We will be creating an I Do Handmade Small Biz Village branded zone at both exhibitions in Scotland and London. The village will be home to 24 handmade brands offering a variety of talent and bespoke gift ideas.

This pop-up will be a flexible opportunity for small businesses, apply for a stall for just one day, or for every day of both shows. The aim of this pop-up is to help reduce the price of selling in this environment for small businesses, to see if this show is worth a future investment for your own kiosk.

Each small business…
- Will have their own named stall, selling their own products in a similar fashion to typical markets and fairs
- Will take payments directly at their stall, from the customer using their own wireless payment readers
- Will set up their stall in the morning from 8am before opening to the public, creating a professional looking display (unfortunately there will be no access the night before) and pack up their stall at 5pm
- Will take home 100% of your takings of whatever you sell

About the stalls
- We will be using the same setup and stall furniture you see pictured for both events in Scotland and London.
-Each small business will have one brown wooden stall units shown below.
- Each stall will have the business’ name printed and displayed above them
- Each stall will also have an ‘I Do Handmade Small Biz Village’ logo on the front, in the middle like on the blue wooden picture, slightly smaller than the ‘Phat Pastry Co’ logo (please note our stalls will be brown not blue)
- The stall measures 1.8m wide, 90cm high, 61cm deep
- When behind the stall, each stall has open storage underneath. This storage space will be for all your belongings, stock and personal items on the day (there is no other storage facility) Please ensure everything you bring will fit underneath neatly, and does not post a trip hazard)
- Every stall at The Ideal Home Show must have lighting, therefore each stall will have fairy lights and/or other wireless lighting strips (exact type to be confirmed), you are welcome to bring your own wireless lights in addition

What products can be sold at The Small Biz Village?

Despite it being called the Ideal Home Show, this national show is home to products from across the board. This includes jewellery, beauty, stationery, clothing (although please note there is not enough space to bring along clothing rails). The more unique your products the better. We envisage the village to be a selection of artisan handmade products not easily found on the high street.

What products cannot be sold at The Small Biz Village?

The only product type which we are not allowed to sell at the village is food and drink. This is due to there being a dedicated space for food and drink vendors unfortunately not near our location. Therefore if you sell food or drink, your application will be unsuccessful.

Why pop-up with us at The Ideal Home Show?
Booking your own booth at these renowned national shows can cost businesses anything from £2000 up to £10,000+ to take part. You are usually responsible to fit out your booth with furniture, walls, carpet, electricity, branding, and have to be there 4 days in a row, which can be difficult for business owners with families and other responsibilities.

This concept we are creating is designed to help handmade brands pay less, offer flexibility and the chance to test this sales environment with less financial risk, to know if this is a successful sales environment for your handmade brand.

Any rules about having a stall at The Ideal Home Show?
- Your business is based in the UK
- You must sell handmade products, either made by yourself or someone else. Your products must have some element of personalisation done by hand. Items which have been bought from a manufacturer/wholesalers will not be allowed to be sold here. The Small Biz Village will be for handmade artisan brands. Not sure you fit the bill? Drop us a message and we can let you know.
- You’ll need to have minimum £1m public liability insurance valid on the date(s) you book (If you don’t have public liability insurance, Events Insurance or Protectivity offer one-day policies from £30)
- Due to the extensive work involved, once stall bookings are confirmed, they are non-exchangeable, non-refundable. If you are unable to attend for any reason, we will not be able to offer a replacement stall at another pop-up nor can you give your stall to another brand to have.
- No children can be brought with you or behind the stalls, everyone must be aged 16+, children are of course able to visit you at the event (ticket would need to be purchased)
- No music/ lit candles/ burning of incense/ handwritten paper signs or unprofessional signage.
- Two people max behind each stall at any time, you are welcome to have additional staff rotate throughout the day. We will ask you for a list of all attendees working at your stall in advance of the event.
- Stalls must be hosted by one brand only, unfortunately two companies cannot share a stall.
- Unfortunately no floor standing clothing rails or pull up banners can be brought, everything needs to go on top of your stall.
- Finally, you will need to be set up promptly for spot checks by Ideal Home Show management at the opening hours (10am for Scotland, 9am for London), and your stall will need to be open until closing at 5pm. You cannot leave earlier than 5pm.
