Mustard UK celebrates one year in business with instaworthy pop up shop and launches charity partnership.
Instagram sensation Mustard Made UK is set to mark their first year in business with full day of small business inspiration in Londons, Covent Garden on 27th September .
Co founders Becca and Jess Stern of the locker brand Mustard decided that they wanted to be the kind of brand that is open and honest about their journey in the hope that it would inspire other young business owners and start ups. For the sisters, this means being transparent about the tough stuff but also taking time to share and celebrate the wins.
In a tough retail climate it’s refreshing to see a new business grow with speed and agility, navigating the online retail world and wholesale market at once both in the UK and around the world. With Becca living in Australia and Jess here in the UK, Mustard had the opportunity to launch globally by making use of their ever expanding social media presence. One year in and many containers of lockers now in homes and workspaces across the world, the pair wanted to mark the occasion with those that have helped and inspired them.
During the day the space will be open for all as customers are invited to meet and shop with some of Mustard’s favourite small businesses.
- Homewares from Antipodream , stocking colourful Australian brands.
- The hottest new lighting brand, House of .
- Handmade stationery from Oh Squirrel , creator of Oliver Bonas’ top selling cards.
- Indoor plants from the freshest plant delivery company, Beards and Daisies .
There will be two creative workshops and two informative ‘sofa sessions’.
“Our vision for the day is to scoop up everyone that comes along for the ride. Small business is both challenging and inspiring so we want to share what we’ve learnt, make connections, lift each other up and celebrate with a few gin and tonics!” says Becca.
The evening will be a chance to learn more about the new partnership between Mustard and Beam , a world first crowd-funding platform. Beam founder Alex Stephany will be talking about how they raise funds for people experiencing homelessness, becoming a vital bridge to getting people into work they can thrive in.
