First Mail Chimp Dandy Lion Market Newsletter!
OMG! This was a learning curve, and has taken me all day (not to mention several other starts and bursts on other occasions, culminating in giving up and putting to one side) Finally created my first Mail Chimp newsletter, and I'm pretty damn proud of it. Hope you agree! (It is a bit long, but what the hey).

Starting in a fresh new home at the Oxford, in Kentish Town, the Relaunch on the 1st Sept was a great success!
We said hello to loyal friends and fans and saw many new faces come through the doors, too. A naturally busy shopping area, Kentish Town offers huge potential for the burgeoning Dandy market scene, and even though it was the last weekend of the summer holidays, the footfall was a vast improvement from our previous home. The Boogaloo was a fab venue, but just not the right location. So, here's looking forward with hope and enthusiasm!
When you arrive at the pub you will find 2 fabulous traders, representative of the rest of the market, at the ground floor entrance. Buy a drink and some bar snacks and bring them upstairs to the main market space. There is a lounge area specially set up for drinking, resting and socialising. Club, Classic and Alternative sounds through the decades will gently groove and move you. Browse through a beautiful and different array each month of: handmade crafts; fine, illustrative and graphic arts; interior and decorative wares; body products; upcycled & recycled creations; vintage fashion, accessories, jewellery & collectibles. Find something new each month, something special and unique, for yourself or as a gift. They always say the best gifts to give are those you'd like to keep for yourself! Grab a proper gastro meal before, during or after!
