Norfolk Girl Power Duo
2 Norfolk women join together to support Norfolk small businesses this festive season
Two amazing women have come together to turn the disappointments of local businesses following Lockdown 2.0 of festive markets and fairs being cancelled this season and have turned into a positive story by pivoting and using their strengths to launch The Norfolk Creative Box – gift boxes of varying budgets filled with beautiful and curated products from Norfolk makers.
The 2 talented ladies Kerri Williams-Moore and Carol Robinson met up to discuss what to do about lockdown making physical markets impossible and that virtual markets were over saturated not getting as much uptake as they did when lockdown started back in March, and over a coffee (the day before lockdown started) came up with this collaborative approach.
We feel there is such talent in small businesses in Norfolk and we want to showcase their offerings. There’s also a real appetite to support small businesses in these unusual times. Plus, with the physical barrier of not being as easily able to go out to shop we wanted to make it easier for people to find a one of a kind gift boxes for the people they love.
So, The Norfolk Creative Box was created:
Handmade, Locally Sourced, Affordable Products – put in an easy online gift box to send to your friends and family – which we will send direct to the recipient all gift wrapped and ready to be opened – saving time for the shopper.
The two professional women all come from different backgrounds and bring their own unique strengths to the venture which makes it more powerful as a partnership:
- Kerri brings an amazing enthusiasm, event management expertise, social media prowess and style,
- Carol is the positive promoter, runs three businesses and is the organiser and networker of the pair.
It’s all about celebrating and showcasing the talents of Norfolk in one place. At The Norfolk Creative Box, we guarantee that every single purchase you make will be a seamless process from start to finish.
Shop small, shop Norfolk this Christmas.
I hope this is something you’d like to support and feature.
