits, jewellery, children’s clothes & accessories, paintings and photography as well as soaps and toiletries.

Whilst we’ve been locked down, some of our regular makers have had success with sales from home, combining the highlighting of an online website with a stall set up in the garden. So we thought we’d try and gather all our local makers together on the same day for a trail to highlight our hand makes, whatever it is you do! It will be July 4th and we hope to create a Google Maps route between makers selling in outside spaces, which we’ll then be promoting ourselves and via each maker. We’re looking for hand mades or hand grown.

We’ve put a sheet together to explain, including checks you’ll need to make to stay legal. Drop us a line at thecornerse7 [@] gmail.com and we’ll get you joined up!

Then, spread the word – encourage your friends and family along, let’s hope it’s a lovely day of walking, discovery & great sales. The map link will be posted as widely as we can from this Saturday.

New Charlton Champion postcards available this weekend at the Corner at 96 pop-up shop

Spring’s here (if we ignore the occasional flurry of sleet) and it’s time for a new Charlton Champion postcard: this time a view of Charlton House in the March sun.

Our last postcard sale exceeded our expectations and it was really nice to meet some of the readers who bought them – these sales all help to keep this site running.

You’ll be able to buy copies from our friends at The Corner at 96 who will be opening their pop-up shop this weekend (and the first weekend of every month), Friday-Sunday. And if you can’t get to the shop you can order Charlton Champion postcards online here (you may need to wait until the end of next week for delivery, though).

You’ll find The Corner At 96 pop-up shop on the corner of Bramshot Avenue and Sherington Road, and it’ll be open 8.30-5 Friday and Saturday, 10-5 Sunday.
