KidsARCADE is a brand new children’s lifestyle shopping fair showcasing a collection of exciting independent brands from the world of fashion, interiors, toys and everything in between. It is the brainchild of Rachel Bisiker, a Creative Consultant and Fran Lee, a Stylist, who were wanting to bring the brands they love to the areas that don’t know about them, whilst supporting local independents and businesses at the same time.
KidsARCADE will launch its first ever event: The Cotswold Edition in Burford, Oxfordshire on Saturday 6th June 2015. All exhibitors have been carefully curated and chosen by Rachel and Fran to suit their audience in the Cotswolds. The event will be predominantly be made up of small independent designers including Raspberry Plum, Tulipop, Milk & Biscuits, Lily + Sid, Muna London, Crafty Wrens and more.
It is for parents who excitedly wander through market towns and side streets hoping to treat their babies, toddlers or older children to a pair of beautifully made shoes, a must-have coat, or even to discover a unique children’s boutique, only for their search to end in disappointment. It is for those who are disheartened with the endless surfing, searching and uncertainty of online shopping. Those who want the immediacy of touch, look and feel when buying something; For those who want to connect with the makers and experience something tangible again.
We are not encouraging people to spend huge amounts of money on designer labels.
We are championing talented small labels out there that are creating a huge and interesting children’s market and getting them to sell their wares direct to the public who may not be aware that they exist. It’s about beautiful handmade clothing from a mum who’s at home setting up a small online company. There are talented mothers out there who have turned their talents/hobbies into creating beautiful things for little people who will love them!
As well as kids fashion and lifestyle products on sale, there will also be food and drink available, a pop up photobooth, model agency scouts and fun activities to keep the children entertained while you shop.
